We went over into WI last year and rode up to Superior WI on that side of the river. Crossed over to the MN side at Duluth and continued on up the North shore. Was a nice ride! If you go then stop at every other thing you want to see on the way up that way you can stop at every other thing on the way back down and you will see them all. We went kinda late in the year, end of Sept or first part of Oct, and it does get chilly up there that time of the year! We want to get our passports and then drive up and circle the entire lake up through Canada. Being late in the year we did not make any reservations and for the most part had little trouble finding a room the whole time we were up there.

Another ride that I want to do is ride out to the Terry Redlin art center in Watertown SD. There must be some other things to do in that state as well ;-) Take care and N JOy the Hunt././Jimbo

Think about leaving Fargo and heading up to Winnipeg Manitoba and then across through Canada to Thunder Bay Ontario. Then down the North Shore of Lake Superior to Duluth and back along highway 2 or 210 to Fargo.

A friend and I did the four corners of the state of Minnesota last summer. We started in south central Minnesota. Went to the southwest corner (Hills) then up hwy 75 to the northwest corner (Noyes). Over to Roseau where we spent the first night(618 miles the first day, all on 2 lane roads) Woke up the next morning to hail bouncing of the window of our motel room. We rode in between two thunderstorms most of the second day. We got wet a few times, and it was pretty cold (It stayed around 40-45 degrees) went through Intl. Falls, to Ely, Then down to the north shore. We wanted to get up to Grand Portage, then back down to Grand Marais before we stopped, but when we hit Grand Marais we were so cold that we stopped for the night. The next morning we went up to Grand Portage, then back down to Duluth for lunch at Grandma's Saloon. Down along the river to Red Wing. Spent the third night there. The next morning, we continued along the river to the southeast corner (New Albin Iowa Which is almost right on the border)over to Eitzen, through Caladonia, Lansboro etc. along the Root River (Awesome ride) Then back home to Fairmont by 3:00 P.M.

Total of 1695 miles. in four days. We didn't stop a to see many sights. We wanted to keep moving. This was an incredible trip. One of the best of my life. It was amazing to see how much the landscape changed as we rode. We are planning another trip for this summer, but we are not sure which way to go yet.

Good luck, and ride safe.

If I were you I'd go East at Drayton, go to Baudette, then North through Nestor Falls to Kenora. Alot better scenery then the Winnipeg bypass. However if you ever get close to Steinbach, Manitoba you have to stop in at the Honda dealership at the North end of town and take a look at their Vintage bike collection. It's pretty impressive.

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.
    • red wings are back, sand hill cranes calling  all kinds of Robins nice
    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
