Our high-flying dear friend Bob Pink Jr. is temporarily grounded due to an accident that took Double Happiness and his truck to the intensive care ward. <b>Thank God</b> he came out of it without personal injury. (In fact it reinforces my faith on this fine Sunday morning)

Now that "Mr.right stuff" will have two feet on the ground for a while, let's invite him to join us on more of our shore-bound adventures. In fact I'll invite him on Rip Trip II, August 25th (Fri) due to a surprise opening.

If you've got something going you might invite Bob while he gets things sorted out.

Glad you're OK Bob, and sorry to hear about the accident.

yeah, down but fortunatly not out. As it turned out I was very fortunate to have walked away given all the kinetic energy flying around me at 4:40 saturday morning. So, sounds like a rip-trip is just the ticket. Let me see what the work schedule is like and I'll look to commit (or free the slot up for someone else) by Monday.
Hope to see you on (or in) the water soon.

Glad you're OK Mr. Pink.

Having had a trout trip this spring not even start due to a crash, I know what it's like.

See you Friday (hopefully)

Yo Bob,
Glad all is ok. If things light up on Joppa or Ipswich you can do a tour in my green shallow craft. Let me know if I can help at all.


i'm so outta here

Bob - sorry to hear of your mishap and enormously relieved to hear of your healthy emergence from the ordeal. Equipment is replaceable, you are certainly not!

Here's hoping your truck and trailer make a speedy recovery.

Wrecks really REALLY suck. I've been in couple bad ones.

Thank God you're OK!

Bob- Saw your misfortune on my way down to woodshole saturday am. I try to get down there two or three times a week now that the funny fish are around. If you get the itch drop me a line. Plenty of room on the boat for you or any one else from the board for that matter.

So sorry to hear about your misfortune and so glad to hear you walked away at least physically unscathed. Here's hoping your truck and boat have a speedy recovery.

Sorry a bout your misfortune & glad your OK. We are going to be at a cottage ON Bass River for the week of Aug. 26th - Sept 2nd. If you want to hook up email me or Al_D for cell phone & cottage phone #'s. I will be recoving from Gall Bladder surgery & I'm not sure how much fishing/boating I'll be able to do, especially the beginning of the week. I think Fly casting's going to be out, but some trollling & light spin should be OK.
