Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/20

Greetings Sledders,

What a weekend. Two tractors vs hundreds of sleds. I’d bet on the sleds winning out every time and that certainly was the case last weekend. It took us until Monday but we got all the trails back into very good condition and it looks like they will stay that way thru Friday. After that another ride on the weather roller coaster could be headed our way. At this point it’s anybody’s guess as to how it will shake out.

We took the day off from grooming today to slather a little grease here and there on the tractors and we will focus on some much needed re-arrangement of snow on the corridor at the golf course that is part of the trail thru town tomorrow and we will be back at grooming on Friday. We will be back at our usual weekend schedule unless the weather says otherwise.

LOVELLS TRAIL CLOSURE: The military will be closing the gates on the Lovells trail the first two weekends of March. This closure is due to training activity on what is known as the Range 30 MPRC and the gates block off a safety zone that is meant to keep everyone out of harms way. I will post this alert several times between now and the scheduled weekends.

Next report when we have a better idea what to expect for weather for the weekend.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Girls

The 2020 Yamahas are hitting the trails early I see...

lol of course theyre towing at least one M113

And they say its sledders that rip them up lol

That one being towed must be Chevy 😂

Don’t see any trail stickers in those !

FEMA Camps are taking reservations.....

Anyone see a trail permit? Lol

No doubt there is always something broken. Maintenance leads the way!

Dang miss those days but Bradley's not 113

I hope they got trail permits lol

We love having The Guard here! Thank you all for your service!🇺🇸

Hope they have ORV stickers the DNR is really cracking down in that area!

Did that "all over" Germany back in the early 70's. Early 70's? Geesh...

Michigan national guard hooyah!

They use that to get from MATES /north camp to south camp/ Camp Grayling!

Looks like the 7th tank was towing an artic cat.

Love riding in the tank trails on my sled

CAN ON THAT WAS WAY TO LOUD

It's a tank trail. The sleds just get to use it.

Very cool but harsh on the rds

We was camping 2 years ago off 7 mile rd and they showed up in our camp. They said they was just field training. About crapped our pants 👖 💩

Spent many spend summer up there

This is why I love grayling so much

Brings back memories. I love seeing the tanks moving

Been there done that. I was 17 in the 1st /246th armor. From Dewagaic, Mi. Best thing my parents did was to sign so I could go into the National Guard at 15. Thank you mom and dad!!!!!

Shroomers,

Time to close this out for another year.

Had some Ohio shroomers in over the weekend, they picked 400 blacks on Thur and Fri. I'm not sure how they did on Sat. I didn't see them before they left early Sun.
I can only assume they had another good day. Had another guy that went up to Vanderbilt and didn't find anything. Go figure.

My super shroomer from Indiana (doug) has picked 600 over the last five days mostly grays and yellows. He hunted with Neal (the Tamale man with Tamales in hand) on Sun
They picked 90 blacks, grays and yellows. They spent most of their time showing each other sites to hunt for different types of shrooms. Doug will be here for the next week or
so picking yellows. We've already started giving shrooms away. What a great guy!! Gotta love him.

It's been an interesting year. We got a late start then every color is here at the same time.

Well hope you all have a great summer and winter. See everyone next year.

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/12

Greetings Sledders,

If we get what is forecast, which by the looks of things we will, or at least come close, the trails should end up in good to very good condition.

Groomers are running full bore and will continue throughout the weekend.

This should prove to be the best riding of the year, plenty of snow to keep you off the ice base and the timing is great. Any snowfall on an early week day gives us plenty of time to compress and compact before the weekend traffic hits.

Gotta Go!!

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Girls
