    Awesome pictars!!!!!!

    I should be out by noon-ish.


    I'll ride some track but also have to go xc to visit several buddies out spearing. I hope the sleds packed or wore it down to ice along the shore.

    it was like a ghost town out there today.

    One guy plowed a big oval.

    The road course was great!!!

    I spent 4 hours in the saddle bucking snow in first and second gear to wot on the highway.:clap

    Dave, you have to show up when we are there:D

    The highway looks like perfect ice if it would just loop around a bit and start over:lol3

    yeah I was going crazy all day saturday looking at that beautiful sun and knowing ya'll were out riding.


    Saturday was our valentines day.




    It was fun cruising around on the roads once I located them. I covered both shores from the wayside to Wendts to fishermans to Jim/Lindas. I got some funny looks.:lol3

    Jeff, I think you should fly over every new track and start a data base. You can even name them:lol3 Then a site can be established with comments etc. on each and we can fine tune until the perfect track/tracks layout has been honed to perfection:deal


    Or we could just keep the steering loose on the jeep.:lol3

    Speaking of loose Jeep. Bob calls and says the plow doesn't go up as high as it did before. I told him to add some oil. Nope, he says I have to come look at it. I do, and the 2 mounting tabs up high are pulling away from the frame. The bottom can bulldoze dirt, but driving with the plow up is pulling it away from the truck frame. **sigh** I guess I'll go throw some steel and some weld at it.

    :thumb..BTW there was an oval just south of your track :dunno..I like the addition of the kiddie tracks :thumb

    you know how easy it would be to add some "obstacles" to a track?...:augie.

    BTW, go wiggle your plug...:lol3

    Fixed, I just had to spread the connector (male side) out a little. Very easy and no more wiggle.

    Male enhancement????:lol3

    I did many laps on that smaller oval.


    I think I also hit some of the roads you pictured.

    Some are even curvy.

    Hope it wasn't from the high speed BP run for brake fluid?
    It does seem to live a hard life, looks almost new in the pictures.

    I have a 1/2 assed plan on being out Saturday, but it kind of depends on spearing, bridges, and Jeeps holding plows up. I'll know for sure by Friday.

    In any event, I will be leaving by 2 or so.

    It would be pretty easy to use the existing track with a clean off. Also add maybe 1/4 mile or so off the corner where the pile is for the go around road. Higher speed right left into the hard left..... Just bend it right again and go out a bit with a few turns and straights.... Meet the track again after the negated turn...... Push a little of the pile onto the old turn to counter confusion....

    I have to check with the wife, but I might be able to ride an hour of so before sunset Friday. In theory I could have my truck on the lake by 3

    The Lobster way would be to punch a couple of holes in the grill and chain the top of the plow mount to the frame back near the firewall:rofl:rofl:rofl
