We joined a WW trip to Shasta a few years ago and loved it so much that the group kept it going. This year we are few people short. We figured this was the perfect way to introduce some new blood. If you are interested please PM me and I will get you more details.
Here is a pic from last year:
Trip Dates - Friday, June 6, 2008 through Friday June 13, 2008
Location - Jones Valley Resort, Shasta Lake
Boat- Oddyssey
Cost - $750 per person (includes lodging, food, beer and gas for 3 wake boats and houseboat)

My name is Buzz, and I'm a houseboat-a-holic.


I am surprised we were not able to fill this with our peeps. I have been bugging Sara and Dennis, but I keep getting the "thinking about it" type of response. Hey, their loss, right? They may still be in, but I told them time is short, and the spots will be snatched up pretty quick. Opening it up to our WW family is a great idea. Heck, that's how I got started in the houseboat stuff, and met all of you.

For those who have not been on a HB trip with us, or one at all for that matter, we have a BLAST! From the day I get off the houseboat, all I think about for the rest of the year is when the next trip is. I should just buy a HB and live on it. Seriously, this is a hell of a deal. Guaranteed good time. It would be great to get a couple new WWer's in our group.

Hit any of us up if you have any questions.

4 months, 9 days, 11 hours See what I mean!

BTW Tate - Thought we decided on the Corinthian. Maybe I am just confused !

You're right Buzz, it's the Corinthian. I had a typo in my original information post and Tate just copied and pasted that info. Sorry about that.

What arm are you guys planning on staying on?
Old     (litlone873)      Join Date: Jan 2005       01-30-2008, 12:29 PM Reply   
The last two years, we've stayed pretty close to the resort and stayed on the Sqaw Creek Arm. I presume that unless "our spot" is taken or it's too crowded, we will go there again.

It sounds a little more like my speed vs last year at the spring ride. After that I realized I'm just not able to keep up with twenty somethings that party without sleep anymore.

A few of us have been trying to set something up to head back down to Shasta so we can visit Phaeton and family. I'll check with them and get back with you.

I know what you mean Cliff. That's why we stay at the campground the last couple years of Spring Ride.

As for this trip, we are all 30+ yrs old, can definitely get our drink on and have a good time but eventually, we pass out.

Old     (litlone873)      Join Date: Jan 2005       01-30-2008, 2:35 PM Reply   
Our max is 14 people which means even the last person to pay gets at least a couch.
Old     (wakeboardlasvegas)      Join Date: Mar 2007       01-30-2008, 3:37 PM Reply   
well i wouldnt say the max is 14.. there is always room up top for tents and matresses. and hell, at this stage in the game i might just do that and save you all from the methane!!

please be advised that i will be 28 and sarah wil be the big 30!

also, i dont think renee said this but 750 would be the max you would pay, last year we got a refund over 100 i think but i am not saying that a refund is guarenteed tho

Woops, didn't mean to age you guys before your time!

This boat doesn't have room for tents up top but could handle and air mattress in the upper galley area and maybe a small one by the flying bridge. Also, the lounge chairs on top of the penthouses could be used too or removed to make room for another air mattress.

FYI.. I just heard from Dan and he's looking into it.

Damn, I would be down but it starts the same weekend as the MN. PWT stop. Could stop by later in the week for a day visit to say hi, & have a beer if I could find you guys. Sounds FUN.....
Old     (buzz_grande)      Join Date: Mar 2004       01-30-2008, 6:09 PM Reply   

Kim and I both have BIG birthdays right before the trip too (April). Dude, sorry about the razor last year. I can imagine that trimming through my rainforest of hair took quite a toll on the razor. I am sure that Raul's armpits put a few miles on it too, as well as the ladies . Just so you know, I have been staying all trimmed up (just for you), so it won't happen again. I will bring my own just in case!

Don't worry about trying to keep up. I am usually the oldest one on the trip. I may not be the first one to pass out, but eventually, I do.

If you come, we are shaving you, you hairy monkey!

so, i know the local LEO is usually cruising around but is there anything about putting up a slider that is against the rules?
Old     (seattle)      Join Date: Mar 2002       01-31-2008, 12:54 PM Reply   
We've set up a kicker twice on the Sac arm, and brought a rave slider down with us once on the Pit. The water patrol actually stopped and watched us hitting it for awhile one year. I don't know if they'd have issue with installing something of a more permanent design or not.

I see Tate was boarding today. I left a pm explaining our situation earlier and hadn't heard back.

I'm in with a few people and we're on shortened leashes (wives) I can explain off line. We're going to have to get our own boat, but if you'll have us we'd love to tag along.

Give me a shout if you can.

There is no More Bounce in California - that was sooooo two years ago. Please move on.... let it gooooooooooooooo! If you ever want to play that again - snort some salt and put lemon juice in your eye - it's more soothing. Who does that anyway??

we need confirmation from the powers that be but i think there is 1 more spot and then anyone else would be an added bonus, but will most likely be "roughing it" so to speak

Ok, here is what I know.

Jerry is in, check is in the mail for full amount.

Cliff and friends are coming, but it's my understanding they are bringing a pontoon boat and will be crashing on that. Cliff, please confirm.

I have a few people other people that have expressed interest so as soon as I know for sure what's happening with Cliff's group I can answer better.

Hey Renee,

Your correct, we'll be staying the 6th through the 9th. We rented a 30' deck boat for sleeping arrangements so we don't over run your boat with a bunch of dudes. Tate was going to look into possibly having us buy in on the food ect and let me know.

I haven't heard back from Bond, but I did talk to Pheaton. His family lives in Redding, and their definitely planning on hooking up with us. He works for Sky Ski so he'll probably have some skis for us to play around with if anyone wants to try one out.
Old     (litlone873)      Join Date: Jan 2005       02-02-2008, 10:38 AM Reply   
Thanks Cliff.

So here is what we have confirmed:

Renee & Tate (upper stateroom)
Buzz & Kim (upper stateroom)
Ian & Cathy (lower stateroom)
Jonny & Sarah (lower stateroom)
Jerry (penthouse) as soon as his check arrives
That's 9 people.

We still have room for 5 more people. The penthouses (2 of them) are supposed to fit 2 people each so Jerry might have to bunk up with someone (Sara??). Then there are the couches that I think are supposed to fit 2 each, but really, only one. There is room on the floor and up top in the upper galley area as well as the loung chairs above the spa and maybe room for a single near the flying bridge for those willing to "rough it".

And for those wondering... no, there is not a price break for "roughing" it. Same price for everyone.

Hey, Tate:

I would love to grab a crew together and meet up with your crew on the weekend. I moor my houseboat at Silverthorn which is right around the corner from Jones Valley. I can fit about 15 people on my houseboat. It's a small one but a nice little HB. Keep in touch with me, send me an email and I can locate you guys on the lake. Do you go down Pit or Squaw?

Also if you boat gets overloaded, I can always take some. I charge $75.00 a person no matter how days on the lake, everyone brings their own food and drinks.

Things are looking up. Glad to see it.

Dan - Just do it!

Jerry - I have been working on her (well, not really "working" on her). I keep buggin' her, but she has been working like crazy, etc. That's the excuse so far. I would say not likely.

Kimmy, Randy, Cliff, etc - It would be great to meet up with everyone. Glad to see the response from WW.

Christopher - You've got mail!

We will be there at least on the weekends unless Ryleigh is competing somewhere.

The lake is finally coming up. Still almost 100' down though. With all the snow we received last week it should be rising fast once it warms up.

Looking forward to meeting and seeing everyone.

Hey Tate I'm from Nor cal, Disco Bay. My wife and I would love to go. We know Kimmy she came to our wedding just before moving down south. Never towed my boat that far but would be willing. How much would you charge us for day trips? We have to shore camp. We have a baby now, and want her to be the next extreme baby wake boarder. So we are getting her started early.
What better way to start her photo album than with a House Boat trip. Anyway we would pay for our time on the HB but would shore camp. Plus I have a boat to help with pulls for others.
