Default How to survive a fall through the ice....

FLL and Upthesaukee raise important points. Also, if you havenít already, look up the self rescue techniques for getting out of the water if you do fall through. Easy to find on the internet/YouTube.

Also, I have ice-awls that are packed in a nice Velcro pack that attach to my forearm for easy access.

As Iím sure everyone knows, itís mostly about being cautious and not making assumptions about ice conditions.
