Hell, I've seen Travis ride on water and he's just a dumb kid. So, whats the worries then? Now that I think about it, Bruno isn't doing so good at riding on water these days....

Water

Edit . . At 120 feet out from shore, it's only about 4 feet deep, so that's somewhat reassuring.


How deep was that creek a few weeks back?

Since I'm new to this, I am thinking of wrapping myself in bubble wrap. This will serve two purposes: A. If I fall off, I will hopefully bounce. And B. If I fall through, I will float.

These cold temps we have now should help the ice!

Relax, we'll throw you a rope, and besides, the cooler will also make a great flotation device, ...er, uhm, if it's empty.

Noobs?

It all sounds like a lot of fun . . . except for the noobs testing the ice part of it. Hows about the noobs man the campfire and have some hot toddies while we watch the old hands to see how it's done? Hell, we'll even take videos. Worst comes to worst, if someone falls through, they'll be a Youtube sensation for anyone that searches "popsicle"

Sounds like a plan. Trumposaurusrex can be the tire fluffer in between races.
