Escape!

New Thing: Pay 30 dolars each. Get locked in a room. Try to escape. Sounds kind of crazy, but I can see the appeal to gamers or tech kids to try to figure it out. Not many have!

Some of my friends had done research. “This is supposed to be one of the hardest escape games.” Keri informed us, having looked it up online. “Even in gamer circles, the San Francisco one is supposed to be tough.” more here

Clear Lake is #3 on Best Bass Lakes of 2013

"If this place isn’t a dream lake for a bass fisherman, that fisherman needs to check his pulse." Bassmaster Magazine says Clear Lake is #3 on Best Bass Lakes of 2013. I've never had a 100 fish day but I did have a 70+ day catching (and releasing) bass at Clear Lake. It's a great lake for sure!
Go with guide Bob Myskey at www.fishclearlake.com for a fun day. He's awesome. Here's a couple of Clear Lake bass I caught (then released) on a trip with him a few years ago. Read more here when they talk about 25 or 30 pounds a day to win a tournament that is for just 5 fish!
