Take and post more pictures. Maybe you will get some of us more motivated.

Is there any motels near or not far from the trails up there you would recommend?

OK the forecast threw a wrench in my plans for saturday ,,,So hopefully I will get some time off on friday afternoon and get out and ride in the fresh snow 

 

Walleyehooker  there are no lodges/hotels with good adjacent trail access in the Duluth area   ,,,there are some up the shore with better access to trails at Two Harbors and further up the shore ,,,Im just glad I live up here so I dont have to trailer too far ,,but there are times I wish I had some one to ride with each time I hit the trails

To bad Randy, lets set some kind of date for a group run to see who all can make it. Maybe with enough notice more could come.

I think I'm good with either of those as well. Wonder about Explorer & Gary, does BD still have a sled? Maybe Walleyehooker can find a room up there or load up on my trailer on the way by?

I was gonna take the sled up to Ely and hit Burntside for lakers this weekend but the weather has me cancelling that too.

I am looking at maybe heading up there next saturday and spending the night and make it a "fish n sled" weekend. Fish during the day and sled after dark.  We'll see how that works out tho.

Starting on Jan 30th I'm only gonna be able to ride on Sundays.... Junior has B-Ball tournaments every saturday thru the middle of April

Boy it would be nice to live close like you guys and have to drive home the two hours! :( Good thing I don't start work on Mondays until 1:00pm and can sleep in! :) Any of those days works for me. Would be nice to get a few sleds on this ride. Anyone else out there with a sled can tag along! ;)

Sounds fun! Where do you all meet?

Still hashing out dates and details but it maybe either above Two Harbors parking lot or above Twig I think. I'll let the guys that live up there post meeting details once we can pick a day and time.

That would be ok but since I'm in Brooklyn Center it maybe easier to swing by you? Your still out past Dayton right? But what ever would work.

I'm still in the same place. I thought maybe you went over and up 35 or do you go up 169 and cut over.

When I go I take 610 over to 35. If I picked you up we could cut over at hwy 10 or 95 up at Princeton over to 35.

Either way works for me if this pans out. I am so bored with this winter I went out and bought another Harley yesterday. I'm starting to think its going to be an early spring/summer.

OK, something just came up last night and Junior will not be playing in the tournament the weekend of the 30th (has a mandatory church confirmation deal that friday/saturday) so I can hit it on the 30th if it makes it easier on all.

 

If someone wanted to trailer to Cloquet I would have one spot on my trailer or I could load up with someone else and split gas too.   I can almost taste the Trainwreck :grin::grin:

 

I got 4" at my house as of last night.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
