Spent 6 days logging 325 miles, great weather, good fishing, and the old tub ran like a Swiss watch.

Great pictures, Glad you had a great time.

We were there the last week of August and had a great time as well. we also took the trip to Rainbow Bridge by way of Bullfrog. We were camping at the Stanton Creek primitive area.

140 GALLONS.
The first top off of the 92 gallon tank was 71 gallons at $3.85 per gallon on land, the next 79 gallons was $5.05 to $5.50 per gallon on the water.
Came home with 30 gallons in the tank which I topped off again a week later for a 105 mile Catalina trip which used 43 gallons.

How much fuel does Wet Ever have left ?

Put a total of 430 miles on it in 2-1/2 weeks. (with a Cobra outdrive and points :ohmy: )

The last time prior to this trip that I was at Powell, (1986) the whole area that is now the Stanton Creek primitive area was underwater, we boat camped there with no one in sight.

Times and water levels have sure changed !

yep with the lake water level down over 100ft. it sure changes the complexion of the lake that is for sure, on the plus you get to see lots of thing that haven't been visible in years, on the minus, it make some of the hikes and other fun land marks longer or without access.

We have been making yearly trips for the last few years, and it's always something different, but that also keeps it interesting an fun.
