Just Ride

3 posts in this topic

Monday 6-23-08

7 AM met my youngest son (30 years old) at Mc D’s in Hudson Wisc for a relaxing breakfast and talked-read the paper. Then road Wisconsin side of the Mississippi south to the Winona bridge crossing then into Minnesota and back to Hugo, Mn. We stopped at wayside rest in Prescott on Minnesota side, stopped a wayside rest and took our leather jackets off really enjoyed the picture quest river vistas, stopped in Stockholm for a coffee and fresh bake goods and a shop walk through town and the park, stopped at This Old Bike in Pepin Wi looking at new old motorcycles and bike stuff, had lunch in down town Wabasha Mn, stopped in Lake City Mn at Wild Wings (which to my surprise was closed in January), stopped at Prairie Island casino for gas and lost 120 gambling in the blink of an eye. 250 miles on a beautiful motorcycle ride, lots of sun (my arms are red and turning brown), my sons good company on his new 2007 Yamaha Road Star 1700cc (and he even let me ride it) If I ever get tired of this or don’t enjoy it any more there is something wrong with me.

Those are the days that a man will remember when he is no longer able to ride, and the days the son will remember when dad is gone! N Joy every one of them to the fullest and try to get as many of them in as you can! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Cool!!!

I did that ride down to Wabasha last week, then rode down to Alma yesterday.

Today I am taking my Cousin down to Alma.

295 miles yesterday & probably the same today!

Hey, there are some awesome side roads, A to 395 north of Maiden Rock and Buena Vista Park above Alma - can see forever!!!!

Anyone been on those...??

Give 'em a ride!

    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
