I'm afraid that this is the best picture that I have of the hitch on one ice fishing house trailers. I would appear that you hook up to the tow vehicle and then raise the trailer.

We will not be going back through Park Rapids when we leave here tomorrow, so we will not be passing that dealer again. If we see another one of these trailers, I will get better pictures.

We had a nice quiet day at Lake George. This morning we went into town and got some Moose Tags Shipped at the Lake George Post Office. We came back to Lucy and started some housekeeping chores in preparation to head out tomorrow.

This afternoon we went out and toured around the area with our friends, Jeff and Linda. We headed over to Dorset, Minnesota, and had supper there at the Dorset House Restaurant. We had some great food and a really nice time.

We came back to Lake George in time to catch sunset on the Lake, and spend some more time visiting with good friends.

Tomorrow we plan to hook-up Lucy and head to the Boundary Waters area of Northern Minnesota.

We broke camp in Lake George this morning, and headed north and east into the Minnesota Boundary Waters Area. It was about a 200 trip mostly on back roads. We went through a few small towns, but it was mostly open country. We stopped to look at a US Army Corps of Engineers Dam near Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The mighty Mississippi River is not much more than a stream at this point near its headwaters.


We were headed to Ely, Minnesota. Ely (pronounced Eelee) is the epicenter of the Boundary Waters Area. We looked around town for a bit before heading out into the Superior National Forest. We found a nice US Forest Service campsite near Fall River about 10 miles outside of Ely. We got Lucy set up on her campsite right before a rain storm passed through. We are in for the night.

We spent the day in and around Ely, Minnesota. We ventured out and took a look at a number of the lakes in the area. The opposite bank of many of these lakes is in Canada.

We also visited several of the resorts and outfitters in the area. They arrange fishing and canoeing trip on these lakes. We spoke with one group of young men who were embarking on an eight day canoe adventure where they will camp-out in the wild during their journey.

We returned to Lucy at her campsite late this afternoon. We had supper and started preparing to head out again tomorrow. We are heading to Grand Portage, Minnesota.

Thanks for sharing. Are you going to be going to the Canopener in Santa Rosa in Jan?

The weather has been really nice. There has been some rain, but the temperatures have ranged from a high of 70 to 75, and a low of 55 to 60. This is much more pleasant than the 95ish at home in the Florida Panhandle.

We went to the first two Canopeners. We have not been able to make it since because we have had a conflict with a business convention that we have been attending in Orlando around the same time. Hopefully, we will will be able to make it by there next year even if we can't attend. We live in Santa Rosa Beach along 30A about 3 miles east of the Topsail Campground.

Hey, you two! This is a wonderful thread. Lin and I enjoy following your adventures to many places we've also toured in years past (not with the Silver Otter, for the most part). We have enjoyed Topsail and your home area for a number of Canopeners in the past. This will probably be our last year there, but we love the area.

Thank you for your kind words. We also love Santa Rosa Beach and the Emerald Coast. We have been there almost twenty years, having come there from Jacksonville in 1995. It is a really neat place to return to after an extensive Airstream Adventure.

We really enjoy doing our trip logs and posting our pictures. I addition to the posts we do here on Airforums, we also do an email to all our friends and family. We do cheat a little bit in that the text in our trip emails is pretty much copied to the Forums post. Likewise, with the daily pictures.

Our email goes out to about 200 addresses, and we try to get one out every day when we are out on one of our Airstream adventures. We like doing this because it chronicles our Airstream trips for us to look back on, and we get to share it with our friends and family.

We take a lot of pictures on our trips. Last year on our western swing we took about 5,000 pictures. I know that seems excessive, but we can't help ourselves. I keep almost 3,000 pictures of that trip on my phone.

I had discontinued the Airforums trip threads a couple of years ago. There were several people on the Forums at that time who objected to my trip threads, and posted snide remarks. I guess they felt that I was using too much band width.

More recently, several folks here have encouraged me to start doing our trip threads again. So here we are, back to exploiting the band width. If there are those here who don't like it, they are free NOT to read it.

Thumbs up Great trip thread...

Thanks for sharing your trip details, photos and experiences on the road - I really enjoy taking a little 'armchair' trip with you all after long days at work. I don't have an Airstream yet and am curious to hear what you and your wife think about your 23 FB on a long trip like this one. Safe travels to you.

Thanks for continuing your AirForums' trip threads. They enable those of us who do not go on cross country trips to live vicariously through your descriptions and photos. Your trip notes are especially interesting to us captains of similar size Airstream trailers to see how they perform along the way, and give us incentive to help you troubleshoot if any problems arise. Please continue to document how your new-to-you 23' Flying Cloud is performing and how you and SuEllyn are adjusting to it.

May you have smooth sailing ahead!

Bill
