We have a pretty good scene on Lake Travis. Lots of fast boats and a nice community of people.

2nd what Capt Yarrr said. Lake Travis is good for big powerboats. You can easily run 100 miles in a day.

PK is a beautiful lake, hope to make it back there 1 of there days. Test drove my Talon on Clear lake down near Galveston area, lots of monster homes on the lake, saw a BIG skater on a lift there....

Ill be bringing my Baja 272 down here in the next couple of weeks and storing with Pier 121 Marina at lewisville. That will be my main lake. I will go to PK and Texoma a couple times a year though for sure.

Looking ahead hope we do not go back into the drought like mid 2010 thru 2014. Kind of seems that way so hoping I just jinx the drought by saying so.
