Default Jet skis almost ready for use!

Well, I got two of my jet skis runnin', and the other two are gettin dropped off for service today... They've been gathering dust for a few years and I decided it's time to use em or lose em..... (Lisa reminded me that in the time we've known each other, she's only seen water on em once. And that was when I washed em)....

Once they're all ready to go I'm gonna take em out and ride em' to see if they need need any adjustments... After that, it's off to re-cover the seats! (I'll be callin you about your guy, Jb)

I used to ride em a lot, but when I started wakeboardin I only used em on a few trips where I spent weekends on the lake. I need to get a clone to handle some of these toys............. I just don't know if the world could handle twice the coolness of me

I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.

Two down and tooo-ta go!

Erin and I took two of the jetskis out for a checkout run, and no prollems!!! It's prolly been about 7 years since they've been in the drink, so I wasn't sure if it was gonna be a one way drive, followed by a one way swim back!

It was also Erins first time out as a driver... She did really well, and quickly decided she liked the faster one better... we only had enough gas to check them out, so we wrapped it up after about 30 minutes.

Looks like early next week we'll be takin' the other two out, but this time we'll have enough fuel to stay out and play a little.. Fingers crossed there'll be no problems!

Don't worry, mommie dearest!-- Almost ready to cart you out to the lake......As soon as i'm sure you won't have to swim em' back with a tow strap in your teeth

I have a couple of wave runners and I'm putting one in the shop tomorrow. Maybe Naciemento, Pine Flats or Shaver ? Don't know about the camping. Haven't camped on a lake in a long time. Where would be good for camping ? BV has some good sites too.

Well..... 3 outta 4 aint bad

I have one jetski that dies when I try to gas it, but as it warms up, get better and better.. Inconvenient for me for the first few minutes, but disastrous for the inexperienced rider... My buddy had the same issue with his, but he rebuilt his carbs and the problem disappeared... Guess I'm Doin' the carbs

The bottom line is all four are lake ready iffin I'm riding the stumbler, and 3 of them are runnin smooth as silk!

Is is Lakeview ? I don't see Lake Ridge ?

Do they have camping with direct access to the lake for day use ? Or do you have to set up a day use area somewhere else?
