Lake McQueeney, Dunlap, Placid & Meadow VERSES The Pedernales River

A few years ago, a friend and I were arguing about what are the best skiable lakes/rivers in Texas.  As well as which would be the best real estate investment.  My vote hands down are for the Central Texas Lakes including: Lake McQueeney, Lake Dunlap, Lake Placid, & Meadow Lake.  His vote was the Pedernales River (upper part of Lake Travis).  I recalled this argument, when I ran across the video below of the Pedernales River from this past July during one of the worst droughts in Texas history.  Even during this record breaking drought the central Texas lakes remained at a constant level.  This video of me (Hunter Croan) wakeboarding was shot on Meadow Lake.  I could not get a helicopter so I got the next best thing which was an RC glider with an HD camera on the belly (Thanks Swami).  My question to you: Which lake would you purchase a piece of waterfront real estate on?  I know if I had my lake house for sale on Meadow Lake this past summer, I would get more interested buyers than compared to a piece of Pedernales River real estate for sale.  Now that you have SEEN the facts….you decide.
