4+ inches of new snow, with a possible storm coming in Friday night. Trails are very good and the Lake is flat. What the hell are you waiting for? Come up and see us.



Not a lot has changed up here, Lake is good, trails are good and Beer is cold. Lighter traffic has left us with great conditions most of this year. Well except for some of the problem wet areas. This weekend may get busy, at least I hope so.  Snow and cold is on the way in for the weekend.

Mark and Becky are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

Mark says to Becky, “Becky, I was wondering…have you ever cheated on me?”

Becky replies, “Oh Mark, why would you ask such a question now? You don’t want to ask that question…”

“Yes, Becky, I really want to know. Please…”

“Well, all right. Yes, three times…” she admitted.

“Three? Well, when were they?” he asked.

“Well, Mark, remember when you were 35 years old and you really wanted to start your own business and no bank would give you a loan? Remember, then one day the bank president himself came over to the house and signed the loan papers, no questions asked?”

“Oh, Becky, you did that for me! I respect you even more than ever, to do such a thing for me. So, when was number two?” he asked.

“Well, Mark, remember when you had that last heart attack and you were needing that very tricky operation, and no surgeon would touch you? Then remember how Dr. DeBakey came all the way up here to do the surgery himself, and then you were in good shape again?” she said.

“I can’t believe it! Becky, you should do such a thing for me, to save my life. I couldn’t have a more wonderful wife. To do such a thing, you must really love me. I couldn’t be more moved. So, all right then, when was number three?” he asked, racking his brain.

“Well, Mark, remember a few years ago, when you really wanted to be president of the golf club and you were 17 votes short..?”

heavy traffic on the Lake but we were not too busy at Fishtales last night. I’ll be open for the start of the CHiefs game, stop on by, no reservations required.

Trails are good, we need people, I got the beer.

Anyone seen my Princess? I don’t think she likes me anymore.

I have not heard a bad thing about the trails. Low traffic is keeping them from getting tore up even when temps are warmer. I have openings in my rentals, come on up and see us.

His doctor asked him about his physical activity level and John described a typical day.

“Well, yesterday afternoon, I took a five-hour walk about seven miles through some pretty rough terrain. I waded along the edge of a lake. I pushed my way through some trees and vegetation. I got sand in my shoes, eyes and hair. 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 and 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,” John replied, “I’m just a crappy golfer.”

Conditions are good and traffic is very light. I’m not sure where everyone is at. Illinois people look like they are in line at the marijuana stores from the Facebook posts. But where is everyone else? Princess you better come see me this trip.

Hump day for you, first day of my work week for me.  Fishtales is open Wednesday thru Sunday,  Another couple of inches of snow last night to freshen things up. Light snows possible this weekend with a possible bigger snow fall next week. We hope and pray John Dee is right.

Riders reported good conditions on Sunday and since then we have had snow, cold and light traffic. So conditions should be pretty damn good out there. Get up here, you won’t be disappointed.


a couple of inches of much need snow fell this morning. The trails are hard and flat for the most part, and now we have some fresh snow for lubrication. Snow early next week, not a lot but here on out a few inches every few days will make our trails great again. It should be a good week, we have cooler temps and snow in the forecast along with lighter traffic on the trails.

Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.
The pharmacist at the counter asked the older boy, ‘Son, how old are you?’
‘Eight’, the boy replied.
The man continued, ‘Do you know what these are used for?’
The boy replied, ‘Not exactly, but they aren’t for me. They’re for him. He’s my brother. He’s four.”
“Oh, really?” the pharmacist replied with a grin.
“Yes.” the boy said. “We saw on TV that if you use these, you would be able to swim, play tennis and ride a bike. Right now, he can’t do none of those.”

Temps are going down a little and some snow over the weekend. Not a lot of snow in the forecast but we will take whatever Mother Nature sends our way, Lots of decent riding can be found but beware of wet areas.

Shout out to Al and Mike: Never leave you Wingman or in this case Wingwoman. And when you do when you get back to the bar say nice things to you wife. Tell them they smell good and you would rather ride with them than any of your guy friends.

Smootches Heather and Chris

What to say….not gonna be a “Get your asses up here” type of weekend but it should be decent. We don’t have a lot of snow in the forecast but temps are headed in the right direction. We should continue to freeze up but there are a lot of problem spots out there in wet areas. Even some areas that are not normally wet. A little snow this weekend and early next week, the Lake is smooth and packed down. You’ll find good riding.

I have a lot of openings in the rentals. Email me your dates.


It was his fifth round of golf in five days, and his wife had left a note on the fridge.

“It’s not working, I can’t take it anymore!” she wrote. “Gone to stay with my mother.”

He opened the fridge, the light came on and the beer was cold.

He said to himself, “What the hell is she talking about?”

Happy Fricken New Year.

I hope everyone woke up safe and happy this morning. Snow and cold is what we needed, more snow coming in the beginning of next week. Lots of sleds out late last night, not too many this morning. Trails should be in good shape except for wet areas, be careful out there, there is a lot of water holes through out the area.  Misty will be at Fishtales with me Friday and Saturday, come see us in action again. And don’t forget Kristie is at South Branch in Ewen Saturday night.
