nice day to fly. I'll check the ice for ya
So what the heck am I supposed to do today, laundry or some such nonsense.
that's what I do every weekend.
Surprisingly there looks to b a lot of standing water on your course. I'll post up some aerial photos soon. There is hardly any snow left on the ice but a lot of open holes from fisherman
pitot tube ..hey sorry, I was banking a little bit
all of the dark spots appeared to be shimmering like water..liquid water...
and some pretty freaky ice to the north a bit
a few low angle shots at ...were only temporary
Wow, that looks like it's in really good shape yet. I drove out to take a peek a bit ago and the surface looks really nice (told ya so) but with the snow tomorrow, we're gonna get a lot of water on top again
linky: FOUR vehicles have gone in so far....
Went up and bombed around a little this morning. I pulled on at the BP in Fondy, started to drive towards the normal track area until there was a truck sized hole in the old path... I decided parking parking next to the launch was probably a good idea
Off-loaded the bike and rode up to wendt's, Dodging spearing holes along the way. Id say at least 2/3's the holes either didn't have any marking, or the sticks had fallen over. VERY hard to spot them before you got to them. It's going to be a real minefield out there when they skin over tonight and snows on top of them.:eek1
The ice is uneven, But has a hard surface. The old roads that were plowed have sections of open water.
Found a nice smooth spot and was attempting to get the handlebar to touch down... Was working fairly well until I fell off and the bike decided to chase me... Then it decided it would be fun to drive ITSELF in 20' circles while idling, Laying on its side... I managed to grab hold and it drug me along for about a lap before I managed to get to the kill button All of this at about 5 mph.
Rode back down the lake:
Up the other side to check out FdL Fest-
Managed to tip the bike over into the trailer, Tearing the seat and busting the trailer tail light.... Lots of folks pulling the shanties off.
Sounds like my laundry idea was pretty good then , seeing as how Jodi did it
GPS in ground effect was probably lying. yup. . Vne =175 btw...knots !
soooo riding sunday?
After seeing the ice today, I wouldn't try it.
I don't think you'd be able to talk anyone into plowing a track anyways.
5 cars sunk. One dead. Holes aplenty, big enough to sink a truck.
So just how much insurance is on the jeep again?
I mean is that a no or what?
Really sorry to hear that.
Sounds like a no to me. Too bad I can't get my black Subaru up there
We need to find a frozen swamp to ride on, less likley to die when riding.
I'm pretty sure insurance is a moot point when driving on frozen water - I don't think they cover anything that happens. That means the damage, and the recovery costs ($$$$) are up to the sinkee
Looks like a good day to stay inside.
Jesse, look at the radar.
Jeep has the lowest needed. The thing stays parked 98% of the year.
Thats too bad. That Jeep is retro cool. I'd drive it year round. I have some new parts for it (I think they will fit) from my 88 Grand Waggy. (RIP)
For the record I was kidding.
Got the ice fender brackets welded up just in time for summer.
