M family used to pack up the 21' Checkmate, our camping gear, my brother, and myself to vacation at Lake Cumberland every year starting in the mid eighties. The family's boats changed as did Lake Cumberland.
Today, my in-laws have a houseboat and another boat on a lift at Grider Hill.
I will miss going down there for long weekends like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and that giant poker run.
Lots of fond memories were created at Lake Cumberland for me.
We're going to try to make that poker run next year.
It'll be tough leaving great, free, go-anywhere boating for confined boating though.
