Ely to Tresle Inn

10 posts in this topic

Family is thinking about going to Ely over presidents weekend, wondering how far via sleds it is to the Tresle Inn from Ely?

Im looking for time vs miles, I realialze it depends on how fast you drive but ball park would be great.

we have some time to get more snow before we head up, but does anyone have currant trail/snow conditions?

thanks.

Well since no one else is giving any ideas. I would think on a nice day with the family making stops at outhouse and warming houses it maybe about a 2.5 to 3 hrs there. But the last time I did it was a full blown blizzered at night and took us about 4hrs since we could not even see the trail ;)

Its about 65 miles (I know you said time but.....) from Ely to the Trestle.  I would say leech is about right on for a nice family ride.  Its one of my favorite sections of trail, never know what you're gonna see along there.  Seen moose, fisher, ermine, deer and lots of wolf tracks in the past.

Xplorer do you remember if the Crooked Lake lodge still sells gas? I'm not sure where MCI will be able to top off to head back up to Ely unless they head down to the Shore. I don't think there's any gas in Isabella the last I remember in the winter?

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
