Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

No worries, I'll even join you on Owasco lake. I have a Honda Odyssey with a tow package (no transmission cooler though). I can tow about 3,200 safely if you ever need a tow and your s/v isn't too...

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

LOL - good one! My wife is being very tolerant of my skipperish behavior so far. She doesn't know how much I tone it down around the house so I don't go overboard (no pun intended). Thank God...
