O.K. I'll start.

What do you do for recreation when the snowmobile season is over?

I ride my ATVs and side x side. I also spend time on the lake cruising on my pontoon and will pull it out and go to other lakes in the area. Take short weekend trips around the State with my wife and friends. Dinner out at different restaurants two or three times a week.

Of course being retired gives me the time. Everyday is Saturday for me.

Unfortunately for me it is work. Being in construction, my winters are slow and the rest of the year is crazy silly.
But I do try to spend time in the Wisconsin Dells and Straits area in July and August.
And of coarse spend all summer working on the sled. This year will be headlight delete, belt drive and 2016 a-arms and spindles.

Re: 176 active members
I have all my sleds prepped and ready to go as soon as the first snow permits.

Going to power wash and shine up the pontoon today....

Ok, I'll be next. This spring we are spending some money on the house, with new windows and a bathroom remodel. So no new toys for me this year.
Other than that, we go camping a few times. Go to some concerts, go to see Foghat next weekend. Weekend after that going to the Michigan antique festival in Midland, over 1,000 vendors with everything. My brother and I get a spot and make a few $. Been doing that since the late 80s.
Like to do some atving, finding time is the issue sometimes.
Try to go to a couple snow shows or swap meets. Went to one a few weeks ago.
Sometimes just sit in the backyard and have a few beers is good to.:D

Ramped up and working 6 days a week around here.

I was able to make a Tigers game Vs KC a couple weeks ago - they lost.

Working on getting some club stuff in order and looking at Summer work hitting very soon.

Well, got the sled maintenance done and will put them in storage this weekend until this fall.

Lots of projects around the house already done, more yet to do. Put a couple new windows in.

Routine maintenance on the vehicles, too. Still need to put some wax on them if it ever stays warm long enough.

Hope to get U.P. north a few times this summer...

I see the MSA snow show got moved to Oct 2-3 this year. Now conflicts with the Big Mac ATV ride... They moved it because the Milwaukee Snow show is Oct 16-18.

Have a great summer!

Re: 176 active members
Well that's just great. Our group already has rooms booked for the Bridge Trek.

Looks like I'll be missing the MSA show.

Re: 176 active members
That's dumb. They should have done their homework, as there are already a couple of events around the state that weekend.

Just like to say that is was sunny and 76 here in Iggy yesterday. I was with a guy from Newberry today that confirmed what the weather guessers said. Along the superior coast yesterday (Newberry area too) it was supposed to be close to 80d. Today - SNOW. Called us just to say it was a whiteout. It did hail on me in Iggy for just a few minutes. Ain't Michigan Grand!

We are in race season with a day or 2 of golf here and there. Not having the start we want but were in 8th and working forward. No time to do anything else.

Funny ending to the F1 race this morning. 99th Indy 500 starting in a few minutes. Then the Coke 600 this evening. Trying to draw a couple surveys in-between all of the racing action today. Kinda miss the TV in my office.
