It's not much, but it gets us on the water.

When we want to really boat, we go to LOTO or over to
Dubuque to the Mississippi river.

I'm guessing that you refering to Saylorville Lake. (reservior).
if so are there any restrictions there?

Thanks guys, would take some getting used to since I can be on the water in 20 minutes from where I am now. If this deal goes through I would probably be around Omaha, or more likely the Iowa side due to the taxes, possibly nothern Missouri. Just would suck to have a 5 hour trailer to good water.

I feel ya... I've had opportunities to move out of state for employment, but the thought of not having my lake 15 minutes from my house makes me sick...

LOTO! It's 3 hours for me, but worth every minute.
