Yeah its the Brainerd Ice Tournament. Do some youtube searches for videos, it's crazy.
We used to have keg party's on the ice up in Minnesnowda. We'd build a big ass bonfire and circle the trucks around it. Had to keep the keg in a truck and run the hose out the window otherwise the tap would freeze. Good times, drinkin beer at 20 below!:der::crazy::der:I've read if you do drive on the ice you should move your vehicle every 2 hours so the heat doesn't create weak spots in the ice.
we camped on the ice sanchez on back side of island back in the 80's, my ranger pickup with 4 wheel popup camper and buddys scout with 4 wheel popup, wasn't smartest thing I ever did, that ice was spooky. remember so locals buzzy thorough our campers with a snowmobile, that stopped when we did a little target practice with the 44 mag.....You can drive on Sanchez to........im pretty sure your buddy's truck wasn't a Stroker unless your getting 1990 mixed up with 1994 or 95:-X
