Does anyone know the road number or have directions on how to get to Jones or the Jones Road Wilderness Area northeast of Kenora?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

coming from either the west or east take 17a, which is the kenora bypass off of 17. Then north on #671 (jones road).

Fishnut, don't know how far your going on it but that road can be kind of a nightmare. It is barely wide enough for 2 vehicles and is full of blind hills and curves. Just plan a little extra travel time, take it slow, and stay waaaay over on your side of the road in the curves and you'll be fine... Good Luck!

isn't the road that will take you to Grassy Narrows reservation? i remember a Jones Rd and yes the road has mucho curves and hilly. I was up there 2 years ago in the fall. I thought it was a fun road to drive but then I was following someone too. It is paved too by the way. Hey fishnut, next time you talk to dad ask him about it. and if you need to know anything else about certain routes in the U.S you can call me. lol

It is the road up to Grassy as posted here as I can see it on the map. I don't care how windy the road is, it goes by a lot of lakes that seem to be off the beaten path. I see it as a place to do some exploring, especially if I can get your dad to come along and make an adventure out of it for a day or more.

Should be fun.

Saw you leaving church today. Was driving Nessa's car. Went Saturday to my buddy's house and between 5 people we iced close to 200 sunfish and 10 crappies. Me and the Bug had our limits of sunfish by noon. Spent all afternoon today cleaning fish and cleaning up the mess. They sure will be good to eat though.

Took that panfish trip and did over 100 gills and 7 crappies for the day with 5 people. Bug really found the hot hole and her and I iced our limits by noon that day. Wound up with over 200 fish caught between all the people. Great trip to be there with the youngest daughter.

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!

    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
