TCC for 5/11/10
"New" 2007 post follows below.
The Caretaker is officially on hiatus from his blog until at least the end of this week but most likely through the end of next week. However, he will still have the e-mails from 2007 posted every night at 9 p.m. EST, they will be going out via the automated system. If the Caretaker happens to take some photos and has the time to post them he will do so. For those readers who have relied on the Caretaker's notifications of new posts via Facebook, while he is on hiatus from his blog he will not be sending out notifications via Facebook for the automated posts from 2007. If you'd like, you can sign up for e-mail notifications by entering your e-mail address at left, it is titled: "To receive E-mail notification of new posts:" It is just below the Caretaker's brief profile.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:
Island Ice Report for 2/27/07:
Outside temp: 30 F
Ghetto temp: 68 F
Wind: little to none
Sky: dense cloud covered
The Caretaker went on a field trip today up Shelving Rock. He loaded up his sled with his backpack and snowshoes and headed out in the morning. It was a quick ski over to the East shore, and because of the snowmobile tracks up to the top of Shelving Rock it was a very easy ski up to the top, and the few times the Caretaker needed to walk due to elevation he didn't need to use his snowshoes because of the snow pack from snowmobiles. However, at the top he did need his snowshoes to get over to the lower side that faces the Lake. On the return trip down Shelving Rock the Caretaker strapped his snowshoes to his backpack which put his pack on his back, skis and pole under his arms and got in the sled and sledded down the mountain where he could. Quite a bit of fun was had by the Caretaker on this field trip. After the Caretaker returned to the Island he had some lunch then skied to his car to get his snow pants which he will need for tomorrow's field trip. After he returned to the Island from his car he took a shower using an entire 5 gallons of water, the Caretaker felt he was deserving of some pampering after having skied some 12 miles or so.
The Caretaker must keep today's IR short because he needs to get ready for tomorrow's field trip which will require him to be up and on the ice before sunrise.
Some questions for the Caretaker came in today, he will answer them sometime later in the week.
