Damn Rob, we pretty much grew up the same. By the time I was 14 I had built my first airboat and was out pretty much every night gator hunting, frogging, fire hunting or just plain getting drunk. Growing up in the Everglades during the 80's we had a lot of good times and a lot of running from the local, state and federal lawmen (just do a search for the 80's and everglades). Fun times, scary times, almost doing time. I ended up in my teens 16-17 starting to commercial fish for big bucks. Made an average of 1500-1800 a week. Too bad it isn't like that anymore. Effin feds screwed everything up with their new "conservation" laws.Originally posted by rob10
Hunted gator in the swamps and marshes. Still do when I get a chance. Chased and caught a lot of good lookin hot cajun girls. Blew up a few engines and trans doing over a 100 on the backroads down here, ZZ Top, Waylon Jennings, and the Hackberry Playboys were always on the radio. Life was good and sstill is dspite the ocassional hurricane. We are a tough damned group of people down here.
