Grump - do you (or someone out there Friday night) have a cell #?  Assuming there is coverage, we can either give you a better idea of when to expect us or, heaven forbid, something happens to make us cancel.

So Grump....How much snow did you get up that way ??? Do you think we will still be able to drive onto the ice ??? I know I won't have a problem (FORD) but I want to do some fishing....not just towing GM's and Dodges around all day  :roflmao: :roflmao:

AC.....just a dusting this morning with high winds....talked to Rod at rockbottom this morning...not much to speak of....with last weekends thaw, you could pretty much drive anywhere on the lake where we are located....just dont go on the original road....the guys that give us access will likely plow (if needed)....so either way....no danger of getting into trouble....Grump

Is there a check-in point on the farm where we should pay a fee or anything?  Somebody posted a while back about a $2 fee on Lake Dauphin, but I don't know if this is the spot.  If there's no more snow before Saturday, we're still good to go.  I hope the snow eases off with no drifting because my Caravan just doesn't have the clearance you guys have with trucks.  I also hope a road will be cleared onto the ice so I can get the van on, or I'll have to unload the gear and park it in the farmyard, then trust you guys to help ferry the gear out.

Right now, road conditions don't look to bad - http://tgs.gov.mb.ca/roadinfo/default.asp?varLanguage=English.  I will keep an eye on things though.  AC, if you get out at your expected time, you could probably call us at home with a road report  ;D

Golly, it seems to change hourly!  Friday, 10:17 AM, and there are large stretches of #5 Hwy and #68 through the L. Manitoba narrows where travel is not advised, including the hwy up to Ochre River........ Guess we'll just have to keep an eye on snowfall and wind conditions.  In the meantime, I'm packing to be ready to go tomorrow AM.
