Weather: Warmer this weekend than cooler for a few days next week and possible snow. Next weekend looks bad, hopefully that will change.
Trail Conditions: Lots of wet and impassable areas, ask before you go out. Right now 8 east to Kenton, then 3 or 107 south is the best riding I have heard of.
The stupid sun is up this morning. Our worst enemy. Must be the Sun of a Bitch. Conditions are still the same, up to White Pine is good but on to Silver City is not. 11n I’m told sucks big time. If your traveling between Bergland and Ironwood take the southern route and not trail 8. There are more and more tracks on the Lake but I wouldn’t do it. I heard there are shacks out in the Bay but you need to know these are locals and they know where the creeks and streams come in. Don’t think the Bay is safe because you see tracks.
Don’t try 1 south along the west shore of Gogebic, too wet. 13 south has not been groomed yet but it is passable. 13 north still has the gates locked I am told.
One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota, a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around.
When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed to the fire chief and said, “All our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant. They must be saved. I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact.”
But the roaring flames held the firefighters off.
Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company’s secret files.
From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian rural township volunteer fire company composed mainly of Norwegians over the age of 65. To everyone’s amazement, that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant.
Without even slowing down it drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside, the other firemen watched as the Norwegian old timers jumped off right in the middle of the fire fought it back on all sides. It was a performance and effort never seen before.
Within a short time, the Norske old timers had extinguished the fire and had saved the secret formulas. The grateful chemical company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters.
The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film, asking their chief, “What are you going to do with all that money?”
