Weather: Colder with a bit of snow in the forecast
Trail Conditions: Good to bad but cold is coming
Forecast and conditions are still the same. We are waiting for the cold Mother Nature.
1 north to White Pine was good, trail 8 east towards Ewen was ok also. If you are coming from Ironwood take the lower route to trail 2. 8 totally sucks I am told. Trail 3 north out of Bruce crossing was good. Lots of sleds around and the trails held up a lot better than I thought they would considering the temps. Conditions should start improving tomorrow through out next week. Most people up here are just happy to be riding, I think most knew what to expect.
I keep getting asked if the Lake is safe. Not too many people up here will tell you that it is, there are always dangers that can pop up out there. Ice reports have been 6 to 8 to 12 inches thick. Sleds have been running all over, but use caution if you wonder out there. Streams and creeks run into the Lake, and there is a lot of water in the hills.
A man, while playing on the front nine of a complicated golf course, became confused as to where he was on the course.
Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him. He walked up to her, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing.
She replied, “I’m on the 7th hole, and you are a hole behind me, so you must be on the 6th hole.”
He thanked her and went back to his golf.
On the back nine the same thing happened; and he approached her again with the same request.
She said, “I’m on the 14th hole, you are a hole behind me, so you must be on the 13th hole.”
Once again he thanked her and returned to his play.
He finished his round and went to the clubhouse where he saw the same lady sitting at the end of the bar.
He asked the bartender if he knew the lady. The bartender said that she was a sales lady and played the course often.
He approached her and! said, “Let me buy you a drink in appreciation for your help. I understand that you are in the sales profession. I’m in sales, also. What do you sell?”
She replied, “If I tell you, you’ll laugh.”
“No, I won’t.”
“Well, if you must know,” she answered, “I work for Tampax.”
With that, he laughed so hard he almost lost his breath.
She said, “See I knew you would laugh.”
“That’s not what I’m laughing at,” he replied. “I’m a salesman for Preparation H, so I’m still a hole behind you!
