    I got to hang W/ @brooks & @ColeGiacopuzzi at a Radar Nation event and then I went over to SkiWest and knocked out my first 38 of the year.

    Had a little break in the wind Saturday and got a couple good sets in before the rains came w/ @GWaterski . Today watched some skiing at the Swiss Spring Classic before the rains. On top of 3 days skiing last was a good week/weekend of skiing.

    Happy Birthday @gwaterski and @TEL

    First set in NH yesterday. Hard to really call it a set I guess. Up the lake and back in the drysuit. Still glorious though and fantastic to be on the water again.
    Also I am pathetically sore today, so sad :D

    I have to say EVERY weekend is a great weekend at Hilltop. Great mental health Sat &/or Sun after a full work week.

    @Bill22, you probably met my ski buddy @Rook while you were at Seth’s. He spends a month driving and helping out down there. He did the Trophy Lakes tournament also.

    We had great weather and skiing this weekend in Michigan. Everybody seemed to be getting into the groove.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    We swerved with Nautique at the outstanding Lakes of Katy with the lovely and gracious Whitney. What a sweetheart she be. Thanks CC and HO for a really nice event and thanks to Kelvin and Lisa for their hospitality.

    Flew from CO to Orlando on Thursday. It was really nice to ski in warm water. Skied well at the Travers Grand Prix. My team even won!

    I put my course in this weekend for the first time this year. Our ice out was April 19th. Air temp was 48 and water temp was 51. Things are looking up. I actually ran 5 full passes with setting down on each end of the course and didn't die :smile:

    I wimped out.

    Saturday night at dinner, the arm twisting started. I knew it was going to be cold and had a motorcycle trip scheduled in the AM, so that was my official excuse. One of the guys went and the sound of his Inboard at 8am on the still, glass water was like Beethoven's 5th in the still, cool MI air.

    I did drive my buddy later in the afternoon for his first set, but resigned that I like to do my first pull behind my own boat, which for now is still in storage.

    Plans are to raise our course this weekend, and hopefully our full crew of seven will be all smiles, cracking brews and enjoying face plants. :)

    Weekends are like pizza, never had a bad one, but some are better than others.
  • keithh2oskierkeithh2oskier Posts: 575 Crazy Baller
    I feel around 1 ball on my opening pass 2x (after I ran it 2x).

    Just one of those WTF are you doing moments. Still had fun.

    Gorgeous weekend in the PACNW; logged 10 more passes on Sunday in 75/65 air/water temps. It was like a second date - 2nd sesh on a new ski; just sniffing first base, yet flirtatious with plenty of upside! 🤣

    Had a break in the weather in MA on Saturday and finally got my boat in, got a ski run in.
    Was and still am sore as hell. Felt great to be out on the lake though.

    @lhoover I took my 7 yr old to the Lakes of Katy too for the Nautique Swerve event. We drove in from New Braunfels on Saturday. My kid had an absolute blast and Whitney was so kind and patient with her. I hadn't been in a new Nautique before then. Interesting boat, it needs to grow on me. Overall it was an awesome time at a great ski community. Big thanks to the Kelm family for hosting and to Whitney for her enthusiasm and coaching! It was a great weekend for us!
