looks like next 3-4 days going to be windy and "warm". :D
I really thinking about getting some. let me know if there is anyone up there brave or crazy enough to join me.

You really need good gear and skills to play with mother nature now.

Has anyone checked if Wolf is frozen? I know the big lake for the most part isn't, but the small inland lakes are frozen, but just not thick enough to do anything on yet. In my opinion I think we are in that middle stage where it's not liquid, but not yet totally frozen. It usually happens about 3-4 weeks earlier, but hey, it's been a warm winter.

I can't go cause I just bruised my heels the other day (shoot, maybe I fractured them) Have fun either way.

small lake wont work, they freeze over fast. Big lake will pump some warm water toward shore on windy day. plus you get big waves :D
so far we have 4 brave souls! lol

if tomorrow is going to work, than Mc. looks like the water there is 35, must be the power plant
