I would guess then that the munger trail and north shore trail are just as bad huh? I'm coming home with some college buddies on the 20th to do some riding, but it's not looking promising! I thought we lived in Minnesnowta??

Im guessing munger will be bad in areas. Im not sure about the North Shore Trails. They had more snow than we did around here.

Most of the trails I've been on recently were running low on snow prior to the rain/warm up. I'm thinking without a significant snowfall, you'll be riding on dirt in the corners and where there is snow cover, it will be icy. I'm holding off until we get our Feb/March dump...

Ya pray for 8" of nice sledding snow. Then again it could slush up the lakes.

I think we will be riding again wink

Best way to put it is just think if the temps had been below 30 the last couple days. How much snow would we of had then confusedgrin

I am about to cry! I had to cancle my 5 day trip to the UP of Michigan. The resort I was going to stay at e-mailed and told me to cancle. I was out there 4 weeks ago and stepped off the trail into chest deep snow. I'm 6'4" so that is a pile of snow to loose in the last week.

This sucks.

At least the resort I was going to stay at is letting me rebook at a later date or get my deposit back.

If the UP is hurting for snow I'm sure Northern Minnesota is shot too.

Trails around Kabetogama, Ash River and I. Falls held up pretty well during the warm spell and rain...plus it's snowing now. At least a new 1/2" out there.

This was sent out by the Park Service on 2/10/09...

This past weekend provided vastly improved trail conditions with the warmer

temperatures settling and packing snow on the park trails. Slush conditions

have been minimized with the warmer temperatures, overland trail portages

were groomed and snowmobile use was occurring on all staked trails within

the park. A few large groups were observed enjoying the weather with

Crappie fishing and a BBQ lunch on the ice.

The arrival of freezing rain today should further pack snow down on the

trails and new snowfall expected the remainder of the week should provide

good riding conditions for the upcoming Presidents Day weekend. Plans are

in place for park staff to groom ski trails and overland snowmobile

portages before the weekend arrives.

North end of the Arrowhead (Orr to I. Falls) is in pretty good shape as it didn't get as much rain as to the south.

About an inch of snow has fallen today and it's snowing again now - more expected from Orr north. 3-5" possible. Groomers will be out on Kab and Ash River area trails in the evenings.

Check out the ash river - kab snowdrifters site for area condtions updated yesterday.

LET IT SNOW

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
