Amber has a bunch. She will post them after she gets home from work. Of course our on the water shots are limited since the drive coupler in phoenix decided to burn up on Friday afternoon.

Yep third time towed within a year, but that is what you get for using a used coupler on a fresh engine. Sad thing was I wasn't even abusing it just crusing back to the launch.:-(  oh well, she will be fixed by the end of the weekend Buzz's in kearney has the parts and I will pick them up Saturday.

Pictures should be fixed.

We had absolutely perfect water Thursday & Friday.  Little wind, no boats Thursday and most of Friday.  Saturday was very windy, so a couple of us went over to the resort to the water park.

Boat issues...mine isn't running right, Mike H's CVZ is gonna be a screamer when he gets it dialed in...Brandon blew his drive coupler...Erik's CV-23 is running great with the new motor.  Joe P's boat is ready to rumble...Joe 'Deuceman's boat was perfect as usual.

All in all a good weekend...thankfully the cicada's quieted down and night...how cow!!!

What else...um...they broke a water main, so our bathrooms were completely closed...had to go over by Barb's cabin to use a bathroom, shower, etc.

There was some discussion about moving it North or West next year...possibly Emmetsburg, Five Island Lake...or to Lake Icaria, Adams, IA...out west.

We'll see.  Emmetsburg has quite a bit to offer, Casino, Freshwater lake, camprounds, hotels, etc, and a couple hours from the TC's. 

If folks are interested, I'll run up and take a look some day this Fall.  Supposed to be a nice area.

Agreeded! I could have swore I heard them darn things once we got across the Missouri yesterday. BTW the river looked prime for a run where we crossed at Blair, ne. There were two boats playing under the bridge when we crossed.

Doran, I'm going to steal and post that rainbow cloud picture.  Courtney wants a copy.

Glad to hear everyone had fun.  I enjoyed my ride in Travis's 160.  What a smooth little cruiser.  I want one.

It was a good weekend in all, great to see everyone that came, sorry to have missed those who could not attend.  Thursday and Friday were fantastic boating days; Saturday was windy and reserved to coves.  Friday lunch at the resort was a big hit in my book, beautiful weather, great food and kind people.   We tried the 16SS out on the open "sea" on Saturday, but when waves came crashing over the bow, it was time to head into the cove by the resort.   The Z has some items to work out, Saturday during the wind, we were able to keep it on the trailer and get her running and idling nicely, but when we began to set the shift linkage, the drive grumbled like a diesel engine running.   We believe the engine alignment is at fault, but will investigate this week.  We thankfully avoided storms, but did get enough rain on Sunday morning to get all the gear wet, forcing a re-set up of the tent at home to dry out.    My thanks to Dan and family for providing a fantastic meal Saturday afternoon, the brisket was excellent.   We all tried our best to hold down everything in the wind, could have used some extra arms in those conditions.  My apologies to Joe, I was scooping some baked beans and the wind gave him a shower from the spoon drippings.   Thanks again to everyone for providing the photos,  I was not able to take as many as I would have liked, busy just trying to keep two boats running.
