I think most of us would accept lunch over hugs, Jared. Or maybe lunch and hugs? I don't know what panda's into.

All I know is there is a ton of snow in the UP and I don't have the itch yet. I'm not sure what is going on with me but maybe once I get the first ride in things will change.

I want this 60" plus an additional 2-3 feet in Buffalo to leave and come the fuck back over here.

I guess it's a good thing I still have a couple days of PTO. Might just disappear to northern WI for a long weekend sometime soon if the snow doesn't start amassing by the end of Dec.

I had friends riding before deer season in the UP. My friend's parent's camp west of Marquette Michigan got 41 inches of snow in the last week or so.

I only ride in Michigan and care about Michigan. Wisconsin is just the shithole I need to drive through to get to God's Country.

that's the only tough part- it's a cruise to the U.P. so you almost have to take a day off to make it worth it.

I did a few Friday to Sunday trips last year and it kicked my ass. I try and chase the snow and go up only when it is good. I think I'd look like a bit of a tool riding around IL or WI with a long track LOL.

In good weather conditions I can make it door to door in 6 to 6 1/2 hours. I have also ridden on part of a Sunday (when I go up Thursday) if it is worth it. We did it last year and hit miles and miles of untouched fire roads all morning so it was definitely worth it.

If you leave on Thursday night at a decent time, get up there at midnight or so, you can get three good days of riding in and come home Sunday and not burn a vacation day. For me I don't like using up too many days for a trip unless I'm going west.

It'll definitely whoop your ass, especially if you party like we do at night.

It definitely makes planning last minute trips nice. I leave the gear and sled there and just show up with a bag of whatever I need for the weekend.

11 hours is the worst LOL.

We ride only during the day (it isn't fun getting stuck in the woods after dark) and start throwing them down once we get home. I came across one too many accidents on the trail because people were riding drunk and as fun as it sounds I don't do it.

makes sense. im a big dude and can hold my own quite well- so just beers stop to stop with food-and im fine.

also we mainly trail ride around hayward or anywhere in wisco cuz you're basically restricted to just do that.


in the UP are you riding on public land or what is it?

A few beers is one thing but I'm talking about getting dickered LOL.

Yea, there is a lot of private land in Wisco so you're limited on where you can ride I hear. In the UP there is a lot of paper company land (there is conflicting info if you're allowed to ride it), state land, and even some private land we know we can ride based on the land owner permission. If the shit ever hits the fan up there I still know plenty of places I can ride legally. If those aren't options I'll just go west a few more times a year and be done with the UP. Right now I'm looking at an early/mid December trip to the UP and then to the Snowies between Christmas and New Years.
