The forecast did change some, Sunday is now 51 ad Monday is 56. I don't have to be to work until Tuesday at 8A so the latest I can leave the lake is Tuesday at 2A.

Some of you may have noticed this thread was locked down for a few days. I PM'd Admin about it (and 2 others) so they should be open soon.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

We rented a cabin on a lake in Minocqua, WI last weekend but the lake was not looking ready for boating yet. Good thing we brought the sleds along. Sledding was great !!!

Picture is of the lake looking out the window of cabin

Trails were in great shape & we had lots of fun.

What you don't see in the picture is the bald eagle that was hanging out.

Cabins were really nice & we enjoyed every minute

It was the 1st time we stay at these cabins but we will definitely be back.

They were really nice & the owners were very friendly & helpful.

Kevin that looks like a beautiful place to run the sleds. Is that one you found on Airbnb or VRBO?

It was recommended by a friend of ours. They rented it the week before & spoke so highly of it we decided to change our plans & book it. Very glad we did worked out perfectly.

Capt Kevin - Looks like fun.

I was able to get some seat time as well. Wanted to get on the frozen lakes, but no joy. Perhaps this weekend.

Dock Holiday the 4 wheeler looks like a great source of fun. If i had some where to ride I'd have a couple.

After yesterday was in the 60°'s I thought about launching the boat if it wasn't for all the logs and debris being washed down from the river into the lake.
Today is a different story with freezing temps and snow.

We have a high in the teens today & in the 50's on Saturday. Crazy this time of year. Every time we get a glimmer of hope they quickly snatch it away.
