Directions from Duluth

7 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone has any advice on the best way to get to Baudette from Duluth. Mapquest shows that we should go through International Falls and cross over into Canada and then back over. How long should we expect to be on the road?

Thanks!

Should be about 210 miles right to Baudette plus the 10 miles to the lake from here. Drive it all the time and we always go thru Grand Rapids. Hwy 2 out of Duluth to Grand Rapids to Deer River then 46 to Northome. Make your way to 72 north to Baudette. Should be about 3.5-4 hrs depending on how the roads are. It might be shorter going the way mapquest says but then you would have to go thru Customs twice. Even going to I-falls then going west on hwy 11 to Baudette adds a few more miles. Hope this helps. Maybe there are some others that go a different way. Good luck! B-dude

Benelli_dude has it right...I think it is way longer to go up to the Falls and then across.

Ya Hey Der, I would take No. 2 for sure. That way, if you have a propane tank you need refilled, you could stop in Floodwood at Jerry's. They refill your tank and charge you only for the amount your tank actually takes. Unlike here where I live. I get nailed for $19.00, no matter what amount they put in. In Floodwood, if you have a completely empty 20 lber, I think they only charge $10. and change. Nice, friendly folks too. Can't remember for sure but I think it's a Phillips 66 station. Good luck! grin.gif 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Last time I went up there Hwy 53 to south of I Falls then across on the states side was about 10 min faster. You can go 70 mph up to virgina if the roads are clear.... 6 in one hand 1/2 dozen the other

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
