RIP Joe. Ill always remember the fun times we had together in the great north. We couldn't wait to finish Thanksgiving dinners so we could hit the road north even in a snowstorm. I think one of the funniest memories was when the flock of turkeys invaded our archery practice behind the house in LON. We shot every arrow we had and didn't hit a single bird! You were a lot of fun and I'll always consider you a brother.
