Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/11

Greetings Sledders,

We finally got some much needed replenishing snow on Sunday and it looks like a little more is expected Wed night into Thursday. How much depends on which forecast you are looking at and I keep hearing 2-3" so we will go with that and talk about something else.

I just got back from what we call the tandem grooming run which means we put both tractors on the trail and do a loop from here to Frederic, then on to the Blue Bear, turn around and continue South on trail #79 then we head East and Back to Fay’s.

The only issue I have with all of what I groomed today is the snirty condition of trail #7 between Grayling and Frederic and you all know that prompts me to call that fair. Until we get the dirt snow separator working again that trail will show some snirt. Everything else was good to very good.

The forecast looks good for the week and on into the long weekend. Expect heavy traffic and we will do our best to keep up grooming wise. All of our trails will be groomed once each day and to accomplish this we need to groom some segments during the daytime. Around the next corner or on the backside of a blind hill may be a groomer. Something to think about.

Have a SAFE weekend.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Kids ( How’s that Bob?)

Shroomers,

It's time to end this misery. The black season in our area has been disappointing to say the least.

Neal (the tamale man) and Doug (the great mushroom killer) did team up over the week end. They picked 72 grays and yellows.

Doug will be in for the next couple weeks looking for yellows. He picked 114 yesterday. We'll see if he gets anywhere near his

2,500 (70 lbs?) from last year.

Well, everyone have a good summer and winter. Take care and we will see you next year.

Eager Shroomers,

Hope everyone is well and avoiding the the virus.

A quick update on the local fungus. Keith and I took a drive Sunday to check out a few of our usual spots. Nothing!! Not even one of Keith's babies.

Just to keep with the strangeness of this year, no leaves, no catkins but the tiger lilies and Dutchman's breeches are blooming and trillium are up and setting buds. Go figure!!

The weather man is calling for a cool week (40-50) and freezing at night with not much rain. Not sure what this will do for the harvest.

We have decided we will be open for contactless reservations only. We will take reservations over the phone with credit card info (cash can be left in the room) and keep the office closed.

We will not take walk-in reservations. Call us if you have any questions.

As always we'll keep you informed.

Stay well.

Sandy & Keith

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/06

Greetings Sledders,

Well the Sun didn’t behave and we lost a fair amount over the last couple of days. I groomed the trail South of M-72 yesterday and it’s getting pretty thin and icy. North of 72 the snow gradually gets heavier but it is also crusty from the daytime sunshine and nightly re-freezing.

I would imagine that the poor spots have only gotten larger, at least the ones in direct sunshine, and the dirty snow probably took a hit as well because it’s like a magnet when it comes to the Sun’s rays.

With all of that said the Davis guys were in and rode 210 miles yesterday and were happy with their rides. So things aren’t all bad. Although we do need snow and it looks at least promising but not until Sunday at the earliest.

We are continuing to groom on a regular schedule.

The trails can only take so much heat and with two weekends of cloudy skies with warm temps, rain, and mist and two days of Sun, the weather is taking it’s toll. So I’m dropping the overall rating back to fair with some poor spots mixed in. Another wacky winter indeed.

Next report Monday

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