All's well

Everything has been going great down here. Our only problem right now is too much work, and we're not complaining. I don't think either Kristin or I will make it back this year. It's too bad because it's going to be a hell of a summer. Maybe we'll figure something out to get back for a week or so.

Come on Brian, I know you know some Class V boaters that can appreciate a green thumb! Now if they know how to fix a diesel and turn palm oil into fuel they've got a job.

Matt are you going to make this worth my while? If my awesome A-1 office skills have me answering phones 3 days a week and then I guide 5 days a week, by my calculations I have -1 days a week to kayak. Oh and I killed our basil plant.

I dunno

I don't think I have the ability to compensate someone with such highly developed skill as yours, Kevin. I would like to point out that if you grow out that mullet you'd fit in quite nicely here. Habla espanol, Me padre real?
