Weather: 50’s and rain today, snow tomorrow.

Trail Conditions: Grades should be ok.

What a crappy morning, but like my Dad use to say “at least I woke up on the right side of the roses.” We have about 5 days of crappy weather ahead of us, but it may be nice for next weekend. Looks like I need to look for a few more inside jobs to do. Our grass is turning green finally and all the ice is off Lake Gogebic, it will be campfire and fireside chat time soon. 1-3 inches of snow possibly headed our way on Tuesday, gotta love April in the UP.


During my physical examination, my doctor asked me about my physical activity level. 


I described a typical day this way:


“Well, yesterday afternoon, I took a five hour walk,

About 7 miles, through some pretty rough terrain.


I waded along the edge of a lake.


I pushed my way through brambles.


I got sand in my shoes and my eyes


I avoided standing on a snake.


I climbed several rocky hills.


I took a few ‘leaks’ behind some big trees.


The mental stress of it all left me shattered.


At the end of it all I drank eight beers”.


Inspired by the story, the doctor said, You must be one hell of an outdoorsman!”




“No,” I replied, “just a shitty golfer”.
