uncle fester goes ice fishing
There's nothing like a little fresh air.
walk to the outhouse
The outhouse was 100 yds. away, about a three minute walk. Otherwise, we used a bucket with a bag and a cheap toilet seat. It makes one appreciate the wonders of indoor plumbing.
focused on fish
We came here to fish. This is what it looks like.
We use a vexliar, a "fish-finding" sonar. It doesn't catch fish for you, but gives you a nice picture of their activity when they're in the area. That's the vex in the lower-right-hand corner.
An interesting sunset effect.

shack number 7
Our home for two nights, the lake, and some sky.
A little experimental goes a long way.
