Ok, so it was pretty nice here in NH today...73 degree air temp,48 degree water temp. I couldn't wait to get the first run of the year in, so I brought my daughters for moral support, my wonderful wife was driving the boat ('05 Tige 22i)on an empty lake. <BR> <BR>Intentionally didn't bring the wetsuit, strapped my board on, stood on the deck, handle in hand, line untangled, and gave the wife specific instructions to not dally getting me out of the water!! <BR> <BR>Took some encouragement from my girls, hopped in, and HOLY SH%$!!! Needles in my skin! Took a deep breath, my wife took up the slack, saw I was ready, and hit it. I came out if the water, got my balance, and took about a 15 minute ride, warm as could be. <BR> <BR>Best ride of the season, going back out tomorrow. <BR> <BR>OH, the hardest part of the trip was the $3.97 gas on the lake!!!! WTF?

Congrats! I know it was only 15 minutes, but I'm bettin' you'll be sore as hell tomorrow! That first one seems to always get ya! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>But either way, I know it was worth EVERY minute! <BR> <BR>Ride on brotha....and welcome to the season! <BR> <BR>(not rubbin' it in, but it was in the mid 90's here in Cali today!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>)

3.97 on the lake? <BR> <BR>Try 3.97 at the pump in town around CA... <BR>thats peanuts. Gas at the lakes this year around cali will probably close to five bucks!

"48 degree water temp" talk about shrinkage.

Thats cold water. I rode 49 degree water this past weekend with a full 4/3 wetsuit and my body was toasty, but I could not feel my hands or feet because the air was only in the low 40's.

4.29 a gallon at riverpoint marina where we fill up! <BR> <BR>87$ for 20 gallons of gas!

Got my first ride in yesterday here in MN. About a month and half later than my first ride last year (darn job). I can vouge for being sore already. Wow, lower body is stiff today. But I am still stoked to be riding.
