Glad your trip went well.
A sea anchor (Parachute) or even a bucket works to slow the boat down too.
We camped at Arbuckle Flat a month ago and had a good time
I hadn't stepped on a wakeboard since I broke my leg throwing a tantrum, many years ago. Riding came right back, like I never stopped riding. Not that I was throwing any inverts though, and especially not behind a SIB.
Adeline popped right out of the water and started wakeboarding her first try.
Bully Hill Mine. Pretty cool to visit, but keep in mind it is a toxic waste area.
Pit Arm of Shasta lake. Hence all the trees. This was pretty far up river, but still a long way from where the rapids started.
Headed home...the boat was packed pretty full of camping gear, and bodies.
I rigged a pulley system and we put our food high up in a tree, including the cooler. Good thing as early one morning my friend took the boat fishing, and when he returned there were bear prints on the shore. We saw tons of wildlife, and enjoyed a short weekend swimming and hiking around the lake.
