My boys love Larry...and if you asked Larry he would have the same feeling towards my boys.

I want to do all I can to keep him in business. We have parked and launched at his place since the early 90ís.

I will be hitting the Black Mountain, riding right from the house, maybe grab some lunch at the Bluffs swing over to Millersburg, i think the Presque Isle groomers are doing a meet and greet at the barn there. This is my favorite trail in my area and finally have enough snow to ride it.

What more needs to be said....It's Larrys...everybody that snowmobiles in that area should always make it a point to stop in even if it's just for a soda and some popcorn...top off your sled as well.

Great man rastiss thanks for your efforts we need to meet up soon. we got to the cabin about 8:30. Everything is fine here but my water is froze! It's been an ongoing battle since we bought the place. Thought I had it beat. Apparently not lol. I think i
I didn't drain it all out last time we were here. Hell it hasn't been that cold it's been a lot colder last year and it never froze.

OH well

Had our furnace quit a couple of years ago. 37 splits in copper from freezing. Damn sewer under footing even froze as it went to septic. Had to have a guy use a steamer to open the sewer up.

I started using an air compressor and blowing lines out. Also add antifreeze to all toilets and drain P traps. Costs me $5 in antifreeze and 15 minutes before I leave. If something freezes it will be minimal.

I do all of that. The problem is between the house and the well pit. I even have a drain in the well pit and that gets blown out by air also. I also have heat tape on the exposed line in the pit. I just think there is a low spot somewhere and I did not get all the water out last time we were here. I have been chasing this problem for 8 years

It's a manufactured home I think the problem is where the line goes from the house into the ground I am going to heat tape that too in the spring.
But I really think I didn't do a good job blowing it out last time we were here.
