    Cumberland Cordell Hull Dam

    Put in today at Hunters Point RTE 231 and rode to Cordell Hull Dam. It was a nice day out a little cool but that sun was worth 20 degrees....Water was like glass and not much debris.
    It gave me a chance to check a few things for colder weather riding. I also carried 2 extra fuel in 5 gal jugs that was different but worth it. The only thing today was "Mr Hoover aka NashVegas" jinxed me. Sent me a pic of the leaves getting caught in his grate.....Hell I stopped about 25 times today to wash leaves off the grate. I would be cruising and next thing you know Im losing speed. I would kill the engine at 10-15 mph and coast hoping that would work....but it wasnt really working. I would then turn around and go with current with reverse on and try going about 5 mph in reverse kill engine and pull the bucket up and it would wash right out. I would see a clump of leaves and chopped pieces float away.
    Fire it up and continue on till I lost speed again. Some places you just could not avoid the leaves then you would be fine for 5-8 miles ...still better than sitting at home on the couch.
    Quite few bass boats out but no ski's...lolClick image for larger version.

    Looks like it was a good ride. Hoping to change my grate and get back out there in the next week or so.

    Those shoes work out good for you?
