    Default First Ride of the season

    Well today it got close to 80 here in Washington so i finally got the nerve to get in the ice water and try it only rode 2 sets and was freezing by the time I was done it definately was nice to get back out on the water though. ive been chomping at the bit to get out there the wife wasnt too keen on the the idea so maybe next time. Anyone else out there from the tacoma area?

    Where do you ride in Tacoma? I'm on s.e. side of the state but have some friends that live up by you and we're looking at doing a meet half way thing. Don't worry, it only gets warmer the more you get in.

    Last Sunday was my first time skiing this season. At 8:30am the air temp was 38 and the water temp was 45. The water was nice and flat though. I didn't last long as my face hurt and hands started to cramp. It was still nice to get my swerve on.

    No Butta, I'm just to dumb to pass up a chance to get behind my boat. Winter is a long time to be off of the lake. Sometimes you just have to say 'Hit It!'

    Default riding tacoma

    I live in eatonville which is about a half hour from mt rainier so I usually hit up alder lake which is a pretty good sized lake as well as mayfield lake (which is closer to I-5)or clear lake. In july a bunch of us are heading over to banks which will be cool. Tried to get all my friends to chip in on a house boat over at rosevelt but their too cheap so banks it is.
