Polski glad u got her off
So for the last few weeks I've been trying to come up with a plan to get my shack off the ice. Truck and snowmobiles didn't have a chance so I went to plan C.
Got this guys number from Timberline and got it off today. Way more slush under the snow since I was out there last week, but he got it off in an hour. Nice guy and even helped me get it on my trailer. He said after tonight's expected snow and with all the slush he might be done. Tractor weighs 10,000 lbs and he's getting concerned about it breaking through.
We got our ice shack off yesterday. Thanks again to our guy who made a removal rig with a car hood and sheet metal rigging under each side. One snowmobile and a full pull driver, and off the ice. Anyone with rails, jack them and rig up sheet metal.
Still haven't got my shack off the ice. It's a long ways off any of the roads that were plowed toward the north shore. There is a lot of slush and water under the 2+ feet of snow. I drove out on a road last Sunday as far as I could get and walked out to it from there to see if it was iced in. That was one heck of a hike for this old guy but I made it. Shack was not froze in.
I went back later with my nephew on his snowmobile but it didn't have a chance to pull it out with the deep snow. The track just dug right down to the ice. I don't think two machines could get it with that much snow.
Not sure right now what I'm going to do. Maybe find someone with one of those ATV/UTV's with the four tracks that might have a shot at it. With 3 to 6"s more predicated for Saturday night I might just wait til it melts and take it from there. If the DNR gives me a fine I'll just deal with it.
Thanks, to whomever plowed the roads on the lake.
To the plow guy that plowed out our shack....Thanks, you made out weekend.
If you have not gotten your shack off I would look ad doing it before all the water freezes. Snow is soaked after the rain and will freeze hard.
We are done for the year.
