Ninety percent of our camping is done at one of two lakes -- 15-miles apart -- about 60 miles from home. I keep the PuP and ski boat at the same storage facility half-way between both lakes. We usually head out after work on the weekends. We stop and pick up the PuP, get it all set up and run back for the boat the next morning.
Also have a 14-foot 1972 Starcraft with a 1957 Evinrude Golden Anniversary 10-hp outboard that I keep closer to home.
I hear ya KC. Ain't hardly right without. I had a 14ft 79 Starcraft seafairer.......let it go a few yrs back had it for 20..........had 87 25 Merc on it.,,,,,,,,,,kids had a ball with it. Once in a while they let me fish with it..
This thread needs updating! In the process of adding a rear hitch to the Baja so that I can take my dirt bikes AND my 1969 Silverline DeVille to the lake in the same trip! Still rocking the original 100hp Merc ToP outboard and has enough hooch to pull my fat azz out of the water or give my boys a "spirited adventure" on the tubes.
