Paradise Area Trail Report – Paradise Area Night Riders – 03/19

March 19, 2017

31 degrees this morning when I crawled outa bed. It is now 40 at noon and kinda foggy and misty.

All trails were run yesterday, just like I said. They all turned out about the same too…..kinda mushy and slushy. Kinda sad, but I think this is it. The trails are fading really fast with holes opening up and bare spots with dirt and grime. Good by to ANOTHER rotten winter season, this makes what….2 or 3 in a row now?? If some miracle happens I`ll get back on here but I think I`ll say SEE YA`S NEXT FALL. We will be posting on our Face Book page for upcoming brushing and signing weekends if anybody wants to come UP and help so check back every now and again.

God Bless Groomer Chris

Now y`all can see why we had so much trouble with the south trail last winter. High water levels suck!!! This is only the tip of the ice berg. Groomer Chris

So you are saying the season is over.

You guys did an awesome job this winter, considering the many obsatacles. Hopefully next winter will provide more snow, and fewer groomer breakdowns!

Chris, Thanks so much for posting here very regularly! You have really gone above and beyond keeping us informed (really helps when one lives over 1,000 miles away for booking planes and coordinating travel with others regularly).

Thank you for all you guys do up their. It was a tough season.

32 degrees this morning and cloudy. Looks like we picked up 3-4 inches of wet heavy snow last night too. So here`s what went on yesterday UP here in da north woods.....

The Falls trail and the Stump trail were run. Both turned out OK, in fact, I`ll call them good for this time of year. We are running ALL trails today, this includes the south trail #8 from the river mouth south. We can`t get a groomer in the swamp just south of town though. The trails are fading fast too. You will hit bare spots and the dirt roads that are plowed are down to mud again. Me thinks this will be the last weekend looking at the weather....but who knows.....we`ll probably get another 2 foot by the end of the month with the way this season has gone. All I got fer ya today. Groomer Chris

It was 12 degrees this morning when I got up at 0730. Its now noon and 32 outside and the sun is shining. Sorry about the late report this morning and no report yesterday. Yesterday the stuff hit the fan as soon as I got outa bed and I didn`t get back home till 10 at night. Haven`t been out to the barn in a few days so don`t know whats going on with the schedule but here is what I do know.....

We picked up a new groomer guy, his name is Jack and he owns the Lodge at Silver Creek....we sure do need him....hope he plans on helping for next year!!!! Anyway, with the colder nights we had at the start of this week he decided to take a run south of town. Had to skip the swamp section just south of town but he ran from the river mouth down the power line and the Federal Forest section. He said it turned out good too!!! Thanks Groomer Jack!!! The Falls trail and the Point trails are fair to good. You will run into a few bare spots and a couple choppy spots but they are very ridable. The Stump trail is getting run right now. We will be grooming thru the weekend. Bout all I got fer right now. The fan is still turning and the stuff is still flying off. Groomer Chris

Very cool jack !

Thx Chris and Jack, we are loading up now and will be up tonight for a weekend of fun, Greatly appreciate your efforts and reports

Matt Dudek

Knowing Jack, that trail is going to be perfect! Thanks for getting involved buddy. Would it make sense to seek MDOT approval now for a permanent trail down the roadside and just be done with the swamp forever? Every year it's a problem and town is missing out on a lot of sledders that won't come up from the south due to rumors about the swamp. Of course, I too would love having the south groomed regularly

Thanks Jack and Chris for your awesome trails and commitment!

Thanks groomer chris for the update

Thank you. That section going towards the soo before silver Creek bar was rough. Thank you for grooming it... Does this mean the snowbank going from paradise south is groomed in town

Thank you

Either - A) Your fan turns at slow speeds or , B) It has a LOT of "stuff" on it!!!! LOL

Thanks Groomer Jack!

THAT'S GREAT.....Silver creek bar is cool.

This season I have been silent while watching a insignificant and unintelligent person "Johnny Reinhart" bash your trails and the job being performed by PANR, repeatedly. I've been riding here since I was a small child. I've used the trails from Seny, Grand Marais, Newberry, Iron River, and Houghton / Hancock. I've also used the trails closer to home (i.e. Cadillac, Grayling, Gaylord, & Indian River). (yeah, I'm a troll) No one has perfect trails all of the time. However, PANR's trails are some of the best I've encountered which is why I tend to gravitate to the Paradise Trail System. This year PANR out did themselves by working through horrible problems that were out of their span of control. Outstanding job PANR. Note, Johnny offered no solutions, nor did he offer any help of any kind. Instead he became just another keyboard terrorist. Obviously, this person is a recent addition to your area with little or no prior riding history or experience to other areas. His comments suggest he has a personal bone to pick. I tend to think of his opinions much like an invasive species (completely worthless). There is nothing we can to to eradicate them. Again, they are worthless and harmful to those that do not learn to handle them. Downstate, I encounter many people like Johnny. They continually whine and focus on themselves (shocker). People like this whiner have no concept of servitude. PANR does a excellent job and I want to say thanks.

TMB- you probably should just stay silent and stay in the LP driving your Prius, watching birds and hugging trees. Of course the PANR trails would seem amazing to you coming from Gaylord. The truth is PANR has done an OK job on the trails this year. I would not say that there job was outstanding by a long shot. Well you are entitled to your pompus "i' m better than everybody else" opinion Good solutions you offer though, don't agreed with someone's point of view... eradicate, get rid of, destroy....oh well back to your perfect little world.

Good one Johnny. But I will not remain silent because I actually earned the right for my opinion as have many of my brothers. Earned.. Not just by being born. Doesn't feel so good having someone disagree & bash you for a change does it? Something you should also remember, respect is earned as well not just given freely. You've not earned it but maybe someday you will. Your right about one thing though, I know I'm better than some.... a lot in fact... But I also know there are many more greater and better than me. I'm ok with that as well. Review your own previous posts and take your own advice. Try this, next time they ask for volunteers to help out up here. Drive back up here for a weekend and help out instead of being.... well..... you. Also, feel free to respond. Your not worth my time on getting another response from me until you actually help out instead of whining and bitching.

To PANR, I apologize for the above. I will now take my own advise and stop. You guys and your families sacrifice and have enough to deal with other than this trash talking BS on your site. Again, I apologize and will stop. Be safe brothers.

Quit whining about the trails...or volunteer your own time. Only complaint I got is the signage for corners....not a club issue.

TMB.....bash away..... we "keyboard terrorists" don't really care about what you say or think.
