We will be watching for Texas plates. Hope we have some cool weather for you. This will be a pretty casual event, but if you have a musical instrument be sure to bring it. We do have music and popcorn!

Fire Tower anyone?

I only know of two people who would be interested in climbing up the fire tower near the fairgrounds. If there are any other takers you need to let me know as I would need to arrange to have the fire tower keeper there to allow us access.

Anyone else interested?

Nancy

Tyler,

Would Thursday afternoon work? We could do it after the bog walk. provided we can arrange with the key keeper.

Rick,

The fire tower is adjacent to the fairgrounds. I see you arrive on the 14th, I think Tyler leaves on the 15th. Do you know what time you arrive on the 14th? I would suggest Thursday evening, but last night I found something local (I'll post later) that people might want to do on their own Thursday night.

Nancy

We will be leaving Winnipeg at about 8 or 9am on that Thursday the 14th and depending on the border crossing should be there early afternoon. Never crossed the Border with the trailer before so not sure how bad they get at searching the trailer. Not bringing anything but our camping gear so hope it will go ok.

Unless you look nervous or suspicious, or they happen to randomly choose you, a full search seems unlikely.

How many steps up the fire tower? Sounds like work!

The Pinewood fire tower at the fairgrounds is 80 feet high. It was saved and moved to the fairgrounds.

Aiton Fire Tower is at Itasca State Park. It is 100 feet tall. One starts that climb after walking uphill for 1/2 mile. Not sure what hours it is open.

You guys can do the math on how many steps that is.

I have to do more research Monday during working hours to see if we can indeed schedule a time.

Also on Monday I will look into how likely one could get tickets to the Paul Bunyan Theater without reservations. It is the oldest professional summer stock theater in the state. They perform in the old Chief Theater.

I'll try to post more information Monday and Tuesday.

I'm hoping to leave Perham about noon on Thursday, so I should be there by 2 or so. Will I still be able to climb the tower with you folks? Looking forward to this getaway.
