It's dry as hell, full of ****'s and liberals. Damn tree huggers... Pretty place, I'd look for something in George Town personally.

I would have loved to live in Austin in the 80s and 90s... Now, not so much. The blues scene on E 6th street is good as dead, the city is over populated, the cost of living is ridiculous and for me, thereís no real draw anymore. In other words, itís totally overrated

As far as ski clubs, there are more than a few USA Waterski affiliated clubs:


Austin
Lake Austin Austin
Barefoot Club

Austin
Lake Austin Austin Ski Club
3-Event

Buda
Aquaplex Ski Lakes
3-Event

Hutto
Frameswitch Ski Lakes
University of Texas Water Ski Team
Collegiate

Martindale
San Marcos River Ranch
San Marcos River Ranch POA Inc.
3-Event

McQueeney
Lake McQueeney
Lake McQueeney Ski Bees
Show Ski

Taylor
Frameswitch Ski Lakes
Capital Area Water Ski Club
3-Event

It can get humid but nothing like Houston or my hometown of Baton Rouge. Usually dry and hot here in Central Texas.

Does Lake Travis being so far down mean that no one is boating right now? Or is the fact that the public launches are closed just make it hard to access?
There's still boating there but the only public access is to launch from the banks. The few times I've been on Travis (in other boats) the water was rather choppy so I'm sure any of us with ProStars will get beat half to death.

Well maybe just this once, ha

As far as lake travis goes, a co-worker of mine has a lake house there and his 04 x2 he tells me has not hit the water in 2 years bc of the drought, stuck on his lift with no water. Sad its just wasting away.

That's why we settled in the suburbs. Thankfully we're outside of the plastic grocery bag ban zone.
