Boat/Road Trip in Dock Talk Posted January 2 Happy New Years. so my wife and I take our boat on lots of vacations and explore new lakes. The farthest from us here in central Illinois is to Lake Cumberland. Usually twice a year. We have done the Ozarks and Lake Erie. These trips can sometimes be as short as a long weekend. My question is do you take yours on trips like this? If so how far away, how long?
