Greetings and welcome!

It is over. The GFS is showing winter returning for a couple of weeks from St Patties Day toward the end of the month complete with snow and cold, but unless we get a whole bunch of it, it will be too little too late.

At this point the frost is coming out of the ground and the mud is a foot deep. There are puddles, large and small, and the sun is warm. Even if we got a whole bunch of snow, the ground under it is like Jello, so I doubt that trails would reopen. I know, I know, never say never.

We knew that we were in for a big ElNino this winter, and that those usually end badly for snowmobilers. We can add this one to the tally. I -am- expecting a very different winter next year.

Unfortunately, it is now time to get out the StarTron and fogging oil, and thank you all very much for your support. Have a good summer, and thank you for visiting!

Greetings and welcome!

We have had a cold week and really didn’t go backwards much. The sun is getting hot and the day is 2 hours longer than it was in December, so roads suffered a little.

We have 1-3 or 2-4 coming starting around sunset. That will help the cause.

Dan Guendert found good conditions north of Benson Lake Rd yesterday, that would be my destination.

The way that the weather looks, this weekend is probably last call. here are 3 big storms showing up in the next few weeks, but right now they look like rain and warm weather. While one of them could go our way, it isn’t in the forecast, yet. Ride while you can.

Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!
