Getting around in a car

Recommended Posts

I ope to make it up to URL this Saturday to get some slabs.

How easy is it to get around the lake with a car right now? (Assuming that this forecasted snowstorm stays to the south, anyways?)

Thanks for your help!

With current conditions and you pick and choose where you drive you should be ok. Any drifting or snow it could get ugly for cars quick.

I had my car up there last weekend - wasn't bad - for the most part. I did leave on Sunday night - in the dark - and it was blowing pretty good - ended up going across country when I got off the road a ways (not on purpose)made it alright, but it was a little hairy for a while, let's just say I was glad to see shore finally.

Maybe it was just wishful thinking - I'm not ging to chance it with the impending snowstorm. I'm really not in the mood of getting stranded on URL durign a winter storm . . . .

I'll just find a lake around Brainerd to go on, until the forecast looks more promising.

Thanks for the reports! Catch some for me!

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
