    Going riding tomorrow

    It looks like the temps should be in the upper 50's tomorrow, so I'm getting the skis out for a ride on the Mississippi River at La Crosse, WI. Water temp is probably still less than 40 degrees, so it will hopefully be a dry ride for me. Heck, there's still a foot of ice on most of the lakes around here and it's snowing outside right now!!! I've got the fever to get out on the water. Wish me luck!

    Have fun, I was down in praire du chein today and the water temp is still pretty cold. Still a couple people fishing in the main channel in boats. I will probably go out in the next couple weeks. We just got rain around here.

    My buddy works in La Crosse and said the boat landing was filled with trucks and empty trailers this morning. I doubt there were any empty PWC trailers though! I need to get myself a wetsuit for these cold water rides. We ended up getting about an inch of snow tonight. It's already melting and should be gone by tomorrow late morning.

    Yeah, my wife and I took the skis out. We ended up going to a spot in Eau Claire, WI since it's a little closer for us. Skis ran great and started up immediately. A guy fishing said the water was 43 degrees, but it wasn't too bad. I didn't get too crazy or I probably would have gotten cold real quick. It was a good time, and I'll be out several more times before the ride at Prairie Du Chien on May 1st.
