    We would like to know some of you background before you join in. Caution and safety first. Thanks TZ

    Parking is a few miles East of Finland MN on Heffinger rd, at a snowmobile trail head

    https://maps.google.com/maps?rlz=1C1...8&hl=en&tab=wl search Finland MN

    On GE you can see the parking on Heffinger rd

    From there it is mostly snow mobile trail into the site, except the last few hundred yards

    Lat 47°24'16.82"N
    Lon 91°16'54.03"W

    somewhere close to to those numbers I believe on Google Earth
    I was just curious where it will be held. I've spent a lot of time camping and hiking in Crosby manitou sp and was wondering if it was anywhere close to there. According to Shug's map, looks like camp is actually west of town. Unfortunately, I won't be joining you guys. It does sound like a good time; but I don't have the right gear for midwinter hammock camping. Have fun.

    That would be the most ultimate feat I have ever witnessed!

    Hahaha I can't stop imagining you riding a unicycle with a huge Surly Moonlander tire through the middle of a snowfilled forest while towing your sled!

    So i mapped the route, looks like about a 2.5 mile. Is that about right? Also wondering what the terrain is like? pretty flat or is it a hilly walk in?

    It is fairly flat and follows a snowmobile trail then cuts off into the woods to the right.
    Not sure about the MBT though. We pulled.

    Don't think it was that far. 40 minute walk.

    Holy crud Shug! That is impressive! I was on my ipad and didn't even know you were posting videos since they dont work on the ipad.


    I didnt even know MTB unicycling existed! I will be watching all of the video later.

    Hmmmm... I could spend the doh and get some 3" tires to fit my winter bike. Maybe my winter cruiser tires will cut through it the way it is.

    It certainly could be that when the surface is a bit soft and you break through, at least fun to watch

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    I just need to figure out how to convince the wife that I need a $2000 fat bike.
