  1. Just learned we got our PPP funding. 25k, which will cover payroll for about 6 weeks. We’ll do good work for our community with that money and will come out of this mess ready to kick ass and help people pick up the pieces.
  2. Not in NJ
  3. After years of beating on trout that can top ten pounds in upstate NY, it’s really hard to get excited about 9” stockies. I lived a mile from the Flatbrook for over 20 years and rarely fished it. This year I took my granddaughter out. There are a few tributaries to the Paulinskill right here in town and took a walk a few times. It’s amazing how much fun something can be when it’s brand new to the kid you’re doing it with. The girl can fish and loved it! I’m sure she’ll be heading upstate with me in a few years.
  4. The application acceptance system choked yesterday. Apparently it just couldn’t handle the volume and lenders were having trouble uploading their clients’ apps. My bank said they are backlogged and doing their best, but they can’t do anything about the SBA’s ability to accept documents. Hoping to see our application go in today or tomorrow from either our bank or PayPal.
  5. Our bank left the application for our therapy practice sitting for 9 days until the funding ran out. Wtf...... it’s now done with underwriting and is ready to submit. Applied through PayPal yesterday and DocuSigned the papers today. What a difference! Hoping one of these applications will make the cut and allow me to restore my counselors to their full time salaries. We plan to have them donate any time they have left after seeing clients to work with people who aren’t handling the lock down well.
  6. Major gardening effort this year that includes planting 8 blueberry, 8 raspberry, and two gooseberry plants in an area we’re putting together. It’s about 12x30 and will be surrounded by wire with netting that goes over the top when the berries start to ripen. If we get the wire up today the plants will go in. Strawberries are in raised beds inside our main garden area, surrounded by the fence you see at the back of the blueberry enclosure. We put in 40 plants two weeks ago. They’ll get netting or floating row covers when they start producing next year. The rest of the garden seems to do ok in without protection beyond being fenced in.
  7. Sure. PM me your info please
  8. $225?
  9. We were planning to go this year and I had hotel reservations to make a nice weekend of it. One of the kids decided to make some bad choices though, so now we’re sticking close to home to keep an eye on things. Next year.....
  10. No charter: we’re renting center consoles. I’m taking them snorkeling and fishing both days we have the boats.
  11. Thanks gents. I don’t mind spending the money. These boys will already be using a lot of gear that’s been donated by SOL members over the years.
  12. I’m taking a group of Boy Scouts into the Keys in July. I need to add to my gear in order to outfit two boats we’re renting for a few days. We’re targeting small to mid sized game for the most part (snapper, jacks, ‘cudas), with a few hours spent chasing sharks. Any suggestions on reasonably priced spinning rods for a trip like this? Am I crazy to think I could get away with Ugly Sticks for everything except the sharking rods?
  13. Agreed
  14. I’ll pass, but thanks.
  15. $100 shipped for the two shields?
