Hello everyone, My wife Laura and I are the proud new owners of a 1958 Shasta Airflyte, we just picked her up last weekend from a wonderful woman in Upstate NY. After a 5 hour back road drive home, the LauraJean (wife born the same year so seemed appropriate) is all snugged away in large enclosed, heated building so I can work on her. Starting tomorrow, the journey begins. I am sure that I will be seeking your input and guidance as this proceeds. Our plan is to get her as close to original but better, and the LauraJean will be used for weekend fly fishing trips and camping throughout New England as we learn of good spots that are must go too for us. We live in Western Mass, our three daughters all grown up. So it my wife and our bulldog Tuukka. I've heard a lot about this site and how nice everyone is. I look forward to chatting and hopefully meeting some of you. Wish me luck. She's actually
Welcome Cliff & Laura! I'm sure you'll have a wonderful journey with LauraJean. I was born in Upstate NY, I have relatives in MA, I have a '60 Airflyte, and I have a pooch named Tuukka (Go B's next year). So I feel a connection to your story already. Can't wait to follow along.
