Default "other" falls

I went to the "other" falls up by Burnside last year. It is a pretty cool setup too, but the marinas nearby aren't as nice as Jamestown or Grider Hill. Not as many of the "big boys" hanging out up there, but still a rew interesting rides. The falls themselves are pretty neat, with some of the same antics going on - just a little bit more laid back, seems to me.

Otter Creek Falls is becoming a larger destination for performance boats. Usually not as spectacular of a water feature as Seventy-Six unless there have been some recent heavy rains. Probably looks like Niagara about now.

Unfortunately I will probably not be able to join you all this year. Was looking forward to meeting some of the folks from the board, but family planning got in the way. I doubt iv my 7 1/2 month pregnant other half is up for the flesh show right now, and I need to stay in her good graces if I want to get ANY boating in this year and keep peace in the home!

SO, anyone know how high the lake is now? You know the picture at Grider Hill that shows a canoeist going over the Falls? I'm thinking it might be getting up there.
Watch out for the floating debris!

Mack, look for us at 76 Falls Sat. & Sun afternoon, then on to the damn afterwards.

Unhappy Not gonna make it this year

We are not going to make it this year as Thunder Enlightening is still being built and we have already sold our 290 PQ We will be spending a lot of time on Lake Cumberland over the summer (and the coming years) so keep an eye out for us.

LPBoater, What low hanging fruit ?

Default Cumberland...Memorial day

Hey US1 how is it going, I thought I would ask you since you would take the same route to the lake. I have never been down to Cumberland but am looking at going somewhere different. Any suggestions on where to stay/unload boat? We usually go to the Ozarks and unloading there can be somewhat tricky at the resorts. Can you give me a link for more info? And about how long of a drive is it? Thanks alot,,,,,,maybe we will see you guys down there..

Mike
