      Driving on Ice

      Anyone driving their trucks on the ice yet. I measured 18 inches last weekend on Crystal Springs. Pretty clear ice too. Except for the few snow drifts I think I could have driven my Frontier out there.

      Guys have been pulling out their 1 tons and ice castles out on less than that. 18" of consistent ice you'll be just fine.

      18 inches should be plenty but especially this year I wouldn't tell anyone to drive on the ice yet. Definitely colder over there but a small dam I was on yesterday had less than 8 inches here in eastern MT. Be careful, 18 in one place can easily be 9 a few feet away.

      I'm sitting on 17 with the half ton now. Only the bottom 8 is nice clear ice. The top is cloudy.

      I'd say were over to 2 feet at Metigoshe. Good clear ice for the most part.

      Well. According to the small city of Ice castles on my local lake. It’s perfectly safe. I’m still running out with sled and portable but that’s just me. And I like to roam away from everyone.

      Anyone have a recent Beaver Bay ice report? Specifically west of the bridge?

      Last weekend was 16 inches east of bridge and 12-14 west of bridge in the bay. 8 inches under the bridge. 6-8 inches west closer to river channel.
