Interesting article but that definitely leaves me out. The way my prop seems to find every submerged object I would probably end up whacking a sub. 😁
The article says most of the tests are done late at night when there are no boats on the water, and I don’t think you can can get near the main test area. And the lake is 1000 feet deep.

Our family had a reunion there about 9 years ago, lake was awesome. There are a ton of things to do and if you can live with a rental boat they are available. Our family booked a majority of this place and it was a blast.

More details yet Tank?
From OSO...Sounds like it's gonna be pretty legit event.

Fun Run update
We have all the stops on board and are currently working on permits for the Friday night meet and greet dinner at City Beach. We are also nailing down the registration price and all the stuff that goes in the registration bags. We are getting some sponsors coming in if anyone has an interest in sponsoring let me know so I can get you on the shirts and flyers.

More info on the run that is turning into an official / unofficial poker run. From OSO thread.

"met this morning at our shop in liberty lake. We are moving forward with the run pretty aggressively. The plan is to do a show n shine in sandpoint at city beach on friday afternoon. Saturday will be the run. It will not be a true poker run as they are illegal in Idaho. What we are planning on is to still distribute cards at every stop. There will be prizes for the top three hands, a best dressed crew prize and a furthest distance traveled prize. We will have a dinner and awards party saturday night at Dover Bay resort. Hoewacker is working on sponshorships from several of our local vendors and businesses. The interest is definetly there! We are aiming for an official announcement around April 1st. We are working on getting the proper permits and such right now. Lots of details to work out but we are getting there! It will be a blast!"

I just got back from there and everything is open. There are a few businesses that still have mask signs posted, I didn't wear one anywhere and was never asked to.
I would say that Pocatello is close to halfway and hotels with trailer parking is only ok at a few places. Idaho Falls is a cluster fuck to get around in and hotels with trailer parking seem far and few between, actually didn't see any. Dillon is a stretch for a one day drive but the hotels look trucker friendly so trailer parking looked better. IMHO I would plan going solo instead of in a group.

Wish I would have known about this. :( I've often wondered why the big boats don't come up here to have an event.

For some reason my videos are not working. There were five cats running to BayView about 40 miles down the lake. It was awesome.
