  1. Heading out tomorrow with three of my nieces for a camping and fishing trip to Mille Lacs. I did this last year with one niece and we had such a good time I decided to include two other nieces around her age. We will be camping at Father Hennepin and doing two launches during the weekend. My biggest concern is fitting everything into my car but we will make it work. We will also be going geocacheing while up there. It is great to have nieces that like to fish and I intend to encourage that with all my nieces and nephews but like to have this special time to spend with my nieces. Hope to update with pictures after the weekend.
  2. Who had to change their plans?

    If I heard right, the email was sent out at noon on June 30th, many people from out of state were already on the road at that time. Sure they should have watched the news and heard about the shutdown but many didn't and were suprised.
  3. Kids and life jackets

    The rule at our cabin is that kids under a certin age are not even allowed on the stairs to the dock with out a life jacket. If they are on the dock even with an adult present they must wear their life jacket.
  4. I am going to have my cooling system flushed and filled and want to replace the thermostat myself. My car is a 95 Lumina 3.1. Now I have heard it can be a bit tough and am wondering if I will need any special tools or if the cost will be so low that I should just have the shop do it with the flush and fill. I have replaced the alternator and the water pump myself but don't want to get over my head with this since I have read online some of the warnings. Thanks in advance.

  8. My Wisconsin weekend

    It was a fun time, I too was very tired after the weekend but the highlight for me was catching Barbs shack before it blew away with her in it. Wish I could have had more energy but with the back and head injuries that I had and was taking meds for prevented me from being crazy at all.
  9. Congrats Lambjam for becoming a moderator.
  10. Weekend Report

    It was a blast on Red with Lambjam, we went home with fish and fish stories, which are true. So glad I met Barb and the other gals on this forum a couple of years ago. I consider them life long friends now.
  11. Garage Opener Question

    So, I live in an apartment and rent a garage. Had the original opener remote fail so they gave me a new one. The new one would not hold the code for more than a day. So they gave me a 3rd opener remote. That worked for a week or so and now has failed. My question is: is the problem most likely the remote not keeping code or the unit itself having problems? I am getting sick of the remotes being re-programed and then having to call maintance to come and open up my garage with the key because I can get in with the remote. Thanks in advance for your help.

  14. Curl up with a good book

    I found an author that I like, her name is Theresa Monsour. She writes about a female detective out of St. Paul. Another author that I really like is C.J. Box. I am all about the murder mysteries and devour them. Other authors are P.J Parrish and John Sandford, they too write about local crime fighters. Hope
