So I am getting ready to do back to back trips on the independence. First trip will be a 10 day fishing adventure leaving next Friday October 22nd and returning November 1st. Then my 11 day will depart November 1st. And return November 12th. Lots of crew treats for both trips. And lots of soda pop. The crew loves the treats and sodas and I also tossed in Gatorade for those hot days. I have done back to back trips before but it’s been about 10 years. I have the gals lined up in case I need my laundry done but after packing and putting labels on all my bags I think I will have enough clothes for the trips but it’s always good to have a backup plan so I have the gals that do the washing for the independence just in case. It will be great fishing with old friends and getting to meet some new anglers on these trips. I started making a list and checking it twice. If there is something I forgot I must not need it that bad. The most important things for me to make sure I have is my passport and my meds. Those are always in my backpack. So I can’t wait to get out of town and departing the docks heading southbound.
