Enjoying the last warm day Well the 2020 lake season is officially over. Fall is barreling upon us. It's time to wax your skis and get those snow shoes ready. Need to make sure my iceboat is ready to run this year. But before we put away the swim suits, we hit the lake on the last 80+ degree weather day! We had a good 2020 So despite everything that 2020 brought us, we made the best of it. Got our diets on track, worked out a lot and enjoyed the outdoors. Took out our boat more often then we would ever dream and enjoyed our time at the lake. Didn't do as much fishing as I would have liked,…

As the cooler weather descends upon us, the time at the lake is dwindling down to a halt. I would love to get a few more good outings this fall with fishing and just enjoying being on the water as opposed go going in. Of course there was a great end of the season sale on the Yamaha RS300 - so I snagged one and it just showed up yesterday. I mean... How cool does that look? Good for 100 feet and 3 mph. I haven't actually used it yet so don't rush out and buy one just yet, but figured worst case it would be something fun for the kids to use and play with around the boat and…

Posting some photos from around the lake this past weekend. Not much to really write about - no adventures per se while out on the water, but definitely enjoying all that life has to offer right now.

Took the Scarab out for a day on the lake and tossed out the two anchors at our favorite spot. Relaxing on the lake Since we have a jet boat (no propeller) we can go into two or three feet of water without worrying about hitting a rock. The boat drafts next to nothing. Honestly we are ecstatic with our Scarab 215. Purchased it new and don't regret getting it one bit. Only 30 hours on the boat this year so far, but for what I have under my belt, I would recommend this boat to anyone and everyone. We drop the main anchor and then toss out my four pronged "rock anchor" - honestly not sure what else to…

Looking through my media on this blog, I noticed I had a lot of uploaded photos for posts that just didn't happen. Today's flashback will be to the day the Mrs and I took a Friday off and headed out on the boat, throw out the anchor on a nice quiet spot and enjoy the smooth water before any of the weekend tourists showed up. Wine, water, and women! FloatingWineCheers! Love this shot Looking forward to more time on the water this year with the new boat!

Spent some time up at the lake, fishing, swimming and watching sunsets. Not to get all mushy, but watching the sunsets was actually a very relaxing and enjoyable event. Even during the height of the July weekends (tourist time) the lake was quite empty when the sun was going down. We would make our way out into the "broads" (the middle of the lake), cut the motor and just let the wind catch the boat broad-side and we would gently drift. Only because the wind caught us I knew we were drifting, but otherwise, no discernable movement was noticed. Even when jumping off the boat in 100+ feet of water, the force of your feet pushing against the boat would…

Who knew this was a thing?!  Most ski mountains have turned into year round resorts, and Gunstock is no exception.  They have a giant zip line course, a smaller adventure zip line and obstacle course, segway tours, mountain top yoga, mountain biking trails, hiking trails, a pond with paddle boards and other items, even a mountain coaster.  Simply put, it's a fun place to be anytime of year. The zip line is amazing and I had done it in the past.  That morning while the wife was doing the mountain top yoga, she found out they were holding a moon-lit nighttime zip line run.  Limited to one group of 20 people. We got the last spots. It wasn't just a…
