Sorry, that was not an excellent day – no way!

Pull out of Newport’s breakwater and there’s all the SCOPE big dawgs. Come up on the sticks and head north along the coast – gentle desert breeze blowing offshore, nothing but blue above, t-shirts, shorts, sun block and the big lake is behaving.

Not an excellent day, nope!

Running up the coast at 70 mph. Fresh’s dry pipes barking off my port, Rick’s dry pipes barking off my starboard. The hair on my arms is at attention. This kind of run is the reason you own a boat. Just when the adrenaline is maxing out, another sound moves along side – Devil Man with Nort videoing.

Twenty five minutes running my little kitty up to Long Beach in the salt with the big dawgs, I can tell you one thing for certain – I wasn’t thinking about my appointments for Monday morning, the damn manic-depressive stock market, the marketing guys trying to crowd onto my schedule or which college little princess is going to get into. You just can’t be more in the moment than that!

Nope, that wasn’t an excellent day Gary – that was surreal!

Driving home, Kathy is asking all kinds of questions. Which boat would I pick, steps or no steps, how much is insurance on a 38’ Cig, what’s the fuel burn, can we get a porta-potty in the cabin?

Guys, I think my boats for sale
Aint it fun UT Your wife and my girlfriend would get along JUST FINE

Hey I am out there on the 27th to the 2nd. I know I know a short trip BUT I think there is another run on the Friday or the Saturday. Hope you can make it again.

Put your best foot forward!

Great Video!!

Nort, what software are you using to capture and edit the video? I use Ulead but the quality is no where near what you get.

BamBam- It's taken with a DV cam, and uploaded to my PC and edited with Pinnicle Video version 8. There are two versions. First one has no music was a quicky to get on line. The other is more polished. I hope people copy them by the end of the week, because I will be deleteing them. It's too pricy to pay for the data traffic all the time.

Audio - Where does your girlfriend live?

We are going to the lake for Thanksgiving weekend, its the kickoff weekend for the desert season. Big desert poker run. So, afraid we can't make the SCOPE run - bummer!

Sorry were going to miss you this time around, but Spring Heatwave Poker run for sure!

We needed some rough water to make things happen....yeah, I did put the small pulley's on with some octane additive....122 is about rilght!!!

If it's true, I am totally surprised. Did you really get the video to work all by yourself, or did your assistant Michelle do it for you?

I wasn't being picky, I just know what a poodle you can be so if that thing on the bow was a bird ****, I figured I'd wipe if off for you. But since it wasn't, then I couldn't.

You friggin Cig people got me thinking about #6's and stuff.
