I took a header during an ice storm here in Minneapolis on Sunday. Kocked me out cold and I don't quite know how long I was laying in the street/sidewalk before the cops came and got me an ambulance. This photo was taken just after. It looks a lot worse today now that the swelling has kicked in :oops:

I could get behind that. Gonna be awhile before we have ice in Illinois though. Anyone want to post a list of the dates of the ice festivals for those of us too lazy to do it ourselves?...


Also, I'm looking for recommendations/beta for a couple nights of backpacking and snowshoeing in the Porkies or thereabout in the UP, if anyone has suggestions.

Heading up to Nipigon to do some ice climbing in about a month. Quite excited about that.
Hoping the ice shapes up around here soon!
