impromptu chambers gathering

From the sounds of things, and volume of PM's I've gotten on chambers for this weekend, it sounds like there may be quite a collection of forum members up there this weekend - Mostly on Saturday, but some on Sunday. Perhaps we should have some way to recognize one another? Any suggestions (name tags aren't visible from a distance).

If you see a red 89 honda civic with U of Washington and U of Wisconsin stickers on rear window, that's mine. I'm 6' call, red hair, black pants/boots, forest green parka and hood or black hat with ear flaps. Shoul have blaze orange hand warmer tube on my belly and pull a jet sled. During summer, you might have seen me buzzing around to various lakes with a 14' canoe on top of the civic in Fort Collins and Loveland.

I'm in for sunday. Heading to dowdy on sat but I'll be at chambers on sun. I have never been to or fished chambers before. Can you drive all the way to the lake or do you have to hike in. If so how long. What works well up there in regards to takle and bait? I'm all for catching trout and would love to go after some lake trout but don't know if I have right stuff. I have a couple ice rods of different action but none are very long. Does line matter? Don't care what species just wanna fish. Sorry about all the questions, any help is much appreciated.

I drive a tan 94 ford explorer with a "tivo" bumper sticker and ski rack. I will be wearing black pants, a white and blue jacket, and if my trip on saturday goes well there might be a young lady at my side.
Sled?

Any recomendations?

I have never ice fished that far from the car before. But that won't stop me!
I think I'll pick up a sled tomorrow. When I get to the lake the first time where is a good place to start. I've never seen the lake before so description is key.
It's not set in stone but it's looking like I am going to have to go in to work tomorrow early. So I think I'm going to miss the unofficial chambers trip. I don't want to but in order to be back by noon doesn't make it time effective. I think I'll head up thursday hoefully I can steal all the tips you guys post from fishing tommorrow. But seriously have fun up there guys and cuttroat keep on eye on that auger!
