Default I'm such a chicken.....!!!!!

I went to the lake I was running at the other day and the weeds are already to the surface[&o] I remebered seeing a pond by my parents friends house so I went and looked at it. It is sweet, there are rocks all around it so no mud I decided that I should go ask the people if I could use it. [][] I was soooooooooo nervis when I went up to the house but the people were older and extremely nice. Well the old man was kindof stubbern sounding but I now have a nice pond to run at. I am soooo excited and the best part is that they live in fort worth Texas so they won't have to listen to my boats.

Dont be scared, all they can say is no. Do your home work and you will eventually have some nice private lakes and ponds to run in. I am currently allowed to run on 2 private lakes/ponds here in my little town. I doubt most people even know that they are there.
Did not have any luck with rock quarry's. Seems to be a liability issue. 200-600' deep ponds about 3-4 acres long.
I was able to find a GIS map locator for my town and am able to filter what I want to see on the map. Major streets and streams/ponds are all that I usually look for. Works well.
Here is a link just so you can check it out.

You will need to download the viewer first.
