Hillman's road, It ain't pretty

12 posts in this topic

It is nothing to brag about, it's nothing we're proud off, in fact it is an embarrasment but Hillman's road is plowed out to Rocky Point. 7 1/2 miles. Buddy and I believe in straight roads but this one has more curves then a snake and a cul-de-sac. The first time in 30 years we have plowed a cul-de-sac into a road but we had no other options and with the warmer weather forecasted for next week it will work.

I am coming up on sunday with a wheel house pulled by a 4 wheel drive pickup. Will we be able to find a spot to set up out there?

It looks like the wind has deposited the snow in 3 major areas. The road banks, around houses and in the back of Foster's plow truck through his new broken window. grin.gif

Get around the road banks and it looks like fairly easy going.

Who the hell is complaining?? Lots of people are complaining. Like 'smartguy' mentioned, look back a few pages and you'll find the topics.

I've been saying all winter to let it snow and we'll see how quickly opinions change. Well... its here! Anyone thankful for a plowed road now? blush.gif

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
