4th of July weekend

Recommended Posts

We have some friends coming here Sat morn at 07:00 to meet up with us and the neighbors. Then we will ride over into WI and meet up with 2 other couples and then just go on a three day ride. No plan, no reservations, just doing whatever the heck we feel like! Any one else have a "no plan" ride coming up? They are a lot of fun!!! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

I was debating on taking the bike to the Fergus Falls area when we head up there Friday afternoon. But with 2 days of rain forecasted, I'm not so sure right now.

I've never done the extended "no plan" type of ride. I have had many days where I've just ridden where ever the road takes me.

Be safe this weekend.

I'll be making the 200 mile journey home this AM. Hopefully I'll miss the majority of the traffic.

I put on 805 miles in 6 days while only riding four of those six. I still managed to put in 34 hours of work too.

I put on about 500 in 3 days. 203 each way to my destination and an extra 100 just cruising around the Ottertail Lakes area.

I may be making a day trip tomorrow to who knows where. We haven't decided where we're going yet. I'm kind of hoping to head back down to SE MN to hit some of the roads around Pine Island, Milleville and maybe across the border from Red Wing into Sconnie land.

I didn't see your post until the morning of our ride Jim. By that time, we had already set our plans/route.

By the time we arrived home, we had 305 miles logged in for the day. I may be looking to do the same route this weekend if anyone is interested. There's a couple stretches of road that leave a little to be desired, but for the most part, we had a great ride.

There were 37 bikes I think it was so we made some money for breast cancer. I had a pair of 5's so I won nothing!!! Did win a cargo net on a card draw... you can never have too many of those! Next Saturday is the Le Center firemans pork chop run, I have heard that is a great time but I have to be at the St Peter Legion at 2 to open it and the manager needed a day off for a wedding... not his though... Take care and N Joy the Ride././Jimbo

    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?
