We had 43 degrees here on Saturday and couldn't find time to break
out the swimming gear due to our 9 year olds BD party/sleep over,
those girls stayed up way past my bedtime.
We did however find time this 30-degree Sunday afternoon to check
fluids and fire Her up.
After warming up we headed to the Anchor Inn on the Rock River in
Beautiful Downtown Newville.
We checked the bilge plug more than twice and checked our door locks
a few times just to be sure we hadn't forgotten anything, it's been a
long time since we had her out.
I've never gone in so slow, we inched her in and that's all it took
to bring those "Only an Amphicar person knows this feeling smile"
smiles across our faces.
It felt great, we did a trip under the bridges and waved to the
traffic on I-90, cars were also slowing down on the Hwy 59 Bridge to
see what they could see. We came out and went back in 3 of 4 more
times just for the fun of it.
We did have a good first swim of the year.
No bilge.
