    First Toss at 60+MPH

    Here goes:

    Headed out yesterday to Caesar Creek State Park North of Cincinnati with Family. Let my Brother in Law poke around for a few, took my nephew for a ride some easy riding and so forth.

    Broke out the GPS figured out how to get the 'Max Speed' indicator up while I was going through the no-wake zone looking for some SMOOTHER water!

    As soon as I broke the NW zone, it was smooth (So any normal person would have figured that was because of the NO WAKE Zone exit), so I hammered it!

    I was getting along pretty good when out of the blue a few rollers caught me at an angle and WHAM, I High Sided off the right side and cartwheeled! Now the best part here is an hour earlier I was telling my brother in law that he should make sure he looks at the water out ahead of him not just right in front when he is 'getting on it'


    So anyway, after thinking that I seriously left a testicle in the lake and a long swim to the ski with only one Keen Sandal and no Bomber glasses, I counted my blessings.......I did find the sandal and the glasses some ways away!

    GPS said MAX SPEED of 63.9 MPH and the Velcro EXTREME is good stuff BTW! So I now can say with all certainty that getting tossed at 60+ is NO FUN! I am bruised and surprised my right leg is in tact but other than that all is well. You gents that go overboard at 70 and 80+ are way lucky to survive, now I see what all the fuss is about.....

    OH ALSO REGARDING THE INABILITY TO EDIT THE TITLE, I HOPE THAT IS MY LAST TOSS AT ANYTHING OVER 20 MPH!!!!!
    Cheers,
    Joe
