This was the week I meant to do the 10 k. And it was going well. First we went out on this lake, I was scared to death, cos seriously you do not want to know what is on the bottom of that lake....if it was summer I would not touch the water with a stick.

Then we walked on this small river. Someone had been there before so we judged it safe. Then we went over some smaller lakes and then we went into the woods. How to get back? Oh let's go out on the lakes again but do it by this ditch. Well that was a mistake. Suddenly my entire leg went through, I could not feel the bottom. The ice was cracking, but I got up by a tree. This would not have been that dangerous. But it was -17c, we were more than 1 hour walk from home if we even found the shortest route. Lesson learned. Ditches suck. But no worries! I did not have to walk home in fear of freezing my toes off! We were 10 min away from a road so I called my parents who live in that direction.

  5. Oh, brrr, glad you got out of that safely without further issue. I'm always nervous about walking out on the lakes even if it has been deemed safe. The whole time I iceskated on a pond I was secretly freaking out inside. :)

    1. I would not walk there again, that's for sure. Yes we went out on a pond yesterday but it felt pretty solid

  6. O wow B, that is seriously dangerous. And now I am curious about the lake you don't want to touch with a stick. A Nessy in there, or pollution?

    1. White phosphorus at the bottom, so stuff can blow up if you touch the bottom. The military dumped the stuff there, eejits

  7. Oh, wow - Linda, this sounds VERY dangerous! I'm glad you're okay, but you had better NOT repeat this stunt ever! I don't have to tell you what horrible death awaits under the ice on a frozen lake... I shudder to think. Once again, SO glad you're okay (and that you got to keep your toes, too - yay!) Take care, my friend!

  16. OMG. You're lucky your parents live close by! I cannot even imagine the panic I would feel had that happen to me.

    Good job on the fitness, though! Keep up the good work.
