2" of snow in the yard this morning. Gone by the time I got home from work. Haven't had snow this early out here for awhile. Bad omen

great day for a long ride

just got home from WAWA. went to pick up the bike i left with FINNDIAN this summer. great day for a long ride. started off cold and damp, the sun came out at WHITE RIVER and it turned into a good day for a ride.

a huge THANK YOU to FINNDIAN for doing some work on the bike but mostly for picking me up at 3;30 am at the bus depot. Yup, i took the GREYHOUND from thunder bay TO WAWA.

I MISS RIDING ALREADY, IT'S GOING TO BE A LONG WINTER

GORD i owe big time, hope that i can repay next year ( open tab at the madhouse?? or better yet....OPEN TAB AT DOG LAKE ??? )

It was good to see you again Feliz, even though it was a very quick visit. Glad you had a good ride home.

Hey Feliz, glad to hear you made it OK... I am not much on Bus riding.

A big thanks again for the evening out on the town. Janis and I enjoyed the visit.

That same morning all we got was a light dusting. I went out on the 250 first thing for some single-track action.




By noon it was all gone except a bit in the shaded areas.......
----------------------------------------------------------
yesterday was a much different story. i had 3 different bikes out for a jog

fall colors all but gone. The tamaracks are looking good.



so many cloudy cool days lately.....nice to get out riding

Looks like the snowmobile bridge over the Seine River coming out of Finlayson Lake.

Great pics!

Pretty foggy here Ron, supposed to rain tomorrow so the fog should clear up. The weekend is looking good, Sat to Mon, then crappy weather again.

Good luck getting out, do they pay you to stay?

If we can't get out, it means that the other crew can't get in, so yes, we are paid to stay,and keep the place running. The people who can't get in also get their regular pay....it's not like they have't gone to the airport to TRY to get here!
