    Almost 7000km this summer, pretty good considering I didn't commute (unemployed) and took care of 3 kids at home. Long weekend trips and daytrips put the miles on.

    2012 was one of my worst! Utah in the spring, one ride in the Crowsnest, and the odd Cypress hills run. Got a new-to-me bike, and promptly hurt myself within 8 km of riding it. Booo. I should get a couple more ice blasts in before the New year.

    Seasons Greetings, BackRoader.

    Those two pics were taken near "Herbster, Wisconsin" near Bayfield - See map. Take the Bark Point Road out of Herbster to the east, it follows Lake Superior and takes you to a small public access actually for pretty large boats. Myself and some other pie eaters stop there on our way to or from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Years back, me and the GF were vacationing and found the area to be great.

    I do spend lots of time in Northern, Minnesota though,
    typically staring across the water in your general direction... :evil

    I am about 6.5 hours south of the MN-Canada border but hunt and motorcycle up that way.
