The day started out like any other day on a conversion site. My team met up for breakfast early in the morning and discussed our rout and timings for the day. We then loaded up in the cars, got ice for the two coolers that Jerry (CU VP) loaned us and Jerry even met us so we could follow him out to the like. What a great guy. We then took off for an hour drive to the lake and arrived at 11 ish. After getting the boat rented and restroom breaks taken, we jumped aboard and with Michael at the helm, headed for the center of the lake. About 20 minutes into the trip, captain Michael cut the motor and we started the feast for lunch that actually continued throughout the rest if the day. Captain Michael and First Mate Kim, were nice enough to have purchased bags full of food the night before. Sandwich meat, cheese chips of all sorts beer wine coolers and schmirnoff ice, just toped off the menu. The only thing missing was sweets and with the snack foods the CU had put out for us all week,,,,trust me, we did not miss it.
During the trip we enjoyed each others company due to one definate rule,,"no shop talk". The scenery the "not to cold" water and the 85 degree temp and for the perfect day. We had many water fights with the 5 or 6 water guns, which kept us cool. Michael took the first dip and not to be out done, Chris followed and we were even able to finally talk Kim and Kimberly in to swimming with us.
The day ended with a nice ride home where we had to stop at the "Kum and Go". I figure the name is enough to give you the idea of the topic of our playful conversation for days to come. Or is that Kum?
Jerry planed a great Italian meal for us that evening, so we met up with him a the hotel and we followed him to the restaurant for a 7pm reservation with he and his wife Kathy. Nothing could have toped this day off better.
