We had a d.r.y winter and our lakes are at near record lows. Last year, however, we had near record high's. What a contrast.
This year, we had to launch the boat in the dirt. We've never done that before. Putting the boat into the lake was a breeze, but taking it out was another matter. Especially in Jimmy's front wheel drive volvo. But by day 2, we realized that all we had to do was put more weight on the front tires. So my BIL Steve, and I sat on the hood of the car, and Jimmy easily drove the boat out of the lake. I'm sure it was quite a sight for all the onlookers. Especially when Jimmy quickly stopped at the top of the makeshift ramp and I nearly fell off the hood in the front of the car.
