Fly Instead?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone ever charter a flight from the cities up to LOW? There's a service out of Crystal Airport that charters flights on small planes.....just wondering if anyone has ever looked into it.

*edit* Just to clarify I'm not saying the the company out of Crystal Airport specifically goes there (haven't heard back from them yet)....just that they do sell charter flights to various places.

Shooter,

I am thinking is going to cost you about $1100.00 for a one way charter out of the Twin Cities. Just to rent an airplane that would take you there and back in about 3 hours is about $200.00 to $250.00 per hour. That's about $600.00 to $750.00 not counting pilot services, and that's just dropping you off, that price could double if you need to get picked up in a few days. If you have a couple friends that would split the cost you could get by cheaper. I still think you are looking at a trip that will cost about $2200.00 total.

Thanks for the reply....obviously not worth it for most people (including me). Oh well, half the fun is the drive up right?

Shooter,

We fly up every year from Alabama. This year we got tickets into Grand Forks for less than Minneapolis. Much shorter drive from there...but either way you are correct, it is worth the drive either way

From what I remember Mark is very close. We also thought about doing away with the long, endless 5-6 hour road trip. However after just a little checking we were happy to go back to hitting the road.

I know Sportsman's Lodge and a couple other resorts offer air package deals on their websites, but you would probably need to call the lodge to get rates.

Check with Marvin Windows. They sometimes will let you get on their plane at Hubert H Humphrey terminal. Keep in mind it is stand-by only. Its around $150 per person to Warroad one way.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
