OK - We've just got blasted with a bunch of snow and it looks as though we may finally have a good old fashioned MN winter.

Maybe you are looking for a brief escape? My wife and I went to Maui this past October. I put together a website of our trip. You'll see a number of references to Northern MN and the BWCAW.

Now I'm not a writer or a photographer and have never done a web site before. So....grab your favorite Don Ho CD, mix up a Mai Tai and come along for the ride. Please take a minute and sign the guest book and include where you are from.

PS: I'm not making any money off this site - I hope it doesnt break any rules to post it here. If anyone here is ever planning a trip to Maui, I'll be happy to help you out with any questions you might have.

Aloha!

Leaky, Holly Hana you did a super job documenting your vacation. I started to read and knew I didn't have enough time to finish so I want to get back to it later.

It sure would help anyone planning a trip to Hawaii to take a look. Take Care.

Went there before too, recognized a few of the same places. I could go to Hawaii every year I love it there so much. We went on a submarine and I went charter fishing too. Had a blast.

Hey Leaky,

Nice website! I like the video of you running into Steven Tyler! HaHaHa! Anyways, never been to Maui, but I have been to Kauai and the Big Island twice. Lots to see and do over there. I wish I was there right now...I love going over there! I am kinda hoping to go back next winter...we will see. My wife and I really liked Kauai alot- you should go there sometime.

Later,

Justin

Really cool Leaky!

I was there for my first time in July for someones wedding. We didn't get the time to explore the place like you did so I appreciate seeing some of the other places we though about going to. We were based out of Kaanapali Shores. Nice hotel but not like where you stayed.

We just seemed to be there at the wrong time. Bad surf, drought and a couple wildfires on the hills. Sure looks better in your production! Nice work!

Oh, and yeah, your last piece of advice: Upgrade to 1st class if you can for that flight! crazy.gif We didn't and halfway across the Pacific, I would have paid the pilot directly to get a couple seats but they were all full.

Justin--sounds like you're gettin that Jelly of the Month Club membership for your Christmas bonus, huh? grin.gif

Thanks guys. It was quite the adventure. I really liked the Hana side of the Island, which would lead me to believe Kauai would be awesome.

Casey - that Big Beach Vid is my favorite. I must have watched that thing 20 times now. That little girl running to the water and back just kills me. The Steven Tyler thing was pretty cool as well.

If you haven't watched the Paia vid, the chick that talks about pizza sauce being made with "red dirt from the earth" was also classic Paia.

Hi Picks

Comcast went and changed up the format on the website and I can't figure out how to get the links to work again. If you want to do some research prior to going, check out Trip Advisor dot com. They have Hawaii (Maui) forums that were a great help prior to us going.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
