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!

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
