* Crossbow Decommissioned

In an ongoing effort to keep the garbage gym/gear room clutter free, organized, and usable, I decided to decommission the old piece of shit Crossbow Resistance Machine I bought about 10 years ago. At some point they must have been sued for trademark infringement, or something similar, because not long after I got this the name changed. I'm not sure what they are called now, or if they are still being manufactured.

The thing never did work very well and after I learned more about olympic lifts and Crossfit style fitness, I never used it except for the rowing feature. Glad it's gone and there is more room to throw rubber plates and iron (kettle bells)!

* Thanksgiving Day Fishing

Thanksgiving Day fishing at Lake Sonoma. We didn't locate any fish, but had fun being out with Wyatt on another nice November day.

We motored up the Dry Creek arm looking for trout, but hooked nothing up there either. 

We also took a cruise up the Cherry Creek arm to the boat-in campgrounds to get an idea of how low the water is. Well...it's low! Pretty bad.

* Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
