    I doubt there's any ice in the bay yet, just curious if anyone things it'll happen this year? I missed my yearly trip up there last year and I'm itching to get back up there.

    Outstanding Ike! Wish I were up there right now. Were you in the same area I ran into you and your buddy a couple years ago?
