All this talk about Worlds Best Donuts has me excited to be headed that way in a month. If you are in the GM area, ride by the Municipal Campground and look for a Texas Flag by our Airstream, and stop in and shoot the shit. I will also have a ADV sticker on a TX. flag emblem there somewhere to locate me.

I plan on bringing some Lone Star Beer for something you cannot find in MN. Look forward to meeting y'all soon.

Sat ride

LDHack & Arrowhead met for skizzle/donuts and rode. We succeeded in making it from the Gunflint east to the Camp 20 road via the road that runs east, on the north side of the South Brule River. Does that make sense to anyone else besides me and Arrowhead? After all that riding, about 1 1/2 hours, my starving partner who forgot to pack any nutrition wanted to head to Hovland for supplies. We did that, and ate pie and cinnamon roll. After food we headed back up the Arrowhead Trail to the Ringo Road. Spent a lot of time along the Pigeon River, including the two overlooks. We found Partridge Falls after a false start, the Grand Portage Trail at several spots, and rode on the Cowboy Road. After more searching and riding, we discovered we had already been to Ft. Charlet and the end of the Grand Portage, a destination of our ride. We even rescued a fellow on a 4 wheeler who crashed in to a downed tree and tipped his machine over. He couldn't get it un-stuck, then couldn't get it untangled from the branches after we got it off the tree. Continued on to the old Outlaw Bridge location, the original international border crossing on old Hy 61. Snooped around there, then rode south to Portage for more grub. Arrowhead continued to Ontario to visit Pigeon Falls from the free side, and I headed home like the responsible adult that I am.

I didn't bring a camera, nor did I bring bug dope. I had food with me, and offered myself as food for the blackflies. Arrowhead has the bug dope plus a camera, and he also has all the pictures. He has a really kool camera, and it's pink!

I tipped over only once, and no one saw it except the Border Patrol remote cameras on the Cowboy Road. We had at least one small stream crossing because of a washed out culvert, plus plenty of other dual sport stuff. The day was sunny, the scenery wonderful, and the riding just perfect. The blackflies were thick, but they can't keep up with a motorcycle, although I had to stop for one that got inside my partially open helmet, survived the impact, and began sucking blood from my ear.

Sounds like a good voyage. Couldn't have beat the weather today...unless one is of the opinion that this was indeed too hot. Quite a jump from the 40s & 50s we've been getting used to.

Here are some pictures of this weekends ride taken with yes a pink camera as MikeS was nice to point out! I thank my daughter for being kind enough to borrow it to me. Had a wonderfull ride. The weather was perfect and Mike(You know the one who remembered to bring nutrition)(although he found out bruised bananas don't keep well in heat) and I seen some beautifull scenery and historical places. Also the roads we chose were as fun as they get. over 500 miles for my self this weekend with over 300 with my daughter on back. Mike and I would have put on more miles but his bike develops a strong pulling force whenever we ride by an eating establishment! - C-zulu- We haven't heard from you in a while. New woman in your life or what!

I heard you were sick. Hope you're feeling better.

I finally understand the advantage of owning but one bike - I can only have one broken bike at a time! Of course, I do still aspire to fill my garage to the point where I can break a couple, and still be left with a couple more good ones to choose from.

MikeS, glad you found Partridge Falls. Sounds like a neat ride along the Pigeon River.

Life threw me a loop recently... quit my job and will be moving to Red Lodge, MT in a couple of weeks. Hopefully I'll get a chance to ride up to the arrowhead again before I leave, I may be able to make the shindig.

I hope she is too! Kids are so fun and I have never had to drop a hobby or change plans because of them. Whether it's motorcycling,hiking,canoeing or even brewing beer i have always found a way to include them and I'm sure you will too.
