Yeah, I had hoped to get mine out one more time, but I just don't think its going to happen. Lows in the upper 20's for the next few nights, and barely squeaking into the 50's for highs. In fact, I am probably going to go drain the block tonight, just to make sure no damage occurs. Its in a storage unit, and I don't think it would get cold enough long enough to freeze the block, but I will sleep much better after draining. Probably winterize then in the next week or 2. Giving up is a sad thing.

Here is compilation of the morning fun. Shortest video I can get...

YouTube messed with my video because of my choice of music. I will post later..
Ok, Take Two. Music has been updated but if you don't like it, turn it down. I do it for my enjoyment. I was doing a Star Wars music theme with the beginning but YouTube shut me down...

Once again, October 12th, lower 50's, water temp was a bit under 60 degrees.

Beautiful boat! We ski Jordan lake pretty regularly. Seems to be a few of us on here these days! I hope to ski next week if it gets any warmer. 30* on Friday night! Have to get heat lamps in my engine bay.

Sunday morning in Iowa, 43 degrees air temp. The water was a balmy 50.3 degrees, just enough for the hands to go numb after about 5 turns.



My friend Jay footin on the chilly water

50* water? Wow, you guys are way more hardcore than me. I'm just hoping to get a day of turns in on my new ski next week before the water gets lower than 70!

Where did you guys ski at? I was hoping to get a last run in on Rathbun last week or this week, but days just didn't quite get warm enough. Now water well under 60* and thats about where I draw the line.
