with the extra snow might be wise to have it

I would agree, I was up in mid February and the ice was 33 inches. That was before all the snow. Without the extension we would have just barely made it through.

I have a strike master mag and I was up a week and a half ago before snow. I made it threw, but it was very close. Had to kick away slush on both side. I have ext. In glove box, but if I do not have to use it I don't. With out it I seem to drill faster. The motor is not eye level, so easier to hold on to. I know they say the proper way is to let machine do all the work, but some down force is needed. I did notice about 1/2 of foot difference of ice between a mile out from shore verses out on flats. I would say about 3' about a mile out and 2 1/2' out on flats. Still good ice and with snow insulating I do not know how much ice has been made in last week.

      Ya I was going to say the landings are going to take a beating with the run off especially the steep ones

      After superbowl sounds good to me that will give it time for this slush and slop to freeze as well

      I bet that cedar lake was borderline to drive on before the warm up in the first place.
