LOL. I really want it but I need to be financially responsible, so I promised Andrea we would wait and see how the first year of production goes and see where we are financially before we even consider it. NO fun, but wise!

The Riverrat crew will be in Lincoln Log #4 Thursday through Monday.

I'm super happy seeing this thread start after spending 16 hours in my plow truck, and having to hop back in it in a few hours. Can't wait to see everyone!


Also, let me know when you're signing the papers for the 27 footer Neil, I might be ready to take that 242 off your hands:p

With all the injuries last year, should we have some sort of "pre celebration blessing" before things really kick off? :p

If you call Lithia Resort and tell them you're with the Yamaha group they'll know exactly who you're talking about. If you want a slip you'll need to call Lithia Springs Marina. Info in Neil's first post. I hope to see you there!

Once lodging is confirmed, post back here and @OperationROL will add you to the first post. Then about a month out, he will send an email with info about buying shirts and a registration form for phone numbers and boat reg details. He has to file for a raftup permit and needs all the tag numbers for the boats.

It’s a great group. A little daunting the first time, but we’ll try let you know what to expect to help ease any concerns the mrs may have about meeting your “Internet friends”.

Neil,

Unless plans change, unfortunately we will not be able to attend this year. I appreciate the welcome that my family received last year, it is definitely something we will do again but I have an opportunity I cannot pass up.

Everyone be safe and enjoy themselves!

Scott
