You will love it the group is a riot and grows every time we have it. My favorite of all the Finger Lakes. Multiple bar/restaurants on the lake with the town of Hammondsport at the South end and Penn Yan on the North end.
Due you plan to camp (Keuka State Park)r rent a cottage or B&B?

Born and bred a camper, Tent, air mattress and a cooler! One of my favorite times was camping at the LOTO, Tent set up on a grassy noel with the boat anchored at the foot of said noel. The sun starting to set to the west, and me, I was chasing that last slice of baloney around the cooler to make my last "wish" sandwich. Thinking all the while" It don't get better then this" Then of course I got cleaned up headed out to the Bars

Quick Finish to this Story, Had a very attractive woman ask me to dance, Sure. Only problem it wasn't with her, it was with her much older and less attractive friend So I'm dancing with the old bat, she asks if I'm in a condo or hotel, Naturally I tell her I'm in a beautiful one bedroom condo overlooking the water with available slippage. She' gets excited, all a twitter and I'm thinking "Hey I'm 800 miles from home" but as the night ages she figures out that I'm at the state park, She literally turned her nose up and said "EW your a camper, turned and walked away, I'm like "look you old _____ your the one that approached me to dance, I was done with my charity work for the evening! Good Times they can't take!

What time is everyone getting on the water?? We are all set for the 2nd right? My boat is ready to go (i think...) but with the weather and a couple other things going on i believe that Saturday will be my first ride of the season, same goes for my buddy with his Scarab! We figure if either of us has issues the other one can tow us back (after last season i have very little faith in my boat right now...). Anyway, just wondering about a timeline and what the plans are for the day, looking forward to making noise and pissing off the all the "owners" of the lake!!
