The camp is gone? Sorry to hear that.  If your ever touring thru the northwoods of Wisconsin- your welcome to stay at ours

Yep, sold the camp about 5 Years ago... Now we travel on the bikes and rent other peoples vacation properties in search of a place to retire to and build another home.

Here (occasionally) :bye1:   

I've been busy.  A bit late in life, but I'm going for my Masters.  Why not?   :shrug:

Here's a pic of my boy (now 20!)  He wasn't even around yet when we started on these boards.  :ohmy:

I seem to remember an early picture of him... I'll have to see if I can find it :rolleyes:

I'll check with Wolfie or whatever his handle was when he was here... They were buddies of some sort.

Still wander in here from time to time.
Still wander around NW Wis on a sled in the Winter
Still wander around the woods in a groomer with the wolves on Sunday evenings. Our club ordered a new 6130 John Deere for delivery later this summer.
Our trails were open 9 weeks this winter. Groomed all but one of those weeks.
Took a road trip to Brainerd MN on Sunday. Came home with an 18 - 900 ACE Renegade Enduro
The 2012 - 1200 GSX is going down the road. It's broke in at 10,200 or so.

Hey Dude,  Sorry to hear about the John Deere acquisition, Glad Mercer SnoGoers seem to be trying to get away from the tracked farm tractors - they cant do half the trails with them because they are so heavy, unless you like riding on roads.  They had a new tucker at the january club fest and the drivers were talking about how much better it is with half of the weight ,  Shoot I remember watching the groomer drive across Big Arbor Vitae lake a long time ago - all the lights rotating. as they got bigger and heavier via the tractor lobby they just became a safety hazard. be nice if the clubs could get back to grooming frozen soft areas

I remember those days too Andy. I also remember a few years ago when the Cruisers put a groomer through the ice on the west end entrance to Big Arb.

snogoers put a couple thru the swamps - but they were all the tractor types.  they got an all-trac a few years ago for the trails around the flowage - need a couple more and ditch the tractors imho

We are 3 years into our first Soucy tracked tractor (4 quad track) and are happy with it. The reason for going into another.
We run one wheeled tractor on our 40+ miles of RR grades.
No rubber tracks don't climb icey hills like cleated tracks. But studs do wonders.
To us a Tucker is useless in the summer.  We mow about 130 miles of trails and grade over 40 miles. Something a Tucker can't do.
Down the road a bit maybe, we may get a used hydro-static twin tracker for our 4th short run unit. (Prinoth - Piston Bully -etc) We spend time packing with two club sleds and a roller to freeze things down. So far........... Nothing down.
We don't get the bigger heavier 175 hp version.  Ours are a little smaller, lighter.
This year with the lower snow levels White Thunder Riders did more grooming with their 4 WD tractors, something they normally can't do.

First time back in a long time. Had to research my password!! Sold the NY property after the "Safe Act" was passed. I didn't want to become a felon to NY state. Still go up to visit friends once in a while. Sold the sleds after the NY property sold.
