After finally breaking down and buying another wheeler for the wife and daughter, I am glad we did it!!! They had a lot of fun saturday. We rode by akeley from 11:00-5:30 and there was no whinning, complaining etc., at all!! My 4 year old loves hitting the mud puddles and the 8 year old likes the "jumps". Now I just have to get better with directions. Got lost at the end and a little nervous as we were down to 1/4 tank of gas. Just have to replace the rear wheel bearings and back up this weekend for some more hopefully "warmer" riding!!! I'll try to post some pics.. laugh

chas, great to hear they had fun. I have Deer Hunted and ridden wheelers up by Akeley for years. Great spot and not many riders out there! Pick up a snowmoble Map at one of the stations in town and have it on the wheeler. Thats a big area up there and you can get lost without a map. There's a new little bar about 3-4 miles up hwy 64 out of Akeley back off the highway you can ride right to on the wheelers for lunch, kind of nice and I think they open up at noon. Make sure you have a ceil phone with little kids to call help and check for service when you get there. Have fun! smile Leech~~

Oh yes the Stompin Grounds, that was the name of it. Pretty nice place for being out in the middel of no where! You can also ride into town, but I hate riding the ditches that far with kids hanging on the back!

chasin, My kids are all grown up and off on their own. I sold one of my wheelers, and kept one but do not really have anyone to go riding with. If you wouldn't mind a third wheel that knows the trails up there like that back of my hand. Maybe I could hookup with your crew to go for a day ride sometime this summer? I keep my wheeler up at our camper in Brainerd so it is always ready to go and only a hr from the Stompin Grounds! smile Leech~~

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
