I did up until I was about 13. My buddy had a forest behind his house and if you walked about 5 minutes in, you'd get to a decent size pond. You never knew when the ice was going to be good and when it was going to be bad. Usually near the end of winter we'd be playing and someone would accidentally jab a hole in it and the entire thing would be covered in nasty pond water. That was when we knew to pack it in for the year.

These days I live in a different city and outdoor rinks are built all over the place every year. In a way I miss the pond, but the rinks really are so much better.
