When I was a kid, my Dad would prep for a big trip months in advance.  In the basement of our house, he would stretch out a blue tarp next to all the decoy boxes and begin his preparation by laying out gear.  It drove my Mom bat shit crazy, but, in his defense, he was never ill- prepared.   Most acorns never fall too far from their tree.

Luckily for me, Molly is on hiatus from West Yellowstone, other wise, this would not go over so well.
