    The Duluth Haunted Ship

    The Duluth Haunted Ship

    Happy Spooky Month! It's our favorite time of the year and it was made even better this year with the return of the Duluth Haunted Ship! For three long years, we have been awaiting the return of the ghosts and ghouls that appear on the William A Irvin every October. The haunting was canceled in 2018 when the ship was moved to dry dock for repairs. She didn't return until mid-October 2019 which was not enough time to hold the haunting. Then, 2020... well, you know. But here, in October of 2021, the Haunted Ship is back!


    *


    In this episode, Jaye and Martha interview Dave, the man in charge of the Duluth Haunted Ship actors. Then, they interview Joe, one of the Haunted Ship's lead actors. They learn about the inner workings of the Duluth Haunted Ship before coming aboard ourselves. While in line, Jaye and Martha befriend a group of pre-teen and teenage girls who you will get to hear a lot of during the tour of the ship. So. Many. Screams. Clips of Jaye and Martha's individual recordings of themselves going through the ship reveal the highlights and terrors found within.

    The Duluth Haunted ship will terrify visitors through Halloween night. You can buy tickets online or at the ship itself.

    Gem House + Molly and Andy Guest Feature

    Gem House + Molly and Andy Guest Feature

    Gem House is one of the newest vacation rentals offered by Cascade Vacation Rentals. This beautiful home boasts a gorgeous amethyst fireplace that enthralled our TikTok followers (39K views and counting). So, we decided to spend the night at Gem House and feature all of the amazing things you can do right within walking distance (or a short drive) of the home. Plus, we sat in front of the amethyst fireplace. A lot.

    In this episode, we visited Naniboujou Lodge for breakfast, hiked to the Devil's Kettle to see the waterfall during the low-water period caused by the recent drought, and then went geocaching out to a Lake Superior island. Plus, we enjoyed a few hours in the ENO Triple Hammock stand enjoying a beautiful summer afternoon on Lake Superior's North Shore.

    This episode also includes our first Guest Feature! We met with and interviewed Molly and Andy on their 10th Anniversary. Married ten years ago at Lutsen Resort, the couple now has three children and makes frequent day trips to the North Shore. However, this is the first time they've stayed at the Aspenwood Townhomes since their wedding ten years ago. Listen to what brings them to the North Shore and the special meaning the area holds for them in this Guest Feature Interview.

    Geocaching on the North Shore

    Geocaching on the North Shore

    Geocaching is like going on a giant worldwide scavenger hunt. With the help of the official Geocaching app, you can explore the world around you, and find some treasures along the way. In this episode, we explore 8 Geocaching sites along Lake Superior's North Shore- including exploring some areas even we have never been to before! Geocaching is a great way to get a bit off the beaten path and see an area you may otherwise not have visited. Or, make the places you are planning to visit just a little more interesting.
