Leaving for India

Ananth arranged a Limo to take us to O'hare! It was cheaper than riding the bus and picked us up from home!

More Hunting!

While hunting up at Gene's I finally managed to put an arrow through a deer! Only took 9 years of bowhunting! I don't have a picture because Kristi had the camera with her in Florida while visiting her brother. Guess I'll be leaving the camera at home from now on if it changes my luck!

Now this: From Randy Winberg...

Just think hunters all over the USA spend millions of dollars a year on
equipment, fertilizers, water, grass seeds, sod, soybeans, corn, etc. to

lure deer to their hunting blind, when all you really need is good

Fishing on Lake Michigan

Nikelle, Tristan, Randy, Kristi, and Dave spent an evening fishing for Salmon on Lake Michigan.
It was a beautiful night to be out on the water and 12 fish made it into the cooler! Shane was working and Mikaela did not feel up to going after having a flu bug :(
