Gus relaxes in our nice WARM ROOM after a grueling journey northwards.

By almost 7:00, Sev arrived in the hack. ICE frozen to both of his windshields...
October 13, 2006 18:57:51
We headed off to dinner - another bad omen in the parking lot. This layer of snow was still there the next morning...

Gus with his girlie drink. The question wasn't "what's in there?" but "is there any possible ingredient they might have left OUT?!??"

Sev next to the "Tips for Musicians" jar that just got set down at our table. We picked up and left for a part of the bar that DIDN'T have musicians...

Donna and Mike Senty (right?) in the "Pirate's Cove" part of the bar

Hmm... not as warm as we might have hoped for.

Our fancy-pants motel with "the car that never moves"

Snow on the FJ... ice on the roads. Brrrrr

Cool cloud I spotted while down on the beach

The North Shore is just beautiful.

Funky mosaic tile building in Grand Marais

Sev's sidecar rig. It wouldn't start.

October 14, 2006 7:47:58 he threw a hairdryer in there to try to loosen up the 20-weight oil that is in there. We left this running and walked down to the coffee shop. An hour later we came back and it fired right up!

Another view of the waterfront in Grand Marais, MN

A hack's-eye view of Sev piloting his rig up the Gunflint Trail - with Mike Etlicher on the back.

I'm taking pictures of the road when I feel a loud SMACK SMACK SMACK on top of my helmet and Sev points to the scenery to our right. Difficult to shoot from a moving rig but I did my best.

The road conditions were not that great for a two-wheeled vehicle. Ice and snow (and snowplows)!
October 14, 2006 9:51:17
It was beautiful, though.

Iceballs formed on the little nubs on the tire of one of the insane two-wheeled motorcycles that made the trip up to the lodge.
October 14, 2006 10:15:9
Sev's front tire was well coated with ice after the somewhat-treacherous ride up the Gunflint!
