    I might go into withdrawl….I’ve been checking this site daily now since 2003-4, haha 😆 My wife and I get a laugh out of the titles of the morning SPAM, though I am sure having to remove it is no laughing matter….

    Drove our church’s Excursion (V10 equipped) on two separate trips to Mexico pulling a 24′ cargo trailer both ways. Plenty of power….guzzles gas, but plenty of power. Came in handy one trip as we drove to Albuquerque on our way to El Paso, TX- made getting up the grade on I-40 a lot easier, haha.

    My friends who operate PackSack Canoe Trips & Cabins (Ely,MN) will be there, great people. They used to be involved in Scouting in Winnebego Council when my dad was also a scout leader, and I was working at Ingawanis during my summers while I was in high school….which was “only” a couple years ago 😉

    I’ve only been to BWW a handful of times……and I work literally YARDS from the one here in Cedar Rapids. Honestly, I can make better wings at home on my Weber Grill, and for a fraction of the cost of their overpriced food. I never like to drink when I go out to restaurants, not only is it expensive, but that means only one of us (my wife and I) can drink- the other has to be the DD. So I would rather stay home, grill a kick A** batch of wings, drink ice cold beer from my own fridge, and watch sports at an acceptable volume which facilitates conversation without shouting, haha. 😆

    FYI…I have seen and heard A LOT of snows and blues today in the Iowa City area. Several giant flocks on the move.

    I was outside this afternoon and THOUGHT I heard them up here in Cedar Rapids. I got about as birdy as a lab when I heard them, haha. They must have been super high up, because I didn’t see them, but heard that squeaky honk of theirs.

    it isnt just Sheels. DU has a credit card through First Bank.

    I quit supporting DU a while back…..it’s nothing more than a huge money grab.

    MSR filters are my favorite. I like to use the gravity system when I am up in the Boundary Waters. But as I’ve said, the water we have here in our streams/lakes- I wouldn’t drink that stuff if you paid me because of all the ag runoff in the water.

    Honestly, I would rather bring water than filter out the water from our lakes and streams here….. Now if I were in say Boundary Waters….then yes, but around here you couldn’t pay me to drink that stuff even if it WAS filtered! I know that there are some higher end filtration units that can work well in third world countries, but if you are camping here in the Hawkeye State 99% of the time you are usually near some source of well water to draw from. Even in Yellow River forest, you can get water at the trailhead there and pack it in if you had to.

    We got one for Christmas…..it’s still sitting upstairs in the box with the receipt. We are not big into “fried” foods in our house. This contraption honestly reminds me of the whole “pressure cooker” craze on infomercials a few years back……just one more item to be sold on the garage sale come spring!

    Great story, like a lot of folks I was totally unaware that they had a population. Up until a few years ago, I never realized they had a moose season in North Dakota as well. A buddy of mine showed me a moose he had spotted in a prairie pothole while out scouting during duck season up there, couldn’t believe it! Not something I’d associate North Dakota with.

    Anyone have a tractor, a manure spreader, and a trailer full of hogs to turn loose. Asking for a friend 😆

    I was just up in Ely back in September when I took my sister on her first BWCA trip. We saw the brochures at the International Wolf Center and decided we both gotta do it at some point….we’re not getting any younger, haha. Looks like a lot of fun!
