I am ready to "Boondoggle" - a weekend of fun, fishing, and fellowship with other kayak anglers.
This is 'technically' my first Boondoggle, as far as traveling goes. The first one I had experienced was here in my hometown of Charleston. I didn't get to go to Chokoloskee, so I made a promise to myself to go to the next one - wherever it may be held.
The people make the Boondoggle. At the Charleston Boondoggle, it was good to finally put faces to user ID's - the fact that they were a friendly-lot made it easy to be comfortable around them. I have discovered that kayak fishing folks are a very easy-going bunch and welcome newcomers with open arms - one thing I love about this sport.
I look forward to meeting you all this weekend in Virginia! Let the Boondoggle commence...
