[QUOTE=dannynawgz;7178673]^ this.. I think you nailed my perspective on the head as well.. I drive 3-4 hours to get north and ride. Not to drink. I can drink here with the grass showing. Like to start before the sun comes up/soon as it's legal/or shortly after. Nothing like turning a corner and seeing the early reddish sun rise hit the snow and trees. Not to mention the trails are usually in pristine shape from the groomer the night before. If I drink its maybe one or two after the day is done but after 200 miles my mind is spent. Off to bed then repeat. The smaller the group the less BS you have to deal with..

X2!
EXACTLY.

I think people need to know their limits. Its not a sin to hit up a bar and have a couple beers with your meal. Im not one for bar hopping thats for sure. If we stop and eat at a resort that sells liquor so be it. Know your limits and stay away from the hard booze.

Here's how I see it: I love to ride sled and I love to drink, but I can't do either of them to the best of my ability if done together!

You took the words outta my mouth. I get up before 5am all week to go to work so if I can sleep in a little and be on the trails by 10am I'm OK with that. 2 or 3 hours in the saddle, stop for a meal and a beer or two, keep it moving for a few more hours until early dinner, head back to where we left from and maybe stop for a beer or two on the way home if its not too late and we're not too tired. Too dangerous to yourself and others others if you drink too much.

I also think the bars need to set some limits... When riders come in, it is pretty obvious, so they can't hide behind the 'I didn't know he/she was driving' like they can when they send other drunks out the door.
