Charlie 3/2/15

Rode from EGF to Crookston to 20 east of Gentilly on Friday, our trails very good, going north around Crookston the trails were bad most of the way, Crookston to Gentilly the trails were good, and from Gentilly east they were groomed but not so good. Saturday we rode from Thief River Falls to Goodridge to Four Town and back. Trails not to bad except in the marsh (rough); otherwise, good most of the way. Sunday from TRF to Newfolden and back, trails good but marsh rough.

Charlie, 3/2/15

International Falls, MN seems to be the only place where there are groomed trails. The Ash Trail lodge, Orr, MN worked.

Announcements

I have revised the announcement function. In the 50 minutes I was working on the page, someone posted two Viagra advertisements. I removed the announcement function from the public accessible page, moved it to the members only page, and upgraded the page security. We will see if this works.

Charlie 2/25/15

International Falls, MN seems to be a good place where there is good snow and there are groomed trails. The Ash Trail lodge, Orr, MN worked for our recent club trip.

Charlie 2/24/15

Thief River Falls to Goodridge to Grygla MN, had okay trails this pasted weekend. The marsh could use more snow, but it is ridable.

EGF to Crookston was groomed for the February 14th weekend and February 21st. The NOAA snow depth report shows 2 to 4" from Fisher to Crookston while EGF to Fisher varies between 2 to 4" and 4 to 8". This may give you a good idea what depths are okay for you.
