More Fat-Bike Fun

 The Fat-bike has been proving fun.  Conditions seem great, although the miles don't add very fast.  About 5.5 hours to go 33 miles through trails and gravel back roads, but they were wondrous miles.  Many pictures with a few words.

 I shared this trail with a Grey Wolf (Timber Wolf). I found what he was after a little further down the trail.  A whitetail deer carcass.

 One of the trails led to this pot hole (little lake not named). I ventured out and rode the perimeter of it.  Surprising it was almost 2 miles around this one.

 A nice stand of pine on the Cheever Road.

 This is one of the local trout streams.

Lunch is cooking on the bank of the stream. 

 Some trails have overhanging branches and trees.  Tends to make it interesting at times.

 Oooops...picture out of order.  Oh well.

 This days lunch varied from the usual peanut butter and honey on wheat.  Wild rice soup here.

 Evidence that some deer did live through the rifle season.

 A few years ago, we had my 21st birthday in the loft of that barn with some jammin tunes and a keg of beer.  The term a few years ago could be open for interpretation    hehehe   

 One of the trails I was on came into a logging job. 


Thought I would try a video today.


Lets get outdoors and have some fun!!

PS...Thanks for reading!

  4. Looks like a beautiful ride. And I always love the "pull out the camp stove" lunch stops on rides.

  5. Great ride and photos! I like the lunch set up as well. Wild rice, no less. It's really cool that you have Timber Wolves. Seems like such a symbol of wild places.

    1. I haven't been able to access or comment on your blog...SO, if you see this. Just dropping in to say HI. Hope everything is going well with you and your family. We have very little snow here in northern WI this year. It looks like we are going into the deep freeze for about a week. I have enough wood in for the week, so I will sit near the stove with a book and keep the fire going. hehe

  8. I'm heading up to the Eagle River area over the holidays. Do you know if there are any fat tire trails (or xc trails okay to ride on) in the area?

    1. I am not close to the Eagle River area, but I am near the Hayward area and the options are endless near Hayward. There is a link on the right on side of the blog that links to Andi's Adventures. She is near Rhinelander and may be able to help you with the riding in that area. Thanks for reading!
