You should never wakeboard faster than about 25mph. Otherwise there is no wake much. Most pros run about 20 or 21.

You lose control of the board as well.

I may need a little help lifting/carrying heavy things from time to time this weekend because I'm a ***** I broke a rib in my upper chest 3 weeks ago changing coilovers on the front of my truck and I keep re-injuring it by lifting or moving incorrectly.

I can help. I'm a young fella still.

I do work at Mazmart. Not promoting but if anyone needs any last minute stuff let me know and I'll do my best to bring what I can down.

I'm really excited to see the mk turbo kit as I was interested in it last year when I caught wind of it.

Also what can I do as my part in bringing to share? I can bring some carne asada or anything else we may need. I live 25 mins northeast of Atlanta so I'm close.

Please bring anything you would like to contribute in the way of foods. I haven't purchased anything yet. I was waiting to see how many people we were expecting. Meat and supplies to make side dishes are certainly welcome. I'll be picking up chips and salsa and eggs, coffee, bacon, bread, burgers, dogs, and buns, etc.

I am bringing pancake mix and bacon for breakfasts. I also don't think I am going to get out of work early. So expected arrival will probably be between 7-9pm.

Whenever you get there. We aren't going anywhere. I'll hold your room since I know you are bringing your lady.

I just got home. About to finish packing and load up my car then head out. Should be an interesting journey. The car has made it 25 miles so far, that means it can do 250 right?

GPS and Google maps will tell you 205 Cherokee Dr is way up the street from where it actually is. Just watch the house numbers and you'll be fine.
