    That's awesome MNH. My mom's brother had a little cabin on the lake. We went there when I was like 5 or 6 years old. I remember competing in a "turtle race" in a nearby town and took third place. I took the turtle home in my carry on bag and showed him to the stewardesses. Man how things have changed.

    Those would be the Longville, MN Turtle races! I included a link for your stroll down memory lane. It is tough to beat MN lake country traditions!

    That is so cool. Just like I remember, the starting line being inside a smaller circle, racing out to the edge of the bigger circle. That had to be around 1970 I did that. Thanks!

    Ha! I grew up fishing Woman Lake and my parents still live on Leech!
