How is the hotel now that they are redoing it, I parket the dual in their back lot yesterday when I went down to the channel and saw the mounds of old matresses they were throwing away

Funny I though the same to myself when I drove by this morning, that and noticed how many cars were there again

Lake Mojave, Nice pictures! any chance your staying in Laughlin? just curious what life is like there these days...one of our old haunts.
Yes we're in Laughlin. We have a home here we stay at. Driving by the casinos seem to be a doing ok. Parking lots not as full as they use to be.

It wasn’t that bad. I know it’s not the best place but it’s all I could book last minute. It did the job lol. It was 120 for the night can’t beat that it has running water and AC and a new Smart tv so I could put on Netflix for the kids. My wife prefers nautical but they came thru for me and the front desk was very friendly and helpful. There were some interesting characters but that’s what u get when the rooms are that cheap 😂

Not to distract from all these fun weekend pics being contributed, but due to my wife's 22 year old Yam XL1200 finally giving it's last cough (Or cough worth curing), we'll be in the market to replace both of ours.
How do you like those FX HO's ? Seemed like a great package that does a lot of things really good, without giving up to many compromises. Since we've gotten a couple of years older while enjoying our hopped up 2 strokes, we're all about comfort, but in a sporty way. I've read those FX handle waves fine, but you get wet in the process. Not always bad, but not always desirable either.
We use our PWC far more than our boat, and although the wife suggested maybe forgoing skis and selling the Cole for a pontoon boat, sounds like a lot of work and I'm going to miss being right on the water --- to me, giving into age and succumbing to a pontoon boat is equivalent to hiring out my yard work and watching daytime TV.

Just curious your thoughts on how the FX ride and perform -- thanks
The ride is nice. You're not getting hammered while going in the rough waters, the power for what we do is great. You do get some splash, but like you said not always bad. The power is good, but like anything else at times playing around we would like more. The wife likes to just cruise and take it easy so that's what we usually do.

Got off the water around 10:30 last night.. the channel was still packed! Never have I seen more illegal or shitty light setups in my life.. cops didn’t seem to care about any of it though?

watching jet skis with people using a cell phone facing forward at 9:30 at night.. boats with glowing rub rails that had crazy led light patterns running..

boats with no nav lights and using flashlights.. lol. I was pretty impressed with some of the creativity.. I can’t believe more people weren’t getting rolled for any of it that I saw..

Some of the light shows that were moored in the channel were extremely impressive wish I coulda got some pics but I was driving.. 🤨

Here’s some pics from our day.. I love these fluzzles. I bought four of them for the kids.

Played a little golf Friday morning.
Drove around and looked at lots and houses we can't afford, then back to the pool for the afternoon.
Went for a walk down in the channel Saturday evening, cops were busy with all the boats running without lights, wtf?
Walked the channel this morning and I was surprised it wasn't full at 0900.
Trying to decide on dinner tonight and then maybe head to the flying x.

Ninth hole up at the course in Big Bear. This bear was chilling on the fairway. He decided to let us play through.
I was having a drink with a couple of guys at Blondie's in arrowbear last week, one of them said that the green fees were pretty steep there lately. What's the scenario?

@RiverDave is spot on. 2nd straight weekend where anything goes. Glad i didn’t put the boat in the water today. Made for some great people watching but absolutely nuts on the water.

Thanks, appreciate an owner's perspective. 👍
Do over, would you have gotten one or both with the SVHO ? I keep going back and forth, then figure, screw it, I'll get mine in SVHO and hers in HO which she'd be perfectly happy with. This of course assuming I could find either in the current whacked out market.

I really miss Big Bear. Had a place up there for years and even had our motor home on the water for a couple summers.
Actually went to Idaho City today and it reminded me a lot of a mix of BB and Duck Creek Village. Half the parking lot full of quads, dual sports, SXS and dust covers trucks. We sat outside of Trudys and had lunch and a few beers.

I wouldn't change it and would get these again. They really are a great ski. We got lucky when we got them, it was just before things went crazy.

Apparently I got shit hammered last night and invited about 100 people at our campgrounds to come have birthday cake. Problem is I only have one fucking cake, I guess I gave some away to some kids leaving last night already??? Then I sprinkled dick's on it and it's smashed from the ride home. More pics coming people are starting to roll in all excited for cake LoL

Ohhh and my horny fucking 15 year old and his 5 fuktard buddies are down at the river swimming and somehow managed to actually talk to some girls and hangout. I know damn well they aren't rolling this way anytime soon so the birthday boy is MIA
