Re: Thunder on the Loup 2010

The races are ran about 40 to 50 yards from the shore so watching is great and there is lots of shade. It only cost a few bucks per person last year. I do not recall how much it was but I am guessing it was maybe 5 bucks or so. Not to much for a good day. The times are Race Schedule: Saturday, July ...

Re: Coming to Nebraska soon

Yes I supplied the tools and was one of the people that helped get the grass rake back on so he could put on the climax for the show.
Looking forward to meeting you up there also. You all have a safe trip up this way.

Bring your boats up. We do not care what kind of power you are using. We just enjoy seeing the different boats and meeting other boaters. I am not going to be able to take my boat out this year but it looks like it will be done so I can tow it along and let it set on the bank and see where it is goi...

Re: Coming to Nebraska soon

Bring any kind of airboat we love it all up here in NE. Tell Stan I will have my tool box with me again just in case. I think my new boat will be done and I will have it up there but I will not be able to go out in it or in the water. My boat is getting done faster than I am healing up.

Re: Thunder on the Loup 2010

Lots of sandbars on the Platte river and the water is a little high. I was out on the Platte in May and it was great. I have not been up on the Loup river this year but from what I have been hearing from some that have been it is great. I totaled my boat out on May 23rd and got a gash cut in my leg....

Re: Nebraska NRD at it again

I found out on Sunday when I unloaded my boat at the 64 ramp that they have dumped gravel on the bottom of the ramp to make it to shallow to get the boat of the trailer. I ended up with the noise of my boat pointed up at about a 45 degree angle and did not know what was going to happen. I had slid t...

I do not know about your rivers and lakes down there but here in NE the Platte River raises and lowers about a foot each day. Here is a link to the monitoring station out where I boat out of. It goes down in the day time and comes up at night. I do not know any real reason for it. http://waterdata.u...

Re: Platt River access

Welcome, come on up. I am not sure about up that far. There is a public ramp in Fremont. That is about as far west as I have ever been myself. I am sure someone else will jump in here. If not I will ask some people that I know that may not be on here.
