MS 150 Ride is June 6-8

6 posts in this topic

I'm participating in the MS150 ride this year for the first time. Is anyone else gonna be there?

I been trying to find new ways to be active and the charity kick has been strong this year. Some friends from my fire dept are on a team so I'm riding with them.

I can't post a link, but if anyone would be interested in sponsoring my by donating to the MS society I would appreciate it. My email is epfd217@gmail.com

I can send you the online link to donate to me.

I hope to see an FM'r or two on the way.

Good for you, I sponsor a guy that I use to work with. He has been retired for about 10 years and has been doing the ride since he retired. Good luck to you and your friends.

Powerstroke,

Thanks for riding! My 17 year old daughter and my mother-in-law both have MS, so we really appreciate everyone who takes part in events like these. Could you post your team name so we could donate on the Minnesota MS Society HSOforum?

Our place was a stop on the TRAM when it went through southern Minnesota many years ago when my in-laws were still living here on the home place. It is a cool thing to watch.

Thanks again for riding!

Carolyn

Thank you so much fishing tech and Carolyn for your support. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter and your Mother-in-law. My best friend's mom has MS and I know a couple other people that do too and its a very tough condition. I hope they are feeling well.

I did a nice 20 mile ride yesterday and I'm planning a 40+ mile ride for friday evening or saturday morning.

You can find me by name or by our team. My name is Andrew Hamilton and our team name is I-C Butts for the Larkin MS150 ride June 6-8.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
