This was our first time (hopefully not our last this year)to the Keweenaw. I had both boys with (12 and 20)we have a blast! We stayed in Houghton and rode up to Copper Harbor on Friday http://www.johndee.com/discuss/messages/91027/102897.jpg Saturday we went south and played around trail 120 and 121, seems the only sled that got stuck was the one with the oldest child on it. HUMM! http://www.johndee.com/discuss/messages/91027/102895.jpg We rode down to get gas and lunch at the Wildlife Filling station (great food and great service!! The beef stew was perfect) I believe we got to the station as the owners were heading out for a ride. I had to close the Boy's mouths as Lori, (I think?) rode off on her 159"(?) custom painted sled http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif Again, what a great trip. I read someones definition of addiction and had to laugh, it so fits. Addiction= driving 800 miles round trip to ride 250 miles http://www.johndee.com/discuss/messages/91027/102896.jpg

I had an awesome time! My dad is the one who posted the pictures and provided ,my little brother and I, a trip that I'll never forget! I don't think I have ever been stuck that many times with a smile on my face, well except that last time! ;)

Conditions were great up there. We just got back as well. I was impressed with how well the snow held up to the East.

Saw Lori's sled at the Parkview on Wednesday. Both those sleds look pretty cool.

wiggsfive, nice pics, someday I will learn how to post , then all will be sorry, as I have years worth of guests shots that they'd be proud of or not! Wish I could have met you as I like to meet the people that stop in, and enjoy our area. The boys will always remember their trip,we took our daughter and boyfriend out west and I think that will be in their memories to tell their kids someday!I'm hoping to get time this summer to finish my custom paint job, I had a nice hood done for this year ,but I changed brand so it's hanging in the office. I thought I'd do a mural of a dragon to confuse people a little more,so then I'd have Arctic cat colors, a dragon, then I'll have to come up with something to plug Yamaha ( NO INSULT INTENDED ,but a little boat ancher for my bumper, maybe?) Just kidding all in fun! Glad you had a safe trip, hope you didn't encounter rude people on the trails as I did after leaving the Parkview the other day, Two ---- racing side by side coming out of a corner, sounds like a good plan? Oh well, no damage done, a little sign launge that they couldn't see as I had mits on instead of gloves, and I didn't have to ditch this time!

My son will always remember his first trip to the UP, and the damage he did! He wants to go back up!
