There's a ton of us that head out at the Mc, also lots of really cool locals. Head north passed the power lines and you'll see a beach on the right side, that's So Cal island, there's usually a bunch of us there, or up a little further on the right is drop off and just passed that on the left is goose flats, those are the three main places to hang out.

In terms of hazards, there isn't much until you head north of Blythe, I'm sure someone will give you the tour though. Welcome aboard

yep he pretty much covered it. if you go south there is a lagoon they call hippie hole. but most of the MC crew will be on socal beach, or mob beach, depending on what group you are talking to. OR in goose flats. Keep looking off to your left once you past the power lines. you will see a small opening with a no wake buoy. that is the entrance to goose flats
When  you turn your boat on... does it return the favor?

derp, I said dropoff is on the right, it's on the left when you're headed up river.  :screwy:

What no wake buoy tony? that chit is long gone, be careful going in there. The toolies have grown in really thick and theres only enough room for one boat at a time to go in and out.

what the bouy is gone!!! that thing has been there for ever. LOL. i guess im not too up to date on the Blythe happenings since i sold my mcintyre trailer to mark.

I am a willow rat now. up in willow valley. I love it up there. just miss my McIntyre family and the McIntyre Mob. and Blythe has better beaches that are not all owned by the indians.

anyway enjoy the weekend. i will see you guys if you ever come up between havasu and laughlin. i am all over that stretch of the river now

We are heading to McIntyre over the memorial Day weekend.  Dont have a spot there but will be launching from there.  Hope to see some of you on the water or in Goose Flats if we can even get in there.  Praying for high water.

Hippy hole is really far down river from goose flats. It's almost 15 miles or more. I wish my boat would make it down there.
