Helped out JD today and Mezz and I took a group out to ride. We were fortunate enough to have John tag along with us until he had to bail to get the banquet stuff set up.. Mezz and I headed up to the Ramada and got there about 9:30 or so and then got the groups set and we took off and headed in a Northerly direction most of the day.. We had 5 people who went out with us and we took them to the Mason area to play for a while, then off to Keweenaw County via the Traprock valley area. We did run the pole line for a short time and then hit the Vansville bar for a coke and a pizza. We headed home but made a stop at the mouth of the Gratiot River where it dumps into Lake Superior.. Also, our friend Mark joined us for a bunch of the day.

So Here are some shots:
