    Hey Luke, I live over Brimley way, usually ride from Raco westward. All of the guys I rode with have quit riding, and they are 35 or younger, I'm 60 and can't imagine not riding, oh I have a 450x honda, and can't wait till the snow melts.

    And the snow just got started. It will be another long winter waiting for ride time.

    Do we have any inmates living near Houghton/Hancock? I may be relocating to that area pending the outcome of a (hoped for) job offer. Im a troll now (east of Gaylord), but lived in Marquette and later Ironwood many years ago.

    There is a list of inmates and their location in the very first post of this thread.

    Just what the UP doesn't need..... another Troll! :lol3

    Thanks Bob. I hadn't seen the Yooper Inmate list before. A few in the area.

    Chris, I'm still waiting on offer details. Who knows, maybe it won't be financially to my advantage to relocate. If so, I have no problem staying put.

    I'm getting close Chris! I finished all the honey do projects and have moved on to the garage. Should be able to ride here in the spring.
    I wouldn't mind living up in the area by Houghton/Hancock too. We have some close family friends who live in Calumet. They are from the area too.

    The UP is safe from this Troll invading. No deal on that job. Oh well. I'll be back some day.

    Absolutely Bob. I rode the UPAT with my wife this fall. Fun ride. I'd really enjoy exploring north of 41 towards Huron Mt
    Club, North of Mt Arvon, Big Eric's etc.

    I would love to! We'll see if it can come to fruition in the next calendar year.
