No, just wanted to know your guys age and if you are still going thru it, around it or turning back? Are we learning anything with age?

I'll still go through it...but....someone else has to go first before I attempt it! Otherwise, I'll just go around..

OK, Thanks for clearng that up. Rough day here in the salt mines.

Well, I'm 41 and if I know what's in it, how deep it is, or don't mind fixing the machine when I break it, I'll go through. But I usually will go around so long as there's a legal trail to do so. Otherwise, I'm like you and turn around and go back.

I'm 50 only one way for me, through it! thats what it is all about for me. exploring new country, I can always clean later. Although when the wifey is with and she see's the big ole mud hole with a smirk on my face the byotchin starts lol. She has since learned to keep her mouth shut during the mud hole crossing!

Guess I am not making myself clear today. When I put 20-30 I meant anyone in there twenties or thirties. Sure didn't want to leave anyone left out.

Helmets, HELMETS we don't need no stinking helmets!

Seriously I broke my jaw in three places in a little motorcycle accident, my jaw was wired together for 6 weeks so your point is well taken. I always wear a helmet on the motorcycle even in 105 degrees temp and when on snowmobile. Well be wearing a helmet while ATVing from now on. Thank you.

Looks like a place I know in Pine county just east of Kerrick and Duquette in a unnamed state forest? Judging by how wet it is must have been early spring?

I love to see pictures like this and have been in every one of these places myself but there are alot of antiwheeler people lurking on this site.

That being said sparkyaber: Yours is about 2.5miles west of Hwy65 about 4 miles south of McGrath ! Did you go over to your right (west) into the trees? Its about 4.5' deep in there! Ive been there!

Anbody else go any pics to post come over to Atv Nation dot com and post them, if they are in MN I bet I can guess where they are from!

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
