Minnesota Public Radio''s Bob Kelleher takes us to Madeline Island off the shore of Lake Superior to visit an old fashioned, home-made windsled. It is the crucial link to the mainland during the icy winter when ferries cease to operate, but it may be in its last days. Residents want a more reliable form of transportation and the old-fashioned windsled may soon be replaced with a hovercraft.
