They are starting to groom from Finland north on the NSST ,,, We could use more then the dustings of snow we have been getting lately to get the southern part of the trail set up

If by chance we get the lake effect snow they are forecasting I might be able to get a few miles in on the NSST ,,, might have to travel to get into some good snow but at least Im not coming up from the the cities

DNR snow map as of today. Looks like up by Finland and North should be good to go! 

I have the day after New Years Tuesday Jan 2nd  off of work.

What do you guys think for a ride on that day?  :)

May have to trailer up to Finland and take off out of the 4 Seasons bar?

I will be honest,,,, With the lack of activity on this site as a whole (besides the activity in silly town) I will soon be leaving this forum and frequent other sites that are more aligned and active to my interests ,,, This used to be my most frequented forum but changes  created others to flee and now its my time to flee also

Well you have my email address.

The sled forum and you guys that I have met and ridden with in the past years is one of the only reasons I hang in here as well. I know we can always pick up a ride over on the other sled site but it seems like most of those guy want to ride point A to B at 80 mph all the time. I actually like to stop and talk, explore the area and see the scenery once in a while when I drive 150 miles up to the North Shore to ride.

Keep in touch with Walleyehooker and I so we can tag along on a ride or two with ya! ;)

I got rid of my last sled about 16 years ago but if I still had one, this would be a trail I would like to ride. I keep saying I'm going to take my 4-wheeler up to that area and ride but it never seems to happen. :(

Only  a small portion of the NSST is open to 4 wheelers 

Yeah, I don't know what is exactly the NSST but I know there are 4 wheeler trails in the area that I want to check out. I didn't realize there were ATV trails up there until we were camping in Two Harbors this fall and we talked to some fellow campers who brought wheelers and were riding trails in the area.

I have heard of people doing Resort to resort or motel to motel rides along the North shore on wheelers in the summer or fall but not sure which stretch they run to do it?

Hey LoonASea and Walleyehooker what do you guys think about a ride on Tue Jan 2nd which it will still be a bit below zero or Sat Jan 6th when it is suppose to warm back up in the upper teens or 20's above Two Harbors? 

Let me know what you think?  :)

Yeah this riding season is suking big time. Rode around ice fishing a bit last Sunday. Looks like the following weekend of the 20th is another warming trend coming.

Not sure where that other retired guy Walleyehunter is?  Must have took for the sun somewhere?

 

I see the 20th is the HCS ride on the northshore. May be I'll have to come up and ride tail end sweeper, sweeper behind you!  :grin:

    • FL20,18,8 shot thru a Strikemaster hole in a Clam Trap after I get to the lake in an old Toyota because they're more reliable than Ford, Chev, and of course Dodge. Then I chop the fish up with any random new but 20 year old $5 electric knife from goodwill, then dunk them in the best shore lunch machine, the Fryin Saucer. Final cleanup is done by Sam's club house brand wipe(soft yet minimum Charmin balls) placed in the proper over the roll configuration. If you didn't have at least 4 fish fry's per month last winter, don't bother arguing!   That Helix looks pretty cool, but with 3 Vex's  I'm set for quite a while.        
    • Not to pick a fight with the fisherperson above.  But, I think Euro Larva work better then Wax Worms! 😕    ☺️
    • I'll just use Binoculars and follow you around.  There now Rick will come by and delete your funny little post too!  🤨
    • Now that the weathers had a chance to dry  I’ve headed out when I can after work and I have seen birds.  I can’t say if this is a peak in the cycle or not but it does seem better than last season.   Has anybody else been seeing a lot of Woodcock this year? I don’t shoot them because I don’t care for the taste but I have been seeing a lot of them
    • Apparently it's so obvious that Nils is the premier auger on the market that nobody even bothers to argue otherwise anymore! 😁
    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
