Daniel,

I guess it could be tentative. Allow 4 days for shipping and see what it looks like. A lot of these potential hosts have only 1 post. They may not be here 2-3 months from now, when their turn comes up. The calendar may have to be edited several times.
I have some order changes for the current list, then we could try your calendar.

Bob

Bob, thank you for managing this fun project.
I really don't want to complicate things. Perhaps it may be best to keep it all here, seems to have worked well so far. Just let me know if it gets too complicated to manage.

Daniel, the map and calendar look great! Nice to see a resurgence in Vagabox. I look forward to reading about his travels. Having a page to access the continuing tale will be nice. I'm willing to help however necessary, although once Vagabox is on the move, things seem to work themselves out.

Daniel, I prefer to just be a part of the organic structure of it.

If they adopt your suggestion, I'm cool with that too.

Thanks guys.

I'm in.

Robert is doing a great job managing the schedule for our busy itinerant. We'll just keep it going with this system. It's working well.
Thanks Robert for managing that.

Took Vagabox out tonight to the local park for about an hour at dusk.
No big fish in this pond, but lots of bluegill and dink bass, so figured if anything, we wouldn't come up empty handed.

Image

Got dark pretty quickly, and the mosquitoes come out in full force once the sun goes down.
They are more like birds than bugs. Not a good scene.

I basically fished a fly until it either...
1) Caught a Fish
2) Was lost, or...
3) Wore out it's welcome, or in other words was not getting any love from the fish.

Luckily, none were lost tonight.

Image
This fly was the first. It got bumped a lot, but no hookups...

Image
Okay, on to #2. Hookup, but could the fish be smaller?

Image
#3...a little bigger on this bushy kebari. I think if I kept fishing,
this would have been the best producer of the night


Image
#4...actually caught 2 bass on this one,
but the first one came unbuttoned while hand-lining in


Between weather & work, I've had Vagabox for a week and a half and hadn't fished it until now.
Plan on changing that the rest of this weekend...weather looks to be mostly dry, although HOT and HUMID...before sending it on its way come Monday.

Glad you finally got out, Mike. My fishing was similar.
The crappie I caught was about 6."
