Nice, wish mine had that arm Velcro.

Also reminds me to re-waterproof mine again.


Edit: The collar snaps look useful too. Some nice improvements over the last few years on that jacket.

I see four National Forest Service campgrounds within about a 25 mile radius on the atlas. Chippewa River, Day Lake, Namekagon Lake, and Two Lakes.

Four or five more a little further out. I haven't scouted these out.

Supposedly those are special order - an extra 25 bucks or something for those. I didn't order them, but they put them on anyway, which I'm pretty happy about now that I have it. Call that a win.

All in all, pretty happy with this. Need to try it - so a nice ride is scheduled for friday - possibly to the Double D.

Which brings me to Get_Bents question........


The closest I camped to there was mineral lake, which was actually very pleasant. It's along County road Gg, about 10 miles west of Mellen.

Looks like the Great Divide District is the area closest to Hayward:

Oh wait, there's a picture. In an hour or so that will be downloaded, and I will be able to comment. In the meantime, here's some music........................

EDIT: Ah - there it is. Oh I say, how splendid. We should go there and buy some cheese. And liquor.

Deer suck. One committed suicide into my truck on the way home last night from work. My LH headlight is smashed and my front end is a bit F'd up. I was able to drive home without any problems though. Fixing the damage myself and just ordered a new headlight assembly off fleabay.

I haven't ran into one since I was 16 years old. Did I mention they suck? This is why I hate riding at night.
