GOOD RIDING – SUCCESSFUL MACHINE RECOVERY
Overall trail conditions are good. Keeping conditions at “good” because the snow is getting tired, trails are flat but snow is sugary in areas. We are down a machine with the Deere trying to cover 101 miles. Fortunately Trenary Northern Trails is doing what they can to help us on the West end. Looks like another week before the Bully is going again. In the mean time we will continue to groom and do our best with what we have. Yesterday we had a successful recovery of the Bully with help from Trenary Northern Trails and the DNR. We will post a full story on that involved process later. Keep the cold weather snow dancing going, Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!
