My boyfriend and I took a short two day trip over to Sebring (FL) to ride our waverunners in some freshwater lakes. It was about 90 miles each way and the Escape performed just great towing my little waverunner, didn't even know it was back there. I got about 22 MPG (according to the info. display) while towing. Here are a few pictures, we ended up staying overnight at a little local place that was just beautiful. We had a great time and all my muscles are sore today!!

nice pics!! that F-150 looks sweet!.

i was on one of those crazy water motorcycles last summer for the first time. ive been on lots of boats and been in most of the great lakes. but those PWC's are crazy how fast you accelerate and turn! i took my daughter out and let her drive it, she was 4, and had a blast. my wife and i discussed getting a couple when the kids get a bit older.

Well, I first took my daughter out on it when she was four (wanted to make sure she could swim well enough just in case we fell off!) and she loved it, she will turn 6 this month and still loves going out on it every chance we can get! When she gets a little older I think she will "inherit" my old one and I will have to suffer and go get a new one :angel:

Oh boy...now I have Evil Strict angry..that can't be a good thing :D

Ok, in an effort to satiate the insatiable demand that all you escape citians have for pic's and to dig myself out of the hole I am in..here is a pic of an action shot (as requested). It is not from my recent freshwater lake escapade but rather from my normal saltwater haunt in lovely Sarasota...AND, since it has my kid in it.....and she is just soooooooo adorable (momma's a wee bit prejudiced!!), I am sure all previous transgressions will be forgiven!!
