wi-fi hotspots?

10 posts in this topic

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 found out that the Holiday Inn also has wi-fi.

Thanks for the replies guys.

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

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Hey eyes one thing nice is you have reveres to help clean out your holes

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
