2017 RDL Conditions

Recommended Posts

Not much snow lost, from what I can tell. Tonight got about a half inch of snow. So we have sled lubrication and cooling. And importantly, I am thinking it looks like winter again and hopefully the trees will have snow stuck to the branches. So my best guess all will be good. Hope to get out riding tomorrow and will report back. Snow seems to be just winding down.

Did a 170 mile loop today, went west and came back a more southerly loop. Conditions are very good. One to four inches of new snow everywhere, no icy patches.

Several trees/branches down across the trail from high winds on Wednesday. Probably only thing from perfect were a few trails were quite hard under the snow so in some areas a little more muscle to steer.  All trails extremely smooth. Met three sleds all day although saw quite a few sleds parked at club houses.

Had a chance to finally head east today for the first time. First ten or so miles through all the fields the snow depth is very low but still good going. After about ten miles there is tons of snow everywhere. Trails were great, higher elevations down around Squatec had very serious snow depths.

Hardly any sled traffic over the past three days, almost eerie it is so quiet. But today when I passed by club houses they were full.

Met Mjordan this week. Said hi to Timbo. And a great evening of food and drink with Dave and Eddie with the beautiful Vallerie serving us dinner.

My phone does have a camera, I think. Wouldn't know how to send it after I took a picture.

Midwinter conditions, 800 miles so far and not one bump. "Picture" that in your mind! 

200 miles today, in before 2:30. Had lunch and coffee stop. 

Terry, how is life working in the big city today? Send a pic!!!

Take care,     mike

Life in the big city today was spent figuring out where the red wire went mike... Just like snowmobiling, but completely different!

This is an easy one, obviously follow the yellow cross-over cable, it's plugged into two old non-mdix devices, replace the switches with newer ones that have a few 10GB fiber ports, uplink the two switches via the fiber, tadaa!

Or just say screw it and go WiFi!

LOL

Home tonight after 1,600 miles this week around the RDL area.    Conditions couldn't be any better and traffic was very sparse. Outstanding smooth trails.

Hi Mike.  Great reading and glad you got the miles in.  The trails have been excellent this season.  I've been watching the groomer map and it is incredible how often the trails are getting manicured.  We are going up Thursday for a long weekend.  Hope to meet up with you later in February.

Jack & Sandi
