i was on Areoflex today. Didn't go too far from ramp but lots of people were out in various places. Ice was 4 inches where I drilled. Surface got wetter as time went on.

Lotta stuff I used to do in the 80's I can't do anymore! Glad for the season we had and looking to expand the expectations great 2019! Actually dragged my sled from the pole barn into the basement this afternoon, what a bummer!
