Hey Harvey Lee

6 posts in this topic

Megan got her first win ever in the karts today at Waseca, classic drag race to the finish line with Megan pulling ahead at the flag. Krissy got wrecked in the 1st heat race, broke the nose cone and the nerf bar got bent into the rear tire so bad the rim got bent, but with a bunch of help from the other Arlington kart families, we got her out there for the feature in the back of the pack and she worked her way up to 3rd. Dan Griep won his class too! Good day all around for the Arlington racing gang.

I don't have any close up pics of the karts themselves, but if you do a search for kart racing in Minnesota, there is several tracks in the state:Arlington, Blue Earth, Tanners Lake, Atwater, Ceder Mills, Golden Spike Speedway, Alexandria are a few of the dirt tracks that come to mind. We race Arlington on Saturdays and Tanners Lake on Sundays. Spendy sport to be in for just a trophy, but after a day like today, it's all worth it just to see the grin from ear to ear on the kids, and the adults as well.I'll take some pics of the karts this week and post them.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
