I just moved back to the Des Moines area and found a sweet spot to winch. If anyone in the area has a winch and wants to hit some spots, let me know. I've got a bunch of people down to film it and even extra boards to trash if need be. Let me know if anyone is down.

Let me go get a little more info on this site. I'd hate to have you come down this way Andy just to get kicked out fast. I will try to get some info tomorrow and get back to you all.

I also live in WDM. I would be down to winch, and I have a boat if any of you guys are still interested in trying to get out on the water.

I sent you both PM's. I'm down to winch whenever, and if you're taking the boat out, let me know too, and I'll do the same!

I've got a winch thats almost done if you guys haven't found one yet. I'm up in Granger. I've got it up for sale if someones interested in purchasing a winch.

There's a triple elevated pond on the corner of NE46th ave and NE 17th ct in Des Moines you guys need to winch! It's in an area that would be kind of low key on a weekend.
I've got about 10 ponds off the Hwy 141 exit marked on Google maps if you guys want multiple winch spots.
There's also a 900 foot long pond about 1 mile west of the mile long bridge that me and a buddy winched this spring.

Matt,
You should come with!
There's also a 3-high pond at the Jordan Creek mall, but I'm pretty sure that would be a 1 and done hit as the cops would be there pretty fast!

I'm working on a google map of a few spots I have in mind. lets collaborate and pick out some of the sickest spots. In the mean time, if anyone wants to ride, I wouldn't mind giving it a go and seeing how my knee holds up.

Loren, just let me know what you're thinking for riding, and I'm game. Just give me a couple days notice so I make sure to not plan anything for that day. I've got stuff to build a rail on site too, so thats an option too. Just let me know!

also, if anybody wants to buy a great working winch, mine is 6.5HP, and I'm looking to unload it so I can build my next one around a recent Craigslist pick-up of a 9HP Briggs! Not looking to make anything off it, just want to get enough back to pay for the parts
