I joined them for breakfast the next morning at the Grand View Lodge, where we were staying. These cleats are made by Yaktrax, and they pull on over the bottom of your shoes, where their triangle-shaped steel teeth bite into the ice. The freedom reminded me of when I first learned to ride a bicycle. Even far out on the lake you had to be aware that you could get run over from any direction, like in a mall parking lot.It’s a pleasant place, and bedbug-free, unlike the Washington, D. After breakfast, I sat at a picnic table by the lodge and put on the cleats and then strolled out onto the ice. With my cleats I walked on the sheerest, slipperiest ice as if on my own front lawn. Ice bumps crunched under the tires, providing aural warning.White tents like the kind used for outdoor weddings rose on the ice about half a mile from shore.I parked my rental and slipped and slid out toward the tents in my running shoes. They got the idea for it in 1990, as a way of making money for charity and livening up the off-season in this tourism-dominated part of the state.C., motel where I had spent three nights earlier that winter while attending the presidential inauguration and the Women’s March. When I traversed a less frequented area, I could hear how the ice itself sounded.I showed them the large, itchy bedbug bites I had acquired on my right shin as souvenirs of the new administration.

They banned it, and now we have bald eagles again,” Thomas said. “So what do you want: bald eagles and bedbugs, or no bedbugs and no bald eagles? It creaked and groaned, and twice it made a muffled boom that started the ice fragments rustling and tinkling with a sound that shot to the horizon like the trail of a rocket sled.The guy said, “Sure.” When they asked him where the best place for that might be, he looked at them and said, “Uh, anywhere.” So they drove a mile or so farther and started spinning the SUV all over, doing 180’s and 360’s and 720’s and so on, until they hit an ice rut and knocked a rear tire off its rim.
Strike Master, a maker of gas-powered ice augers, had provided 60 machines.
Folks with snowmobiles and ATVs were standing around, waiting until they would be needed to cruise the ice and refuel the drilling teams.
Some snowmobile conversation: “I was goin’ along on my snowmobile on Tomahawk Trail by Lake Vermilion, doin’ about 70, at seven o’clock in the morning, and I look up and here’s a DNR guy with a radar gun—up in a tree!
"But I broke up with her after she printed that book because I was hurt to be an unwitting part of this slutty package," Van Winkle revealed. We were in a relationship yet it looked like she was screwing all these other people." For a NSFW picture of Vanilla Ice and Madonna from her book, click here.
