Its a cool and calm 16 degrees here in downtown Frederic this morning. Its about 11 and have only seen a few cars rolling thru town and of course no sleds. I did ride one sled yesterday around the building but that doesn’t count. Last night on the news it looks like there is some hope for a white Christmas so that is a little encouraging. Also super rider Dave Klemish sent me this update from the DNR about improvements on the trails west of here so here it is
Improvements completed on ORV route, snowmobile trail in
northeastern Kalkaska County The Department of Natural Resources today announced that improvements have been completed along the Kalkaska Route, which includes Snowmobile Trail #79 in northeastern Kalkaska County.
Improvements on this dual-use recreational trail include constructing 0.5 miles of new trail and installing a new bridge over Goose Creek. The project was necessary to replace a formerly narrow and structurally deficient bridge and to move the trail into the woods away from vehicular traffic on Kalkaska County Road 612.
“The new trail and bridge provide a much safer, more enjoyable motorized recreational experience for our users,” said Todd Neiss, DNR parks and recreation trail specialist.The project was funded using grants from the Recreational Trails, Off-Road Vehicle and Snowmobile programs.

Thanks to Dave for that, below I am putting a few pics of some of the new shirts we just got in. Thanks for checking in. Pete
