The fall here was while barefooting. The photo is a screen shot taken with a GoPro mounted on the handle. The photo shows the split second before impact. Shoulders are out of whack and my wife says I look a little "twisted". Chiropractor on Monday. I posted both the runs I took (including the one with this fall) in the barefootin photos thread after this one.

Burner-
I love my clinchers! They allow me to ski longer (2 laps of my lake instead of 1) and pull harder. Yeah, there is the issue discussed, but it seems a fair trade off at this point yet. I'll own a pair for as long as I can ski!

Again, nothing picture worthy, but I did make it out late morning. Air and water both about 47 degrees. But with the sun and relatively light wind, it was plenty comfortable. Skied until exhausted and never really did get cold. Strada bindings (or any closed toe system) are very nice for cold water.

However, I decided to fully winterize instead of just drain, and I pulled my rails out of the water so I guess I'm done.

I'm actually a little disappointed in myself for winterizing and yanking the rails out of the water. I had fully planned to simply drain the manifolds/block/heater and hope for another time or two before it froze over. I was a little bummed that nobody wanted to ski today (at least I had a driver) and I think more than anything that put me in the mood to "pull the plug" on the season.

Diehards and opportunity are hard to find this year.. Ottawa is about half way between Rock Falls and Plainfield...maybe we can set up a die hard ski day late next season.

We winterized and put the boat into storage today.
Of course the best way to warm the oil for an oil change is to drag around skiers/boarders. Four of us got out for short runs. Feet do get cold in a hurry in 42 degree water. Here's my oldest son...
