It's not just couch potatoes that the Great Lakes Gear Exchange wants to get outside.

Maybe you feel like the only person in the Northland who doesn't know how to cross-country ski and you're a little shy about admitting that.

Maybe your budget can't stretch to equip yourself with brand-new gear for a brand-new hobby.

Luckily for sofa spuds, the frugal and those hungry to learn new skills, the Great Lakes Gear Exchange wants to be a place not only of re-purposing good gear, but of learning and education.

If you have gear-repair skills (or any other skills or questions), you can contact them through their website or drop them a line via Facebook.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
