    Bummer for that dude!


    A couple on our street just got back from Burt Lake. They took their boat up there. She said our lake feels like a swamp after being up there!

    The boat was in their driveway and they were unloading yesterday evening as we walked by. So I would assume they were up there this past week. It was a ski/wake boat. Cream and red in color with a red tower and terribly tuned speakers.

    Quick question for you Michigan guys........was just looking at the map of Lake Michigan and found Petoskey. How long would it take to cross the lake west and go towards Wisconsin/Green Bay?!? Just curious......
