Yep, Jagerman, it's funny you say that. Someone was rafted off to us Sat. night got invited by a girl to dance on the boat she was on behind us. So, he harmlessly accepted the invitation. Not 5 seconds later, some extremely drunk older guy came out of the boat screaming and shoved the guy 3 boats over to the docks. We're pretty sure that crew was on the Jerry Springer Show at one point in time.
I still love the Bay, however. I don't know why things are different than they were 5-10yrs ago. I really feel bad for guys and gals in there 20's now that didn't get to have all the crazy experiences I have had there. I am very grateful for those. My first trip up there was '98 and it changed my summers from then on.
Our game plan for Island participation is going to be focussing on Christmas, and maybe one more trip each year. Last year was my first Christmas and I had a freaking blast. It's just hell when you have to start coaching football the monday after.
Now as far as alternative plans, goes, Candita, Taz, and everyone else interrested, I made mention of the Ozarks several times last year and tried to put a house boat trip together. Since it is 10 hrs. from Cincy, I need to get a house boat to make it worth it, since I would be out there for a week. I pushed the trip the best I could, however I couldn't get enough people to commit and lost my deposite. I am not giving up on the idea, though, and I'm going to try to get people interrested for the following year. I can't accomplish this alone, however. I need to find 10 to 12 seriously interrested parties. My plan is to try and make it an annual trip. Hell, if I had the money, I'd go no matter who else went.
Anyone who hasn't seen the (good) pictures of the goings on out there last year, pm me an email address. I'll bet it sparks your interrest. You made mention (Candita) of bras hanging from radars. Well, where we're going, there are no bras........
