AWESOME weekend

Recommended Posts

Started off the weekend faking sick on Saturday so I could skip work and hit the lake with my Dad and brothers and sister. Haven't seen my Dad in a while and this is when we see him for xmas so I saw it fit to be "sick". Well as a huge surprise, he got my brother and I a SWEET '92 nitro. We got to the lake and it was just parked in our lot. We really couldn't believe it. He's definetly the greatest, quite a few guys on here knows he trailers us to all of our tournaments and anytime we fish because of the situation we're in. I was so psyched when I saw it. The boat is in amazing condition, always garaged and the carpet and gelcoat are basically perfect. To top the weekend off we had a tournament today and I love fishing tournaments. We did alright for how terrible of a day it was. This morning a huge cold front came in and it was pouring rain and 38 degrees. My hands have never been so cold in my life!!!!! We ended up the day with only 2 fish for 4.78 lbs, but 3rd place. No money, there were only 10 boats. Fun time though, and amazing boat. GPS'd it at 41.9 mph...It flies!!! :) My favorite colors too, black and blue. I'll get some pictures up when I get home.

Thanks man. It really is.

Another funny story about it was I almost bought it out under him. I saw it on craigslist about a month ago and I asked the guy selling it if he would take payments of $250 a month til I could pay it off and at the same time my Dad was about to buy it ;D The guy was like, "Do you have a son named Matt? He's trying to buy the boat too :D" It makes me feel alot better that he didn't spend some crazy amount on a boat and found this one for just under 2800.  :)

Yeah I love my carrot stix. My girlfriend got me a gold, and it's amazing. She didn't let me take it to the lake though, such a tease.

Last year I had a really nice toyota tundra that my stepdad bought for my use(we have 4-5 cars at a time) so it was all I was allowed to drive. It wasn't "MINE" as in once I leave I can take it, but it was mine in the sense I was the only one that drove it and we refered to it as mine. I came across a nice boat last year and almost bought it but I didn't because I told my Mom I was going to get it and she said yeah yeah it's okay and a week later she sold the truck. So I didn't buy the boat and now I drive a scion tC, not complaining because I would drive any car she just does alot of things like that. She puts alot of speed bumps in my road to just go fishing...weak.
