I would have to agree with Paul....four of us rode down to Elbow Lake and back yesterday afternoon we ran into a ton of traffic but the trails were holding up really good. A few corners were getting bad but all in all pretty good. The lake was really good also....lots of sleds out on the lake yesterday. It was a really nice day to be out riding yesterday.

I really hope it stays....

Looks good!! Lets hope it stays this time. Is there any off-trail around there??[/b]
That picture is from where we had just gotten back on trail. :yes:

The man knows his way around The Hought, not to mention that we are off trail junkie's,
so if off trail is what your looking for you've come to the right place. :thumbsup:

All in all the trails are not really bad. That pic was taken on the 6/7 trail just south
of Reedsburgh Dam. The swamp is open just north of the dam. The $$ I just spent
washing all the mud out of my front suspension proves it. :wall:

Tons, tons, tons, tons, tons, of traffic yesterday around there. It wasn't even that busy
the last two years during Tip Up Town. :Wow1: :thumbsup: to the H.L. club for all they
do. Grooming the trails WITHOUT snow really does have it's benifits and it shows. :yes:
We never did get north of the lake but Sled Solutions did and says it was really good as
well, that way. The lake is pretty nice also. The base is all ice so be prepared in those
corners!! Hope it sticks and stays for The Assult On Houghton Lake 3. :beer_cheers:

Going back up on Tuesday with my father. Need to ride more. :wall:

Off trail riding was exceptional around Houghton/Higgins this past weekend. Sunday was a ZOO..Never had my hand up so much on the trails. We finally jumped off and putzed in the woods. . Kids like getting stuck and digging out anyway..... My son took a stump through the belly pan. Nice!

Glad to hear no one got hurt this weekend (yet).

One last thing...Will Higgins Lake PLEASE FREEZE !!!!!!!!!!!! GEEZ come on already.......what a pain in the ass it is getting to the trail from the SE corner of Higgins... Sorry my 2 cents....

Me and my dad are planning on heading up there tomorrow to visit a friend that has a cabin on the lake. Ive never ridden the area, last year we were in Cadillac. I am pretty pumped. Lucky we are going, I have been very sick the last two days but went to the ER last night and got a shot. So i should be good to go. Glad to hear the trails are good!

There were a ton of people out on Sunday. My buddy and I headed back around 11:30 am and headed up to Gaylord for the sno cross. It was sweet, a friend races the Pro 600 Stock and Mod and it was great. I love the smell of the pits, all that race gas.

Higgins is a spring fed lake and the water turns over very quickly, thats why its so clear. Its also deep in a lot of areas I think? Soon enough though.

I was trying to convince my buddy to come home with that thing!! Nice ride for that price. Too much sled for me.



I rode Saturday and Sunday and this morning. This morning was great. I went out solo because my buddy was too hung over. I left from Lake James and picked up 6 west at the power lines to 655 and 654 and just had a blast back there. I was the first out on #6 and the groomer did such a nice job. I almost smacked a deer doing about 70 mph on 6, ouch! I wish I would have had internet up there because it would have been fun to meet up with some of you HCSers for a rip.

Any local Shelby TWP or Macomb people want to do a local ride tomorrow in the fresh stuff? Just have to stay away from the cop shop 1/4 mile away from my house! Have a good New Years everyone.
