Well Lowell, guess this means you'll not be at my plow day on the 20th!  Best wishes for a great GT trail ride!

ok I will! I  just don't know what to bring yet......I tried to fire up the wheel horse today and it did not want to start, it is not wanting to let gas in...hope it is just a stuck float.  I know it is not spark because I checked that first and it zapped the crap out of me.....

Once upon a time I tried to organize a two day Garden Tractor ride across Northern Lower Michigan from Advance to Alpena a distance of about 110 miles.  Tried to get it sponsored by the local fire departments along the way since in Michigan we could have used their liability insurance policies.

Went by the farm this afternoon, even after a 5" rain, the ditch crossing is still OK!  

 

We're still a GO for the 20th.  ~~  Lowell
