I'm definitely up for a trip this winter. I was thinking of trying to be semi-spontaneous based on what winter brings. We haven't had any "real" ice on the lake since 2003, don't know what this year will bring. If no big ice then maybe try for some unholy cold. A day or two well below zero when the "lake smoke" is in full effect would be good. Count me in and lets shoot for Jan/Feb.
Wildbill, thank's for the kind words and plug!
