Can’t decide if I’m here to get away from things or think about them more clearly.
I think I'd head to Montana. But I'm dying to get back out west.

was supposed to be on a canoe trip out of Ely this weekend, but called it off for the forecast pissing rain and snow - as well as teen kid commotion to keep up with
I’m looking for snow. Where’s Ely?


Found it. Maybe. Pretty sure I’m gonna head to Hibbing in the next day or two.

Well, Hibbing is a place I would not ever bother going to if I were you.

I would actually love to see a pit mine as well, especially if it is active. Of course I would really want to be able to explore it and check out the machinery, not just watch from a viewing point. I'd still check out the view from wherever they allowed though.

Correct.

Sad maybe, but I miss these threads.
