Very Soon Now.


Just checked the ice on loon lake... 4" of clear black ice has formed (and is still forming) in the last 3 days - unreal... but it has been -18 to -21C up here. Just getting ready for the first snowkite sesh this afternoon on a 250 acre field. YEAH!
I'll keep ya posted on the ice and snow conditions up here.

yes yes YES. Please post when conditions are good Rob. This fall was not good (for my schedule anyway). My kites have cobwebs. My bar is rusting.

Well, the snow is great... and I just got a call from a 230 lb. guy who just caught a largemouth bass while ice fishing on 2 inches of black ice. Thats a tad thin by my standards but a couple more cold nights and we'll be ready. Loon Lake has 4.5 inches and I've walked around it (nervously). As soon as the wind picks up though, I have a huge field we can kite on. I'll let ya know.

Just came in from a soggy session on Loon. It was nice to get out there finally. We did get some wet snow that will freeze up later tonight leaving a nice crust to hold an edge with.

Hitting the Upper Rideau tomorrow (Sunday) 7" of solid black ice and god only know how much snow will accumulate. Forecasting 12-16 knots NE for the morning... which is perfect for up here, then switching to west in the afternoon... which is even"perfecter" for Forresters Landing!

Re: Very Soon Now.


work seems to get in the way of kiting for me emoticon I'm going to try this weekend, or any windy days through the holiday.
