Put all the open water gear away and prepped most of my ice tackle and jigging rods.
Might re-spool my frequently used tip-ups but I plan on starting out jigging first (less gear to carry).

I have a pond up in southern NH that might have safe enough ice by the weekend, if the forecast temps hold true.(highs around freezing a couple days and nights in single digits.)

I am a legend in my own mind!

On the ice,it is great to hear nothing besides the blade cutting ice. No fumes, no choke, no pull start.

OK once I'm ready you got first dibbs... it's a 8" STX powered by a 2 hp techemseh about 5 years old... It has a power head cover that zips up over it... I added a muffler guard ( after burning my $300 ice suit) I've got a spare carburetor and multiple re build kits for that walboro carb... I'm running a Zam carb.. on it now because IMHO it is better suited ( used on Oregon chain saws)for cold climates than the plastic made in Pakistan carb ( walboro)... I've got spare blades and enough oil for a few years supply... Speaking of Oil.. this engine has only had Amisoil synthetic and I run it @ 100:1.. the oil and gas can as well as a 10" auger extension all are going with it..

I'll be looking for $300.. this thing looks and rund=s better than new... when it "officially" goes on sale I'll post pictures in the proper forum..

A good run is better than a bad stand!
