Goals/Gameplan for 2013

135149571435cxJLHere we go again. It’s a new year and it’s time to post up my list of goals to do this year. These aren’t resolutions because resolutions never last. I will probably break a resolution by the time I am done typing this post. This is also not meant to boast because I think I am far off from others on being able to boast. I am just throwing these items out there into the blogosphere to create some sort of accountability that I need to accomplish more than half of the items below. I feel better about myself when I can physically see items being crossed off of my list. Sure, I can easily keep all my goals in my head but it is not the same.

Every morning I stood in the water before sunrise and heard the salmon running up towards me. Sometimes 4 or 5 fish at a time. I had a few run into me and through my legs. Where we fished was insane.
