Improving conditions.

I have been sharing snowmobile clubs posts on facebook from clubs around the Western UP. I know a lot of people do not use facebook and I would not either if I could have avoided it. But it is a easy way to post pictures and information.

For those of you that do not use facebook in general what other clubs around the UP are saying is conditions are getting better fast but there are still problem areas out there. Water, rocks and lack of snow in places but good riding can be found in a lot of areas. The key is to use caution during early season riding (all the time for that matter). Trail conditions change and early season they change even faster. Running water can cause havoc out there.

But with that said forecast for the next 10 days still has high temps below freezing but not the sub zero over night temps we like to see. Not a lot of snow in the forecasts but right now that is a good thing because we want the wet ares and the Lake to continue to freeze.

People are starting to ride on Lake Gogebic but I would use extreme caution before venturing out there. Talk to people at local business and ask about ice conditions on the water. We all want you to have fun and be safe, and return to our area year after year.

I’m working at Dutches in Marenisco tonight and at Gogebic Lodge tomorrow, so if you are out and about stop in and see me. It’s been a long off season and I miss my Snowmobile Friends.


Rental Calendars Fixed.

All my rental calendars are up to date. Lots of openings left. Email me your dates before it is too late, it looks like we may be starting out on a good note for this season.

Web site Calendar

After playing with the web site for hours I think I found the problem was with Google Chrome on my computer. WTF I hate computers. I will get my rental Calendars online later today.

Early year conditions out on the trails I imagine, I haven’t talked to anyone but with all the snow we received the last few days I believe there is some good riding to be had out there. And some shitty riding also LOL.

Website troubles.

I have web site problems again. I didn’t do it this time, HONEST LOL. I’m not sure what happened, it all started when Shane, AKA Ackmed tried booking a date in the rental. My rental calendars are off line right now but I have a back up hard copy. I don’t have time to try to figure it out right now because I have to go deal with all the fricken snow outside. I’ll work on the website later but for now it looks like we got at least a foot of new snow. So even though I am having technological problems, our Mother Nature Problems seem to be resolved. I’ll be back on later, for now just check out the snow on the web cams.

Jack, a handsome man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV as the 10:00 news came on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump.

The blonde looked at Jack and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”

Jack says, “You know what, I bet he will.” The blonde replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.” Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, “You’re on!”

Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, “Fair’s fair… Here’s your money.”

Jack replied, “I can’t take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o’clock news and knew he would jump.”

The blonde replies, “I did too; but I didn’t think he’d do it again.”

Jack took the money.


We’re Back.

Back Broke from the Mountains. (Almost sounds like a movie). We didn’t have much like in West Wendover Nv. but we had a lot of fun. Good food but no Busch Light. But they did have Jose.

Enough about our little getaway. Here is the real story.

We seen snowmobile tracks all over heading home from Mosinee Wi. but no snowmobiles. From the pics I seen on the internt this morning we still have a lot of wet areas on the trails and areas that need snow. The good news is temps are remaining below freezing and we do have snow coming in the forecast. Anywhere from 1-3 or 5-8 inches to be exact. We just have to wait and see what Mother Nature sends our way. All in all it is looking good for the star of the season. Stay tuned , it is snowing as I write this.



Time to fly the friendly skies.

Up, Up and away, Mom, Becker, Me and about 30 others from the Hoop N Hollar are heading to Wendover Nv. in the morning to do some gambling for 4 days. A little pre-season fun before all of you get up here. Anyone wanting me to place a bet for them just forward your Credit Card info to me and I’ll be more than happy to run up your balance for you. LOL.

So this will be my last post for a while, we will be back in town late on Tuesday. Riding this weekend will not be too good, the Groomers have been out packing down trails trying to get the wet areas to freeze up. So far the deeper snows have held off so hopefully we will be freezing up the trails and then hoping for some significant snows. Hand tight for another week and I’ll post next Wednesday the 5th and let you know what it looks like for the following weekend.

I’ve been getting reservations so check out my Calendars and email me your vacation plans, I will take the emails in the order you sent them on Wednesday.

See ya soon, Tom and Becker

Getting a dusting.

Light snow is coming down. We have teens for highs next week. Keep the heavy snow south of us for now until everything up here freezes up.

A big city doctor visits an Indian tribe full of men, he asks “How do you guys relieve your sexual tension?” “Simple, just come down to the river tomorrow and we’ll show you.” The next day the doctor shows up and sees a group of men near a donkey. One man says “Since you’re our guest you get to go first.” The doctor not wanting to go against custom starts to kiss, then proceeds to have sex with the donkey. Then a man in the group asks “Are you almost done Doc?” “We need the donkey to cross the river in order to get to the tribe of women.”

Happy Monday.

Off work for 2 weeks. We are going to Wendover Nv. next weekend to do a little bit of gambling. We have about 30 people going from the Hoop n Hollar. Should be a good time. Mom is even going with us. Pretty cool deal, go to to see rates and where they fly out of.

We didn’t get the snow that you guys did south of us. I’ve seen posts of people asking if they can ride this weekend and bad advice is being given. No it won’t be a good ride. We need more cold and then snow, hold out for a bit, good times are coming.

There were three nuns, they all told the priest that they were going to do one sin each. So the priest says ok, do your sins, come back, and I’ll bless you. So, they went to do their sins and came back to get blessed. The priest asked the first one who was laughing what her sin was. She said, “I had sex with a guy.” The priest said ok, blessed her and said go drink some holy water. So she did! The next one was laughing harder, and the priest asked her what her sin was. She said, “I got in a fight with another nun.” So he says ok, blessed her and told her to go drink some holy water. So she did. The priest asked the last one who was laughing even harder what she did. And as she was laughing she said, “I pissed in the holy water!”

Cool Down Period.

Back below freezing in the UP. The colder the better, bring it on Mother Nature. Headed to Da Lodge to work today. Vikings and Packers tonight.

A girl was a prostitute, but she did not want her grandma to know. One day the police raided a whole group of prostitutes at a sex party in a hotel and she was among them. The police took them outside and had all the prostitutes line up along the driveway. Suddenly the girl’s grandma came by and saw her. “Why are you standing in line, dear?” she asked. Not willing to let her grandma know the truth, the girl told her that the policemen were passing out free oranges. “Why, that is awfully nice of them! I think I’ll get some for myself,” said the grandma. A policeman went down the line, asking for information from all of the prostitutes. When he got to Grandma, he exclaimed, “Wow, still going at it at your age? How do you do it?” Grandma replied, “Oh, it’s easy, dear. I just take out my dentures and suck them dry!”

November Melt Down.

Better off having a little melt down in November than after the season starts. It may even be a good thing. We need the woods to freeze up before we get a lot of snow. Temps are supposed to fall below freezing this afternoon and stay at or below freezing for the next 10 days. Not a lot of snow in the forecast but that is a good thing for us around Lake Gogebic because of all the wet areas on the trails around here.

A housewife takes a lover during the day, while her husband is at work. Not aware that 9 year old son was hiding in the closet. Her husband came home unexpectedly, so she hid her lover in the closet. The boy now has company.

Boy: “Dark in here.” Man: “Yes it is.” Boy: “I have a baseball.” Man: “That’s nice.” Boy: “Want to buy it?” Man: “No, thanks.” Boy: “My dad’s outside.” Man: “OK, how much?” Boy: “$250.”

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the mom’s lover are in the closet together.

Boy: “Dark in here.” Man: “Yes, it is.” Boy: “I have a baseball glove.” Man: “That’s nice.” Boy: “Want to buy it?” Man: “No, thanks.” Boy: “I’ll tell.” Man: “How much?” Boy: “$750.” Man: “Fine.”

A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove. Let’s go outside and toss the baseball!” The boy says, “I can’t. I sold them.” The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?” The son says, “$1,000.” The father says, “That’s terrible to over-charge your friends like that. That is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.” They go to church and the father alerts the priest and makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and closes the door.

The boy says, “Dark in here.” The priest says, “Don’t start that shit again.”
