Just put our 5th wheel in storage for the winter and I am thinking I could use a trip or 2 more, especially now that gas is getting closer to reasonable.

How bout a porta potty a 5 gal waste bucket and some potable water? I'm leaving on the 29th to camp and deer hunt around Wadena area.Camper Cabover popup has a heater and the buddy heater will come with for COLD weather just in case.

I gotta go cause I saw soooo many deer a couple weeks ago in only 4-5 hrs.intensive harvest area and some freezer fillins! Last minute decision before firearms season opens.Last time I was the only archery hunter I seen and a few bird hunters also wondered why there wernt more bow guys with so many deer seen.

While I am sad the camper is put away for the winter, that only means that ice fishing is that much closer smile

we have lots of fun as a family with the camper, but I'm ready to put it away when its time too.

Invite some buds fishing on local lake, build a campfire when you get home, sit and drink beer while talking smart. If you do this once a week, it will wean you off the normal summer routine by the time a fire no longer keeps you warm. (Thats when icefishing begins) grin

We haven't camped for a month and a half, and I am already looking forward to Memorial Day.

Take a 6 and a radio out and listen to a ballgame in the camper. I like to keep a spare beverage in the trailer, you know, the kind that no one counts you having, but that's over since the fridge was cleaned.

I don't have a camper yet, but the wife and I plan on shopping campers this winter. I'm a tent camper so my season is done for a little bit. I still on planning on doing a trip or two for winter camping. I really want to try a BWCA winter trip. We will see about that one though.

Have a brother that used to do the BWCA winter trip once a year. He seemed to enjoy it. Nice, quiet and no bugs!

powerstroke, we use to tent it also. once you have somr of the conveniences of a camper the tent will go in the back of the closet. go check out the RV show this winter in the cities you can get afeel for whats available.

I agree, I used to tent camp, and after we got our pop-up this past spring, I will never sleep on the ground again. Pop-ups on HSOforum I can't mention can be found fairly cheap this time of year.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
