We also spent a day riding snowmachines to Red Shirt Lake. 1.5 miles down the trail Rhett broke a chain. Travis and I loaded it up on a sled and I pulled it deep into the woods where it couldn't be seen and taken. Ema hopped in the back of the snowmachine sled and Rhett took over, riding Ema's machine. I drove while Bekah road on back for the next 8.5 miles to the Team Davis cabin to have lunch. Team Davis tried ice fishing for Pike but had no luck. Bekah read through the cabin's log book and she said the only talk about catching fish were in the summer time. This was the first time I have been on the lake since I was a kid. When it was time to go, it was apparent that "Team Davis" (consisting of 5 kids, 4 adults, and 2 dogs) had too much stuff for their 2 snow vehicles and a Polaris 120 (kid machine) to carry. I ended up with 3 kids, 1 adult and 2 dogs in the sled towed behind my Tundra. I also had 1 kid in front of me and Bekah on back. Quite a load! Travis also hooked up a sled with some gear and Ema rode with him on his machine.
Kids also raced this last weekend and a youtube video is on the bottom of this post.
All in all it was a fun ride to the lake and a great time at the island with my parents and brother's family. Looking forward to the rest of the break!
