    Enjoyed myself last year.

    Looks like we will miss the wood boat festival dance by one week this year. :lol3

    The lake trout that we caught were really good.

    The campground would let us do it the 4th weekend. We miss Fathers Day (good) and the Wood Boat Show(sad) but maybe we pickup a few degrees of heat!

    I put it on the calendar. I'll bring a different bike this year. I'm headed up to Grand Marais this weekend with my girlfriend. We got a condo booked for the weekend. It's a whole different place in the winter. I had a real good time last year.

    No decision yet on cancelling. The Viking Antique Motorcycle Show and Back to the 50's have cancelled. No word on when the campground is opening. Their May 1st date is void.

    What say you guys?

    I was just talking about this today with @fuhgawee.

    I'm still in. Going fishing again Saturday.

    I know things will probably be different, or maybe not at all.

    We are in a holding pattern for now. The campground is closed until Juneish. https://www.grandmaraisrecreationarea.com/
    We do have the time slot reserved but they will be the ones to allow it or not. Our Governor has stopped camping for groups over 10 and less then 10 for family members only.... But we all all family so we have that in our favor!

    Dirt Farmer: I waved as I passed Emporia yesterday! Your check and others will remain uncashed until after the rally is held!

    Fingers crossed!
