what to expect

6 posts in this topic

Heading up to Red Dot, Mooserun/Moosewalk trails in a couple weeks. Wondering what to expect for trails? Similar to any others in the state such as Nemadji, or Akeley, Spider Lake? We are looking forward to checking them out. We are heading there instead of our usual trip to the Akeley area.

Trails are scenic near the lake. Not much for challenge but the scenery is really nice, especially on the Red Dot where you can see Superior from the overlooks. Sometimes there are a few puddles to splash around in but not much. There is also one really nice spot on the Moose that overlooks a huge valley. This one has about a 200 foot vertical drop just beyond the shelter. Nice place to stop for lunch.

I'll add if you have a pack rod, bean lake is along the trail and has some trout in it.

And there's lots of places to take pics along the way like these.

yes it is!!

After seeing those views I just hope I don't get distracted and drive off the side.

Thanks for the responses they help put my mind at ease over choice of riding area.

Don't forget your camera! Trust me this is a beautiful area to ride, not to mention the people of the Silver Bay area have always been friendly and helpful to me!

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
