JetSki Junkies Port Charlotte Route: Just Enjoy The Ride
Today I was reminded of the simple bliss of the ride. Jetski Junkies member Travis Powers called an impromptu ride on the Peace River and both my wife and I were able to attend along with Travis’ fiancee Carli and Rich Decker.
The ride was simple in nature, about 60 miles or so round trip from fresh water to salt and back without hardly any real need for planning, spare fuel and as luck would have it, the need to carry lunch.
The ride took us southwest from Nocatee to Charlotte Harbor in Port Charlotte, FL. The river is mostly a 25mph zone that twists and turns from narrow to wide at ease, with some minor dead fall, debris and shallows to lookout for, mainly in the upper section as it narrows.
The water level was about nine inches below normal, some tidal influence in the lower part of the river below the local hotspot called Nav-A-Gators Bar & Grill, where we were able to stop for lunch and fuel as well.

"if you aren’t stepping back to simply ride, then you may have forgotten what it is that truly ignited your passion in the first place."
Well said...plain and simple.
