Ice Drivers

11 posts in this topic

After watching what those drivers do on the ice roads I think another interesting story line would be what the service providers do on Upper Red. You guys go through the ice, hear and see some strange and intersting things, a lot of them humorous, scary, or otherwise. Throw in some folklore for good measure and you got a show!!!!! I'd watch it anyways.

Dirty Jobs? How about crawling around in rice paddy mud up to your waist fixing equipment, handling seed rice that smells just like a nasty pig barn,scrubbing fish blood and poo out of the boat carpet, hauling poo bags all winter, mixing massive amonts of bear bait that just plain sticks to everything, cleaning scum/seaweed and dead shiners out of the minnow traps/tanks. I know dirt well, and poeple always ask me what it is like living the dream. confused.giflaugh.gif

Not as bad as the diesel mechanic that showed up wearing his leather work boots. I didn't notice he had them on until the entire boat had a grease stain at foot level.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
