Is This The Last Ride of the Year?
« on: October 25, 2023, 08:46:33 PM »
Today we had temps in the 70's so Betty and I took the boat out for what may be the last ride of the season. Motored up the Seneca river, took a break at Baldwinsville Lock24 than headed home. Saw a pair of Eagles keeping an eye on use as we went by. Looks like a frost may be coming early next week so winterizing is on the schedule this weekend.
Looking forward to next year on the river and meeting up with y'all at Rathbun or Red Wing.

Sounds like a nice ride on a fall day.   Heard you retired, congratulations to you on that as well.   Hope to see at either MN or IA meets next year!

It was nice indeed. Hard to resist a 70 degree day with a boat.

Betty had such a good time at Rathbun that she wants to go back next year.......to both meets. See you there.
 P.S. You heard right, as of 2 weeks ago I'm retired.  For now.
