Good /out/ locations in Minnesota? Specifically looking for some 3 day trails, if you guys know of any. Also, Minnesota /out/ general, if there are many of you guys here.
Not a Minnesotafag, but I'm planning on passing through Superior National Forest and Voyageurs National Park this summer. I've heard the mosquitoes are numerous, but it can't be much worse than Alaska.
Do something on the superior hiking trail, a loop that goes through split rock would be my recomendation. We've also got the Kekekabic and the border route trails. Theres also some of the NCT that runs separate from those. There the govenor Knolls trail just on the otherside of the river in WI.
It depends a lot on the weather we get and where you are. If its really wet that year and you are close to water it can get pretty bad, but I have yet to make it up to AK, so no good comparison from me.
Typical evening in Alaska summer. It's pretty bad.
That doesn't look to far off the mark for what you could run into. I feel as though I have been lucky enough with bugs in MN where I don't have a great prespective on what the average should be.
Rode MN a few years back. 2manymosquitos4me.
Must say it was fun dualsporting across the north shore with a Colorado plate on the tail. "You ... colorado ... dirt bike ... shit dude that's hardcore"
I spent a week on the Yukon North Slope for work.
I should have taken more pictures of the bugs up there. It was unbelievable at times.
And apparently we were there in the "low" part of the summer for mosquitoes.
