Plenty more where this came from! This Sunday I'll be painting a roof in Star Lake (see what happens when I take a ride???) but if you want to see some of what the area has to offer in person let me know, would be glad to show folks around :)

We did it last year, made a looonnggg loop out of it on the TW200s, and I'll do it again, too..

Would be glad to have some company, as I'm sure operose would, too. We tend to not have schedules that line up so well these days, but when they do it ends up being a blast.
Kiss your wife and kids and tell them you are taking off for the weekend and let's ride south on Saturday afternoon and find somewhere to camp for the night. Gotta be in Star Lake early on Sunday morning but you could run over to dad's or hit the mines or something and we could take some random long way back towards home when I've finished up. You know you want to :)

I'd like to think about some good spots before hand so here's some things to think about:

Same area-ish or want to see other places?
Pavement, Smooth Gravel, Rocks&Mud, mixture percentages? Preferences?
How long do you wanna be up here messing around?
Do you care about seeing cool things along the way or just want to bust out some miles on fun trails/roads?

Is anyone riding this Saturday?

My wife & daughter are heading to the city and it looks like I might finally have an opportunity to get some seat time.

I work Saturdays until about 2pm but will probably be out again on Sunday.

This Saturday afternoon I went for an absolutely awesome off road ride, then setup camp for the night and Jontow met me around dusk. Sunday we went to help some family with stuff and then did some more awesome riding on the way back towards home. Absolutely beautiful weekend for riding but Saturday night it hit about 50F and we got a little chilly in the hammocks :)

All my rides have been with the geezer brigade this year (I don't consider myself a member yet). Something a little more spirited would make for a welcome change. So let me know.
