    Lake Amistad Ride

    I am thinking about setting up a ride in the late spring/early summer to Lake Amistad near Del Rio. I haven't been there since I was a kid but I think it would be an awesome place to go ride. Huge lake with lots of flat smooth water and tons of riding. Thinking about late April/early May timeframe, before Mud Bug. Anyone interested?

    Different lake, but Amistad is still a border lake.

    Totally different lake! There have been no incidents like this at Amistad. Also, this lake is HUGE, unlike Falcon, and the border is clearly marked with buoys. You will have zero problems as long as you stay on the US side. There are apparently awesome flat water coves everywhere. Also, if you are still concerned you can carry a handgun on your ski at this lake with a Texas CHL! This is a FEDERAL park and is highly regulated. Come ride with us guys!

    Really? NOBODY wants to go ride on this huge, clear water lake? Enforcer and I are going for sure, we just want some buddies to come along to make it more fun!

    We have had a couple people showing interest in the ride. Right now we are tentatively looking at arriving on the morning of Friday, April 26, and leaving on Sunday, April 28. There is a ton of beautiful water to ride and I expect a lot of that riding to be on the upper Devils River section of the lake, far away from the border in case anyone is worried about that. Here are some pics of the riding are!

    Jarrett I just cleared my PM box so you can PM me now! I was reading online that it is a very popular place to dive as well.
