    I'm in now, the trip to Kenora is on hold.

    Lutz, you going? Should we meet in Lutsen and ride down together?

    Arrowheadrider: When/where do we meet? Two Harbors maybe, like Judy's or Betty's?? Looks like you're the tour guide so you get to decide on meet time/location.

    Yep, I'm in for Saturday.

    MikeS - Lutsen would be a fair bit out of the way for me this trip...as I reside in Two Harbors, I only work in Schroeder...and I hope not to be at work on Saturday.:wink:

    arrowhead rider - along with meeting time/place, any idea on distance between gas stops? Will we even hit one? My tank capacity is really sucky - only about 100 road miles before it's bone dry. I'll likely carry an extra gallon on the back as insurance.

    OK Lutz, so now I get it. Being an old fart, I have dementia...... or at least it's a good excuse, whether true or not. Your "Lutz" name caught me with the wrong association.

    So now you guys can get back at me and say, "Let's meet for breakfast at 7AM..." Even if you do say exactly that, for spite, I will be there whenever you say, Cook County time of course.

    Dimentia, eh? ...I'll take that. Lord knows I'll need to make an excuse or two now and then. ...Of course mine are always true. :evil

    Hey guys. The route I was thinking of taking is straight north of my house. How about if I pm directions to my house and we take off from here. I could have some coffee ready. The route I was thinking would lead up to where Mike and I rode some weeks back. There are lots of trails and roads in that area. Nearby is food and gas so that shouldn't be a problem. Mike why dont you pick the time since you are the furthest away.

    Great ride today! 120+miles. Good variety of terrain. Thanks to lutz for waiting for us occasionally on the trails! Thanks to MikeS for helping me get unstuck.-more than once! Everyone had the pleasure of dropping there bikes at least once! I hope you guys got more sympathy for your sore muscles at home than I did!

    AND the real truth is that I dropped my bike in EXACTLY the same spot as Arrowhead, plus two more times, and also joined the "get stuck club". Both you guys left me in the dust/mud/ruts, so I have to thank you both for waiting for ME. Great fun; blacktop to gravel roads to skidder trails to ATV trails.

    I don't ever bother saying anything about sore muscles to my wife, the ultra-marathoner/triathlete.

    Pictures later, if I can figure out how to post them so others besides me can view them.
