Back in the day I had a mentor who was quite affluent but he had experienced some ups and downs in his professional career. You would be hanging out at his luxurious home as some holiday party and he would declare with as much humility as you probably are allowed and declare I am been rich and I have been poor.I prefer rich. LOL

Since this is my 1st summer owning a jet ski, and last summer was my first summer owning a kayak, I can say that going up and down the Colorado river is fun enough in a kayak but give me a ski or a boat all day long!

Willow Beach is a popular alternative to Lake Mead to ride locally around Las Vegas but due to the fish hatchery at Willow Beach, PWCs are only allowed to head up the Colorado River towards the Hoover Dam after Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. AND, only Tuesday through Saturday. Thus, as a newbie kayaker last year I would always paddle up Black Canyon on Sundays to avoid all the wake action that PWCs and motorized boats can generate.
