Lots of people unloading sleds, some good deals...some not!

I came home with only one purchase, of all things...a reciever style bicycle rack for my truck!

I was on my way home from Ely yesterday and couldn't believe the number of sleds heading north. Would have been a good time to be there.

Was only there on Saturday. Buddy got a new seat for his sled that was in almost new condition for $75. I bought a pair of Klim Gor-tex boots for $145, which is only $25 off, but more than paid for the admission and a few beers. Lots of stuff to be seen, seemed like more sleds in the ditch outside of Haydays for sale than in the actual swap, but I was not looking for a sled, I was looking for parts, so maybe that is why it seemed that way. I left before the rain on Saturday and didn't go back for Sunday, but I have to think the rain drove the prices down on many items. Plenty of new stuff vendors to look at too. Might have to look into the adjustable handlebar riser by Rox, allows you to lower the bars for good trail riding comfort and raise them up for power riding in the powder. Haydays is kind of like the fair as far as people watching goes, all walks of life. It amazes me the money that these young kids are spending on their trucks to "pimp" them out with the lifts, rims, paint, ...ect. I was like that to a certain extent too when I was young, but man, I didn't have a bankroll big enough to do what it seems every young gun up there was doing......but the girls didn't look like they do now back then either, so maybe I am just getting old....... Bring on the ice and snow!!!!

Talked to my friend who was down there and he said it was one of the best years ever, he and another guy sold 5 sleds 4 tracks, 3 engines and a few boxes of misc. other parts. They were all done before the end of the day on Saturday!

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
