Trying to learn the metric system The thing I read about the snowfall was in cm, being a lazy American I didn't convert it to inches xD I'm up in Sault Ste. Marie, I can actually see the Canadian side from the student lounge at my college xD

ggriffin13 - Tecumseh, eh? Where do you normally ride? Apple? Mt. Holly? Or somewhere further North?

xG33kx - easy conversion to the metric system is 2.5x inches (actually 2.54 but who's counting!) you hit up searchmont from the Soo or do you go south to Nubs/Boyne/etc.?

Planning on probably going south a bit (heard there are some out west, have to research it) until I get my passport and all that fun stuff, then heading up to Searchmont or another one I heard a bit farther north/northwest.

Pretty good. Been going to PT. They just have me doing stretches and are giving me a shock treatment, ultrasound, and a great massage.

One of my muscles is badly knotted. The PT said, "Man, I do not know how you did this much damage from drying your hair."

So yea, this had to have been waiting to happen. The good thing is, I can turn my head all the way to the left again. I was afraid I was going to have to ride switch this whole season (I suck switch).

Alright, a bit of bad news for everyone...

There was a misunderstanding with the Cabin. The one we are getting is not one with a basement. That one is actually smaller than the one we stayed in last season. We had 9 people at one point in that cabin and two people had to sleep on the floor and it was pretty packed. However, two people had rooms that were single. We have a couple of couples so they get beds for sure. The other room can be shared by two dudes on a twin if they want haha.

Anyway, the bad part is now we need two cabins for sure. It sort of works out better though because we have other co-workers are coming now and they were going to get a small cabin themselves. Now we're thinking though, we should talk to Jeff (cabin owner) and ask about getting another semi-big cabin.

Bottom line, how do you guys feel about going back to the original price of $50? I know I said it's $42 already, but keep in mind a second cabin means a more comfortable situation. Let me know if anyone objects. I really don't think it should be a big deal. It's still a killer price for a weekend especially for those coming up on Friday. It's a great deal for one night. So basically I'm saying, don't whine and just pay up bitches! Haha, kidding. You are more than welcome to withdraw and find your own accommodations if need be. I'll refund your down payment and you are still welcome to ride with us and still be a part of the surprise.

Let me know if you have any objections to a final fee of $50.
