Default Will You Ride This Weekend?

Assuming the following 2 things:

1) The EUP gets the predicted storm for 4-8 in on Thursday night (which will bring many trails back into ridable condition)

2) There are no more changes in the virus restrictions

I pose the following question:
Will you travel North to ride the trails this weekend?

Talked about this last night. If weather goes as (hopeful) predicted, I'd highly consider going up Friday through Monday. We'll see what happens in the next 48 hours both weather wise and everything else chaotic wise.

Love riding but with the way this winter was and other things going on its hard to get excited at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if there was one last hit of snow though. I know there are still several places in the UP one could ride.

With trail stops (bars & restaurants) closed, I won't make it.

I have an Ontario trip planned anyway - but that's likely to change due to the same reasons.

It would be great riding with everyone at home but nows not the time for an unnecessary few hundred dollar trip.

Done and in storage. Not happy about it, but it is what it is. Still shopping for another machine though!

Just a quick note:

If we do get 4in or so in Iggy, our trails will go right to very good condition overnight, the base is there, just need a fresh topcoat.

And, yes dine-in is closed in all of Michigan, but our main restaurants are all doing call-up to take out service.

Gas stations are all open and such as far as I know, but you want to fill that tanks in Gaylord on the way to the UP as gas is $0.50 a gal cheaper down there.
