The more, the merrier. We had 7 or so inches and got hit with the same mild spell. All the snow on Lake Winnebago melted and is glazed over and we're looking at low teens/single digit lows this week. We should be at a foot of ice by the weekend.

I walked the lake by Wendts today. There were a few people out there on quads and one bike. The ice looked real good except where we were riding last weekend. That looked like hell.

I was thinking of taking a drive out to Crooked Lake or something after work one day this week. If there is no snow it could be a fun hour or two playing around. Perhaps Elkhart otherwise

Maybe the river by me will freeze smooth with no snow too... I'll walk it with the pup first to see where it's "safe"

I'm thinking about running laps Saturday. Without the snow, I can't see them needing that many people for the 3 hour.

Info for all the rider out on the Bago. We lost Jesse to his battle with Cancer mid day today.
This is him. Year before last. Great guy, he will be missed.

Pretty accurate yet. You know, cuz MF'n is pretty easily represening MF1's.

although, a home built tire on MF1's is going to be pretty fucking awesome so maybe that part should be updated.

what I'm saying is, where we riding saturday?

6wheel drive R/C plow with 10' blade.

We just need to adapt some type of watering device behind it.

50" is 4 feet, 2 inches, not 10 feet

So it's like a really fancy ATV with more expensive shit to break.
