Anyone hear of any news regarding any changes/renovations to the portage?

I haven't heard anything...have you heard rumblings of something? Oh, and by the way, do you have the original title for your old trailer? I went to do the boat the other day, that went fine, but trailer, of course missing a document.

Hi Hemlock. I've just heard rumors about different things that may happen, but haven't heard anything confirmed.

I just sent you an email to the "sunset husky" address. I believe I sent you everything a few years ago. Let me know.

I went over the portage on Thursday. Same old portage with no recent updates. The brake no longer works but that only means that you need to control the decent of the boat back in to the water buy keeping your hands on the wheel. The cable's a little frayed and the bunks need new carpet but it got us from one side to the other and back again. I still get nervous when I am coming back to Sabaskong Bay though.Always wonder if it will still be operational.

Was over the portage on saturday. you are right on the brake that no longer works. Get a boat going down the other side and that wheel looks like a fan spinning so fast. Gotta wear gloves so you burn your hand trying to slow the wheel down. Never fails at least whenever I been there the trolly is always on the other side. It was like that both times the other day. Oh well like mentioned before it got us over both times.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
