Are any of you heading to Chicago for the fireworks on the 3rd? We are thinking of heading across. We will be going out of Portage.

Hey Payton, we should be out there for the fire works! Look for the yellow/blue scarab "Stress Test"
More then likely after we will go down river over to "slow down" Bar for a few....... see ya out there!

payton,
went by the barn yesterday and you boat was just about the only one there. It looked kind of lonely!!
I stop in just about everyday and vist with a friend of mine that is working on the two cruizers right by where you pull out of the barn. I picked my cat up yesterdayand had it with me, will most likely put in to day, have some carb adjustments to make. If you are there will probaly finally meet you. Joe calls you "big john" I told him your name was steve and he said he didn't care, wait to you see him," Big John"!! anyway, if you are out today please look me up!

Payton,
It was nice seeing you on the lake. Your boat is awesome. We'll have to try to get a group together to hang out at the beach one of these days. We caught up with Obnoxus and Boatnut 1 at boater’s beach, "hot water". I didn't feel like anchoring so I went a mile out and floated. Lake Michigan doesn’t get any better than it was today.

We took a run over to Michigan City for lunch and saw Eliminator flying the other direction. All I can say is WOW!! That cat is impressive. There is a new place on the river in Michigan City on the river called Bridges. They had no air but a nice patio to get out of the sun. There were 8-10 slips for the restaurant docking plus a wall that could be used to raft some boats.

Default Passing each other

Candyman35 and Payton,
Real sorry we didnt hook up but the boat was really acting up on the dock speeds, kept dying just about everytime I put it in gear,
we did not go close to any of you on the beach because of this also candyman35 thats where we were coming from the new diner on the river wasnt able to stop,boat just didnt like the docks today, so we finally got it turned around and headed back, It ran just great on the higher numbers. Just got thru putting new drives and props on,wife dosen't like to co faster than 65MPH, sometimes I cheat a little, What she doesn't know won't hurt her..
Hope to see all of you out for the 4th!!
Payton nice tow vehicle,farming must be good!

We won't be out for the fire works (amature night). But we will be out on the lake July 4 thru the 7th. some where.

Where are you guys planning on hanging out maybe we can meet up.

We are usually on the south end of the lake Wells street or boaters, East Chicago, or Hammond.

Mark

Let's see, I'll try to get these in order.:

Sydwayz, Let me know, We'll have to go boating if you come out this way. DeMotte is great. We have 2 stop lights now

Candyman, thanks for the kind words. Hope to see you out there again soon.

Eliminator, Farming isn't that good.



That's one of the fringe benifits of the wife owning her own business too.

Mr Cig, We'll be at Well's St. Beach on Friday. We've got some family coming in and we'll meet up out there. I'll look for you.

Here's what I'm driving. No that's not Bruce Willis with me.
