"If Mr. Rugg is going up to see about having lumber cut," said Nan, "I guess there won't be much fun for Danny. Maybe he won't bother us at all." "He will if he gets a chance," declared her brother. "Danny's just that kind. But we'll wait and see." Bert, Nan and Charley talked for some time longer about the trip to Snow Lodge, and then, as it was getting nearly time for dinner, they skated down the lake toward their homes. "How are you folks going up to the lodge?" asked Charley, before parting from Bert and Nan. "Oh, I guess father will take one of his big lumber sleds and drive us all up," replied Bert. "We'll have to take along lots of things to eat, for it's a good ways to the store, and we might get snowed in." "That's right," said Charley. "But say, why don't you and Freddie go up in our ice-boat, the Ice Bird? It isn't much of a run to Snow Lodge, on the lake, and it's good going now." "I never thought of that!" exclaimed Bert. "I wonder if father would let us?" "You can ask him," said Nan. "I'd like to skate up, if it wasn't so far. But I don't believe it would be safe to take Freddie on the ice-boat, Bert. He's so little, and so easily excited that he might tumble out." "That's right. And yet it will be no fun to sail it alone. I wish you could go with me, Charley." "I wish I could, but I don't see how I can. My folks are going to my grandmother's for a couple of weeks. Otherwise I'd be glad to go." "Well, maybe my father will sail in the ice-boat with me," spoke Bert. "I guess I'll ask him." Bert and Nan had much to talk about as they skated on, having bidden Charley good-bye, and their conversation was mostly about the new idea of getting to Snow Lodge on the ice. "I don't want to skate alone, any more than you want to go in the ice-boat alone," said Nan. "But maybe mamma and papa will let us invite some of our friends to spend a week or so at Snow Lodge with us. Then it would be all right." "It surely would," said Bert. The...Read Less
