Hey hey Kevin, ya I would really like to come out again soon, just need to find a weekend when I'll be around here (Summer is way too short here). I have my ski parked at the lake in Washington and have been putting a ton of time on it there the last few months. Other than a few weekends in the okanagan I am down there a lot. I will keep an eye on here though for the next weekend I am around.
That boat launch sounds pretty bad! Luckily you have a nice 4x4. "Even though it's one of them there toys's." (Quoting red neck in Patullo boat launch pub).
