Default Tuesday wheeling!!!

Been way too long...

UB and I ran up to Jenny Creek to break trail. The main road is still snowed in with a few drifts up to the turnoff. Got in a bad way trying to follow Kevin but he got the 40 back to a safe place without incident. I did have to promise that no pics of Wild Rice would surface until it is purdy but, I'll tell you it is cool already. Simply amazing.

Great day for wheeling.

Not sure when the new sign was put up but I like it. That is one reason we try to break trail early. It sets a precedent for the year and keeps people on the road.

I was just thinking if anyone has gone up there to see what the conditions are. Sweet!

I know...you guys suck.

for going wheeling when I had to be at work and because I've been around this club for a few years now and I've never actually seen Wild Rice...

Looks like fun! Glad you guys were able to get up there and enjoy it!

And I can say that Wild Rice is looking super sweet...

Yup, kept Mikey entertained all day riding shotgun! There was a chance of getting into awkward situations with the vehicles which might be seen by some as willful vehicle breakage.....you wouldn't have liked it...
