a ruler's guide to the lake
In an ongoing series, we'll look at some great standards and best practices to live by on The Lake to maximize your lake rep and go down in the annals of Lake history as one of the greats!
One of my earliest memories of being on the lake was way back in the late 80s, when our old Viking deck boat stopped working. I remember multiple family members jumping in the water to swim with ropes to tow that old dog into the marina. That stunk. I also remember a time later when our Bayliner stopped working, and a nice person in another boat giving us a tow into the marina. That did not stink. In fact, it was an act that I think is somewhat standard and representative of the lake life, and those that truly Rule The Lake will adhere by rule # 3: Always help out your fellow lakers...and your lake.
