3/28/17 – Let the ice measuring begin! When we encountered a lake covered in large puddles at the start of our daily cross country ski, we thought it prudent to measure the ice before venturing too far. Lest you worry about us, there are still 24 inches of solid ice with about 4 inches of hard packed slush and snow on top of that. Our ski was a sloppy one, with soaking socks to prove it. With temperatures in the high 40’s and the sun shining the sky was reflected perfectly in the large pools of standing water. It felt for all the world like we were skiing on the sky.

Who needs pushups when you can auger through 24″ of ice?
