I would like to apoligize as I will be mostly off line for the next week or two.

I just moved and the phone company needs a 911 adress to hook me up. Well the new place doesn't have one yet so I need to call the county...but not until after the sheriff department puts in their two cents so the mapping guys can come out and map the new road. Of course now you have to name the road before the county can make it a road so they can asign 911 numbers. Once this is done the numbers have to be registered...then...the phone company calls the county to verify the adress and 911 number. Then I can apply for new service that should take one to three weeks to hook up.

So after I call my rep who calls congress then contacts the president and notifys the govener to parden my computer and house so I may have internet I will be back on line and trying to answer questions as the ice slowly creeps across the lake.

Until then I will keep highjacking wireless bands and try to pop in every couple days.

I'm getting closer!!! I have an adress with 911 numbers and everything, now I have to meet with a guy to make sure they can get the service in, then the crew comes to run the cable and I have to meet them....then the last guy comes to hook it all up. This should take two to three weeks and I will get to meet the entire phone company! wink.gif

SOON very soon. Looks like Monday we will be returning to our regularly scheduled programming!

Probably a good thing as I have not looked out from under a welding hood in a couple of days anyways. No time for internet or TV sure makes for alot of time to build super~plow trucks.

Heck I even read a book this week! wink.gif

...and we are back!

This is awesome! I checked the weather, read my emails, watched the news on TV and even answered my first phone call. Pretty cool even if it was a wrong number.

I have to admit the guys at the phone company had to run circles today but they got it done.

I understand not coming up from under a welding hood, but you read a book???

Please tell me it was "The history of battle," or "The book of meat." or " The big dang book of sheer manliness." or a tech manual, or a Chiltons manual.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
