Default Losing it!!!!!

So I had a nice long post written out, but hit the back button and lost it, what BS. ANyway I am going nucking futs waiting for ice season. Ive tuned the auger twice, went through gear 3 times. Got really bad when I bought 2 snowmobiles last week. Still have stuff to get ready but want ice to get here now. Feel like an addict or something. I started buying new jigs and the such end of July.

Here, I created a timer, for when I feel I will be fishing for lakers. I know golden gate and and some other high places freeze sooner, but I want laker fishing. Dec 2 is the date I picked as I think Either the weekend before or after will be a safe bet, though a real cold spell would be great get us on ice by second week of november.

Anyone else feel this way?

Heres the timer.

Ha ha! Yes, I know what you mean. I doubt I will be on the ice as early as you, though. It's usually closer to Christmas for me, at least for lakers. Antero should be ready by early December for slimers.

Guilty! Ice Anglers Anonymous.
I am a ice head (similar to crack head just no drugs needed) and found myself in the basement last night twitching uncontrollably after watching the simulator on my Marcum LX-5. I think it starts in the garage every evening when I pass by the atv tracks and ponder what date I should put them back on. It might be all the staring at the new insulated Ice Armor bibs on the computer here at work though too!
I feel your pain brother.

I can't wait either. Luckily I've got hunting season coming up real quick first. But after that that's all I will be thinking of. Thanksgiving weekend I will be out on the ice though. Of that I am sure!

Nope, I left 3 hair dryers running in the yard last night to make sure nothing froze...
