Guys Weekend

Last weekend was a blast up at Monte Lake, just out of Kamloops. We kneeboarded most of the time trying new tricks. The lake was cold but almost glassy all day long! Other then a few fishing boats, we were the only ski boat. After 4 hrs straight on Saturday, our arms were shot from doing 360s, 41 mph whips, trying to stand up on a kneeboard... it was a great! Unfortunately I don't have any of the pics of jumping the wake or 360s off the wake or the wipe time!
We drove down a Forestry rd and "camped" right beside the lake. It was definitely worth the drive and we will be back next year!

Langley Cruise In Pics

It was a great day for the Cruise In, great weather, lots of cars, but not as much as some years it seemed.

This was a prototype, not a production car. It drew a lot of attention.

Shocking News...

My wife said she had a surprise for me in my office... so I go look and she has signed me up for Crackbook, I mean Facebook. So now I'm tracking friends down from around the world.

Another day at Cultus!

We spent the afternoon at Cultus Lake, the water was pretty cold for swimming so we paddled around in the boat. We had lots of fun, cruising around, bouncing over the waves from several ski boats that came close by.

Scott saw a stick floating out by one of the swimming area buoy markers and wanted to pick it up and bring it back to shore. So he grabbed it and noticed fishing line was tied on it, so pretended he was fishing. I jokingly told him to keep his eyes alert for any fish jumping at the end of his line. About 5 to 10 min later as we headed back to shore, he yelled that a fish jumped!! I didn't see it but I heard the splash! I told him to "reel" in his line and as he did we realized that he did have a fish on! I grabbed the stick and tried to "reel" this fish in, got it close up to the boat and let Scott hold his "fishing rod" while Sarah took a few pics.

Scott was super excited and proud of his very first fish. I finally managed to get the hook out of its mouth and then we let it go. The poor fish was winded after being caught and dragged along behind our boat... not sure how long he was there.

All in all, we had a great day at the lake and came home with fish story that we will never forget!
