Directions from Duluth

Ya Hey Der

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

      It is my understanding that Pepin ice went out with the assist of the Coast Guard ice breaker.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.
