Southern Nevada Fun Run
 
Since things are opening up more, I will keep Southern Nevada runs separate from Southern California.

I do not meet regularly yet, but will try to post when I do so others can join if they want/can.

Normally I meet a the Big Bend of the Colorado river, just south of Laughlin. There is a lagoon there that is perfect for runs. The water is clear and the shore has a beach quality consistency. The water is usually clear.

Went to the river (unplanned, last minute) and had a great time with a new sub. This is an Engel Akula II. It can be purchased as an all parts included kit and works out to be a outstanding submarine. (https://engel-modellbau.eu/shop/en/S...Kits/AKULA-II/)

The water was a bit cloudy (mainly a lot of people and me shuffling around), but it was Memorial Day Weekend. As summer comes around, if I run on the weekend, I have to get there as early as possible, by noon, it can get busy.
Peace,
Tom

Looking to run some subs early Monday morning for a couple of hours. If you are in the neighborhood, please come to the river. Will not stay long, it will get hot and probably crowded.

Weather was very warm....I am not saying hot because in the morning and standing in the river water it was very comfortable. Ran the Walrus. Here is a youtube:
