    A few years back, my son and I were able to make a trip together for our first real ride. He had been riding for a few years but at 16 , we were now ready for the UP. We met up with a group of guys I had ridden with before and we had the luxury of staying at the <font color="0000ff">Tiltin&#39; Hilton</font>

    By luxury I mean we had a warm place to sleep. Yes we had elect. and wood burner for heat ,but that was it.&#40;our host was nice enough to leave his back door open to his house for the other modern conveniences&#41;He also had a nice pull thru <font color="0000ff">heated workshop</font> for any repairs needed which sure beats bare handin&#39;it in the cold

    And being on a dead end road, the trail was at our doorstep. Each of the 5 days we were there, this was the starting point for the 8 to 12 sleds going out. Now xxx is not your typical leader of the pack. He was 70 plus yrs old but didn&#39;t ride like it.&#40; I can only hope&#41;. This is a guy that knows every trail and non-trail that comes with years of experience of riding the area. And he sure didn&#39;t need one of those GPS things. Our rides were a <font color="0000ff">mixture of everything.</font>

    This was a close call.. his track locked up !

    We usually had a destination for lunch. Big Bay or Michigamme or maybe a <font color="0000ff">trailside lunch</font>

    Since that trip our accomodations have been <font color="0000ff">updated</font> to a place up the road

    We did our share of running em fast and hard, but to get off the beaten track was a unique experience to share with my son who now knows what real riding is !

    Thanks John, for providing a place to share and enjoy our adventures and memories together !

    This is an excellent picture journal. I hope there are others that take this idea and run with it.

    Thanks for the pics.
