Default michigan U.P ditchpickle alert !

*******thats right folks. In the U.P of michigan there is a ditchpickle alert. These green looking machines may be anywhere along the trail, burning, breaking, broken, or just left for dead. Please be carefull when approching these riders on the side of the trail, cause the riders are in a very angry and usually beating their sleds with logs or setting them a blaze.******

ahh just a little brand bashin


My dads freind ask me to go with them up to paradise for the weekend. they left thursday, I left friday.. had to work dammit. I was pumped. My first time riding in the u.p. I rode friday night and saturday with them. it was a blast. The trails were great and the traffic was not to bad. Last night they got about 8" of new snow. it was nice this morning, but we have to leave. All in all, we didn't break anything and didn't kill ourselves

on the way home this morning outside of paradise, 2 guys were riding down the side of the road area. like 30ft of the side, in the nice snow. I was toolin along in my truck and they tried to keep up, the second guy got so distracted he slid down the hill a little and smacked right into a few trees Not to fast. he was ok it looked like . just his pride was hurt


Mitch.... thats where I was.. in paradise

It was a little snowy.. What can be worse then 80-90 mph speeds in the dark , during a snow storm, with sno dust flying in your face 10 ft off the bumper of your buddie. and you are both 3 sheets to the wind I know I shouldn't have even been out there.. But it was great.. Unbelivable

Green , I always wondered why people rip them . Because they wish they had one.. I don't bash just watch the others crash when I pass them .
