Yes, it would be 2 hours. Once in Houghton, you'd take Canal Road...it's not too hard to find. :-) I want to go...my hubby said "knowing our luck, we'd both break through the ice!" Positive outlook on that man, huh? ;-)

It looks like Freda is about a 2 hour drive for me. I'd be curious to check it out on some nice winter day, though!

HAHA! Some day I will host an SP event here in the Keweenaw, and we can go on little sightseeing tours for all the hiking hotspots! LOL

It's SW of Houghton. There's a dam there and it is so AWESOME! Close to Freda, if you've heard of that?

I agree. Brown, dead everything = YUCK!

Yay for Spark Messages!

Just talked to a guy at the hospital who said that there's an AWESOME place to go snowshoeing - Redridge - and there are ice caves you can climb behind. I sooo want to go there!

COME ON SNOW!!!emoticon

I haven't been ice fishing since I was a kid. We lived on Lake Huron in one of the channels in the Les Cheneaux islands in Cedarville. If it's going to be cold, I'd rather have LOTS of snow than brown dead looking everything! emoticon

I am! We're still looking for the info on it, but we're going to give it a try! You can't beat that!

We are under a snow advisory tonight, so we should wake up to a few inches tomorrow anyway!

We have never ice fished, but want to this year. Just in shorter batches...we don't have a shack, but we were going to just sit in the bay (I live in Dollar Bay) with chairs and cut a hole. We'll see. We fished about a dozen times this past summer and didn't catch a SINGLE fish! We felt so defeated! LOL

I'm starting to worry that we might not have snow for Thanksgiving! That would be very disappointing. It's weird seeing green grass!

I would definitely take MTU up on their offer. I'd like to trying skiing again, but it's such an expensive sport! I'm going to stick with snowshoeing for now.

Does anyone do any other winter activities? I like to ice fish, and I'll tell ya, it's hard work pulling an ice shack out to the middle of a lake!

You know...in regards to falling...

it happens. But it's fun. Seriously, what could be more fun than falling into a fluffy pile of snow face-first? And how long as it been since you've done that?

If you're worried about keeping your balance, though, use some ski poles. My mom does--she has osteopenia (is that what it's called? The pre-cursor to osteoperosis?), so she's worried she'll fall and break a bone.

And Danielle...I may very well take you up on that. I'd love some snowshoeing company.

I looked on there briefly. I am still in the research stages. LOL

Just found out yesterday that there's a group at MTU that if you pay the trail fees around here ($60 I think) they will give you the equipment to use (CC skis or snowshoes) for the entire winter!! I'm still looking into that too...it would be good to get to try both sports, and still decide if we like it and want to invest in the equipment!

Decisions, decisions!

THAT is a great idea!! I never knew that - I will check around for sure in the spring...if we do like it! :-) The ones we found aren't the most beautiful...they are more like the 'old style' snowshoes, but are aluminum or something. It'll be a good starting place for us. We'll see how it goes?

But, thanks for the tip. I will check around at places that rent them out (didn't even know you could DO that!) and see if they sell them or not! Awesome!!

You might want to buy more expensive ones after you know that you like it! Sports shops usually sell their rentals in the spring. (I know the one in Ishpeming does), so if you don't mind numbers written on them, you can get used name-brand ones for cheap!

We have found some that are $40, which is a concern for us that we don't spend a TON of money. They aren't exactly what I wanted, but I figure if we can get something to start the winter, I can save up during the winter and get something different. He agrees that we just need to get something so we can start! He's excited too b/c he can use them when he's hunting!

If you can walk, you can snowshoe! :) It's very easy and VERY fun. Plus, you work up a good sweat under all those clothes. It's a huge calorie burner as well. I just love it!

JAELLY,

I live in Negaunee. My fiance and I are going to do the Noque snowshoe race this year, so we'll be snowshoeing most evenings. You are more than welcome to join us.

My son goes to school in Hancock! Small, small world! It sure is beautiful...was outside last night after a meeting with a friend and were amazed at how beautiful it was - huge clear sky filled with stars! Hopefully we get that big snow they are talking about this weekend and it leaves a pretty blanket over everything!

I'm excited to try snowshoeing!!! My hubby has a pair he uses for hunting, so I guess it's my turn to get some...

Hi CM. emoticon

I actually went to high school in Hancock (go Bulldogs!), and my sister & her husband still live in Houghton. Beautiful country!

I never snowshoed until I moved to MQT, but I imagine it's much better farther north with a good snowfall.

Uhm...yes. Treadmill. Maybe some bellydancing (and boy, does my belly dance!). And definitely snowshoeing! I LOVE snowshoeing! If anybody's in/near MQT and wants to go out with me sometime, give a holler-yo!

My mom is very much into CC skiing, and she'd always make us go when we were kids. She'd have me and my sister practicing going down the snowbanks into the street so that we wouldn't freak out on hills. I still did though! I used to just make myself fall so that I was allowed to walk down!

I would kill myself too. I tried CC skiing once when I was like 15, and was terrified to go down a little hill, so I can't imagine how it would be on a giant hill. I'd take the skis off and end up walking down the hill like a dork! emoticon

I'm not much for skiing, either. This year I'm going to attempt snowboarding, but probably just on hills at our camp- I don't want to invest a bunch of money to do it at a ski hill.

Snowshoe! And hopefully hit the gym. I tried to run outside during the winter last year, but found it way too slippery.

I want to snowshoe. I think it would be fun. I have NEVER done it before! I need to get some. Hmmm. Good idea!

I don't ski, and haven't ice skated since I was younger, (don't have skates anymore either!) so I've been trying to come up with good ideas...but snowshoeing sounds like FUN! :-) I even know somewhere that I could get snowshoes to borrow for ALL the kids! LOL

I mostly just do the treadmill in winter. Sometimes I do things like go to Tequomenon Falls and hike around. The upper falls are open year round. I even go up and down the back stairs an trail that are closed in winter. shhhhhh emoticon lol Oh, I have snow shoes but I was too big for the size of them. I think they would be ok to use now. I'll try them out this winter again.

I have been doing Yoga...and Wii Fit. Trying to ease back into it after being completely sedentary for over 8 months! I was surprised at how much fitness I LOST in that amount of time...WOW! So those two things I can do inside no problem.

I will also start walking on the treadmill in a week or so...I just wanted to be able to do it without feeling like I'm going to die!

I have been trying to do activity with my kids...they sure can keep me moving! They make up circuit training stations, and we rotate through them! It's been fun.

I still do have to take the dogs for walks, so I am outside, but it's not always very aerobic...sometimes it's pulling the leash to get them to hurry because it's so cold! LOL

Those are my current things...I'm sure it'll change more as winter goes on!

Wow...I can't believe it...but winter will soon be upon us (it's snowed in some parts of the U.P. already this fall!).

What are you all doing to help keep in shape this winter? Everything changes - walking outside becomes a challenge with icy roads and cold temperatures keeping us inside.

And, what do you all do to help combat the "hibernation weight" that plagues so many people? It is so hard, because all you WANT to do is curl up on the couch, under a blanket, with some hot chocolate, and read or watch TV!

Let's share tips, strategies, and MOTIVATION to stay healthy this winter! This is especially important right now with the holidays fast approaching!!

Let's do it, U.P. style!!
