^ Completely agree. I don't understand the problems others have with the wardens. If anything, I feel better when they're out there all over the place. The only time I've been approached is if we're changing riders or are stopped and just hanging out. They don't just randomly pull us over and give us a hard time. All I've been asked to show is my throwable, fire extinguisher, up to date registration, and if someone is drinking they need an ID. That's it. It takes a whopping 5 minutes. If you fail their attitude test, you're going to get hassled. Show some respect and they will often times return it.
Lake Austin is getting bad these days. No public ramps are open on Lake Travis so everyone is forced to LA. I fell last Sunday around 8:00pm and with only myself and one other boat in our section of the lake, he got within 50 feet of hitting me as I floated in the water. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN????? It was only me and him... there was 90% of the lake open but since he wasn't paying attention (looking at the tubers he was thrashing around), he drove full speed right at me and turned at the last second (I think one of him passengers yelled or something).
