While scouting out fire tower locations across the border in MN, I spotted this near Finland, MN, there's also a fire tower near by.

I use UTM as opposed to decimal degrees but if you copy and paste this into google earth, it should take you there.  If not, look for Finland, MN.  Go just a touch north from that point, to Cramer road, follow Cramer road to airbase road, then follow airbase road to this spot.

I'm wondering if anyone is interested in making a road trip sometime and hitting up this spot and a few of the fire towers I've found in the area as well.  I'll end up doing this on my own if I have to, likely in the spring or summer on a weekend, but, it's always more interesting exploring with others and this place seems to be teeming with people who enjoy interesting abandoned places.  Here's a list of the towers I have spotted.

I don't always use a GPS, but when I do, I prefer UTM.
