Oh, too bad, Tony! These layoffs are getting pretty scary. I know that everyone at my work is pretty anxious, too. I come in everyday, looking to see if my stuff is still at my desk, or if it's been cleared out.

Tony, that sucks. I got laid off earlier this summer so I know what you are feeling. Next time you go out give me a call, I can help w/ boat gas and coaching.

I'm doing a little work on my boat right now, but it should be good to go by next weekend. It's just an I/O, but I've got some sacks and an 6ft pylon.

I'll probably be out at "the spot" next weekend, sat. or sun.

Anybody interested in wakeskating on Lake Thonotosassa or Hillsborough River? I ride at least once a week, usually on a weekday.

Hey, what's up everyone. Got back in town late Saturday night, having a nice chill day and will be ready to ride tomorrow at the river. I would like to get out about 5 or 5:30pm. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Jerrod, if you want to show up later just let me know, you are always welcome to show up later.

Tony - 7201 40th Street. Tampa, FL 33604 . That is the address for bigfoot bar and grill. If you are standing in front of bigfoot the ramp is to the right. You wil see a blue sign that says boat ramp in the driveway where the ramp is.

Wow! Usually it's hard to get anybody on a weeknight. We are going to have a packed boat:

M. Steele
M. Steele's brother
Tony Prevatt
Jerrod
DeeCee

Good thing I fixed the backseat. The wake should be very nice

Not a problem as long as everyone is not bringing bags with them. Just boards and jackets (since we don't live in the north and don't need sweatshirts), it shouldn't be a problem.

Just an fyi, I will be there at 5pm.

UPDATE: Nothing has been done yet which is really starting to irk me. Also for those that went out with Steve the other day, did any of you mistakenly grab my sunglasses? I know I got on the boat with them but did not make it off with them. Steve is going to check the boat again today but there is only 1 place they could have been on the boat and I watched steve clear the area when we left.

I got the pleasure of meeting J.D. Webb at the cable today. He was super nice and down to earth. I think it is so awesome a big pro like that still talks to the up and coming beginners. He also taught me my first invert!! Tantrum off the big kicker!! So now I thing I am going to enter the contest coming up at Mccormicks in the beginner class. Anybody else wanna ride the comp?

Yeah I have ridden with earplugs a lot as I have blown my ears out 3 times now. I get all conscious about it when i do it and then just kinda slowly wear them less and less till im not wearing them anymore.

Yeah, I'm gonna take it easy for a week and see how it goes. The doc said today that she could see it blown open but it was clean. She gave me some drops and told me to give it about 2 weeks before getting it wet again. Oh wells...

Well I got to thank the big man above for still being here tonight. We were on my cousins wakesetter today when a storm came out of nowhere so we did the dog to the boatg ramp. We were circling around waiting to load the boat when the hair on the back of my neck stood up and then BOOOOOOOOOM and a blinding flash of light. lightning hit the tower of the boat. I was maybe two foot from the tower. Nobody was hurt thank god. I did need a change of pants though. How we are here still I will never know.

I don't think my boat will ready till the end of the week and am taking it up to the St.Johns this weekend. Anyone who wants to come let me know so I can sort out a head count and what the weekend will cost. Obviously the more people who come the cheaper it will be. Ted is looking into renting a house right on the river and I will have my boat with the fly high kit installed ready to test it out and ride till my arms fall off.

Matt - I am still waiting to hear back from the guy who is installing the fly high kit. I don't think we are going to do the st. johns this weekend but hopefully my boat will be ready by today or Saturday and we can get some riding in this weekend. I will call you when I know the status of the boat.

Just got word. After paying for the parts and being told they would be ordered last friday and in by wednesday at the latest (and that boat should be ready by the weekend) I have just recieved a text saying the parts have not even come in yet. I am extremely heated. There is nothing I hate more than being fed a line of BS.
Not only that but this is the first time I have used this guy so you would think he would want a returning customer which will not be the case.
