Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Imasaluki - how is your LA weather now? We are warm, but wet, here. Also, the composting toilet is awesome!! Thnx!

miatapaul - Dale Hollow is my favorite lake. It is just beautiful there, and waking up on that lake and being outside is magical.

Lou - isn't this weather awesome! We are about 10" below in our rainfall yet from last year, hopefully we'll get a couple of inches of rain. Supposed to rain, off and on, for the next 5 days.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

L.A. was great. 70 deg every day, windy, and sunny. Can't complain about the Ohio Valley weather at the moment! Give us a review of your AirHead after you use it for a few months.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

imasaluki - isn't our weather great today? The sun is shining, the patio door is open, and I am wearing flip-flops. My toes are a little cold, but I'm sucking it up!

I will review the c-head as the year progresses. My sil & bil have had theirs installed for quite some time now, and they still loves theirs. Hope we are as pleased!

Welcome back from La-La Land!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

New member from Central KY. Have completed some ASA courses with the folks at Lighthouse Landing in Western KY (Grand Rivers). Do not own a boat but hoping to in the next few years- need some more hours on the water. Would love the opportunity to join on some day trips around the state.

Hi Lou,

I am actually in Lexington, so roughly an hour. All of my experience is on a Colgate 26 but I am happy to learn and help out on any size boat. Without a lot of mid-20's guys sailing in KY, it is hard to find peers to learn with. I have checked out the Cave Run website and am interested in membership, but like most guys my age, want more online information... Can I send you a PM/email with my info to have membership info sent to me?--- Thanks Lou!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Welcome aboard, James! Maybe we'll see you up around Lighthouse Landing this summer. What a pretty marina. We hope to take our sailing courses up there, just can't commit right now due to a sick family member. I believe the deposit is non-refundable. So, that is putting us into a wait and see. Regardless, we'll putter around the lakes with others and still have fun.

Spring is almost here and we'll all be back out on the water in no time. Yay!!

Well I have to say, the instructor for the ASA courses at Lighthouse Landing (Chip) is outstanding. He and his wife are great folks and you will enjoy your time here if you do in fact get down through the Spring/Summer to take the classes. Otherwise, see you all out there!!
