yomap Would take a pretty big ice pick to do this now. Or a fan. ~

Oh, how I'd love to take the kayak out for a spin today. Sadly, it appears I'll have to wait for the weather to break. Winter went into full swing the past few weeks, and the only way I'd be able to paddle on this lake now is on skates.

The photo is from New Year's Eve. I spent my last day of 2014 inside this yellow tube paddling gleefully around the lake. When I'd gone out a few days prior, it was unseasonably warm. But after a week of snow and sub-zero temperatures, the water was beginning to freeze over. It didn't matter that it was bitterly cold. I felt only warmth as I sipped from my cup of bliss.

At first, I couldn't find a point of entry. The ice that was creeping out from the shoreline had already grown too thick. I thought it would break when I plopped the kayak down on top of it. No joy. And again when I added my weight. Uh-uh. Instead, I sat on the frozen bank scooting forward and back on my keister inside the kayak and paddling on top of solid ice. Finally, I gathered my gear and walked the edge of the lake until I found a spot to get on the water. This is that spot.

Now the lake is frozen over completely, and that day keeps me sated for the time being. Such a blast. Navigating around thick frozen slabs. Bumping into mini-bergs. And the best. Pile driving through and breaking apart the thin sheets of ice just forming on the surface.

yomap badlands meets motor city ~

Enjoyed an impromptu trip to Detroit this weekend with the yofamily.

Had a real nice time catching up with this guy (@sweatengine), who was in town for the Auto Show. Kevin had work to do, so we didn't have a whole lot of time, but it was good all the same. By the by, if you like origin stories, there's a pretty good one about how I first met Kevin a couple summers ago at a random outpost in South Dakota. To read about it, go to #yo_tomes and find the photo of a desolate gravel road, located a few rows up from the beginning of the gallery.

Good to see you, Kevin. Looking forward to that return trip to the Badlands.

Then, to top things off, I had another nice visit with @meether369, who joined the yofamily for dinner in Greektown before we headed home. Thanks for taking the ride into town, Melissa. Great to see you.

And, to highlight their contrasting styles in critique, I yield final commentary to the yolittles.

yo7: aww...I wish I could look at this all day long.

yo4: so, when you die, do you still have your phone with you?
