Started the day with some light rain that was over by noon.  Been mostly cloudy the rest of the day but just now starting to clear a bit.  Tomorrow will be clear with some cool temps in the morning about 52 and highs expected in the mid 70s.  More rain expected by Thursday.

Went down and squared away the lease on the new storage lot and they provided a free month rent for having to have us move so soon to the new place.  Plan on messing with the boat tomorrow and want to run it on muffs tomorrow just to see if there are any obvious problems.  We may even go dunk it in the river for a short ride if the weather is good.  Tides this week are very lite so that won't be a problem.  I want to take the boat to the new storage lot before the Halloween weekend.  The new lot is well lit good video security and good fences.  I think this new spot will be better.  It is not yet finished with the site numbers etc but should be by next week.  Until then we are to just park in a line along one fence line.  I guess that is ok for now.  At lease we now have gate codes for entry and exit and thats good.

Had to go to Walmart to pick up the Mrs. prescriptions for the month and a couple other items as well.  She wants me to make a peanut butter pie so I needed a couple things.  Tonights supper is Lasagna and a salad.  Mrs wants a glass of sweet tea with her meal. 

While the wife was at therapy this morning I did get the laundry done and then had to clean the cats litter box and then just to make my day complete round up all the trash and get it ready for pick up tomorrow.  I did not mind doing all this stuff today because the need to do it did not come as an order from She who shall be obeyed.  Somehow that makes it a lot easier LOL

I don't remember when we serviced those last. But do me a favor, pull the spool out and wipe it off with a clean lint free rag. If you have the patients, take a tooth pick and wrap a little bit of cotton around it and run it through the pinion gear bore (where the spool slides into the reel). That should free the reel up quite a bit.

When it comes to spool braking, older reels do need to have the spool tension knob adjusted some. If you are getting a lot of back lashes, then you might need to tighten it a quarter turn. If you're not getting the casting distance you want, then back it out a turn.
On that last note about the spool tension knob would replacing the washers there help with something like this?

With all that run off, do you expect a bunch of debris that can be a navigation problem?

Time to knock out the Ibass Gold and make Dale get back out there :-*
am trying... but odds are long.  do have sat/sun and will put in long hours (hearing this Dale?)... 

getting beat is no big deal...  coming in second, if that's the way it play out, to Dale?  I'll just smile on the outside... but I'm already thinking about where I could have done better, what I need to build on for next year.

now, as for THIS year?  trying to get out Thursday ahead of the front... see if I can take advantage of those tiny windows where the big girls are on the prowl...

not quitting.  not mailing it in... giving Dale all I have to give until the fat lady sings.  goes for you too mike...  I see those big girls and know that I sure as heck ought to be able to keep up with this being Chickamauga...  frankly, have let this lake down.

Oroville has now risen 23 feet since Saturday morning.  Camp Far West is up 31 feet.  We will be back on concrete ramps pretty soon.  Woo Hoo!
