Our group would even set up our own slalom course, and practice for hours, as my crock pot was doing it's thing back at camp. I wish I had you with us CG, as I never failed teaching both kids and adults how to water ski.
I never was tempted to snow ski from fear of falling. Besides, I like water a lot more than snow.

First time waterskiing, I got up, then went down. I didn't realize that I was supposed to drop the rope, and kept yelling for my dad to stop the boat in between breaths and mouthfuls of water. I also almost lost the bottom of my swimsuit another time. The ski belt was too big, and kept pushing it south.

My attempts at snow skiing were also pathetic. I fell, and stabbed myself in the chest with my ski pole. Bent it in half.

Bad Daddy! Yep, the first thing you tell a student is to drop the rope if you fall, and put your arm thumbs up to signal you're ok. I actually lost the bottom of my suit to my knees once. Boy did I let go of that rope fast. That's when I started wearing a one piece suit or a summer wet suit.

After that nearly happening to me once as well, it was one piece suits from then on! For some reason I really took to water skiing easily, and after a couple of times on doubles and getting the hang of it, found singles SO much easier and lots more fun. Snow skiing was another story - I went with my friends one time up to Mammoth because they kept telling me if I could water ski, I could snow ski. I didn't find that to be true. Even in a class on the bunny slope, I was a total klutz. But like Kay, I like water more than snow.

As far as cooking, I don't remember having outlets near the lakes to plug in a crock pot - maybe up at the Colorado River, but not locally. That would have been nice. We usually used a Coleman propane stove, a hibachi, or one of the bbq grills at camp. Still good eats, though!

Oh yeah, one piece only!

I also had a male friend take off skiing from the dock, but his shorts caught on it. We got to see the moon that day...

My dad would tell me to drop a ski and do slalom. I never got that good, though. A lot of friends were world-class water skiers.

I too prefer water to snow.

Sounds like you had some entertaining times out on the lakes, Dawg!
