Is there anywhere that I can connect to the internet with my laptop to keep updated with this board. I am staying at Sha-sha for the week starting this Sat.

I'm not sure if there is anyone out toward the lake that has access. (I'm sure there is somewhere out there, by now).

There is a coffee shop in town called Coffee Landing Metro that has computers in the shop for you to use. I've used the internet in there before, not sure if they have wi/fi though. And if you're into coffee they have the best...get the Rainy Lake Blend. They are on the corner of 3rd Street and 5th Ave. in downtown. Brick building with bright yellow chairs out in the front.

There is a coffee shop in the Super One store and they might have wi/fi. That place is farther down 3rd st. across from the football stadium.

There is WI-FI at the chamber of commerce building. At the three way stop (4th and 3rd) same road going towards Canada.

I believe that you can connect from the bar at Island View Lodge next to Sha Sha.

Go to Woody's pub. Get a cold beer (this won't work without it). Take the beer and your lab top out to a chair on Woody's deck over looking Sand bay. Crank up the lab top and enjoy. When you tire of this go fishing with Woody.

If Woods has wi-fi out on his deck, then that's the first place I'd be! grin.gif

Woody's Pub is 2-3 miles west of the Falls in the little town of Ranier. As you're heading out of town toward Sha-Sha, there is a big billboard type sign on your left welcoming you to Ranier. Take that left. Stay on that road and you'll see the Ranier Muni on your right, Grandma's Pantry on your left (great breakfasts---huge pancakes!), and Woody's will be up ahead on your right-hand side. As they say---you can't miss it. In fact, if you keep going straight, you'll drive right down the ramp into Rainy Lake. grin.gif

      15-23 inches in most areas  Don’t drive through the narrows on blue headed towards little blue you will sink your truck.

      So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
