I have had it!

We are sick and tired of this weather we have had all summer. I think that we have had only a few days in the 90's and it's either windy, rainy, or cool. It's in the 60's today!
That's it, we want to take the boat somewhere nice that is HOT and not more than 400 miles (SOUTH) away from the Chicago area hopefully in the 2nd week in August for 4-5 days.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I feel for ya!
Between all the rain, high water level, a virus that killed thousands of stinking carp, a sick kid, a sick wife, I have only had my boat in the water twice so far and I havent got to ski yet. Last year wasnt much better........

Anyway, about 400 miles due south of you is Kentucky Lake. I havent been there yet, but I have friend who have and said it is great. It is on my list ok skiing vacations I hope to do.

Thnx Den,
That's a possibility. I have family in Southern IL and my uncle had a place on KY Lake when I was a kid.
I don't think that I want to make this vacation an Einstein vacation though. (relative).

Lake Cumberland, KY.

Not sure about the exact distance and it may exceed your 400 mi. limit, but... it's well worth it! As a matter of fact, if you make the trip, you may never go back home. I travel 320 mi each way, every weekend year 'round to spend as much time on this lake as humanly possible. Seriously, no bull.

You got my attention. Any more details like resorts, websites, and such?
OBTW, you get that Tristar home yet?

KY Lake has a lot of water, and there are a lot of little side areas where you can ski or do whatever you want. KenLake Marina is one place where you can rent a slip, camp or rent a trailer or even a motel room nearby. They have laundry, showers, food, bait, gas, etc. It's not far from Purchase Parkway. If you decide to go exploring in the area, there is a lot around and Paducah is only about 30 miles away.

I don't believe that I have seen it. I just remember home of Superman on the watertower. It has been a long time since I visited Metropolis.

Not sure how far it is for you, but we do Tablerock Lake every year. It's right outside of Branson, Mo. By far the best lake in the Midwest we have ever boated; clean, big and you don't encounter the traffic that Lake of the Ozarks gets. JimT
