Default Wanna talk rough! Check it out!!

Grand Haven, MI beach camera. Bear in mind the light house is about 50' tall... the walk way is 10' above the pier, which itself is 5' above the water. I'd say 8 footers minimum!!

Well check the forcast.... 13-18 footers. Parnell.... wanna go boating???

Looks just like the day in Aug/03 when I hooked up with Maskerade and two of those Apache guys up there and we ran across the Lake, did the Milwaukee Poker Run [ PRA ] and back on Sunday. Good memories. And the Apache guys brought back all the hardware and cash. 1st and 2nd prize !!
Are they on the board ? Wondering if they remember me?

Hi Bob welcome to OSO, I remeber you and your crew, that was a great weekend. Steve with Bluemoon is not on OSO, but you will see him in KW this weekend. The run across did get really ruff, Krista said we should get a 47, but we got a 41 for right now. Take care, hope all is well, Steve.
