Friday night we gassed up the boat over at Matt''s house and then headed to my place to watch the wings game. My girlfriend (Andra) got up about 5:30am to get ready, my cousin and I slept till 6:30am and showered and packed the coolers.
We then wanted to stop for breakfast but we were suppose to leave at 7am and Big Apple Bagel wasn't open yet, so the girlfriend wasn't happy, but my cousin and I were cause that meant we had to hit Mickey D's.
Then went to the boat and Matt couldn't leave yet cause his wife was at work and his parents were not there to watch the kid yet.
So we sat around and loaded up the boats.
Ended up leaving around 8am and headed out.
My crew started drinking right away, I of course being the good Captain just drank redbull and coffee.
WE met up with a 3rd boat and made our way over to the Detroit River and all the way down, got to the gas dock and filled up.
Then had a great ride across lake erie with barely a ripple in the water and 70+ degree weather.
We arrived around noon and docked met up with the other boat so we had our own 4 tied off on C-Dock, and only about 4 boats up.
After tying up it was really hot and we decided to all go to the pool bars and enjoy the weather. had a great time at the pool bars. Got drunk and went back to the boat for some grub.
Then went over and saw mills and bryan, bryan wasn't feeling so hot, but we enjoyed the beers and meeting new people.
We then hit the town going to just about every bar on the strip
Saw a cop in front of the longest bar knock a guy down hard, as the guy and his buddy were starting something. Walked away from all of that.
Went back to the boat and put my crew to bed, however my girlfriend and I decided to keep going, so us two and the neighbor couple that came down with us went over to the skyway as the boathouse was closed.
Had a good time there and drank a bunch.
Oh, actually right before we left for the skyway matt was still up on the neighbors boat, he went to walk on the swim platform for some unknown reason and slipped right in. For some reason he had a coat on still, which was hilarious.
He got out and started throwing otu cigerette packs, for some reason he had 3 open packs on him, all lost!! He also had his wallet adn a bunch of otehr stuff. I have pictures of it all that I will post.
So after the skyway we came back adn went to bed.
The next day I slept in per usualy as nothing can wake me up. I slept till almost 11 and everyone was already started on mamossas and bloddy marys.
I had a couple and then a abeer and then it was golf cart rally time!!!
We had 16 people on two carts. First stop was Joe's Bar where we hung on the back patio most of the time. However I did run into the walkers there and bs'ed for a little bit with them, but then they were heading into town.
WE hung out for a while but the wings game was starting so we went over to the skyway. The bartender couldn't get the game on so he called the owner and hooked it up the best he could, it was enough to keep us there. besides the two man, actually one woman adn one man band were a lot of fun outside....making us wear silly hats and such, we had a blast there.
After the game was pretty much over and some people had some food in them to prepare we went to the winery. Once again we had a great time cheering and having a lot of fun. Our 16 man flip cup game turned into a 64 man game. We also have pictures of this I believe.
After that it was back to the boat to eat..think that is when I grabbed some corndogs, which after a weekend of me being on the island they ran out of on Monday. I like corndogs.
After eating and resting we headed out to Mr Eds and met up with mills and a bunch of other people. Did some shots and had some drinks. Then I have no idea after that.....back to the boat to hang out for a bit I am guessing.
Next morning got up and had some water and got some lobster bisque with Andra. We then waited around for a bit and tidied up the boat a little before heading out.
The way home was rough. There were 6-7 footers out in the middle of lake erie, although we handled them alright some of my crew were rookies who had never experienced lake erie like that....I warned them on the way down the way home might not be as friendly.
However, the problem with big waves is that you use up a lot more gas....so matt ran out of gas right at the mouth of the detroit river. Onve of the boats that came with us towed him over to boblo.
We gassed up and continued on the way home. 3 of us were partying and having fun and jamming the tunes all the way home.
Lake st clair and the river were not as bad.
After beating matt home we decided to hop on my dinghy and try to meet them on their way in (we keep our boats on a river that takes about 25 minutes to get to the lake), however they were pulling in the canal as we were pulling out so we went for a little cruise around the river.
We then came back and unloaded the boat....which was a mess from lake erie knocking everything over.
After that Andra and I grabbed a movie and some food, and I was sleeping 20 minutes after I finsished eating, about 9pm.
Great times and it was good to see everyone!!! I still have over a fifth and about 10 redbulls still on the boat from shots we forgot to do!!!!
Glad everyone had a safe trip!!!!
