How long does it take after desert storm for the majority of people to leave? Most head home on Sunday or does it drag through the week?

Most leave on Sunday. If your able to leave on Monday and avoid the traffic your money ahead. The Sunday traffic is probably not going to be as bad as most years as Coachella/Stage Coach has been cancelled by Furor Newsome.

X2 on Monday. Been to a previous one where the shootout was moved to Sunday because of Saturday wind. Did anyone make it thru the Storm update this week? Sorry but the promoters voice wears on you:oops:

Always seemed like the big hardware pulls off the water and heads home after the shoot-out (or when it’s called off). If the Super Cat Fest runs a shootout I wonder how long everyone will hang out.

With Super Cat fest the weekend prior the traffic patterns might be a little different than usual. Throw Covid in the mix and who knows.

We head home Monday sometime. To hung over from the after party to drive home on Sunday. Once home it generally takes me the week to recover.

That is a common misconception.. out of all the shoot outs they have had I think only one or two have been cancelled. The rest did go off on Sunday if they were post phoned because of weather.

Super Cat doesnt have a shootout, or a Poker run if I recall correctly last time I talked to Todd the promoter, is mainly a bunch of on water meet ups.

Noone leaves the lake anymore. They just work remote and stay in town. It never died down last year. I dont see it being any different this go around either.

True story. Every weekend up until October looked like a holiday weekend and weekdays looked like a standard weekend. Crazy.

The wind usually stops blowing on Sunday and Monday is a great boating day. (If I had a boat)

This looks like a good place to add this, since you all are talking drinking and hangovers. This is a product my Niece developed and seems to be the hot trick to rehydrate, give it a try!

Its really good on the drive train to be in and out of gear 100 times as you navigate the channel!! 😂

On a real note, I'd love to see you come down for Super Cat or DS! I know you hate the crowds but it would be awesome to see you there!

x2 With the shit shows everywhere, it is really stopping me from buying a new boat. Why bother if it is a pain in the ass to drop it in the water?

So stay out of channel, it always sucks. Launch early get your speed runs in, and leave lake around 330 before the evening rush.

Just prefer not being there on weekends. So much easier.:p
We're rolling in the 11th and will leave Sunday, the 25th or Monday if I can keep my spot at the Islander for one additional day. See you there?
