Fair question. I'm just curious if people do; and if so, what's a fair amount. I usually just give him a 5 spot after he motors me down the hill and gets me setup with a boat.

I guess I am cheap. I usually give him $3 after he brings me back up the mountain.

I rarely sign the sheet and pay for the boat up at the house. Instead I just throw him a $20 at the dock and let him decide what to do with it.

I have only heard him called "John" or "Uncle John" by everyone besides WCF guys.
His name is John

We called him Stosh b/c we did not know his name.....so he got nick named Stosh... :lol:

But it's John or Uncle John

So no one knows for sure! Some people call him John, some call him Uncle, some call him Stosh. He is a man of little words and mystery!

I'm telling you..the very first time I went to deep I paid Jack in his little office and signed off on a boat. He said, "here's a ticket. Go give this to STOSH and he will get you setup with a boat."

Jack had no idea I was from WCF. Jack didn't say, "Give this ticket to your uncle" or "Give this to John." He said Stosh.

Anyone know what Stoch/Stosh means? Does it even have a meaning? Just wondering how that all came about.

'Stosh' is a nickname to Polish name Stanislaw (Stanley)
Usually Polish-American Stanley is called Stosh :roll:
