I pulled out the exhaust plug, greased everything up, put in the spark plugs, and filled her with gas last night. She fired up and ran well considering that it was in the upper 30s for temperature. I'm waiting for that first real snow so that I can rip up and down the street for a few test runs.
Made it up to Grand Marais last weekend - put on 195 miles.
Sat went from Devils Track lake to the Portage casino - 140 miles round trip. Some sections were good, some were bad. There is a lot of logging this year so roads that usually are not plowed are being plowed this year - have to run the gravel road or ditches - pretty rough.
Sunday had a couple of spare hours before I had to leave so we ran from Devils Track south on the state trail to Lutsen - much better trails that direction but still some thin spots.
There is a really good base present for this time of year, but need more snow to maintain it. Lakes are not safe yet either - as of early last week Gunflint Lake still has open water.
