    I'm pretty sure I can make it! Do you go for just the day or do you stay the night?

    I usually go the night before so I can catch the early morning good air. That would be good to meet you.

    Where do you stay? What is the nearest town? It takes me about 45 minutes to get to the 78. How far is it to Senator's from there?

    Take I-8 to Winterhaven. Go North on S 24 about 20 miles go left on the Senator's Wash road. I use a mattress and a sleeping bag and sleep in the back of the truck. Yuma is about 25 miles away if you want to get a room.

    Spud,
    I agree I have worked too hard to let a little setback get me down. I will hook up with you tomorrow and take you up on that gracious offer. I will make it right with you. I should have excepted the first time you offered. I want to be on the water. I need to get some time on this ski and start dialing it in. I have enough garage ornaments.

    Thanks my Friend
