    Friday was such an amazing day. I have been emailing and PMing with Ahron. He was here for a convention in Las Vegas and we worked out a way to meet on his way to LAX. 

    This is a man I will be friends with for a long time. He is a genuinely nice person. We met at a restaurant in Ontario and spent the better part of 3 hours getting to know each other and to share some great commonalities. 

    Ahron is an amazing man with some awesome history. He is first and foremost a family man and I am a better man for getting to know him. 

    Thank you my friend for taking the time to meet with me and spend some time with me. 

    I treasure our time together and will do my best to come and visit your amazing family. 

    Your stories have already been shared with my family 

    Thank you for taking the time to meet me and to spend some time together

    I am also envious!!  With the chattin back and forth on here, I feel almost akin to Ahron.  I bet that table at the cafe would of been a great place for a lil FLY-ON-DA-WALL, with video and sound!!  LOLOL  Very happy for you Gary, and next time, me thinks that convention should be in Anchorage so I can be blessed with his presence..

    Hey Rich

    There was some conversation about him wanting to go fishing up in your neck of the woods so you might get that time with him afterall.

    The poor waitress would come by every 15 minutes or so and refill our sodas and check on us - we finally apologized to her for taking so long to order and to eat. In the end in the end I doubled her tip to make up for some of the lost table turns. She was a real cutie so it was not hard to hang at her section. LOL

    He has mentioned that to me as well, and I sure hope it becomes a reality.  I have some very good friends that guide for fish and I am sure, the honey-holes will be hit and used to the fullest.
