Wilderness Walk: Back in Civilization Edition

I've been out blazing some new trails on the North Shore in beautiful Grand Marias for the past week. Completely off the grid, aside from an occasional wifi location with some of the slowest interwebs I've experienced since the days of dial-up.

I wonder if they play hockey on the frozen harbor in winter

Hello Wilderness!  That's right, I'm back in civilization and back on the trail to help guide you through the links you so desperately crave, but just on Fridays and Sundays.  Things got a little rocky on my vacation, which is a joke my daughter probably would not appreciate much seeing as she took a stone to the back of her head courtesy of my son at Split Rock Lighthouse (or Split Head Lighthouse as we call it now).  She's fine, my little trooper took it like a champ and she checked out at the doctors afterwords.

But enough of my vacation stories, if you really want to hear them hit me up on the twitter and I'll tell you all about the Beaver House and one very expensive trip to Sven & Ole's.

Today's breaking story, is there is no breaking story.  The Wild are sitting in limbo with Darcy Kuemper and Nino Niederreiter at the moment, but it shouldn't be anything we need to start worrying about just yet.  Other than that non-story, there really is nothing else to bring you concerning your favorite team.

Sorry, I can't make news happen, I can only write about it.

Would have been much cooler had they actually poured the icy water from the cup instead of on it. - James Tanner - The Worst Moves of the Off-Season
Are these really the 3 worst moves of the hockey season? I think Heater going to Anaheim was snubbed. Sure the deal seems innocent from afar, but they are actually paying him money to play?
