Delorme has great mapping software and now sells a GPS that will hold all of their map products, Arial, USGS, Sat. The screen on their GPS is kinda small and overall the unit hasn't impressed me for navigation. However the ability to view all the maps while in the field is pretty cool. Also fun to play with at home on the computer.

It shows citys and all the roads and a lot of public lands. It has elevations but aren't very useful on a gps size screen. The roads aren't always up to date. Doesn't show all the logging trails but isn't too bad. I guess I haven't seen anything better yet out there. Also has business's in it. Kind of nice when traveling to do a search to find nearest restraunt or gas station and be told where it is. Or I use it to find a specific address too.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
