Take and post more pictures. Maybe you will get some of us more motivated.

Is there any motels near or not far from the trails up there you would recommend?

OK the forecast threw a wrench in my plans for saturday ,,,So hopefully I will get some time off on friday afternoon and get out and ride in the fresh snow 

 

Walleyehooker  there are no lodges/hotels with good adjacent trail access in the Duluth area   ,,,there are some up the shore with better access to trails at Two Harbors and further up the shore ,,,Im just glad I live up here so I dont have to trailer too far ,,but there are times I wish I had some one to ride with each time I hit the trails

To bad Randy, lets set some kind of date for a group run to see who all can make it. Maybe with enough notice more could come.

I think I'm good with either of those as well. Wonder about Explorer & Gary, does BD still have a sled? Maybe Walleyehooker can find a room up there or load up on my trailer on the way by?

I was gonna take the sled up to Ely and hit Burntside for lakers this weekend but the weather has me cancelling that too.

I am looking at maybe heading up there next saturday and spending the night and make it a "fish n sled" weekend. Fish during the day and sled after dark.  We'll see how that works out tho.

Starting on Jan 30th I'm only gonna be able to ride on Sundays.... Junior has B-Ball tournaments every saturday thru the middle of April

Boy it would be nice to live close like you guys and have to drive home the two hours! :( Good thing I don't start work on Mondays until 1:00pm and can sleep in! :) Any of those days works for me. Would be nice to get a few sleds on this ride. Anyone else out there with a sled can tag along! ;)

Sounds fun! Where do you all meet?

Still hashing out dates and details but it maybe either above Two Harbors parking lot or above Twig I think. I'll let the guys that live up there post meeting details once we can pick a day and time.

That would be ok but since I'm in Brooklyn Center it maybe easier to swing by you? Your still out past Dayton right? But what ever would work.

I'm still in the same place. I thought maybe you went over and up 35 or do you go up 169 and cut over.

When I go I take 610 over to 35. If I picked you up we could cut over at hwy 10 or 95 up at Princeton over to 35.

Either way works for me if this pans out. I am so bored with this winter I went out and bought another Harley yesterday. I'm starting to think its going to be an early spring/summer.

OK, something just came up last night and Junior will not be playing in the tournament the weekend of the 30th (has a mandatory church confirmation deal that friday/saturday) so I can hit it on the 30th if it makes it easier on all.

 

If someone wanted to trailer to Cloquet I would have one spot on my trailer or I could load up with someone else and split gas too.   I can almost taste the Trainwreck :grin::grin:

 

I got 4" at my house as of last night.

    •   No expert here either but I've talked to a couple.    Would your new, expanded slab be conducive to making the addition another zone or zones?  You could maybe run that expansion off different lines from the manifold above the slab so you don't have to route and pour over seams.   Definitely insulate below with GOOD insulation.  As mentioned, heat doesn't really rise the way we think it does; it moves to the cold and the earth will soak it up.   Heating your loop would be cheapest with a natural gas fired boiler, propane second.  Geothermal is expensive to put in so your payback on a new system is long.  Air source heat pumps are great until it gets really cold.  In the end, radiant in floor is the most efficient way to heat, but yes, it's slow to respond.  But if your toes are warm, you will be too.
    • I appreciate the response, I take nothing personally and didn't mean to be snippy in my reply. There are a lot of great comments on here and I will keep you posted on what I decide. Thanks again. 
    • Ice is quickly thinning on those northern lakes that still have ice with dangerous conditions on most lakes. The Wisconsin River is now open even in its northern stretches, but ice chucks can be seen melting along the river's edge. The lower Wisconsin River has finally dropped to near normal levels. Some walleye and brown trout are being caught on the Menominee River both trolling and angling from shore. Low water and cool water temperatures slowed the walleye run so far on the Oconto River. Anglers along the Wolf River have been starting to catch walleyes. A few sturgeon have been seen along the Wolf River, but warmer temperatures are needed for the sturgeon to start their annual spring spawning run. Walleye and sauger action on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin is slowly picking up.The steelhead season opened on the lower stretch of the Brule River last weekend and anglers reported good successPhoto Credit: DNRSpring steelhead fishing opened last Saturday for the lower stretch of the Brule River and there were lots of fishermen and fisherwomen on the river many who had a successful opener. .
    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • 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)
