I found an interesting article about someone driving their pickup truck out on the ice to test if it was safe enough for ice fishing.
We’ll apparently it wasn’t.
MUSKEGON COUNTY MI WZZM13.com – After hours of pondering, it finally took an excavator to remove a Chevy Truck partially submerged in Wolf Lake.
The Muskegon County Sheriff’s Department tells WZZM 13 News the truck was removed after chainsaws cut away the ice that had formed around the truck.
Then, an excavator and chains pulled the truck out of the hole, and back onto a safer surface.
The weather actually helped remove the truck. The freezing rain anticipated for Sunday wasn’t as bad as expected, so further freezing did not happen.
The warm-up in temperatures may be to blame for the unusual sight Saturday.
Around 1:00p.m. a truck fell through the ice on Wolf lake.
There was a local ice fishing tournament going on at the time, but many wonder why the truck was there in the first place.
Some believe the driver was heading to an ice fishing spot.
Many think he sank because the warm-up was melting the once-thick ice.
From others, there is criticism, saying truck never should have been out there in the first place.
John Davis of Muskegon was one of many who saw the whole thing unfold.
“He was doing about 40 or 45, and the further he started getting, his truck started sinking down,” says Davis. “The next thing I know, his truck’s in the water, and they’re bailing out of the truck.” Read More→

Everyone is always talking about the ice being too thin.
Are you ever worried that the ice on Fox Lake may be too thick?
Get one of these babies and you will never have to worry about that any more! If it looks a little heavy, don’t worry because you could drive a Semi on ice as thick as the one in the movie below.
