There used to be a picture on the Internet somewhere that showed a bunch of RV's and trailers in the water when the ice broke and they went through.
Maybe someone can find it?

Years ago we always considered it to be the official "First Day of Winter" when the 1st car fell through the ice on Lake Wausau, (central Wisconsin).

We used to drive on the ice all the time when I was growing up in sunny southern MN. We could never understand why the ice fishermen got so upset about us using their ice shacks for pylons when we set up our ice gymkhana(sp) courses.

Nope, not mine nope nope!!

I was never out on Lake Superior with mine and you know that picture can't be on Superior no way. On Superior you can't see that side from this side, if you know what I mean. Besides way back then, when I was on Superior it was with a Prowler Travel Trailer.

I have yet to be near any lake with ice on it when I have owned the MHs I now have.

You know...

One would think that one's Signature picture should be changed at the same time as one's Avatar picture if one is to expect another one to believe one as to why one bought a class A motorhome immediately after one had to walk home soaking wet from one's winter fishing trip, leaving one's aforementioned signaturily enshrined former class C partially submerged at A Lake That Shall Remain Nameless except to one's insurance company who coughed up the dough for one's aforementioned Class A as shown in one's Newly Posted Avatar pic.

Wouldn't one? Once?
