what is funny about this attempt is that we probably learned more about diving (another condition for when to bail on a dive even though it hasn't gotten started yet) than we would have on the 10-billionth+1 dive at cove2, but this isn't loggable as a dive...

Yes Lamont hitting the lake right now is a bad idea, esp with the hot weather and all the waterskiiing, Pwc sit downs, and just sun worshippers...I drove over both bridges, I-5 and 90... lots of boats, and lots of good times out on our lakes... WINTER RULES.......!!!!!!

this park is on the eastside just north of 520.

there is milfoil all over the place now. it is only cut back once you get out far enough that the boat props have cut it back. however, now you are still on the surface and have lots of boat props whizzing around you. bad scene. bagged it. never even got the wing deflated.

maybe in the wintertime, when there's less boat traffic and no milfoil, definitely not good for the summertime.
