    The great white north.

    Soon the ice will yield and I shall unleash my PWC fleet! Muwhahahaha. Until then I must suffer as I watch the ice retreat from the shore.

    Ok, snapping back to reality the middle of my lake is open . The ice 10ish feet from shore is open. I have 75-100 ft of ice between the open waters taunting me.

    Perhaps I can go kamikaze, ram through the ice, and connect the open waters .

    I grew up in Northern Michigan, just south of Mackinaw Island/City. Must have blocked out of my memory how long it takes spring to finally arrive that far north

    I don't care how cold it is here I riding this weekend in a little lake in Northeast Ohio. I have a wetsuit, and predict a short ride. I just can't take the riding stories anymore from our southern counterparts. I have spring fever bad!!

    The Bay of Green Bay still has ice and the Fox River is swarmed with Walleye Fishermen. I don't think I could get my ski through all of them.

    I am dying to get out on the lake. Ski or boat I don't care. I hate this time of year. I can't drive on the ice or float on the water. Maybe I should build a hovercraft.

    Funny story...I have a guy who works for me who submitted an expense report to get to Ohio from Bimidgee (spelling). He had like 300 or so miles (maybe more) submitted and airfare. I said did you drive or fly, he said I flew. I said than whats the milage for, his reply was it took him that many miles to get to the nearest big city airport . I was like holy s#*t thats north!
