As we all know the ice gets pretty thick around Bayport in the winter and vehicle traffic is common all the way across the water. My question is does anyone ever see vehicles cross the river just across and north of Afton where the water is even wider than Bayport? I was out there on my sled Sat but refused to cross. My buddy did it several times but with no other tracks in the snow I wouldn’t. I did ride on a plowed road for a ways in that area on the Wis side so obviously it gets thick near the shore but what about the middle and the Minnesota side? I’m not looking for someone to say it is safe just wondering if it was common like Bayport or if the ice in that are is notoriously unsafe.
