15 posts in this topic

Hi All

Had a great 10 days off grin

Spent the first few days at the cabin. It rain,b ut that was very OK. We got caught up on some very much needed rest. It cleared up on Sunday so spent the day at the beach, north shore style. laugh even got the yak out on the "Big Lake" crazy

Then headed to Ely - but took all back roads . Went up from the cabin to the edge of the BWCA and then then headed west and inland. Was a terriffic time. We where able to kayak a few lakes. Caught 3 eyes, total not enough to feed a 5 yr old crazy

Got to Ely Monday Night. We have a friend who is the Excutive Director of Camp Widgi, which is on the far north end of the North Arm of Burntside Lk. We stayed in the Directors cabin Monday through Thurs night. I fished Burntside a few days, caught quite a few rock bass, but couldn't get the eyes to bite.

Donna and I also paddled a few other lakes. Same story, rock bass and smallies but no eyes. I wasn't fishing real serious these days, we where just out enjoying the day and the great outdoors grin

Tami,

Just so happens that my family and I were having dinner two tables over from your group. We were there for Mom's 60th B-day. Good eats and a terrific sunset!

Which day did you golf Fortune Bay? My dad, two brothers and I played on July 4th.

Didn't do any fishing though. Too many work projects at the cabin. mad

Wellesy

Wellesy - to bad we had no idea what each other looks like, its always fun to chat with other FMers.

We played Fortune Bay on Sat. it was beautiful, a great course. And the Legends Sun morning.

Isn't Burntside Lodge wonderful? Where is your cabin ?

I too spent the weekend in Ely. My little girl and I stayed at Wanderer's place with him and Sue. First trip to Ely for the fourth. They sure do a great job with the weekend. Best parade I have seen in years and the fire works were great as well.

Glad to see you had a good time as well. Your pictures are great. Sorry to piggy back on your post. wink

Question... Where did everyone go??? The town was packed on the fourth, but the lakes were empty. Found that kind of strange.

Tami,

Looked like one sweet vacation! You did an excellent job capturing it.

I think I'll have to try the Burntside Lodge sometime.

Thanks!

    • Peppers are back in the cold smoke. Breaking out the gas smoker later for jerky, not having a dehydrator think I'll put the peppers in the smoker and dry them out that way at around 130 or 140 degrees after the jerky is done. Not sure if it'll work but WTH. 
    • As the Chronicle reports, Pelosi spoke out Tuesday, essentially begging people to stop talking about third-party candidates and messing up the polling, saying that a narrow victory in the general election "would deprive Hillary Clinton of a big mandate that I think she should have going into the White House and that would be helpful as to how we go forward."   This is just how Del, D2E, Hillary, Donald, and Nancy Pelosi feel about 3rd party candidates.  Nothing personal.  
    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.
