A Few Good Men & Women

Several friends & family members have dedicated hours of their time to help us get our boat ready for our Yukon River Trip.  We are so thankful for everyone's help & support in trip preparations.

Josh & Erin (Jake's brother & our sister-in-law) spent an early April day painting the boat with us.

 Josh chose the colors and taped out an awesome camo design for our boat.

The next day Jake & I did a bit more work and painting.

At the end of April and after the rains, our neighbors pitched in on a Saturday and helped us.  Carl and JR helped Jake with attaching the oar locks and mounting the pontoon motor.  Karis helped me finish out the interior paint job.
