Support the Groomer guy Blog and videos

If you enjoy my blog, my videos, my facebook page, my articles and stories you can help me out by helping get new video equipment for shooting my videos. Making videos is a long and expensive hobby. I recently bought my first Gopro camera and now I need some accessories to go with it. I need camera mounts, Chargers, batteries and lot's of batteries as the cold eats them up fast. I need a microphone, cleaning supplies and more. Later on I would like to get additional cameras so I can have different camera angles.

If you are interested in helping you can email me at and I can send you a list of equipment I need. I will forward my mailing address.

You can go to my Amazon Wish List and see What I currently need. Click on the link to go to the website.

you can go to this link to see the list of stuff I need, every item has a link that takes you to a Online store.

Thank for supporting the groomer guy Blog.

I know why I love winter.

Yup, I know why I love winter..... Other then plowing the driveway there is no yard work to be done, every thing is frozen. Lol I have so much stuff to do in so little time.

I had to go rescue my Ice hut for a second time on Tuesday, I had got it unstuck the week before and I had towed it on the beach at the lake, well we got warm weather and the water rose about 4 feet in a week and it reached my Hut on the shoreline, the first pictures where sent to me when I was in Sudbury last weekend, 2 person went to the lake and sent me pictures of my hut in the lake, I told them I was not home and could only go Tuesday afternoon to pull it out.

Tuesday after noon I headed out with a friend to the lake and when I got to the lake I got a big surprise, my hut had started floating and it was now on it's side, what was suppose to be an easy task of just hooking up and dragging out was now a recovery/salvage task.   I put on the chest waders and walked in the lake, the waster was freezing and there was ice chunks floating around me.    I managed to push the hut away from the beach and turned it sideway to the truck, it took me a while to figure out what to do, planning my recovery, after a while I had to come out and warm up as the cold icy water was getting to me.   After looking at many options we decided to just hook it to the Ski that was sticking out of the water and hope the one under the water at the bottom would hook up on one the rocks under it and flip the shack up.

As you will see by the pictures my plan worked and the hut is now on dry land and safe, I don't think the water will reach it there now..... if it dose rise up to the hut well mother nature can have because I give up lol

Sunday Afternoon at around 2:00pm

Sunday evening at around 7:00 pm

Tuesday afternoon when I got there, was not expecting my hut to be like this
, it started to float and it fell on it's side.

The hut back on dry land.

The water reaching up to the playground

The water starting to flood the campground.

The water very high on the beach, you can see the 2 post for the volley ball net.
