Wabasha on the Mississippi River
I'm planning an overnight ski trip (weather pending) to Wabasha Minnesota. It's rite on the river. We will be staying at a place called Eagles On The River 651-565-3509. Many area attractions with in walking distance to the boat ramp, including Slipperys Bar (grunpy old men), A wine bar (wife will love it) Italian place with awesome pizza, and a few other bars too. 2 marinas in the area selling 91+ octaine fuel. Wabasha is only 15 miles away from Lake City which is the widest place on the Mississippi and also has many things to do. The dates we are looking at are June 18,19,20 (Wed, Thurs, Fri) Riding during the week is so much nicer than the weekends. We might ride up from Prairie Du Chien or Trailer a little closer.
Anyone with a ski or boat is welcome to meet up with us.

I could definitely make that, especially wed. or thurs.. When you get your dates confirmed, please post or let me know. I have a friend in Rochester, Mn. who might be able to make it as well. If the water is high enough, there is an off shoot river that one can ride up into Wis. The Lake City part of the river is a very nice area...also not to far away from Red Wing which is a neat little town and has lots of back water areas.

Unbelievable...my wife just told me that my son's speech therapy sessions are changing from Tues. afternoons to Thurs. afternoons starting this week. So unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it on the 19th now. However, if your plans change and you are there on Wed. the 18th, then I could make that for sure...keep me posted.

We are leaving on the ski from Prairie Du Chien tomorrow (Wed) morning around 11:00. We hope to arrive in Wabasha sometime tomorrow afternoon. The only thing that would slow us down us barge traffic.
Our goal is to be drinking beer at Slipperys tomorrow night!
