You can tell everyone's out having a good time at the reunion
I've never seen this forum this slow, I could only count four
posts on three topics. I'm a little green with envy.

Sorry we did not get a chance to meet Plum unless you bought 50/50 tickets from me at the shindig. But it was a great time with all. Beautiful night Saturday night. Thanks to KRVSA and Big Daddy for fixing the food and making me some frog legs Saturday night since I missed out in the afternoon. Had a great ride and met some new people. Had a good time Saturday night back at the Liars Lodge with some old friends. Sorry Skeeter but I am posting, I hope you feel better tomorrow. You were fun to hang out with Saturday!!! Had a great time riding Sunday as well with some old friends and some new ones. Red Dwarf it was nice to put a name with a face and you are welcome in our area anytime. That is one pretty boat and you did a great job!!!
Anyway, another one has passed and no one wanted to go home. I will see some of you this coming weekend at the races.

Plum Crazy - I did not get to meet you.... but I saw you out there!!!

I was sitting on the MLK Ridge (as Unkle Bubba so politically correct has named it LOL) and I saw Jdotson's triple rudder boat come by followed by a purple blur. After adjusting my sunglasses and squinting.... I figured it must be Plum Crazy!!!!!! :lol:

However, you guys arrived just a moment before we were going to move along, and we did not get the chance to meet ya in person.

DANG!!! THere were a lot of boats out there!!!!

Has anyone heard from Robby Bondurant? His boat is AWESOME especially for a first boat built by hand. He had a few bumps in the road, and took off to make some repairs. As I was leaving, I heard he was on his way back. Robby - it was an honor to meet ya!

Same to you Wood. You are yet another class act among the world of airboaters.

You guys ROCK!!!


P.S. Dakota - what are you talking about Skeeter? He's alright in my book. In fact, he's a hero!!! I witnessed him several times keeping the walls of the Liar's Lodge from falling over. :lol:

Plum - then I saw you in that little boat. Several times that day I seen you!!!! I'm sure everyone I was with got sick of my saying "I want to get TWO of them little boats and put them BOTH on ONE trailer"!!!!!

Yeah, they look like a lot of fun.

I saw the young guy on the purple boat, and recalled something about JD's pop-n-law. I figured I must have got it wrong because there is noo way that young guy was anyone's dad-ini-law.

It all makes sense now!!!

Still sorry I messed getting a chance to meet you out there..... there's always the next one.

Same to you JD.... I had a chance to meet you at the Milk Bus the night you smacked into that tree. Maybe one of these days we'll both be hanging out at the same hangout at the same time. LOL

Glad you had fun! Plum - yes that little boat looked like a BLAST!!!!!!!! Did it handle the numerous wakes and rough stuff alright? There was not much freeboard on any of those little low-slung boats.

that'd be my only fear. Otherwise, you'd have a hard time getting me off one too!!! I'm not sure I'd want one as my ONLY boat, but as a TOY..... no doubt!!!!

It seemed like every time I was pulling up everyone else was leaving. There were about 10 boats in the group I was riding with so we had a few delays traveling from one spot to another. I did get a chance to talk to quite a few SA members Friday night at the bus.

Saturday night didn't have as many boats as I thought would be out there but we found Rich Andrews and his group and the party was on. We made it in around 3 A.M. Sunday morning and had a great time. Rich you need to let me know when you're going to be running around Moore Haven.


Man, where do I start? I had a marvelous weekend

I met a lot of folks and they were all great.

Rick, great to finally meet you. Wish you could have stayed for the fun.

Dakota, thanks for the comments. Great to meet you and Chris. Y'alls boat is very impressive, rides like a Rolls Royce!

Mood, I enjoyed seeing your maps. Please make one of Orange and Lochloosa!!!!

Robbie, your boat is reeal purty. SOrry we didn't get to ride again after you fixed it.
