How many miles this year?

Recommended Posts

Unfortunetley I only put on 25 miles this year (one sunday going out of my house). I usually do about 1,000 per year but this year both my yearly weekend trips got canceled due to lack of snow.

43.4

the first trip out for the season on my birthday (12/30) I put on about 4 miles, and got rained out, literally.

I drove the sled to work twice in the past two weeks and put on about 40 more miles. It's pathetic, we only had about two weeks this season where there was just barely enough snow to ride around town, and it got beat on pretty quick by a couple of sled events in town over the weekends.

This was a far cry from last season where there was rideable snow from just after Thanksgiving through mid-March.

60 on the new sled. Mostly running around a lake and one local ditch running day. Have to find out if there's warranty issues. grin.gif

225 miles on the other. One trip to LOW, driving around the lake because I was desperate, and last weekend 85 miles SW of the cities. Hit the MN river bottoms in the mix too and the riding was good!

I hope we get some snow out of this alleged storm this weekend....

The wife and I have both put on 845 miles this year. All but 20 of the miles have been in Michigan. Just came back from the Ontanogan/Gogabic area on Monday. Great snow conditions out there. With the warm weather they are getting this week the trails are probably getting bad now.

If you go to the UP stay to the north. The further south you go the less snow there is. From Calumet to Gogabic the trails were great for us. Down in the Watersmeet area the trails were getting a little thin. Lots of riders out there. Our best riding was in the morning before the trails were rode all day. The groomers were going around the clock to keep up. I am going to try to go to Hurley one more time this year.

Pray for snow this weekend. It would be nice to ride at home for a day. cool.gif

I have you all beat and I can't believe it!!!! 0.0 miles this year. Yes, it's true- I haven't even taken the cover off of my 2004 F6 Firecat once!! It will not be leaving the garage this winter no matter how much snow we get-it's too late now.

For the second time in the last six years my sleds have not been off the trailer. I am starting to learn however. This year I didn't start them in the fall so they're already summerized for this year.

75 so far, and that may be it since my pipe blew a hole in it, and the new pipe will not be in till the middle of march. I have never riden less than 800 miles a year. frown.gif

with this big snowstorm coming in now, it hurts that much more.

Now I'm up to 120 for the season. The trails are in great shape right now in the Detroit Lakes area. Lots of virgin powder out there this morning. Here are a few pictures from today.

    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
