If you're lucky enough to live on a lake, you're lucky enough!
Boating, swimming, tubing, floating, dogs, drinking, decorating, gadgets, entertaining, home improvement, and everything else that goes with living on the lake.
I've been laid up the last two weeks after undergoing an operation for a torn labrum in my hip along with FAI. I am tracking my progress and focusing on my comeback to triathlon over on the Triathlon page. It was not great timing for the peak of the triathlon and lake season, but after almost two years in constant pain, it was time to get it fixed. 4 more weeks until I can get back in the Lake. Can't wait!
The King’s Blog – An Introduction
Welcome to The King’s Blog, the feature blog of Rule The Lake! This blog was inspired by several conversations I’ve had with non-lake friends, associates, and co-workers about being on the lake over the last few years, none of which ended with them understanding just how special the “lake life” is. There is something different about the way of life on and around The Lake, and non-Lakers just can’t, don’t, or won’t understand it. How many of you out there have explained living on the lake to someone unfamiliar with it? It’s frustrating, isn’t it! You can tell them all the great things about it repeatedly, but there is something more to it that you have to experience before it really sinks in (this topic will be explored throughout the life of the blog). On the lake people are friendlier, happier, easy going, more inclined to be active, and most certainly helpful! It truly is a wonderful place to be and is a place where your everyday stress disappears. Having a bad day? Go sit by the water and watch the ducks swim around and quack. Bad traffic? Get out on that boat for a quick cruise, ski, or swim! Miss a workout? Jump in the lake, canoe, kayak, or paddleboard and you’re all good! Whatever life throws at you, the lake has an answer! This is the spirit of this blog, and of Rule The Lake! There are so many great things about “The Lake” which I think are worth writing about and sharing with you, and I hope you read and share your experiences with me as well!
Throughout the blog, you’ll be getting stories, anecdotes, humor (or at least what I think is funny), reviews, tips, deals, and products, and much more that will certainly be relevant to anyone that spends time on a lake. My goal is to provide you with everything you need to rule the lake and I am excited to pursue that effort! Take a look around the site, leave some comments, or send me an email! Make Rule The Lake your hub for all things lake related! You can also follow me on Instagram @Kingofthelake, the site @rulethelake, or on Twitter @rulethelake. Like us on Facebook and check out our videos on Youtube (when the water gets warm and I make some). Now go jump in the lake!
The "King" of the Lake
I'm Mike, I live on a lake in the Midwest. I boat, ski, swim, kayak, tube, float, drink, and everything else there is to do on the lake, and then I write about it! I have a Golden Lab named Murphy, and when not injured I compete in triathlons. Read More
