Who's getting pumped for this!?  I'm hoping to have a running boat this year.  I'm dragging it out there either way.  Trent, if you come can you bring my transom saver?

We got a late start Wednesday due to rain.  Rather difficult to get everything packed and hooked up in the rain.  Made it Rathbun circa 6pm.  Put Z in a slip, parked trailer, and set camp.  Had a nice dinner at Louie's (restaurant at the marina), their artichoke dip is fantastic, and hey, calories on vacation don't count!  Weather is chance of spotty showers, cloudy right now, but we haven't had rain since the drive over.   Had a nice breakfast and got cleaned up, time to burn some fuel.

Here is one picture of Tim's GT, quite a rocket with a good running 115.

More photos to come, but likely after we get home, since everyone is on their data plans.  We got a little moisture yesterday, but overall the water conditions were fantastic.  Few boats, perfect conditions for go fast.  Water temp is 80, air temp 71.  Cloudy and spotty showers, but no storms.

      Weather may not have been the best for the Rathbun 2018 gathering, but all in all it was a great time with plenty of boating and visiting.   We had four Glastrons at the event, Trent's CV-16, Bigelow's 1900, our CVZ, and Tims GT-150.   Everyone seemed to run great, no breakdowns.  Tim's GT probably ran better than it ever has, it literally jumps out of the water, then flattens out on plane.   A few rain drops here and there, but thankfully no storms. We took a moonlight cruise in the 1900 Saturday night and Sunday morning cruise around the lake were some of the highlights of the trip. Beach time on Saturday had a few folks stop by to admire the Glastrons, and to share their stories of owning them back in the day. We beached just off the point entrance to the main lake from the 5mph speed zone.   From here you get a slow parade of all kind of watercraft.  There was a couple that stopped by to admire our boats, he had a BBC/Alpha drive 21' go fast boat, I think it was a Thompsen?    Hospitality at the campsite/Marina was great, the convenience store is well stocked if you forgot anything.   Marina slips were nice, and easy to come and go as ya please. The marina staff recognize us and are friendly, they all said welcome back.  Oddly, we never had a campfire, but we had a good visit Friday night with everyone in attendance.  Trent from Neb City came in on Friday with his girlfriend Erin and her son Max.   They had a rough first night on their first camping outing, but I'm hoping overall their experience was good, and that they will come back for more events.   Doran stopped by to drop off some equipment, but we missed him as he needed to head back North before we came in for lunch.  I wish I had a few more pictures to share, but its easy to get caught up enjoying the company and not taking pictures.   Didn't hear back from Trent, but Tim, Joe/Laurie, and ourselves made the trek back home with no issues.  Overall Rathbun 2018 was a great time for us, I hope everyone else enjoyed the trip.

Did everyone get out before the storms rolled through?

We left around noon, Tim left about 11:30, J/L stayed till 3pm-ish, Trent was gone when J/L left.   We had nothing but hot and cloudy heading home, J/L had a few raindrops headed back North.  We had a few raindrops while out on the lake, but no lightning, so we stayed out Wed and Thur.
