|Our first boat outing in 2007

In March 2007, my wife and I made the decision to buy a boat. We were so excited to have it, we immediately took it to Crab Orchard Lake and bundled up in jackets and sweatshirts, just to test drive it. The boat is nothing fancy, a seven passenger Stingray. We bought it in part because we live in southern Illinois and there are several beautiful and scenic lakes within a 45 minute drive of our home. My wife grew up spending much of her summers at the Lake of the Ozarks and has plenty of experience boating. I, despite being an Eagle Scout, do not enjoy the water so much.

The last two years, that's all changed and we've been out. But it's now mid-July and the first real time we've had the boat out was over the weekend to resume our annual trip to Kentucky Lake. Five years have passed since our last river trip, so our getaway was long overdue. I mentioned I'm not much for the water, but these trips have made it more fun for me.
