    Lost Kilt becomes a Found Kilt.....Olde Olde Olde....

    I guess it's good. At my aging age suppose I could hide Easter eggs from myself...

    So last year, a few weeks before my last Grand Canyon rafting trip I decided I needed a USA Kilt's Casual to take along. Due to my late decision had to be off the rack. So I ordered a Celtic Nations tartan casual.

    When it arrived I found I'd been overly optimistic about my waist measurement and I hadn't lost as much weight as I thought I had. Too small.

    But I had a way to get the correct waist size now. Called USA Kilts and found a Firefighter's Memorial casual off the rack. It fit and wore it down canyon.

    Meantime I'd put the too small Celtic Nations in the kilt closet and literally forgot about it.

    This week I was in the kilt closet and saw it and thought, "What??" A found kilt for sure.

    Gonna sew on a couple Velcro patches so it'll fit now. But hey, how cool is it to find a new kilt?

    Pretty cool, especially when it's your own. (Better than finding someone else's I suppose)

    "... a boat hook in Arizona?" sez the old sailor.
    Those ancient U Nialls from Donegal were a randy bunch.

    Good eye lad, good eye.

    'tis a boat hook for sure and in Arizona for sure. Standard equipment on the rafts going down the Grand Canyon. Headed back down for my 5th trip this summer. Can't wait.

    They also be used a lot on the reservoir here called Lake Powell.

    One past trip down canyon the raft boat hook became my "cane" after I twisted my ankle on a slick submerged rock on a side canyon hike. Hence my affinity for the device.
