6/21/12 - After a wild drive our northern border with roads under water near Duluth, rains so hard that the semi 2 car lengths ahead disappeared in the dense white and hail stones crashing into the windshield sounding like glasses being thrown on floors all around we made it to I-Falls in mid-afternoon. Groceries were shopped and final stop, Rainy Lake Houseboats www.rainylakehouseboats.com , our ultimate destination achieved. While we were all both anxious and relieved everyone greeted us with smiles ‘n handshakes. Boats, really BIG boats were neatly tied like ducks in a row. Alex, Cory and the other guys helped load all our “stuff” on carts moving into boat #38, the Gold Rush. A short while later Cory inserviced us on the workings of this 50’ craft. Soon after he also backed us from the dock, tied my Ranger to the back and piloted us into
A while later we fired up the hot tub, yup that’s right a hot tub on the roof of the boat, crawled in and pointed out constellations while enjoying some beverages. Relaxed and not believing such an experience could be had the night came to an end around midnight. It was a long day yet really a very unique awesome experience already making the trip special. Today was a fishing day but a tough bite ‘n a windy day. Gotta close now because Thursday Fan Outdoors is getting’ closer and we’re broadcasting from the houseboat tonight.

After only one day I can honestly say everyone should try this if you haven’t already done so. Not only is it extremely relaxing along with unmatched beauty in Voyager’s National Park and world class Rainy Lake fishing you’ll make a memory never to be forgotten. Our trip has really just begun so check the photos often because we’ll be keeping you up to date too! Remember there’s “No Experience Necessary” to begin!
