I live in the Quad Cities (Bettendorf, Iowa), ski on the Mississippi River, and travel I-88 frequently and always wonder if the MC owner on the lake (i.e. ditch) north of I-88 at mile marker 73 3/4 is on Team Talk. Looks like a very nice place to ski and ride but a short run! It's always nice to survey your toys and ski area when I drive by, so just thought I shout out here just in case you are on this forum.

Not sure if he's on here or not, but he just purchased our jump this spring. Very nice guy and also owns a Nautique. We are also on I-88 at MM 36 exit...stop by if you see a Malibu out there, though the slalom course really isn't visible from the interstate.

I have seen your course. Looks nice too! I've also been noticing the highway patrol often has a speed trap under the Moline Road bridge over I-88.

That is the lake we ski on...I think you meant Moline Road, but it runs directly to the town of Lyndon. Who is your sister?
