You have reason to!

Actually, it wasn't that bad. We had a great time, about two hours out on the water this morning. It started snowing like crazy, I don't think the neighbors completely understood our reasoning:cool:


The season has to get started sometime, and today was it for us. Summer has officially begun in Missouri (even though it is snowing).

Wow you are right. I saw the title and I was about to raise my B.S. flag on you calling me a sissy. You are a baller, and I promise I won't gripe about 60 degree water anymore! :D

Actually, that was my buddy Ryan on the ski in the picture.

Regarding the balls.....after we got out of the water I doubt anything in that region could be seen with the naked eye:eek3:

Was there any ice floating around ? That would add to the challenge.

What kind of dry suit do you have and how well does it work?

Why would Ric be a sissy? Has he been crying about the cold again?

No ice by the way. It actually warmed up last week while I was at work, but we have been out when there is ice and its not an ideal situation.

We both had Kokatat drysuits on. They are for kayaking, but work very well for just about all situation. Not cheap, but they are gortex and have relief zippers so you can keep them on the whole day yet still lubricate with hot cider and Captain Morgan or budlight. I can wear as much insulation under it as I want, I was never even slightly cold all day other than my face and ears. A drysuit is a must. If you can stretch your season out by an extra month or two its a no brainer.

Its funny. The night before Ryan came over and after a few drinks (or maybe more than a few) we said we should ski in the morning. We wake up, and its snowing. We both said screw it, I planned on playing Xbox all day with my kids, but then we both changed our mind and said lets go.

The last minute things are always the best, and I wish I had a nickel for every time my wife said I was a moron.

Looks like fun. We are going out today- my buddy has an old Epic I haven't been behind yet and mine isn't de winterized yet. Should be maybe 60 here- a record heatwave.

Yeah, I had a rough one here in Florida yesterday as well. I mean the water temp was 73 and the air was 64. I was a little cold and almost had to put on a shorty for the 3 sets I skiied. ;)
