Rainy Lake Ice Travel

I was born in International Falls, MN and lived on an island on Rainy Lake for the first fifteen years of my life. People always find this extremely interesting, so here is a page on it, separate from my About Me page.

We lived a mile across water from the mainland, so the boat ride (open bow, 15 ft with 15 horse outboard motor) took about five minutes. Then it was a twenty minute drive to school/work. In the winter, the lake would eventually freeze over completely. At different stages of thickness, we would use different modes of transportation.

When we finally moved to town when I was 15, being able to simply drive to a friend's house (or even home from school to get lunch or grab something I forgot), was a true luxury.
