On Saturday, Don decided to see what the ice conditions were like. He found out that the conditions are very poor. He made it to the bay down by the portage and he did make it to the muskeg area but when he looked back he could see the ice bobbing along as if they were ice cubes in a drink glass. Needless to say this did give him a good dose of reality, he was thinking that he might have to walk back to camp but, "your throttle is your friend" and he made it home safely. He's eager to see if he can get back to the portage but he'll wait for another few days.
Don's off checking some of his wolf snares this morning, I've got lots of pre Christmas things to do around here.
