    46 mile ride to Golden Nugget & L'auberge Du Lac Casino & Resort

    Just got a 98 Seadoo GTX Ltd. a couple months ago and went through the fuel system to clean it all up. I live on a river in SW Louisiana so for the past 3wks, I have rode it for 30mins here and there staying close to my house to just make sure everything was good to go on it. This past weekend I decided to take it from my house all the way to the new Golden Nugget & L'Auberge Du Lac Casino & Resort. One way is 23 miles (mapped it out on google earth). Was running wide open throttle most of the way and there/back (46miles) I burned a little over 2/3 tank. Had no issues and it was about 63* out. Wore a jacket under my lifejacket and I was fine. Here's some pics.

    So far, I've done about 70-ish miles on my 08 and 2011 GTI with about 3 gallons left. That was with a combination of speeds, but never in sport mode.

    Looks familiar Marshrunner. We travel out to your next of the woods during the summer on our skis all the way from Galveston Texas. Here was our trip in 2013...

    Awesome vid! That is a longgg way. Not sure if it was your group or not but I live on the river where there is not much boat traffic and in the past 3years, I've seen on 2-3 occasions where 20+ PWC's pass by. It's not far off from where you were swinging off of the tree. I've been there many times.... here's a pic of me standing on the tree about to swing off.

    I just got a new ski btw but I'm still keeping the GTX. Went for a ride down to the Calcasieu today. Here's a video clip of it and it coincidently has the same song as one of yours on the vid lol.
