Title: Just moved to Las Vegas
Post by: TheJasonMurphy on January 16, 2017, 08:38:13 PM
So now that I left Los Angeles and moved out to Las Vegas.

Can I still claim so cal jet boats?

 I've learned so much from all of you here. Thank You.
I'm looking forward to attending my first events this upcoming season to introduce myself. I need new boater friends.
Im so fired up about being so close to the Colorado River. I can't wait for the weather to warm up!!

Brad who runs the site lives in Vegas area and there are a ton of people that live out there from this site. Don't have to be from so cal to rep this site or brand.

Welcome to Vegas....I made the move about 8 years ago and like you I was worried about regretting it. Born and Raised in SoCal, I thought I wouldn't last in this town and get homesick.

I don't regret it at all. Best decision I've ever made. There is always something to do here. I live in Henderson where I am less than 20 minutes to the boat ramp. 1 1/2 hours to Laughlin for the river. 45 minutes to Willow Beach for COLD river....

There is not much traffic in town - nothing even close to the shit in SoCal....no Libtard gun laws... etc etc etc.

There is a group of us that usually get together every once n awhile starting in March/April....or whenever the weather warms up. One big rule for Lake Mead is to watch the weather forecast closely. Any winds over 10mph spells disaster out there. The lightest winds can case ocean sized swells in no time. I've been out there when in a trough of a wave, the peak of the swell was over my head. It's not fun and obviously extremely dangerous for smaller boats.

We'll keep you posted if/when we meet up and go out. What part of town did you settle in?

Hey Brad.
Love this site. I've learned so much. Thank you.
Same here born and raised in so cal. But financially this move here made sense for me. I'm currently staying with a friend in summerlin. But looking to get my own place soon. I have looked at the Henderson area.
For sure I would like to meet up. Last year was the first time  I had the boat out and don't have any boater friends.  Just sea doo friends and I'm no fan of the sea doo crowd.

North end of mead is awesome for our kinds of boats!! No one wants to travel up that far I guess! But that translates into no one to hangout and shoot the shit with.... south end gets all chopped up with wake boats and going through the "narrow" forget about it! Anyone wants to hit the north end this summer I'm game!! This pic was on a Saturday last summer!

We have been going to Mead for the last 10 years, with several different boats. Like Brad said watch the weather, it can get nasty quick but can also be like glass. Just depends. CallVille Bay is close to Sandy beach where there are always lots of parties. We like to go out of Boulder and head northwest toward swallow. There is an island, maybe a few more by now, but some nice beaches around there. Like Chad said we try to post up when we are all going but me and the family will definitely be there more this year with our cruiser. Welcome to VTown!
