This weekend, Mike, Joe and myself went to "Lumberjack Day's" - this is an event highlighting the men who cut down trees for a living and are proud of it - it is like a sport - and they are good at it!
I will let you see some pictures below, but these guys can climb a 60 foot pole in about 13 seconds, and run across logs in the water in about 9 seconds.
Another super fun part of the show was the "Logs and Dogs" portion - they had dogs that could jump about 28 feet across -
And who says MN isn't a great place to live! Who else saw something this cool last weekend?

Lightly running across the poles - he was pretty much flying! - 9 seconds down and back ....Climbing a 60 foot pole in 12 seconds - up and down.Getting ready to run across polesJoe and myself, enjoying the sights - clearly Joe could see more of the action than I could ...
I will let you all know when it happens again next year, so you can come for a visit ;-)
Or you could watch it on TV - I believe it will be on the Outdoor/Wilderness station.
