The weather has been very mild for the last couple of days and it is making it difficult to walk around out on Lake Nipissing. The Ice Auger Project is still working. People seem to be taking some of the solar lights and breaking bamboo poles, but I guess that is going to happen regardless. Any way, go down and see the installation if you get a chance. van-schie.
PS. I’ll add some more images in the next couple of days.
I’ve augered 700 plus holes and installed a lot of bamboo sticks with solar lights and day glo paint. The project is starting to take shape. If you have a chance you should come down and take a look tomorrow. It is also very interesting at night. van-schie.
Today I will auger holes for the bamboo poles. I will also be subdividing the larger area into ten smaller areas to create a series of pods. I will try and post video of the actual ice augering. van-schie.
Tomorrow I start to auger ice holes for the project. All the solar lights are siliconed to the bamboo poles. All the day glo paint is applied to the bamboo poles. I received the flagging tape. It seems that the building of the installation is pretty well all that is left. Come down to the water front if you have a chance and see what is going on with the Ice Follies. van-schie.
