    Heck I used to take the trash cans down on garbage day in shorts and barefoot walking in the snow!

    Honestly though as I have gotten older my body just doesn't like the cold so much anymore.

    Down here it was 68 degrees and beautiful at around noon. By midnight it was 25 degrees and windy!!!!! 21 degrees at the house when I got up for work this morning. Hell I don't know if got that cold all last winter!!! I actually never wore my "Winter coat" at all last year, just a fleece pullover.

    I think the cheese is a Green Bay Packers thing.
    Locals around here call people from Wisconsin "Milk Duds", like the candy.

    Traverse city folk are actually trolls, since you are just below the bridge. The flatlander term is reserved for us folk in the flat lands of Michigan. Not sure of where the cutoff starts.

    -33 degree's on Camels Hump this AM, +14 here in the valley with a high of 30 forecast for today. Sunny and nice though.

    I put the flannel to bed years ago. The new fabrics are the cats ass!!!

    When I'm out ice fishing in my Ice Armor gear I only wear a Long Jon type poly base layer,which look and feel like flannel/fleece, black cotton jeans, my tournament shirt(thin poly too), a hoodie then my Blue Suit, which is a Gor-Tex jacket and bib combo, non insulated. The Grey Suits are insulated. That Blue Suit will get me down to 0-to -5 before I need to add another layer. This Ice Armor line is great, very light and much warmer compared to wool, flannel, and most of the traditional fabrics ,,and half the bulk and just as warm as wool should it possibly get wet somehow,,I've been out in sleet storms for hours ice fishing and stayed dry as a bone in it. They make camo suits too, which I have 2 of also, one swamp grass pattern, the other, Real Tree.

    I fell through the ice 2 years ago at last ice in my Blue Suit,even then I only got a little wet around my mid section, and ended up going to a different spot with safe ice and finished off the rest of the day of fishing without getting cold, about 4 hours worth. Only one foot got cold sense that boot flooded, but otherwise OK.

    Can those woollies and get modern gear, it's WAY BETTER. Lots of construction guys around here wear that Blue and Grey Suit too, there great for construction workers, loggers and equipment operators that have to be out in all kinds of weather. They love um too.

    That's been my go to sense I was introduced to them 5 years ago when I started Pro Staffing for Clam Outdoors and they've never failed me once even at -30 with blistering winds and white out conditions. And when you help out a guide,, the weather is not a limiting option, it's the job! Blizzards above the ice don't mean shit to them hogzilla Crappies and Gills waiting for ya down below! That's when you just flip up the Genz thermal Fish Trap, turn on the Little Buddie heater, pull off the jacket and fish in comfort watching the Vexilar and YANKING AND CRANKING,,,,MAN all this modern gear is THE BOMB!!!!

    When we used to fish Grand Traverse bay at first ice ,we all had " Ice picks" sewn to our coat sleeves to help drag yourself out of the water. What the hell was I thinking?

    You bet Bradrock,,I don't leave home without them in early and late season ice, they hang around my neck and if it's iffy,, a life preserver and throw lines too. Never know where you'll find a current making thin spots those times of the year.

    They have floating ice fishing suits now too,,Strikers for one. But they have slightly more bulk to them, but still not bad at all. Those would be nice for late season goose/duck hunters that are out on the lake well after the Fish& Game boats are out of the water. Safety first ya know!!!
