It's quite a trip to walk out onto what you know full well is a body of water. I really have to work to not think about that fact or I get awfully nervous. As you can see from the pictures it was quite a day, weather-wise...snowing hard and the wind blowing it basically sideways.
I can say with all honesty that once I got out there, I confirmed my suspicion that there are very few activities I would like do less than spend an afternoon ice fishing. Still, the kids got a kick out of seeing the ice house and we got a chance to work off some cabin fever energy while the risk of frostbite was lower.

|When you think about it, what's not to like about sitting out where no one|
can reach you, listening to music and sipping Coors Light?

half Alaskan after all
