fuel prices

How many summers/trips to the water are going to be affected by these prices. ($3.73 here)

Not sure, but $20 for two wakeboard sets or slalom sets behind my friend's boat is looking pretty good right now!

With that said, it takes me 45 mins. to get the boat to the river so if rain is in the forcast or the river is blown out the boat is staying on the trailer in the garage. This is rare, but 2 years ago I trailered to a lake 1.5 hours away and it was blown out bad, all we could do is wakesurf.
Not gonna do that again!
I was njskier on here.

"Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!

It will definitely affect other areas of our budget. However, the wife is going on maternity leave and will cut her 40min commute for 12 weeks. That will help fill up the boat (and buy dippers).

Over the years, I've noticed lake traffic decrease for what I assume is because of fuel prices. I try to take more mid week sets because the water is usually better and there is less traffic. The weekends is usually reserved for early morning runs or wake surfing & floating.

In my attempt to be green, I think I'll turn the boat off while suiting up and changing skiers.

215 miles to the lake - won't be affecting me either. High gas prices seem to keep the wallys away too - more glass for us!
