Damn! Lucky pup!
Looks like you picked the right weekend to head up and get stuck.
Just looked at the forecast n it seems you're due for another 2-4 overnight!

The snow down here was pretty F'd up by the warm n rain then the deep freeze. Not to mention, every F'ing time I plan a day sesh at PK or Holly? They cancel it!! planned to hit it tomorrow before having to drive my mother out to my brothers for Xmas dinner in Howell. But they only have pm sesh tomorrow so I proly wont get to make it.

Enjoy your Christmas POW dude!

Merry Christmas to the rest of you MI reprobates as well!

I'm back in Lansing now, only morning laps before we drove back. No power at home, house is 42 degrees. Time to shut off the water supply.

I guess I'm gonna go ahead and piss off the family for Christmas. I Don't imagine I'll be seeing any of you married guys out tomorrow, but I plan on hitting PK for their pm session. Might even stop in and check out Holly while I'm at it. Hope the snows not too F'd after the warm n freeze.

Default PSA Liftopia,.. Caberfae

Thought I'd post this as there were only a few left, but liftopia had day lift tickets on sale for $7!!

I snagged one for my vacation in Jan. I'll hit Cab for the day on Wed. the 8th, then head up to Boyne after. Since by then Boyne only does night riding Thurs-Sat, I'll try and get a deal for a night ticket at Nubs for Wed. night. (Liftopia was sold out of those today.)

Hope you all had a good Christmas!

Nice steal for Caberfae.

I who is riding what these next few days? We're kinda wide open and almost left for highlands again this morning but figured we could use a day at home with heat.

I wish I could head north again this weekend, but I will likely stay local. I may try to get a morning session in tomorrow @ PK. Then maybe Holly sat. or sun.

If you stay local, lmk if you are heading out to one of these. I ditched the family @ dinner last night and hit PK for a couple hours. I absolutely Loved how deserted the runs were.

ps. DaveZ, if you are going to be out this way this weekend, Hollah! I'd love to try out that Marhar Throwback if you are in the area!

Crazy several days for us. Power out Saturday night, waited around for it to come back on, stayed at a hotel Sunday, with some friends Monday night, still no power Tuesday so drained the pipes and hot water heater in the dark, put RV antifreeze in the toilets and sinks, shut off the breaker to the well and packed all the fucking Christmas presents (from Santa too), loaded up the kids, the dogs and headed up north. Had Christmas morning at my mom's.

Woke up today at 7 am to dig out 3 feet of snow, dug a 4 foot deep hole in the ground itself that was big enough for my mom's 14 year old dog (that I saved as a puppy from an abandoned shopping cart when I was 18 in the middle of winter) who is on his death bed and chickened out of putting him out of his misery at the last second. Balled like a baby for about 5 minutes, put him in the garage on a bed of straw, covered him with an old sleeping bag and gave him a couple pain pills before heading up to Crystal for a few hours of powder to get my mind off it. Got home and shoveled 3 feet of snow off my mom's roof and am fucking dead tired. Going back to Crystal tomorrow with the whole family, boys are doing ski school and our daughter is riding with us.

Oh well at least my neighbor told me our power is back on at home, so hopefully we won't come home to a cold house. One Christmas I will never forget for sure.

Shit, sorry Chomps I have not checked this thread in a few days I was actually out at Brighton on Monday and again today. Heading up to Treetops in Gaylord, tomorrow.

Gonna try and get out local probably on New Year's day, not sure where yet.

Hey Dave, no sweat! Just thought I'd mention it if you were planning to hit PK or Holly this weekend. Just got back from an am sesh at PK. Man!! I could get spoiled by that! Didn't start getting busy until about noon when I left! Love having those runs to myself. ...and this is a holiday. Kids are out of school. It'll be even better when all the ankle biters & tween's are back in class!
