Heres a story for Butch, I spent a few hours Fri siting down at the Pier Plaza with Johnny J. back in the mid-late 60's his dad had one of those early Ski Doos, I think 8 hp, No trails or rules back then, belt life was about a day. We made it threw the woods, running power lines and some roads, out to Mt Ashwabay. Thats probably only 10 miles but took us most of the day, you never heard of trails, you made your own.
I hear their working hard to get the ravine trail back into town and again eliminate the run down Meyers/Olson Rd from the Berrie farms. IDK how things are organized club wise up there, but they could probably use some help convincing the City board
You must have been the one's loading when we past you then a little farther down we where on the side of the road/trail and you drove by us with them on the trailer.

Maybe down south! still good up here waaaaay less traffic on our trails so they hold better. not to mention colder nights yet. suppose to be down in the high teens tonight and 15 tomorrow night. Highs are in the 40's for the weekend. I'm thinking a lot of people want it over???
I've been thinking maybe IT'S TIME TO GET MY RZR OUT! or MY FAVORITE RIDE, MY MULE!

Many of our trails are multiuse trails, meaning you can snowmobile or ATV on the same trail. We saw this quite often this year, not that I personally condone this on some trails in soft conditions but when the trails start to go bad during the end of the year it makes no diff to me! What I don't care for is when the atv fishtails all over the trail resulting in ruts from side to side. These people typically get the big middle finger wave from everyone. No need for that.
We ran our RZR's about 3 weeks ago as the trails were so hard they never left much of a mark. Keep in mind "ALL" trails close as of April 1st until I think May 15th. This is a dry up time that the forest service came up with. I do think your good to run a lot of the roads if they are gas taxed as they can't stop you!

I want to ad that if you have never been here snowmobiling or on an ATV you need to check it out. This place rocks for ATV use due to the amount of miles of forest roads and trails, not to mention the Tri County Corridor. I also think the Tri County Corridor is not closed for that dry up time, but don't quote me????
As far as ATV travel now, WAY TO MUCH DEEP SNOW YET on the trails and the fire roads! Unless you like getting stuck a lot?
