I know "officially" that much ice should be able to hold pretty much anything on the road .... but it's always best to be reasonably cautious.

I have never been 100% comfortable driving on the ice. You just never know.

It was only 15" total in both spots we fished at yesterday. I felt safe driving on but 15" is about my minimum even though I driver a lighter suv.

Default Keho

Just wondering if anyone has been out to Keho in the last couple days. I am thinking of heading out on Sat but have some kids so I am hoping to drive onto the ice. Is it drive-able yet?
