ive been diving all over travis and in that area. it literally drops off like a cliff. ive sat at 80 feet deep looking over the original river bed, and it looks like the abyss.

Wow, you can see at 80'?

You can't see anything past 1 foot where we boat. If you drop your sunglasses in the Potomac River in 3 feet of water..... they're gone, even where it's a sandy bottom which is rare. Most of the river bottom resembles what you would find in a baby's diaper.

Given the nature of the event at the beach, I am really starting to worry about you Clay.

Hmmm, maybe OSO rainbow flags would be a hot item.

That's definitely true in Lake Travis, as I learned to dive there too. ROTF on Hippie Hollow - you guys can see better looking scantily clad women in Austin from a canoe at Barton Springs...........

LMAO! Yes, Hippie Hollow is known for naked, gay men. And, the Summer Splash is sponsored by the Gay and Lesiban community. And yes, there are no supermodels at Hippie Hollow.

But, Austin is a cool town. Everyone is tolerant of everyone else. It's a very non-judgemental town.

I am very straight, but I like to hangout with bi and lesiban women. They are much more fun than "straight" women. Some of them are actually good-looking.

Y'all come down some weekend, and I will show you how to party "Austin Style"!
