will there be any type of plowed road going out of JRs or West Wind for the weekend? (for us walkers)

How much longer to we expect until trucks can get out? this past weekend we found areas with 12 inches, granted that was only 1/2 mile out

I checked the ice yesterday and I found 8-10 inches of ice. Its not going to be enough to plow a road on yet but soon. West Wind won't have a road this weekend but depending on the weather, it will be as soon as the ice is safe for vehicle traffic.

no one even plows a trail with a 4wheeler yet?

On Upper Red a four wheeler trail would last about 1/2 hour with this snow and wind before it became the deepest snow on the lake. Thats why the guys that have been plowing ice roads for the last 30 years make them super wide and super straight then fight 24/7 to keep them open.

Soon the plows will be rolling.

some folks think the road is so wide that they might as well set up their portable in the middle of it! Sorry, I couldn't resist...

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
