Winter Cottage Weekend

Boys weekend at the Steensma cottage! Us 4 original supertubers: me, Jason, Darren, and Evan, spent Saturday and Sunday bumming around our favorite lake. We had the unique situation of 50-60 degree weather and sunny with a lake frozen enough to walk on.

When we arrived on Saturday we took a nice run around the lake and then began “exploring.” Our explorations were relatively tame compared to prior experiences but we had fun climbing trees, venturing out on the ice, and just messing around.

As expected, Darren pushed the limits a little too much and partially fell in,

He then did a jig on the ice after washing up in the 32 degree waters.

We slowly walked further out onto the ice until we found a hole and could see that it was still 6 inches thick.

Darren stood on “the smallest continent” which was between 4 primary tectonic plate fault lines.

We then claimed the island by flying our flag (a rag we had just found) at the highest point in the tallest tree.

Later we drove to another lake and did more of the same.

At night we played cards, board games, pool, etc. EXCELLENT weekend. Only 2.5 more months until Memorial Day! 18 days until Florida!

your coming to flordia in 16 days and you haven't called me yet, you bastard. If this trip isn't solely to be able to say you've made love to your wife in flordia I'm gonna be pissed.

oh and if you deep fry garlic mashed potatos after they are cooked, its most excellent. Just don't leave it in for long, and scrimp a little bit on the water when you cook them the first time.

Excellent choice of photos. I must say though, I don't think I push the limit THAT much..
