A banner day in the Melia household yesterday...my mom & sister threw Brooke the most amazing baby shower, and then the mailman delivered the single best piece of mail I've ever received - passing results on the Massachusetts Bar Exam...being sworn in to the Mass. Bar at the end of June, right around the time Brooke is due with our first child...things are certainly falling into place!
Make sure to stroll over to the Links page (bottom of sidebar to your left) and check out the many cool sites I have linked to...some you have heard of, others you have not, but each site is awesome in its own unique way. Thanks!
To bring everyone up to date on everything, I recently purchased some new hiking boots, namely the Salomon Quest 4D GTX that can be seen on my Gear page. I've tried many a boot since I declared my original Keen Targhee Mids not fit for action, and this one has proven to be the most comfortable, stable, and supportive boot of the three I tried. I can't speak to their durability or long-lasting comfort, but that update will come as I put some miles on these bad boys.
Also, next week I'll be going on a fishing trip with my father-in-law Phil and two brothers-in-law, Marc and Ben to Punta Gorda, FL. Phil recently purchased a vacation spot down there, so instead of working the outer coast of Cape Cod for our Man Trip this year, we'll be flats fishing in Charlotte Harbor for two days. Pictures and a trip report will be posted shortly after coming home.
Hey folks...I don't know why it took me this long to figure out how to add this feature, but I just stumbled across it while messing around in the site management section...anywho, this will be the place were I update the world on a new piece of gear purchased, a trip just taken (with appropriate linkage, of course), and any other mundane nonsense I feel that you (how many of "you" are there, anyway?) need to know. Enjoy the rest of your day!
I'm just a guy who loves to hike, fish, hunt, camp, and snowmobile, preferably with my wife Brooke and our three kids, Hunter, Max & Shea. I play the part of a lawyer during the week and try to get outside and get dirty on the weekends.
