Steve, just wondering if you got your woodstove hooked up and running. Our furnace has only kicked on a few times this fall due to running wood most of the time grin.gif BC

Hey Mark:

Yep, got 'er hooked up and ducted into the furnace ductwork. Propane tank was on 24 percent in mid Sept. and is all the way down to 23 percent now. grin.gifgrin.gif

October's been cold, but the only time the furnace has kicked in is when we went out of town last weekend. I'm about 2/3 of the way through cutting and splitting six cords of maple, oak and a little birch.

Definitely looking forward to saving at least $1,000 in fuel this winter. The thing is a monster, weighing about 400 lbs, but we got it down the basement with just me and one other guy. GRUNT! grin.gif

      With the snow that fell last night, that literally is glued to the ice from the warm temps and light rain; and now seeing more in the forecast, it's sure setting up to be a very dangerous early ice season out there. Even Mud didn't freeze well. Only about an 1.5" a hundred yds from the road on Saturday. YIKES!

      I heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!

      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.
