Well it was a great ride for sure. We had a great time. We had a great group today. We had Todd(Toddmeister), Wife Linda, Randy(Wink), Curt(Grizz), Mark(Gunner05), Wife Danielle and son Matt, Jerry, Cook, Fritz, Me(conniver04), Wife Sheila, and son Matt(skidoodude04). We covered some miles and had our own poker run. Matt gunner05's son won with 3 of a kind and didn't even buy a round at the finishing spot Were gonna have to teach him how to treat people sometime soon . The trails were awesome. We went North toward Hulbert, Strongs area and everything was great. We seen one wreck on the trail and I sure hope that guy is ok. well time to go and hope to see everyone soon.

Here are a few pics from our group ride on Saturday. These were taken atop an old quarry, and you can see the Soo to the north on a clear day...

First pic is looking out at the quarry.

Second is a partial group shot
From left, Yours truly, Fritz, my lovely wifey, Jerry, Matt (front), Rich (behind Matt), Sheila, Gunner05, Matt, and Danielle

Third pic is Gunner05 and Conniver

Fourth pic is Jerry and Wink

We met up at the Deere Feed Stop about 10:15 am, headed out and went to Trout Lake, stopped at the Buckhorn to warm up and draw our first card. (We had our own "Fun Run", thanks for setting this up Wink!) Winks friend Curt had a sore back from the previous day's ride and he decided to go back to St. Ignace to keep an eye on the hot tub. Hope your back feels better Grizz! Next we went on to Shirley's in Hulbert. Between Trout Lake and the Hulbert/Strongs/Trout Lake tee, we passed an accident scene, did not look good. Several other sleds were already at the site, so we slowly drove by, and then continued on to Hulbert. Had lunch at Shirley's, drew our cards, and then we moved on to Strongs and stopped at the Crosscut (it is open again) to warm up and have a drink, and draw a card. Gassed up and continued towards Raco, but then headed South on the Dick Road back towards the Scenic Quarry Lookout. After the quarry stop we continued back to Moran and met up at the Rock Bottom for dinner and drinks. Also drew our last cards. Gunner05's son Matt ended up winning with 3 of a kind, Congrats Matt!

Another fun successful ride, trails were nice, and it was COOOLLLLLDDDDDD! Thanks to the Straits Club for hosting this forum and allowing all of us to meet up, ride and have a great time!!!!!!!

I can't say this enough times. This forum has made me some good friends and great times not only riding but in the off season also. Thanks Neil and the entire club for this forum. We had another sucessful trip meeting together.

I sure hope that guy on the trail is ok. It didn't look real good but I pray it came out ok. Be safe out there all.

Had a great ride with all of you. Met some more great people. The snowmobile fraternity is fantastic.
Kenny & Sheila and Mark & Danielle you have some young men to be proud of. Today, most kids that age are spoiled, whiny little %#$@&*'s. I enjoyed being around your boys. They can ride with me anytime.
Had some bad luck Sunday. Curt and I were riding towards Engadine and I roached a piston. Curt towed me into Engadine and that wonderful Jerry brought a trailer and took me back to St. Ignace. Great to have friends like that. Will have to go back and get my sled this week or I have some friends coming back from Seney on Sunday that offered to pick it up for me. Not sure yet what the cause may have been, but I'm suspecting a cracked throttle body boot. Will do a pressure test when I get it home. Hopefully when I get it done I will still have some money left to come back up.
Thanks again to all of you for your new friendship. Looking forward to more rides in the future.

Wink, Thank you very much. You don't know how much that means to Sheila and I. We had a great time also and you, Curt, and Floyd are welcome with us anytime.

Sorry to hear about your breakdown. That Jerry sure is a good guy. I will be going up this weekend and could bring it back for ya Wink. If your other deal doesn't work out or if you need anything just say so and I will get it done.

Thanks for the kind words Wink. Danyele, Matt, and I had a great time on the ride. Man, that was a cold (brrrrrrrr!) ride home from the Rock Bottom Sat. nite for sure. Matt said anytime you want to have another poker run, he's all in! I did inform him however of the admin costs associated with winning (ie: buying a round at the last stop) !

Wow, what can I say other than a great ride with some truly GREAT people. I know it's been said already but many THANKS to the Straights Club for this message board! Linda, you truly are a 'hardcore sledder' riding two up in that cold weather for sure. I guess it helped that you had great windblock in Todd

Well, when I finally got out of bed about 10:30 am (didn't set the alarm Kenny ), Danyele and I got around to some riding before ending up at the Rock Bottom for the AFC championship game. Matt stayed at the room since there was a high rpm issue on the ZR.

Here's a few pics to share. We actually found some untouched powder about a mile back off the burma grade.

I thought I'd post one more pic before bedtime (still wound up from the trip and ride home)

If anyone can guess correctly what happened in this pic, I'll make sure to have your name on a beer of your choice at the Rock Bottom next time UP.

Someone fell off their sled

I know, here's your sign.......

I like playing on the forest roads off the Burma grade, that is a fun spot and the snow is usually deeper around there

Wifey didn't complain too much about the big wind block in front of her on Sat...

Matt and I rode on Monday morning, him on my F5 and I rode the REV. All I can say is WOW, what a nice ride. Matt loves the F5 so that goes to him. Now I need to do is find another REV for Danyele

Its amazing what my mind can do when someone offers a beer to win a trivia question.

Got some friends who are going to pick my sled up Sunday on their way home from Seney. Anxious to get it home and diagnose the problem. Already have parts lined up including re-nicked cylinder if I need it.
