Madeline Island.

Pulled the pin on a new trailer yesterday, so we have a nice big 6x10 enclosed cargo trailer to toss all the shit into. Should cut down on the overloaded bikes and increase the 'hang on, I'm gonna try something' on the ride up...

What I was thinking. Anyone with shit in the trailer needs to ease the transition across the water. Unless Lobster is paying again, then fug it.

Not bad, actually. $24 return fare for the truck/trailer, plus the pax fees, according to the ferry website.

7 per person, 24 for the truck, 24 for trailer.

I am riding up and will carry all my own stuff except beer, and that's covered by virtue of it being my equipment that is dispensing it

See? I'm just getting warmed up there and being the responsible one by doing the good deed of holding the riff-raff down.

The rallies just haven't been the same without number8teen.

Drif...thanks for the offer of the trailer...Here's the deal..if we're hauling a trailer we can try to stuff as many bikes in/on as possible to save $$$ Maybe we can even lift a couple small bikes and strap them to the top of the Lobster mini van.
