Paul Gilk at Drury Lane Books

Saturday, Oct 1st, 5 PM

Drury Lane Books, on the East Bay of Grand Marais

Author Paul Gilk will share stories of his father, Henry Buckberry Gilk, from his book GET POOR NOW, AVOID THE RUSH. Born before the First World War and the oldest boy in a family of thirteen kids, Henry left North Dakota in 1921 for the woods of Wisconsin, where he learned to fish, trap, hunt, lumberjack, and farm.

Gilk's entertaining, vivid stories tell of a rural lifestyle lost to many of us now in the "modern world". Readers are advised to suspend their civilized disbelief. 

Paul Gilk is an intellectual recluse from northern Wisconsin, living in a wooded portion of the homestead farm he grew up on. Also writing as C. D. (Seedy) Buckberry, the author lives without electricity or running water in a log cabin he built by hand where, on occasion, he sees bobcats and bears.

Used Kevlar Canoes and so much more . . . up the Gunflint Trail

This weekend's weather forecast is gorgeous, so why not head up the Gunflint Trail to check out the fall colors AND those used ultralight Kevlar canoes they're selling at Tuscarora Lodge and Canoe Outfitters?!

We've just added two We-No-Nah Champlain canoes to our sale rack. The canoes are both 4 years old and in good used condition. A large kevlar canoe - 46 lbs and 18' long - the Champlain is wide and stable, making it good for lots of gear, young families, fishing trips, and/or large dogs. $1250.00 each. 

We also have 3 We-No-Nah Escape canoes (17' long, 41 lbs) and 1 MN II (18.5' long, 42 lbs) for sale. Average price for these four canoes is $1100, but prices varies depending on the canoe's condition.

We're still selling used metal food packs. $25 each. Great for those portage-free canoe trips (Seagull, Sag, Brule, Clearwater, et. al.) and the pack functions nicely as a piece of camp furniture/dining ware. Also handy around the house to hold bird seed/chicken feed, to use as a really heavy duty clothes hamper, or . . . .? Come get 'em while the gettin's good! 

We have #3 and #4 Duluth style packs from Quetico Superior Canoe Country Packs for sale. Older, but in very good condition, the packs go for $25 a piece. 

We are open every day from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Give us a call at 218-388-2221 if you have any questions, or just swing by during business hours. We're located at 193 Round Lake Rd, 47 miles up the Gunflint Trail, about a 5 minute drive past the turnoff to Gunflint Lodge.

Photography for Beginners

Photography for Beginners | Curtis Juliber

October 8 - 9 | Saturday: 9 - 4; Sunday: 9 - 12

Tuition: $130

Are you interested in exploring your camera and all of its possibilities but don't know where to begin? Students will learn the basics of DSLR photography and gain an understanding of the role of aperture, shutter priority, and the impact of a correct white balance. Curtis will discuss what to do when the photographer (or the camera) doesn’t quite get things right. Students will learn how their individual cameras work and Curtis will discuss what makes a good photograph. From this foundation, students will move out of the classroom to practice taking photos of both the small and wider world.
