So this is what you do when there is no snow and the Patrol Sleds are collecting dust...switch to Meteorologist. :smilielol:

Here's wishing you a Happy New Year buddy :beer:

Hope you guys have a safe and incident free season when the snow finally comes.

Keep the nitwits in line :frech32:

Was at Deer/Sled camp SW of Rudyard yesterday (Sat) - they got 4-6" overnight Friday-Saturday. Saw SLED TRACKS on trail 47 where it travels along Mackinaw Trail. Didn't take the sleds up...don't know if I would have rode with the little bit that was there. But is sure was nice to see everything all white for a change. Heck - a guy could have railed Mackinaw Trail all the way from 123 to Rudyard.

Hoping that this is a start ...

Happy New Year, All
