Where do you spend most of your time in Texas?

You need to resize the images you are trying to link in. Those are huge!!!

Resize them so that they are only big enough to fit in the text side of the posts and then use the following to link them in.
If you link in the pictures you have now, they are so big you can not see them.

of coures you link will have no spaces in them I had to put spaces so you could read it otherwise there would just be a red X.

HAHA, I know! I deleted those photos from Imageshack, but I canít seem to get rid of that HUGE box here!? How do I do that?

Jdsharp57Ö we hang out on Lake Worth. Iím on Eagle Mountain Lake, but itís like an ocean out there! There is always good water to ski on out at Worth regardless of the wind direction! Not too many peopleÖyet that hang out there so you can get some good skiing in even during weekends! Everyone knows everybody out there too. We also like to go to Tin-Top out on the Brazos! I love that place!

Both you guyz are in the DFW area you should check out dallaswakeboarding.com sometime. It's a good way to get more involved in the local wakeboarding community. They always post local area tournaments & events.

Yea, I have cruised around on their site once or twice! My old boat was listed there on the used boat lot! I would keep going back and looking at it (same one in the avatar). Now that it sold, there ainít no going back!!! XLV, here we come! My son has done that! He has been to some of the local area competitions to watch and learn. Heís quite the spectacle on our little lake! He has been telling me every night that heís getting into shape at the local gym so that he will be ready to go when we FINALLY get out boat! Iím not sure whoís more excitedÖme or him!? :!:

Icant wait just to break my boat in we live in Haslet Tx weve got 8 trips planed Lake Travis,Canyon Lake,Lake Belton,Broken Bow in OK,Lake Murry and will probly do evening trips to Eagle Mt or Grapevine. I'm just ready to get her out to get comfortable with everything . HURRY UP WARM WEATHER! :D

Your son is smart to be hittin the gym. I hit the gym myself every year before the season not for any competition really, but to help prevent injury.

Those are all some pretty cool lakes man! I tell you Lake Murry in OK is a beautiful lake and the water is really clear there...for a lake anyway. I don't know if you've been before, but the state park has cool cabins you can rent right next to the water for reasonable rates. If you ever plan on goin on a holiday weekend you better book it several months in advance though. My problem has always been getting my friends to commit that early. They all talk about how much fun it is, but no one wants to commit till the weekend before and by then it's too late.

Hey Hammer,

After you go to Eagle Mountain Lake, come out to Lake Worth and then make up your mind as to which one is best for skiingÖnow for partying, try Party Cove at Eagle Mountain Lake! My son and his cousinís jaw dropped flat to the floor when we putted in to the cove! I was watching them in the mirror, and they cracked me up! It was still early so everyone still had clothes on. I still have to maintain some decency around my son! Yes, we left before people started getting naked!!!!!!!

Membrain,That looks like 820 bridge going over Lake worth in the back ground.Water dont look that bad is there any sandbars around there?

03-08-2008, 11:14 AM
Thatís the place! There is some dredging going on that is being done in phases. There were a lot of stumps on the west end of Goat Island. A deep channel was marked thru the there, but they were doing a lot of dredging in that area last summer to widen all that out for boats to go thru safely. I donít know the status on that yet. There were sand bars on the east end across from the landing strip towards the dam on the north side of the lake next to the docks. They are marked though.
