Wow. What a riot! I sure was great to get out and meet a whole bunch of our OSO brothers. We really had a great time and appreciated everybodys hospitality. Too bad the weather took a digger on Sunday. Oh well. Just be glad you guys didn't have to drive back east. Man that traffic was a killer. Stop & go all the way from the 90-94 split into Madison. Took us two hours to travel that distance.

It was great to meet Cord and PreferredStock and hook up with hp500efi again!

You've done a great job rigging your boat.....hope the engine hatch portion of the project works out for you. Thanks for helping load up the fire pit with wood. It lasted well into the wee hours of the morning!

Thanks for the tips on getting a twin engine boat into the slip with throttles only. It was a hoot watching you stand facing the rear and back in without touching the wheel! No more coiled lines on the dock after you and Laura showed us the powerboater knot.

Best damn Bloody Mary I've ever tasted. WOW! Thanks for leaving some of the mix for us! Logan did an awesome job sketching our boats! The Pantera one is on the fridge!

Again.....thanks to all of you for travelling to meet up with our tribe!

Hey guys its Chad, the newcomer here. We are camping at Black-hawk in De Soto next weekend. There is a large group of jet-boat guys getting together in Prairie du Chien that weekend plus its my birthday.
Anybody going to be out?

Were also thinking about making a run with the kids to the river museum they just opened in Dubuque, weather permitting.

Thanks to the "Liquid Jungle" group for the good time. You made us feel very welcome and at home. We will be back. Thanks for the help getting out of the water. I was not sure I would be able to get the boat out without "power-on" But things worked great.
I hope Art doesn't yell too long.
We forgot to leave the Poker run form with you so I'll have to mail it.
4-1/2 hours up there on 7 cyl. 4 hours home on 8 cyl. Truck ran much better. No traffic to speak of on Monday.

Hp500efi Jeff, good to see you and the family again. hope to run into you guy's again this summer.

Back to work for now!
