I got one:

My favorite Ice rescue story.
One winter we get a call of an overdue ice fisherman. The wife was worried her hubby has a pretty set routine and comes homes when he says. We get the basics, finishing buddies phone numbers, truck ID tags, where does he fish from what areas, any bars he might stop at etc.
So myself and 3 other hop in the icetruck and towing our 14ft aluminum just in case head out to the local hot fishing spots.
We pull into a local DNR boat launch and it s dark and empty....however we do see one truck parked in the shadows. We get closer and sure enough we get a hit, this is our truck. But it's dark and getting kinda late maybe 9-10pm hubby shade he'd be home around 6:30 or so. We don't see anybody around so we gear up and head down onto the ice. As an ice crew 3 go and 1 stays back with the truck and radio. Myself and 2 others head down the frozen river.
We come up on an ice shanty about 100yards off shore and give knock and a "US Coast Guard"....
Out stumbles a this old man in his 70's with his winter coveralls down to his knees and we can see into the shanty and he is in there doing the mess around with some other ole' lady.....we all have to keep it locked from busting out laughing...the man shuts the door and pulls his coveralls to an appropriate height and we go on to tell him in a lower voice that momma was looking for him and worried so she had us come looking.
We have to tell her we found ya to but the rest is his business.....we got our perts and he went back into his shanty.
The look on that old mans face when he was presented with his drawers down with 3 USCG officers at his shanty was priceless.....
The crew laughed the whole easy back to the station.......The End.


Next......

No good sea stories here, but I am going TDY for about 60 days down in kentucky next week so I can't wait to come back and get the Per Diem. About 4 years ago I installed a Rough Country 3.25" lift on my TJ and its seen better days, about once a month death wobble is knocking me off the road. After I get back i'm looking into a new lift, I've narrowed it down to either RE, RC,Teraflex, Full traction, and TNT Custom. Each a long arm with about 4-4.5" lift, TNT only if I can beg momma enough. I really like the Rubicon Express, only a little bit to weld which I'm trying to find a local shop to do. Then ill have to get the SYE, Tom woods rear driveshaft and exhuast. I'm pricing out local shops to do the install just for ease of setup with the long arms and all the adjustments that need done. Long arm will also being amazing on these rough Wisconsin roads. It's like I offroad everyday to work.
