I received a list of last year's winners per my request. The winner of the MC in '04 was some guy in California (not John B).

Unfortunately for him, he had been on disability and having financial problems (according to what TV tells me). I assume the house has sold at this point.

can you imagine taxes & insurance on a place like that with an average income?

Nice but NOT do-able

was it listed for sale at some point that you know of?

I don't know that it was listed, but had heard that there were several prospective buyers were it to be listed. I can't imagine that the guy was able to hang onto it for too long.

I'd have sold it and put the money toward building my own private lake.

My aspirations aren't that high. You guys can have most of the world. Doesn't look like something I'd want to fool with upkeepwise. 2/3 of it is salt water. Not good for the boat. The rest of it is too croweded. I just need a few acres of dry land and 2,200x250 of the wet stuff and I'll be happy.

Sir you've obviously given this some thought. You need that boat back!

Just a little bit of thought. I do need the boat back. How's that 04 treating you?

Ric

How much would it cost to do that?

The land would run approx. $350K around here (but maybe less).
The lake would probably cost another $500K at least.
Dock/Boat House $20K.

The look on my face during the first set realizing that I wouldn't have to share ... priceless.

What are the two sports there biathlete, in texas, one has to involve guns, just can't figure out if the other involves trucks, drinking, toobing, or skiing! Maybe they both involve guns :eek:

Not being a parent yourself, Iím sure you donít realize the importance of offering a ride of any kind to the youngest ones in order to foster the love for water sports that it deserves.

My father in law is the proud owner of one of the few remaining, functioning, original zip sleds. The kids simply can't get enough of it in our experience. It accomplishes the aforementioned goal and provides a natural transition to water sports involving a stick/board and a handle.

My 7 yr old niece didn't want to get off the thing, couldn't stop talking about it all the way home and, ultimately, wrote a paper on it for her second grade class. My 3 year old niece thinks it's pretty amazing, too. And stood up on it after about 15 minutes. The pictures are priceless.

Wish they still made them. It's what I learned on, too.
