Me and a couple guys have been trying to ride every friday from 9am till the kids get out of school. Tomorrow we there is only 2 of us until 11. A third would be awesome any friday but we could sure use one tomorrow.

We have wetsuits, drysuits, boats and lots of boards just bring yourself!

Oh sure, make a public announcement here but you mention anything to your partner in crime just across town??

"Hey dude, we're leaving in 2 minutes, you wanna go? Gotta work huh. That sucks..." Now that's early notice for planning ahead. :p

I'd be tempted to sneak out on my lunch break and join you as I work about 7min from that launch but it's looking to be a whopping 56 degrees today.

Newty, How long are you going to do this for? I want to not work on Fridays and will be spending them up in Portland so I would be down to be a third wheel.

Yea i do work Fridays lol Al has asked me a few times to go out on Fridays when he has time off but thats the nature of the beast. I always work Wed Thurs Friday right now as im on nights for training. When i go back to days its always Thurs Fri Sat lol. Its all good was only teasing you a bit LOL.

You know Ryan we never got to meet up this summer, its a shame, lets not let that happen next year ok.

Berg still hopping to meet you on the water as well LOL.

Damn that would be nice if I could get out every week. I'd definitely be up for it If I was close. When it gets cooler the wife and kids don't enjoy it and I'm still up for some time with no one else on the water.
It's hard to get anybody to go this time of year. Last year I took a day off middle week all through september and had a hard time finding enough people to go most weeks but made it happen. This year it was like pulling teeth and couldn't get anybody to commit. Whats up with that? Bunch of pansies! Guess their not addicted as much as I

You too Mike. I actually went hunting for you at LBC over Labor day weekend. On Sunday - that end of the lake was pretty gray and dark from all the wild fire smoke and we ended up getting into an ash shower on so got the hell outta there. A bit dangerous but humorous none-the-less, pulling my brother in law and older kids doing about 35 on the 3-person tube. No wake, waves or other boats for quite a ways... Faces got all peppered with ash.

Newty got lucky Friday - I drove over the bridge around 1pm and it was smooth water - and no rain. Not real warm, but everything else was lookin' good.

Nice Berg, we kept an eye out and yea we go in the same Ash shower, we actualyl pulled the boat off the lake a few hours and covered her up, everying was bailing of the lake. Then we releaunced for some surfing later in the day.

Next time we will have to call each other or set a time location. Stretch was out with us with his boat but Sunday he went to the Cascades area all day. Said the water was glass.

lets see some wake/surf pics of this sac'd out beast which you speak of whose name we do not speak of

Those of us chained to a desk on Fridays need a distraction every now and then to survive the dreaded afternoon stretch
