Our lake in upstate NY was packed for the 4th, busiest I have seen it in years. However, even though the weather was perfect all weekend, Sat and Sun were not nearly as busy.

It was too nutz, the fireworks were across the lake so we didn't even want to get caught up in that mess of everyone trying to get over there. I guess that's one way to save gas, launch, put-put over to the cove, tie-up and don't go anywhere.
LOL, sounds like 50% of the boaters at highport. 10 minute ride to and from the islands.........

Sorry I didn't get your email in time to meet up.

Texoma traffic was down a little. Saw some nice boats, gunslinger just about did circles around me. Might as well of been standing still. Sweet boat.

Boat traffic at our ramp here at the marina has been down all year. Only launched 4 boats for the 4th. Weather wasnt that great. But I think the economy has more of an effect. Gas on the river is about 4.60 a gallon for regular.
