Episode 27: Be Like Barb! - Traveling to the North Shore This Summer + Interview with Carl Madsen of Rockwood Lodge
MARTHA IS BACK! And times have certainly changed! The Stay at Home Orders for the State of Minnesota expired on May 18. So we decided to take a look at how things will be on the North Shore for those coming up for a visit in the Summer of 2020. Then, we went to the mid-Gunflint Trail area to interview Carl Madsen, owner of the Rockwood Lodge on Poplar Lake. Carl has adapted some policy changes in the wake of COVID-19 that resemble other changes being made in the area. Listen and learn how you can enjoy the North Shore safely this summer.

Initially we were going to adopt two slogans for the summer of 2020: "Be Smart About Being Safe" and "Plan to Plan Ahead". "Be Smart About Being Safe" is going to stay, but we're replacing "Plan to Plan Ahead" with "Be Like Barb". Listen to the episode to find out who Barb is, and why you should be more like her this summer!*This episode is sponsored by Cascade Vacation Rentals.
