BK , I've seen those houses on the canals in Canada on the Detroit river. Very comfortable. The canals were made by Al Capone during the rum running days of prohibition. I have ice fished in those and had plenty of spirits to keep a glow on. Jim

Beekay

You wouldn't believe the "Bob houses" they use here. They have all the comforts of a proper Man Cave that's for sure. Yes it would be cheaper to buy a fish dinner but I suspect I know which you would find more fun to do ;-)

Rob , I knew BK would know, this is her stomping grounds in this beautiful state..

BK ,Thanks for the info,
2 feet thick would do it for sure. Another reason I don't like ice fishing is spudding a hole through the ice to go fishing. I'll go and buy a fish dinner and stay warm. Jim

Janet , probably when they start using float planes , hahahaha Hugs dear friend, Jim.

jetmech7

BK , I agree with you , plus I don't like ice fishing.

What a fascinating photo Jim - there's a lot going on there:))) Thanks for the info - and thanks Beekay:))))

Beekay

nonnalouisa and Jim the ice thickness would vary in different areas of this huge lake. I understand they wait until the ice in this area is 2ft. thick before they use the landing strip. I believe the tv show (article) was on New Hampshire Chronicles, you may look online for it.

That is different Jim. What an amazing runway! I wonder when they decide it's not so safe any more!
Thanks and hugs dear friend.

I was just watching a program on this last week. This area is VERY popular with retired pilots and so many of them have small planes. Great shot of the lake and mountains...but I do prefer the other 3 seasons views over this one ;-)

Lyndee, Lots of light planes there . I wonder if ice fishing is the attraction ?

jetmech7

smllpkg, I wonder if they fly in to ice fish?

lyndee

That's one busy lake.

Look at all the ice fishing going on around the lake, too.

nonnalouisa, I just saw this on the news this morning , so I really have no Idea. I hear its a 3000 foot strip. What are you flying? Enjoy your warm weather.
There is a lady "BeeKay " who is from New Hampshire , you could ask her , she's very knowledgeable.

nonnalouisa

Awesome! How thick is the ice? I'm a pilot in FL, not planning to fly up, but just curious. Thanks!
