Plans change i guess...we did last year and were hoping to this, but it wasn't meant to be.

I pray for "Normal" Ice Out every year.

If you keep praying for earlier ice out, we won't have any ice.

A normal season is a healthy for the lakes and surrounding land.

Hey...no fair!! when the pain in the ass of island life outweighs the benefit of island life, it's time to wrap it up. My schedule at work added some 6:45 start times...put me on the boat at 5:15...dark in, dark out.

We called it a season on Saturday. Too much going on at home to keep going. We finished all of our planned projects and its time to focus on the holidays.

I hope you enjoyed the beers I left on the C-Nile

Totally understand! My wife and I went back and forth for a couple years on a year-round or seasonal camp. Ultimately, finances forced us into seasonal, but we've come to appreciate being able to shut down for the winter and not worry about anything while also enjoying new activities and getting things done.

We also appreciate having something to look forward to!

I sure did...it's too late in the year to replenish the boat wine!

Default Adventure

Descant brings up a really good point.....at least for me. Hidden unpleasant surprises lurk below the surface.
Years ago my brother and I were headed northwest past Parker Island in 2' chop. There was the sound of a rifle crack I pulled up the bilge window and a fountain sprung up. Pre cell phones we kept bow up and headed to the tip of Jockey Cove and yelled at a property owner to call ahead to Wolfeboro. Bow up we went to Northeast Marine where the lift was ready we drove in with water over the floorboards and got pulled out.

Short story 2' crack up center of deep v on 18' boat.

We were super lucky and it was summer. Marina said we hit a log I would have to agree.

Extend your season and the water temp drops 25 degrees. Better have a survival suit (if you can get it on)if your phone gets wet you are toast and no one is around to help you. What seems like a routine summer event like having dinner can quickly take a turn for the worst. If an adverse event happens you put others at risk coming after you. Most of the tragedies on the lake are the result of unanticipated events. The lake deserves the same level of respect as Mt. Washington.

Best wishes to all in this virtual community for a Thanksgiving to be thankful for.
