    well my dear wife Linda got stuck into the project yesterday and frankly I am blown away .

    here is the evidence of what will be the icing on the cake.

    We taking a week off in August going camping and fishing in Northern Ontario at what is supposed to be a good trout area.
    Cake will be riding along as a surprise on his birthday.

    I think he is going to be blown away like me.
    cheers
