Water Skiing?

Pretty quiet here since spring, doesn't anyone water ski? I used to, back in the day.

I never have, for some reason neither I nor anyone of my acquaintance was ever able to paddle fast enough to make it work.

Me neither. Try banjo music or hire cartoon characters.

How come there aren't any trip reports? This past week, the conditions were excellent for downhill water skiing--motorless, quiet, no polluting discharges or vapors, etc.

I play the banjo and I have never been able to run or paddle away from myself fast enough to escape so I have given up. Cartoon characters might work, though.

My neighbor does..one ski..slalom. I don't . I am too old to kiss concrete water. She is not. She is 76. But knows what she is doing. I know how to do an instafaceplant.

I miss waterskiing .. but it takes a driver/spotter and that's tough to come by most of the time. I also like the air chair/sky ski !
