Who was it?

6 posts in this topic

I was at a cross country meet in Faribault tonight and I saw a green ford truck with Fishing Minnesota and Hotspot outdoors decals on the doors. Who was it?

Was that the Fairbault Invitational held on one of the local golf courses? I ran there in high school a few times. My senior year it was about 95 degrees with high humidity and we had runners dropping like flies. A few were carted off the course and brought to area hospitals. Not alot of fond memories of that course. That last year there almost did me in. I must have drank a gallon of water from bottles that were tossed to me as I ran and it didn't seem to do a bit of good. I was always a track man myself anyways.

That was me. It was run at Alexander Faribault Park. My daughter was in it and I must have run a mile myself trying to encourage and then get ahead, encourage some more etc.

I'm very proud of her and her long distance running. I received a call from John of Fishing the Wildside and had to ask him if he minded talking on Monday as I was on the run myself trying to get in place for her smile.gif

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
