Hats off to the ice road builders!

3 posts in this topic

We showed up at Zipple last Friday morning 6:45 and the ice

road crew (Nick included) was just coming back in from

repairing cracks and getting ready for the day. There was

a guy or two at at least one bridge to guide the trucks

across......all day and into the dark of night! The same

goes on at Adrians Road. Morris Point and at Long Point

and Rocky Point where the ice can really be trouble.

These people work extreeeeemly hard all winter so we can

have fun. Ice road access at 8 bucks is the best money

I ever spent. Thank the crews as you drive safely by.

They sure do a great job up there Curt. One thing though that really puts my shorts in a bunch are the people who think that blowing by you at 40 mph is the way to drive on these roads. Man they must think that the beer is being rationed at the lodges. If they could only see the affect of that type driving under the ice and the potential for a blowout they might sit back relax and take a chill pill. Bill

I must echo both Curt's and Bills remarks. I was up on Adrians road on Friday and the amount of work those folks do is outstanding. When we were leaving the ice we had a group of about 12 vehicles leaving the ice and some one decided we were going to slow.

I can't say enough about the folks who make it easier for us "southerners" who venture up that way and have a wonderful weekend.

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
