    It sounds like for april 24th(this Sunday) that MikeS,C-Zulu, and myself are in for Betty's Pies approx 10am? Was anyone else going to show up? Easter Sunday is a tough day for most. Also MikeS have you decided if you were going to hit the snake trail before or after Betty's? Before hand and I might just meet you on hwy 1. Not far for you either C-Zulu.

    Went to Betty's today, I told them we would be there around 10 am. The snake trail does that hit Hwy-1 in IIsabella?

    Yes, just a little south. It is a fun road if ice free! I did hit some snow/ice on the drummond line north of Two Harbors last weekend but it was a narrow/shaded part of the road and I would think by this weekend all the roads should be fine but if not, what the heck! Life is an adventure! One can always turn around. I would estimate we should be there by 8:30 to make it by 10 at Betty's.

    I'm totally up for this, but don't add me to any lists. With my job, I can't plan my life more than an hour or two in advance. However, I am planning on moving to the Duluth area soon, and I will definitely be riding around up there sometime around fishing opener, looking for places to live. Will trade beers for leads on nice apartments or cheap real estate.

    Then all I have to do is figure out how to carry growlers on my WR :1drink. I always stop at Fitger's when I pass through Duluth, maybe you know a better spot? I suppose I could find a place to live within their delivery range, if they still do that.

    ArrowHead and MikeS. I just rode up the Snake trail and there is still a good amount of snow on the trail. I'm not saying it isn't passable but you better have good nobbies and you better be willing to work. :eek1


    Just an fyi, I'll see you guys at Bety's at 10 a.m.

    Got in last night, working out of town with no internet. With the snow north of GM, wondered about Snake Trail condition. Looks bad for me, as I have "nubbies". See you at Bettys at 10 to plan where to go. As I head down, I'll pull in to the wayside at Tetigouche/Shovel Point to see if anyone like Arrowhead is there.

    You could mount coffee cans on your handle bars. That might hold the Fitgers growler! They do still deliver within a certain radius in Duluth. What is bringing you to the Duluth area? Certainly not just the beer.
