Traviss,
There looks to be ALOT of snow left in the U.P.! AWESOME!

Tantrum,
You're a sissy! Only men ride sleds that have concrete blocks for rear skids.

Troutly,
You're just gay!

I'm the BEST! There, now how is that for being rude? Oh yeah, Allen4 is a PUTZ! I have NO IDEA what that means but I see GLH post it all the time and everyone thinks its funny to bash him, so I thought this would be an ideal opportunity. j/k Allen4

I just sold all my stuff 2mo ago.....I miss it and enjoy the sled talk. Trying to move to LOTO and sleds won't do much there. Can always buy again. Plenty available.

mitch.. In my mind the snow was great. Buddie thought they still had atleast 2-3 foot on the ground. Over the whole weekend, there might have been 6-7 spots were dirt was coming through, but after saturday nights 8" the trails are probably very nice now. I think the UP still has another 3-4 weeks before the snow will be gone. Hopefully it wil be cold for a while still

Nothing RIDES like a Rev , BUT you've got to turn sometime !!

Didn't see any broken Ditch Pickles this weekend just a Yamaha with a broken rear suspension (the owner thought he was a snowcross racer) and a Rev with a hole in the heat exchanger.

Got to Naubinway (35 minutes west of the bridge on highway 2) around 2 pm friday and rode to Taquemenen Falls and then Paradise and back. A real nice 120 miles with Newberry being the only bad spot.
Saturday rode 240 miles. Left Naubinway and rode to Gulliver and then Shinglton. Just as we got to Shingleton it started to snow. We ate dinner and by the time we got out there was around 4-5 inches of snow. It was pretty cool riding 120 miles back with visibility being around 20 feet.
If it stays cold up there I can see riding for another 3-4 weeks.
