Big R.....much more fun without the bridge cheers

WV Yankee2.....in the town of Big Bay there is a general store that has gas....it is about 56 miles from where I take the Prowler off of the trailer. Took gas the first time, but never needed it. As for miles on the Prowler, it now has between 3,700 and 4,000.
Have it apart right now so I can't check it for a real reading. By the way...thanks for the flowers!

Shawnley1222 ......it IS a lot of fun, and you are right.....a lot of RED!

Rcmass..... LOTS of room for WFO....you'd love it!!!

Wheelin......what ya think....we try to plan a cruse in the UP for "SouthernSxSRiders"?! shark There aren't any of these up there!

Partrage (sp) see then all the time...the guys up there hunt right from their Rhino's and trucks....see the birds fly, watch them land, get out of their ride put on an orange vest, load the shot gun right on the dirt road and fire away!!!!!!!! Couple of guys that I was ridin with time before last had like 6 birds each and never walked more than 100 feet from their ride lol! And if you are into it......like all of the creeks have Trout in them.
Most everyone you see riding around has a fly pole at least!!!!!

Seeing the Moose was way kewl .....in the middle of the day, just walkin down the 2 track.

Foxfire, I would be up for a possible road trip. I know I am booked solid till August and could not slip away till then. I know it would still be pretty warm, but I would be game. Just have to help me sell a couple of others on here and we can make it happen.
