Okay, let's see if the 3rd times a charm.....

Took advantage of the trails staying open a little longer this year and it was well worth the effort.

Rode last Friday and Saturday in the U.P. (April 4 -5). Stayed at Krupp's and enjoyed the warm temps and DEEP snow off trail. Even hooked up with Mr. Dee and Skylar on Saturday afternoon for some off trail excursions. Great weekend! Here are some pics. Enjoy and let's do it again next winter!

A must stop at the Rousseau Bar. Felt weird watching the White Sox and Tigers play baseball while on a snowmobile trip!

Headed down to Sidnaw for gas and then played off trail a bit near the Sturgeon River area. It was getting warm and the snow was acting like quicksand....which of course results in getting stuck.

Had a quick soda at Bear Belly Bar & Grill, then fortunately met up with John Dee, Sklar, Kim, Troy and Zach. Of course there were a few stucks and good laughs. Had a blast following these guys through the back country and can't wait to do it again.

Went to Copper Harbor / Brockway Mountain and then back to Phoenix to load 'em up and put 'em away for the summer. Great last ride and happy to log some miles in April!

Looks like you guys had a great time. Awesome pics! I was wondering if you need a CDL to drive that Renegade? It has to have a dozen wheels or more. lol
