This weekend Anni and I headed up to the Northwoods with a fantastic group of friends. Thursday AM I was picked up by Ryan. After loading our gear we headed North on 35W towards Duluth. Funny thing is we were detoured off route in Hinckley for the legendary Thickburger.

After hitting the liquor store in Duluth, the grocery store in Two Harbors, and Lou's Fish House for some Beef jerky and smoked Salmon we b-lined for Lutsen Resorts.

If you have never done this drive, it is incredibly scenic. The day was beautiful, and the sites incredible.
Friday was spent hitting the slopes. I hadn't touched my board in 4 years. It was good to get out and get some form back. Not good form, but some form.
Saturday was spent on the skinny ski's . Anni , Sean, and I did about 10K, somewhat inadvertently. The weather was fantastic, in the 20's and the snow was good. Thinking we were doing a loop I lead the group. After some questioning of my lead and a map that said otherwise we stopped for a rest and to enjoy the trail beer that Sean had packed.
Evenings were spent making good food, drinking good beer, hot tubs, and general shenanigans. There was also a viewing of this. It comes highly recommended.
This may become an annual. It may not. This is the kind of trip that makes great memories.
