  1. Last week
  2. soooo....hows the janitorial staff of this online outhouse.
  3. Well it appeared to be the normal chaos of every holiday weekend at the lake. The biggest difference I saw was in Russell Springs and Jamestown. None of the restaurants seem to have reopened their dining rooms and were continuing to close early. I have to think a lot of money was missed there. The ramp at PH was worse than normal since there was not enough space to turn around at the bottom and because the normal parking for golf carts and side by sides was under water. It was entertaining watching a lot of 24' plus boats being backed all the way down the hill. I did not see one mask in use at the marina or ramp. The only place I saw any masks were Kroger and food servers.
  4. Earlier
  5. We just came home from a week at our boat. Gonna let the crowds have it for Memorial Day. Our marina and ramp was pretty much the same as what you said JSG, except almost all were making a point of staying 6 feet apart and not gathering on each other's boats like we normally do. I expect all of that to fall apart during the holiday weekend. Stay at home orders are ending in KY and Ohio and I believe many are hitting the road to all Kentucky lakes. Many ramps are going to be closed or difficult to use due to high water.
  6. So for anyone still checking this place, what changes have you seen at the lake due to little Andy's orders? I have seen fewer people for sure over the last 2 months. There have been fewer people at their cottages, on the ramp, and at the marina. However those I have seen at the ramp or marina have been acting like there is nothing new. They have not been doing any "social distancing" and I have not seen one mask, pair of gloves, or bottle of hand sanitizer in use. As we have finally started to get warmer weekends and everyone has become tired of Andy's dictates, I have seen more traffic on the ramp and the marina has more boats sitting on the lifts but it is still noticeably less busy that in years past. Last weekend, less than half our slips (Pleasant Hill) had boats. Normally, 95% of the slips are in use by now. Is it this way everywhere on the lake? I have to imagine it will be busy this weekend at least since it is a holiday and I really believe most people have had their fill of "Healthy at Home".
  7. I have not checked the forum for months and wonder why I did this time. Anybody want to publish and over/under on how long it's up this time?
  8. Ok, I'll jump in and start a topic to see what happens. On April 13th, the COE issued their "Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and unsigned Finding of No Significant Impact" report with an invitation for written comments for a 30 day period which ends today. This is in response to J.D. Hamilton's request to expand his Lake Cumberland Marina footprint to extend all the way to the old Alligator I ramp. I received the email, but I'm not sure how I got on their list. The main document is over 80 pages long and explains every detail and the entire history of the project. I'm sure many of you received this as well. I will attempt to share it on this post. The discussions on FaceBook have been very emotional and somewhat immature for the most part, which is why I prefer forums like this one. We boat out of Wolf Creek Marina, so I have a keen interest but can't really say I have a dog in this fight. People who regularly use the Ally 1 ramp are fiercely protective of that park, and I understand that. I'd like to hear from others; 1) Do you think the COE will allow this to go forward, and 2) if so, do you think current economic conditions will delay or stop it?

  9. I check way too frequently to make sense, but this is the longest it has been up in years. Now all it needs is some activity.
  10. Wow, back up again. I'm not sure why I even checked.
  11. I thought it was over. Hope it isn't a fluke!
  12. It appears it is alive, but no moderator has been on in a couple of years, so we may just be experiencing a Twilight Zone moment.
  13. Are we back up again I wish this sight would take off again it was fun
  14. I'm guessing sometime in July when Spoonbill first posted. I checked on and off but not regularly and was never able to sign in.
  15. I can't believe my eyes . How long has it been up ? I was afraid that all the knowledge had been lost for ever.
  16. This site seems to be someone's failed aspirations right now. Hopefully it will get some love from the owner sometime soon or just be put out of it's misery. As it has been for the last year or so, you never know if the site is hacked, updated, or just drifting in the wind. Eventhough there were not that many users a few years ago, I liked it and checked the forums regularly. Now I just use it to see the lake level and maybe look at a web cam. Lord knows the lakecumberland.com domain could be a money maker but it would take some effort.
  17. That is my guess, because the website has his advertisement all over it. Don't know because the admin does not respond.
  18. Captain Jim? Good question. I do not know. Two couples use to own the site. They had give aways and seem to care about getting people interested but that didn't last long.
  19. Did the fishing guy buy this site
  20. A few of us seem to keep checking the site. I truly miss the comradery this group had. I have a place on Wolf Creek at Cumberland Lake.
  21. There have to be enough of us oldish guys who do not post our every movement (bowel among others) on social media to keep this site alive. I rarely had anything to post, but I enjoyed the interaction of the members. Any Dale Hollow people out there?
  22. Hello hello is anybody out there hello
  23. I hope it stays up this time I enjoy this sight better than Facebook better information
  24. I only joined facebook once...under a phony name and it wasn't but a few months before they terminated my account because someone apparently didn't like my brutal honesty. IMHO the only thing facebook is good for is spying on your old friends, neighbors, coworkers and classmates. I tend to shy away from any platform with a Leftist agenda...which is pretty much all of them.
  25. I receive weird looks from people that can't believe I never joined Facebook. I loved this forum in it's prime. Cumberline, Captain Bob, and the rest of the gang were fun and educated me well on my new found love of Lake Cumberland. We will retire next year and hope to make Russell Springs our next place of residence. I would have loved all their expert knowledge of the area.
  26. I would think a forum like this should flourish...especially since people these days aren't so keen on joining the censoring and spying facebook. I don't know of any other LC forums...none that I'm interested in joining, that is.
  27. I agree with you both. It is insane that there is no communication about the site. Whoever runs this thing needs to either announce a final date and kill it on that date or actually maintain it and keep it running correctly. They could also just sell it to me for $1. I will make it my retirement hobby.
