Time for a Winter Break…

Time for a Winter Break…

As people talk about spring approaching in other parts of the country we are still enjoying temperatures resting on both sides of that zero on the thermometer.

This is a good thing since this is the time when hardy Foresters are at their most productive, driving on frozen ground, lakes and rivers and of course taking advantage of our seasonal ability to walk on water.

All of this adds up to use being able to go places that we would not normally go without getting very wet.

I think that this week may be a good time for me to take a break and join the Foresters out in the woods; head up to the coldest place in the lower 48, International Falls Minnesota, to do a bit of timber cruising and backcountry winter camping.

They are working on a 70 thousand acre Forest Inventory that should take them about 5 weeks to complete.

The frozen ground has been very nice for them as they work in this extremely swampy part of the world; let’s hope that winter sticks around until the end to help them out.

Bob - I had never thought of that before, but can now see how the winter coldness could allow Foresters access to places they could not reach during warmer times.

Bob, I guess every cloud has a silver lining. But I still hate the cold. I don't think you can have enough layers to keep me warm. I really like our 85 degrees this week.

Chief Cook's broker has family in IF.  And, it is his destination spot for a good part of the winter for snowmobiling.  It stays cold, and it is usually a pretty safe bet that there is a good deal of snow there for a longer period of time, too.  Enjoy your trip!

It has been in the low 70's here and some days I can't take that much cold weather. I know.... I am a wimp... but as the temps drop I acclimatize and am able to handle it.... I love it because I get to shop for REAL WINTER SWEATERS!
