  1. From an excellent trip around the Silver Bay area!!!! Scenic overlook north of Silver Bay...the 1st photo is looking straight down! A different vista looking at Lake Superior... Intersection of the Tomahawk and North Shore State Trail looking toward the Trestle... A great trip...Kudos to the Silver Bay snowmobile club!
  2. You know, you should watch your words. You never know when you're going to need a larger woman at the hospital, the DMV, doing your taxes, driving your children to school, the judge when you're standing in front of the court...you get my drift. Oh, and by the way, how is your hairline????
  3. Hello. I just entered into the world of Truck Camping and I don't have the foggiest idea how to prepare my camper for the winter season. I purchased it used and there was no instruction manual with it. My camper will be stored outside but it will be supported on heavy duty saw-horses as well as the four jack-stands that are mounted to the camper. My biggest question is placing a tarp over the top and how to keep it taut and snow free. Any other tips and tricks would be appreciated as well. Thank you in advance for the help and if there is a previous thread on this subject please feel free to direct me there. Pete
  4. Tried that, it didn't work. It just kept floating by. Now I'm in the process of running it low so I can perhaps "stab" it in the bottom of the tank.
  5. The gas gauge float came off of the cap on my Ski-doo and I'm wondering how to capture it again. It's just bobbing around in there and everytime I see it, it can't be grabbed with my stubby fingers. I filled it up to the neck thinking that it would float to the top but that hasn't worked so far. Any ideas? All the other parts of the gas cap I was able to remove with a magnet...I just can't catch this bugger...thanks-Pete
  6. Hello, I'm looking for some ideas on how to tow my portable fish house out. It's a 6 by 8 suitcase style (the blue one)and of course all the other gear as well. I have a Ski-Doo Grand Touring or Formula DLX to do the job of pulling it out there. I haven't been able to find any tubs large enough to fit the fish house. Thank you for any ideas you may have. I should also add that I'm a new sled owner as well so all of this type of info is new to me. Thanks again...Pete
  7. Quote: I look for the Rodents to finish 3rd at best. Duluth will challenge them for that spot. Duluth ain't gonna challenge anyone this year. 25 players on the roster total with 4 goalies. Dressing at least 10 true freshmen every night. Saw both losses to Bemidji State....Oy Vey! What a year to buy season tickets! Yuck!
  8. Can I? Thanks.-Pete http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB66&Number=485329&Forum=All_Forums&Words=&Searchpage=0&Limit=25&Main=480235&Search=true&where=bodysub&Name=16600&daterange=1&newerval=52&newertype=w&olderval=&oldertype=&bodyprev=#Post485329

    Naming ANY dog Elvis is a bad idea....and I have the proof. I have a Beagle named Elvis (ain't nuthin but a hound dog). One night just before bed around 11pm, dressed in Holey, cut off sweat pants, the kind that leaves little for the imagination and the kind your wife is always trying to get you to throw away, my Elvis took off out the back yard. Living in a smaller town with larger yards, there I am running through the neighborhood calling for Elvis. The neighborhood started calling too....calling the police department. Pretty soon, here comes the our City's finest and me without any identification! Of course he doesn't see the dog and thinks some crazed fellow is searching for the "King of Rock-n-Roll". Best thing I could do is just walk right up to him and tell him yes I know this looks strange however my dogs' name is Elvis and no I don't have any I D and would you follow me around with the patrol car so I may perhaps spot this invisible dog. He says sure and after about 20 more minutes I corral the dog and start carrying him home. (about three blocks) He follows me and I wave from the picture window so he knows I'm truly the owner of the house. Scenario two.....picture the large fenced in area in the back of a certain very large home improvement store where "you save Big Money". I'm back there in the van with the aforementioned Elvis to pick up some gutters and as I open the back gate to load my purchase, whoosh, there goes the dog. I can't catch him so after a while I'm standing on the bundles of lumber hollering for Elvis as the other customers start cringing away from the "crazy" guy making a scene on the pile of 2 X 6's-green treated. It wasn't doing the lumberyard any good for business so here comes the management to ask me to leave....I explain my situation and they say "sure buddy, we believe you, uh-huh," so I load my purchase with the sinking feeling that I've just seen my dog for the last time. I drive to the gate to have the employee check my purchase and there is the hound getting a treat in the little guard "dog" house! Now anytime the wife sends me to the store for another of the "honeydo" projects of course the dog gets all excited knowing he'll get a treat from the gang in the back and pouts if he doesn't get to go. next week....chapter two-Elvis and the Sunfish or "I didn't know Beagles were diving dogs?"... -Pete
  11. I'm p1$$ed because of the Miss Duluth comment! 20 years ago, my wife was Miss Duluth and with the aid of the scholarships won during that pageant, she now helps keep children alive! Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the White Sox the only team to have "thrown" a world series? 'Nuf 'Ced.....

    Yankees are always looking for Pitching....hmmmmmm
  13. Another thought, during some of the most prolific years of Babe Ruths' career, the 1920's, alcohol was illegal. (prohibition) Yet never was his records called into question. Sadly we'll have to let the records that have been and will be set during this modern era stand if we continue to hold George Herman (Babe) Ruth's exploits in such high esteem. Burleigh Grimes was allowed to pitch into the 1930's if not into the 40's with his primary pitch- the spitball- after it was banned by MLB in 1920. (he was grandfathered in because he was already a major-leaguer when then ban came into effect) MLB always has been and always will be behind the times in regards to regulating for the "good" of the game. -Pete
