On the Ice

So I told myself I would try an do 5 things in 2019 that I have never tried and this is the beginning story of my first one. My first new Adventure is Ice fishing, however so not to bring you all to a snoozing halt I have decided to break it up into a couple or 3 story lines. the first one being... on the Ice.

I know it was safe, but not a big fan of being way out on a frozen lake, that I normally only see during the summer months.

We do not skimp on our nutrition, and yes that is a pound of thick cut Maple bacon to start our morning

We then had lunch . . . homemade steak and cheese with grilled onions!

Here is a shot of the mountain in the back of Norway Lake.

Hehe, what a great adventure! I only know ice fishing from movies like 'Grumpy old men...' In Germany it's seldom so cold that large lakes freeze in winter.

look at you making a grand adventure of it.. 
my dad was a big ice fisherman, i've always had a fear of being on the ice, even tho where i lived, we had to cross an ice river in the winter to get to the bigger towns..

Sir now I know for a fact that you are not playing with a full deck 😉
Actually this is cool beyond words. Kudos to you for trying this expedition. Of course the cooking on the ice puts it way over the top. Looking forward to see if you even caught anything.
