    Default Cold Ride in Mississippi today

    It has been about 75 all week and I could not take it any longer... I picked up the boat from storage, Charged the battery, hooked up the flush pro and ran it for a few minutes, waxed her up and took her out today.

    After riding up the river for a while, I saw a group of young kids on a sandbar swimming... I said, if they can swim, I can wakeboard... on came the wetsuit and ran a few sessions. I forgot about some of those muscles you only use while wakeboarding!! I tried to be conservative to keep from falling.... that did not work... still a little rusty....

    Anyway...March 10, 2007, officially kicked off spring!

    Hope everyone is good and ready to ride!

    Anyone else (Not in Florida) Riding yet?

    I plan on hitting the cable lake at TSR this weekend and I'll probably take the boat out next weekend. I'm in Austin TX and the weather here has been about the same.

    Alright, that's it.......I'm gonna give it a shot tomorrow in Georgia. It hasn't been quite that warm here yet, but today was awful sunny and nice. I'll let you know how it goes here.

    Just took mine in for the 100 hr. service and some other non mechanical issues. If I get it back, it is 70 this weekend, and I can find a driver, I'm goning to wakeboard..... after you quit hyperventilating, everything is good. I have a spring suit, when the kids get older, I might break down and buy a dry suit.

    I have a shorty 3/2 Wetsuit and a Full 3/2 Wetsuit... I am sure I would have difficulty finding a crew if I got a dry suit... plus... deer hunting occupies the coldest part of winter... plus work....

    Good luck getting your boat out of the shop and riding.. I too hope to ride again Saturday..

    Went out last weekend for a while. Beautiful day tricked me into getting in the water with a half wet suit. Actually wasn't too bad, but only made two runs each.

    It's supposed to be in the upper 70s here in Georgia this weekend, so I think we will be out there again.
