  1. McQuiods on Mille Lacs rents sleds. https://www.mcquoidsinn.com/snowmobiling/ Like Leech said, that $200+ is a pretty standard rate.
  2. The wife and I did this too. All comments are pretty spot on. I can only add that used radios or walkie-talkies to communicate during the procedure and that worked well for us....
  3. The Blaine event is small and to the point. All of the main players are there. The parking lot seemed full, but the turnover of folks leaving made it a non-issue for us. The St Paul show this weekend coincidenced with the Disney on Ice shows at the X and something going on at the Children's Museum. Booth ramps on the river side of Kellogg were full before the VIP, 11am doors opened. We ended up parking 6 blocks away in a hotel ramp. We were yelled at by a cute, mid-40s aged gal with f-in heimers about our inability to "read something," probably the crosswalk lights. There were no cars around, so we proceeded to cross. She was doing at 45 coming at us...... The VIP ticket line was short. It took longer to walk around to the back ticket booth then to purchase. However, the line to gain entrance was a block long, wrapped all the way to the front skyway, 1,000 or so deep. It went pretty fast though. Odd was the security and metal detectors to enter. One security guy told us to take our out guns and knifes in addition to keys, phones, vap sticks, and lighters. I have not been to the show in 3 or so years. Wow how things have changed. The show was good. Ran into a lot of personalities and what not. We were out for lunch at 1pm and back around 2, when the isles started filling up.
  4. I plan to attend. Nothing to purchase. Did some buying at the Blaine Hard Water Expo. I will be just looking for OEM stickers for my new sleds.
  5. Congratulations Len. I did this diet 1998 to 1999 (18 months) taking off 50 lbs, from 285 down to 235. In maintenance mode since then. This morning the scale said 238.
  6. I watched pieces of the races on TV. It sure looked like there were plenty of open seats. Is that normal?
  7. Lots of sun. My vegetable gardens are lacking due to maturing trees.
  8. I can confirm that Glyhosphate looks like it will kill it, non-selectively. Sprayed some last weekend, checked them last night, and the plants are browning up and drooping.
  9. I have not tried to treat with herbicide, but the plant looks like the herbicide would bead up and drip right off due to the waxy coating on the leaves. You may want to try adding Spreader-Sticker to the mix to get the herbicide to stick better.
  10. That's it. Thank you. It is taking over our flower beds and landscaping. My granola crunching neighbor introduced it with all other kinds of out-of-control stuff and is now moving because it is "too much work to maintain." I asked them about this plant and they said, "it pulls pretty easily," which it does. Sharing a wikipedia link here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chelidonium_majus
  11. At first glance, I was going to ask if the circus came to town. LOL. Really, there is a bird visible there in the photo. How long has this arrangement been in place? I ask, since it does take awhile for the birds to find the new feeders.

    Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
  13. Be careful, these are legal for stores to sell but very dangerous to use. They are non-compliant with building codes.
  14. The cardinals, chickadees, and bluejays have been very vocal and active over the past week or so in my backyard.
  15. We have had a large flock of robins, come and go on our one of our crab apple trees for the past couple weeks. Saturday morning the chickadees and cardinals were singing quite loudly.
