Heading up friday what vehicle should we take???

5 posts in this topic

hi guys well me and 3 of my buddys are going up to LOW and we are planning on taking portables out, and my question is what do you guys think would be a better vehicle to take up? a huge 2 wheel drive van or a extended cab 4 wheel drive pickup? we want to take the van cause it has more room but will it get around on the lake alright? I dont want to get stuck, are the roads alright up there? thanks SRK

The roads will be fine. Off road would be tough even with

the 4 wheel drive.

If the wind dosent blow \:D the van will be fine, but if the wind blows and you don't keep your eye on the roads you could end up needing a bomber to get back.

Two days ago the only thing moving off the roads were the bombers and snow mobiles.

      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.
