Will be in Vegas from Oct. 16 to Oct. 20. Is anyone in the area willing to provide a wake pull? Can provide gas money etc.? Please let me know. Thanks!

I've never been up to Mead personally but I heard the water conditions are garb. The winds pick up and chop the water. I've been on Mohave which is right below and even that place gets bad with the wind. No harm in trying, good luck.

Look me up when you get here I'm sure I can get you out on the water. Send me a PM a week or so before. Mornings are best but looks like you will be here mid week so that a plus. Oct. is usually pretty calm for the most part and not to many boats.

October is probably one of the best times of the year for Mead - warm water, warm days, cool nights and very few boats! We go down almost every October and often have glass for several days in a row.

These were from an October day at Mead near Echo Bay. We skied our a$$es off.

Would love to meet/hang out with some fellow MC people if you need an observer. Rather not embarrass myself by trying any watersports! I live in LV about 25 minutes from Calville Bay launch. I have an 84 S & S but it's a bit soon in its game to offer it up as a tow lol, since I haven't actually driven it myself yet! And you were asking for a wake pull anyways, which this won't do. Bought it damaged, fixed it, but haven't tested it yet. Intend to do that next weekend (Oct 5-7). It looks pretty sweet (like it's been pampered) so it'll probably run fine but you never know till you try!

Well I'll offer one if I think the boat will work lol. I'll know before then. I have a couple slalom skis that the seller gave me with the boat. I have no idea if they're workable, but they appear to be. I also have a couple tow ropes. What else would you need besides a boat, tow rope, ski and three people?

Strad let me know when you are going to take yours out I'll try and hook up with you.

mtajpa- Sounds like great weather to me... hopefully you're okay with a boarder in the boat ...I'll PM you this weekend. If this is for sure I'm happy to fly with my board, rope and vest:)

^^ definitely mtajpa. Somebody needs to teach me how to drive! I've only pulled somebody one time and it wasn't a skier. I'm going to try and go out next friday afternoon. I've got my father in law helping me, and our aim is to adjust the packing gland, check for any other leaks from now-unknown locations, and check to see if there are any other operating anomalies.

I should have read this earlier - just got back....

Highly recommend the new Buffett at Caesars. I figured ski season is about over, may as well pack on ten pounds in one night....

Mike, this sounds good. Will PM you as well by the end of the weekend. Sounds like a blast and the 80 degree weather is better than the 60s we've been having:headbang:

Looks like an EXCELLENT forecast compared to the 30 degree weather I woke up to this morning!! mtajpa I will call you tonight to sort out the details.

Do let me know what the details are if you need a third (or fourth :D). I can't go anywhere until 4 (get me to the lake by 440) on weekdays. Weekends are wide open. Love to come along if it works out.

PS the S & S is actually working quite well, amazingly enough. Had it out twice now. No problems. Runs almost as good as it looks!
