So far, I've struck out. Anyone coming this way that can give my Bell Rock Star a ride for $$$ please contact me. Thanks!

Thanks, Mirth, I may take you up on that?

I have a canoe getting some TLC at Northwest canoe. When complete, like Mirth, I could get it to Chicago.

Thanks, I'm headed to our Ozark Rendezvous tomorrow, then our family Hay Ride, so will be out of touch for a week. Next Monday I will see if I can figure out the best pick up option. THANKS!

Sure thing. I'm looking at being up overnight 10/23-24 before heading home. I just need to know far enough in advance to toss the blocks and straps into the rental car.

I'll be going from the Chicago area to southern Illinois the second week of November. Could bring your canoe and meet you somewhere down there.

I am the current holder of said Bell Rock Star, I'm in NE Minneapolis. I could get it over to Northwest canoe if that would be helpful.

I have business at NW Canoe while I'm in town, so as long as Dennis is going to be open on the 24th I plan on stopping in.

Last I emailed with him he indicated he'd be in & out for the next couple weeks and back for a longer stretch starting the 24th. When he's not there are they closed? Never been to NW Canoe, only bought online from them.

Ozark have you thought about me getting your canoe from mirth and bringing it down to you?

So, if Mirth picks it up, where would YOU pick it up and take it? If I could get it closer than Chicago, that would be great! I tried your e-mail, but not working?

I kept the '71 for my sister but plexmidwest will soon have the '70 for his collection!

Sorry I got down for the count... My goal is to get myself and rig up and running by March. Then anyone needing canoes moved will be in luck.

Thought I would check in and see if any piggy back plans have been firmed up. I received an email from Dennis today that my canoe is ready to be picked up. So at some point in near future I will be planning a college visit for my son and a canoe pick up. If there's still a need to get a canoe from MSP to Chicago, let me know.

I currently have the boat in the northern suburbs of Chicago, need to set plans to get her to Tom next week and then he's going to bring it to Terry in November.

I had a nice chat with Dennis yesterday, probably saw your boat yesterday and had no idea. The north canoe he's been working on this year is looking nice!

She's on my truck until Friday, when I'll hopefully test her out? Thanks SO MUCH for the help Allan and Tom! And Daniel, thanks for working with me and including that nice, home made solo yoke. This community is something special!
