Ice cream headache

I walked about a half mile across the ice to an island where a tree crew is working. The ice has almost no snow on it so it was very treacherous walking.
When I came back, one of the guys gave me a ride on the 4 wheeler. That cold air on the forehead gave me a headache.

They always tell me "a head like that ought to ache"

We've had the snowsleds out on the ice at least one day a week this month. Lotsa fun to go screaming across the pond.
I find it interesting to find the places where the ice buckles and pushes around rocks and such.

There was a show on the Discovery Channel about a month ago about the "Ice Road Truckers" in Canada. Thats crazy business.

That would do it! It is such a foreign world that you describe. For me any way. Walking on ice. Hooey. Must go to work now. Chow.

The ice is so clear, it takes a little getting used to. Kind of spooky. Especially when it gives out one of those big BOOMs like it likes to to every now and then.
But I talked to a fisherman on the way out and he says there's about 3' of ice. And there's vehicles driving all over the lake. He had his truck.
Still feels funny though.

Clear ice is good...Means no air, so no weak spots...I have literally fished on 2 inches of clear ice with no snow...I agree that when the fish swim 2 inches under your feet it is a might startling...

3 feet and you can quite safely drive a full 18 wheeler across...

When the ice is talking, it is still building...When it is dead quiet it is losing ice from the bottom up...

My Father still refuses to go out on the ice...He is scared to death of it...I took the Girl and the Dog the other day when Lake Champlain finally locked...We had a blast and chatted with some nice people...
