So Friday Aug 9th I decided to run The Lake. Left Wahweap about 7 am. 5.3 gallons at The Rope. Short detour for a hike in Long Canyon. (see photos). 8.3 gallons at Halls. Arrived at a launch ramp by Hite not sure what you northern guys call this. 14.3 gallons back at Halls. 9 gallons at The Rope ( I went faster on way back). Wahweap by 5:30. Was windy most of the time only a few boils. Caught a few by The Horn. Great day. I think about 270 miles. I had to see how the new Fish Pro would do. It was a great ride. 20190809_103811.jpg20190809_104034.jpg20190809_105342.jpg20190809_141802.jpg20190809_141757.jpg

Nice photos! How long did it take you to go from Halls to Wahweap? What was your average speed going up and back? I have 2 Kawasaki 300x skis and have been wanting to do this. I'd have to bring a few jugs of premium fuel with me though since DR does not have premium.

I think it only took me about 2 1/2 hours. (I did stop at Music Temple to get out of the wind for a few minutes). I start off with premium, the regular fuel at The Rope only effects me a little bit. I also did not get Premium at Halls. I can only do 50 with the Fish Pro, however I probably averaged 42.

I am putting together a winter solstice run on December 21st this year going from Wahweap to Hite and back on same day. (last year I only went to Bullfrog and back) You should join me...

Torco makes a octane boost that will bring 87 to 96. Good stuff small can big punch.

That sounds incredible! I just might take you up on that! Thanks for the invite.(y) My skis are supercharged so, unfortunately, they must use premium at all times. Just need to figure out a system on the back deck for two 6 gallon jugs.

Dang! In one day? I like that. Took me three days in my lil Zodiac. :-/
Do you still have one of the Hondas for sale, Reed? If so, how about a trailer?
