Nice interview with Bob on Channel 6.

He cleans up well!

Hard to believe this is still news though...

I saw less people hand over plow money this year than ever, but I'm sure I missed a few donations.

I wouldn't mind a small plow on my truck, but driving 45 minutes each way eats enough gas as it is, nevermind the big investment in the plow itself.

We'll see what next fall brings around, I have no intentions of giving up ice riding - it's too damn much fun!
But I do miss the days when there were 20 members of Team Nunbus out there riding and bullshitting until dark

I missed the ice this year. As long as the ICB was out I didn't see the need to come and plow and drink and not ride. My elbow should be riding ready by next month I hope. And the bike will have all new engine stuff. I liked the big group of us also. I know there is another location that is AMA screws only. Last year sucked a little when I would plow and by the time I got out riding the Canadians had fluffed up the track. I liked plowing for the events this year.

May have some field days coming up.....

I know of the super secret AMA only track. To each their own, but I have a lot more fun on MF1's, and those who have ridden MF1 equipped bikes like em. Also, me riding MF1's is not = to fast guys riding MF1's

You ol dinosaurs need to evolve People probly bitched about 10" of suspension travel when that came out too

Donations for Bob accepted via Paypal papalobster@yahoo.com

He just called. He talked to the DNR to find out about fines and what not. He's got 30 days to get it out before fines start accumulating

Little donation sent your way from myself and the guys that I ride with. I can say from all of us we hope you keep riding, it is always more fun to ride when the community is bigger. See you next year.

The banana is out, not sure final bill. They're waiting for the boss to get back from vacation to figure it out.

Thank you for the donations.

While I am taking very well, mostly due to being covered, Bob is not. Positive thinking and prayers are also appreciated.
