Wow! It is hard to believe it's been 5 years. I remember hearing the live traffic report on the radio before they knew who it was. Is that Tom Chorske with Herb in the second to last photo?

Wow, has it been 5 years? I remember hearing about it on the radio up at the cabin. We came home the next day and passed the spot, kind of eerie as it happened just the day before and all the police paint, tire marks etc. were all still there. I have a vivid memory of a hockey stick stuck in the ground in the median with a Gopher hat on top. Very sad day.

The man was a legend and lives on.

So, are they putting the cables along most of the interstates in MN (in between opposite lanes) because of this tragegy?

No.... they are doing it because it helps with head on collisions by keeping vehicles from crossing the center line and into on coming traffic.

Keep the thread on topic please.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
