Arriving on Friday at 6:00 pm at Main Street Cafe in downtown Bloomer, WI (dinner on your own) http://www.mainstreetcafe.com/
Hwy 53 exit for Bloomer WI, approximately 2 hours from Bloomington, MN. After dinner, we leave for my cabin near New Auburn WI. For those that arrive later, detailed instructions are available to find the lake house.
Saturday, hike 5 miles on a portion of the Ice Age trail, then canoe/kayak at the glacial lakes near the Chippewa Ice Age Interpretive Center, a little-known Shangri-La about 15 minutes from the cabin.
Saturday night dinner will be a coordinated meal. Jim provides the main course of pasta. Others hopefully bring side dishes/dessert/drinks, etc. Breakfasts consist of oatmeal, milk, brown sugar and coffee as provided by Jim unless others want to contribute more such as juices, fruits. I don’t fix pancakes however to keep the mess to a minimum. Lunches are on your own. We will have a google group page to list our contact information to coordinate rides and food contributions.
There will be a campfire after the dinner.
Sunday morning –kayak/canoe on the Clear Lake chain of lakes. You can also just stay at the cabin to relax or hike in the immediate area.
Lunch on leftovers at the cabin
Leave for the Twin Cities by 3 pm Sunday
Please bring your own bath towels. There are beds, but bring a sleeping bag to lay on the bed.
The $40 deposit covers the food that I provide for breakfasts, the main course for the meal on Saturday plus the septic tank emptying and expenses. I don’t cover costs for on-your-own stuff like Friday dinner, gas, etc.
