Well after this weekend I will be caught up on the stuff I had to get done. My sled is in the trailer ready to go and one way or another I am going to find some snow somewhere. I don't even want to think what a 2 year old sled with 200 miles on it is worth. And I have a 95 Jag and a 98 ZL 440 in near mint shape with low miles I'm keeping for vintage sled rides some day. LoonASea you up for a snowmobile trip in the near future? Like to go somewhere during the week to avoid some traffic and bumpy trails.

You guys may have to hit the UP to find some good snow after this?  Which I had some weekday time to go with.

We may get an inch of snow with this weather "cant call this a storm" The iron range is already reporting 7 inches of snow ,,, May have to hit the taconite and run to Ely 

 

 

Now the wait for temps to get above 0 with a cold snap behind this snow fall

Hey LAS, drove by your house Tuesday morning taking the sleds to RJ's, but all was quiet so didnt stop.

Both sleds in for recall work (gas tanks prone to crack and leak gas on the engine and cause a fire). Got called this morning, wifes sled was fine but my tank had a crack in it and they have to replace the whole works:crazy::crazy:.  Of course none in stock so won't be done til late next Friday.

Like you, I havn't been on here in quite some time, had a really slow day at work today so browsing many of the "old sites' I used to peruse often. 

Junior has B-ball games this and next Saturday, but I'm open the weekend of the 27/28 if a ride is in the works.  Or could maybe do a day trip next sunday if the sled is done.

Leech, we gotta figure out how to do this "retirement" gig so we can ride weekdays too :D:D

Poorly.

The days I could get out it was blowing 20+ and unfishable 99% of the time.   I can't tell you how many days I headed up 21st street to work shaking my head cause it was a perfect day to be out trolling.  And work was the worst I've ever had last summer so that didnt help.

 

I saw some nice pic's of your Isle Royale trip on GLA......soooooo jealous;)

How was your summer in the west end of the Superior?

How about giving my kid a high school diploma and a college degree in something useful so he can hit the workforce;)

 Once those two things are done, then I am done LOL:D

OK, OK.  He's only 15 but I can wish can't I.

Recall #17-724

2007-2009 Cats of various types.  About 20700 units total.    918"incidents" reported and 6 fires. No injuries reported:whistle:

A co-worker of mine got a notice in the mail about hers as an original owner.  I bought our two machines a year old from a resort out in Colorado thru a guy in the Cities so I'm not listed with Cat.

Wow, that is a pretty large failure rate!  Even though my sled I just picked up is like new with only 122 miles on it. It's a 2003 so I'm good. Thanks for the heads up.

 

I really hope we can get a bunch of people together for a ride sometime this winter yet! :)

I had to bring my 2008 in for that recall, I waited  till riding was about done for the year before I had it done. doesn't matter much now since I traded it off this season for my new machine that has a whopping 5 miles on it now, great timing for a new sled. hopefully it will get used plenty next weekend, its looking promising.

Leech just remember that Trainwreck feels like a bowling ball in your stomach when you head back out on the trail ,,, Thats fine if the trail is smooth ,,, a real [email protected] if its kinda bumpy 

 

 I may head to Wisc if the snow heads east during this next snowfall

    • Nope can't say I have been sick. I visit my parents in the old folks home so maybe that will be a good test. I may need to find another chunk of two to last me the winter. I kinda enjoy being in the woods and looking for it.
    • Make sure you use shielded cable vs wiring rca ends onto standard 16 gauge wire other wise you will have interference from your other 12 and 120 volt wiring.  More insulation = less btus needed. At the very least I would spray the floor. Going to want to go 30k if you aren’t going to spray foam the walls Depends on location. 30” is optimal. If on the side of the house versus back, I would go 24” because the are nicer to sit on. I have a 36” for my fold down top bunk and it works well to sleep my 7 & 8 year old Are they nice? Yes. Are they a nessecity? No. I don’t have one and moisture has never been an issue. The only prob I have is cooking bacon in the house.... I love bacon but when u cook it in the house it lingers for days, but not sure the vent would totally solve this LED!!!!! You need to decide whether you’re going to have a generator and how long you want to run it. If you think that you’re going to constantly run a generator then you probably want to have more 120 V lights in the last 12 V lights. If you’re not going to run a generator that often or not at all then you would want to cut down in the number of 120 V lights.  Three way switches are in valuable within a fish house. Being able to switch on the entire bank of lights by the door and also by the rear bunk is very nice when you hear the rattle real go off in the middle of the night. I have three double pancake LED lights in my house that can be switched on and off individually one light or too light per fixture. I then ran the input power through a three way switch so that I can shut each light down individually or shut the whole works off as one. Hall lights are also very important, we used LED Leison plate lights and they work awesome
    • Been sick at all since starting to use it?  Friends of mine have been using it for a few years religiously for one reason or another.  They keep a jug of it next to the coffee pot.
    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
