we frequently have ranting threads of non-positive things that happen to our members.. So in all fairness, here is a thread to say folks are also often AWESOME.
It's an almost 4 hour drive to Tiago and even longer back with late afternoon traffic but The Boss and I love going there as it's quiet and beautiful. To make it better, Kev and his family joined us too. What made it really special is what happened when we got there.
Tiago only has one place to really access the water and there was a couple that had set up camp right by it. They also had a small boat that was in the only channel to launch from as Lily Pads own the lake, but at least the narrow road\path to the lake was clear and I back my truck down. As The Boss and I unload our tubes the gentleman and I do indeed mean gentleman walks down and starts pulling his boat out of the way. I tell him not to worry as the tubes will easily go around it. But he apologized for it being there and tugged it over. So shortly after we launch the tubes and float about 3 to 3.5 hours and have a wonderful time. But we have to get out because of the drive home. As we're loading the truck the man comes over again and asks how we did and what we were using.. you know, normal stuff and we had some nice small talk. After that Steph, Kev and I finish loading all our gear. As I climb in the truck, I notice the gentleman and his lady were launching their boat. Maybe it was just the ambiance of the day or the beauty of the lake.. but with the timing, it really seemed like this very nice couple, literally stayed off the lake while we fished. Kind of like giving us our space if you will
