Re-union Friday night recon ride

Postby basketcase0302 » Thu Sep 28, 2006 7:06 am

Hey ya'll,

Trying to get a Friday night Oct. 6 "recon ride" organized to check out the marsh before Sat. Oct. 7th. Would help most people decide where to ride that Saturday instead of a bunch of people burnin' up engines>

Anybody up to the ride that Friday :roll:

The marsh is fun at night once the dew drops. Been through it the last couple weeekends. It's dry as a bone from bullsh#t hill to the bar pit, but the tall grass makes for easy riding. Look out for a couple mud spots they can be sticky!

They been runnin but they didn't hide so good LOL we got enough I think , I just aint sure if we need them at the krvsa cookout or the saturday night cookout. I think we got about 5gallons of legs and Stan and I are goin this weekend so we should be good to go.

I checked my prop tonight, blades are all set the same, nothin slipped. I welded all the broken wires back on, I fixed the alt. belt I cut off last weekend because it was squealin and I was froggin, no time to adjust it. We was on the last hole for the night. I found and fixed a bad ground connection on my msd box, mighta been the problem with the boat cuttin out climbin a serious hill saturday night with 4 of us on it, course it was a little steep to walk up anyways, I got em over halfway up and it stopped right between 2 trees, and couldn't wiggle it just had to pour it on it but it came on up. Then the trailer was sitting cockeyed in the ditch longways not crossways so had to chase stan down the side of the road till I hit a spot to jump it back on the trailer. We did ok on the frogs though so it was worth it. I will get the bugs outta this thing soon. I havent tried a long dry run yet only ran a 1/2 mile or so to get into one frog hole I found. I don't mind tryin the dry gardner marsh especially if basket is there to get me out if I get stuck. When you got folks around you can try anything once. LOL Where stan and I been testing it there was no other boats for backup so had to be a little laid back. I will do my best to be there friday afternoon/evening so ya'll bring a rope I may need it.

Hey ya'll,

We still gotta agree on a time and place to met Friday night :roll: I know most will be out of Camp Mack....

Maybe make the decision then to ride other area than the marsh.

Basket; given the water level in the marsh reports on here it may be the better part of valor to meet at B.S. HILL and figure from there. The marsh would certainly be a challenge but is it really worth it, dunno, I put mine in some slightly tough stuff saturday afternoon and night and it did alright. Well except for the summit alternator split in half, but that was no big deal, it just meant frogging was pretty much done for the evening.

So probably need to play it by ear, and see who all is sittin on the hill and wants to ride and where, riding the lake shore is boring but fixin your boat is expensive, so weigh it out. Hope to see ya'll there.

Hey Ya'll - BS Hill is surrounded by black mud right now. The Bus, at least, offers short grass and the trail out of North Cove to Catfish / Square / Bar / Billy Goat is at least grass covered......

Hope we don't just try to tear boats up.......Plenty of our members are great airboaters and still on the road to "Bad Azz".

Just a thought.....

Big Daddy, Is lake cypress fish camp open at night? Maybe ride over that way. Haven' t been there since the poker run but there was some nice running on the north and west side of cypress.

BigDaddy, I understand your comment.
Conditions are right for some folks to get hurt (limited water, narrow trails) and we sure don't want that to happen.

I think you made a very good point.

Dead River was down..then up...then headed down again...BPS was in Reedy Creek this week and should know. Otherwise, it's the ditch - plenty of water - then the north Cypress shoreline - great riding & sliding; or the south shoreline, good.

Lake Cypress is open for refreshments until 9:00 PM.

Also, hard to beat the Bus at night...plenty of room for friends..particularly convenient to those staying at Ms. Betty's and Grape Hammock or Overstreet's.

Decisions, Decisions..I'm in for either or both.

I"ve run through the marsh when it was completely dry and don't really plan on doing it again any time soon. The boat and myself faired well but I just don't like running that hard without a good reason. Skinny water makes for a nice ride any day.

Big Daddy,

Alright the marsh is out :cry: Unless......like you said North Cove to Catfish Pond :wink:

North to Cypress, South to ride lake edge is fine too.

Camp Mack for rendevous ok :roll: What time :roll:

Saw regular gasoline at Plant City racetrack for 2.10 today! Let's go burn some cheaper gas :cheers:

Still need more boats! Look like a wagon train rounding the lake :hello1:

Sounds like the BUS to me if my vote counts. I seem to be doing agood job tearin stuff up. I was running a little high grass this last weekend and broke the alternator in half, actually the screws which hold it together came out. I put a new one on tonight.

Havin fun is what it is all about, just tryin to tear a boat up is not fun to me. If there is a reason to I will try and drive mine anywhere but there ahs been a many a boat bite the dust in the marsh when it is dry and it is a long pull outta there.

The grass near the wate rat the buss will give a good challenge to quite a few and maybe even my new one will hang up on the way back to the lake, comin off the lake is easy because you are pushin water and ridin the wave, aww but goin back thats a different animal, maybe the dew will do it for most of us. And if anyone wants a short dry run to check out their boat they can always leave the bus by the back trail over to north cove it is usually moderately sticky and if that is not enough just turn left when you see the water and run up by the oaks till you get to the water again, an dafter that just bear left a little more and there should be lots of really nasty black mud just around the corner with someones name on it. The good part is we can all watch from the water without getting stuck trying to spectate don't ya know, AIRBOATING IS A SPECTATOR SPORT afterall. Should be a good time comin down for sure, yeeehaww ya'll.
