The Winter Road LoomsDad and I have been following the weather closely in the north country. Our winter road travels will begin soon after the shows. As of right now our journey north will begin on February 9th. NW Ontario has had bitter cold for the past month or so and the winter road should be open for business shortly. As usual, we will be transporting 13000-15000 pounds of materials. A new screened porch for SW Lake, several new 16x8' floating docks, and 2 new boats are just some of the items we will be hauling.

The winter can be a deary time for most fisherman. For me I enjoy several outings of ice fishing, however I truly enjoy the open water. As a remedy to the cold, I would like to post some great nature shots we received this winter from a gentleman named Dan Probst. Mr. Probst traveled with Dan Gapen Sr this past August and was a member of the film crew. Enjoy the pictures and we hope to see you at the next sport show.

the right camera filter is applied

They are edible but extremely tart
