    this just makes me glad that we boat 2 hours from the house. most of the local idiots hit up lake houston or lake conroe, only the people who know what they are doing take the time to go to trinity

    Default Boat Ramp Crazyness!

    I pass the free launch to go to the one that costs $6. The free one has all kinds of crazy and long waits every weekend. You would be amazed at how much 6 bucks keeps the idiots away! 😀

    Like the gas stations that can save a few pennies to the gallon.

    Same here. Get the season pass every year and launch at hwy 50. A 30 minute wait is not uncommon at the upper Barton creek free ramp. It takes us another 10 minutes to get there but I hate waiting. Do you launch at hwy 50 or rolling view in Durham?

    It sounds like you guys are going to Barton's at the wrong times. I hardly ever wait more than 5 minutes, but I try to stay away from the hours of say noonish and 5ish. I was also wondering why I never see any other Moombas. I guess if you guys put in up there, you stay north of 98. I usually stay south of 98.

    I used to put in at Hwy 50 ramp when I first got my boat and I was a newbie. We don't use it anymore since we often stay out until dark and I think that ramp closes around sunset, Barton's is 24 hour.

    Boat launches create waaaay to much humor! I used to get just livid with anger at the IDIOTS! Even my wife gets angry! However now I have learned to just laugh! I have often offered to help people as well.

    As someone stated earlier - I can just take a coller full of beer, my lawn chair, and tube of sunscreen to the boat launch for a day of comedy!!!!!

    I went to Barton's creek today because a buddy and his wife launched there and it's a long boat ride to meet up from hwy 50. Was either of you in the red and white möbius LS?

    I pray someday I can have your attitude!

    Seriously though, I have backed in other people's boats, help load other's boats, moved boats around the pier...literally anything to help things move quicker at the landing.

    Today we launched at 1030...no problem..might just be what we need to do for now on.
