[QUOTE=100MPH;20655285]The Skidozer will be there for the Pre-Clowder scouting event on the 20th. I will pack the usual supplies: sea foam, anti-freeze, mechanics wire, chain saw, tow chain, hacksaw, etc....

I plan to be up north for an early am departure.

Kristi KT-4 where would you like to meet on Saturday? Early breakfast/coffee to determine the plan for the day?

Anyone going out on the 21st?

Regards,
100MPH[/QUOTE

An early breakfast/coffee sounds good to me! It doesn't get light here until about 7:30 am or so.... Guessing an early start would mean to meet there at 6:30 am or so?

Searching the inner web I found two places that could be viable for breakfast;

Mike's restaurant opens at 7:00 AM. (This has been very good in the past)

Breakwater restaurant pens at 6:00 AM

Both places are located on US HWY 2 in Ironwood MI

Regards,
100mph

Flying from Boston to here is much more difficult than I would have expected? Don't think the logistics are going to work out in my favor here....

Brainerd is relatively close, so If we need to secure a couple donor cats....., I mean Brad is probably chewing some canned beaver tail in Florida or Arizona, if we bring them back full of gas........

Not all his cats are orange but......

Epic snow year, Great People, get over here and make it more epic(er)
has Brad and or someone from MN Outdoors ever attended the clowder

The main hubs are:
Chicago (5 hr drive)

Minneapolis (4 hr drive)

Appleton and Green Bay and Wausau are big regionals with dailys out of the Main hubs.

I can grab you (and up to 13 more people) or leave a car for you at Greenbay or Appleton. (hell it might even be a loaded truck and trailer)

We chose Duluth for the best flight times, shortest drive and price from the left coast.

Man, I wish I had more time off and could drive out with my machine. Flying in still much better than staying home.

Here is hoping, the calls yesterday involved cones. Hubs. Nuts and alternators..... "doesn't this pontoon just slide off?"

Ironically, today's calls included another Firearm themed Forum Forum member.... He is not in an asylum, He is just trapping and grooming away all alone in the wilds of the eastern UP.

I did my best to pitch the hard sale, Might need a Drifter to make a phone call and extend an invite, You know, a peer to peer conversation might go better than a Gizmo invite...

MN Outdoors:

This year a midwest clowder coordinater who is also a silent member here @ FF has launched a medium to low pressure marketing campaign. Her success has increased exposure and impression points are climbing daily. I received some packages of support in the mail yesterday.

I have been hassling MN O for years about attending and perhaps sponsoring to no avail. this year the tides have turned!

Thanks MN O for the support!!!!!

I am hoping to use the sponsorship to lure a Trapper out of the Wilds of the YOOP, An accomplished Snow cat restorer probably could use some encouragement......

Tiger themed ammunition is the HINT, guess the FF user and win a prize.

There are daily flights from MSP and Chicago to Ironwood on Air Choice One.
