Wheelers on the ice

3 posts in this topic

just wondering if I am going to be able to get my wheeler out on PB? Hows the slush conditions?

It all depends on the weather... The wind yesterday helped a lot BUT there is still dangerous ice in certain areas... The snow blew off some of the slush covered areas, and allowed that slush to freeze... If you access PB from the south end, ny guess is you will not be able to get your house out there... The wind yesterday was NW and blowing into that shoreline, most likely causing some big drifts... I should be out there this weekend and could try to swing by there for you...

Hope this helps,

Beef

I was over that direction with the wheeler on Sat. for a few hours. We didn't have any trouble getting around. There were some minor drifts that were easily crushed as well as some slushy areas, but in 4x4 they were not even worth a blink.

Despite our "easy" riding, be careful out there! You never know when there's a soft spot below!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
