4th. Annual 4th. Sick Day 100 (flight plan)
« on: December 27, 2016, 03:58:51 PM »
I would like to try to cover the southern portion of Marinette County this year seeing they got good snow early in the season and there trails were open already in the Coleman area, that is until yesterday when the weather went nuts.  :banghead:   However things are froze up good and there is a base established so if we can only get snow we should be good to go! So here is the proposed flight plan?!  :angel:

Wednesday Jan. 18th. Unload sleds and start out at the Gateway Bar & Grill north parking lot. NEWLBVR show location and Park & Ride R on the Marinette County Snowmobile and ATV/UTV Map. We will want to start the ride promptly at 9:00am. Head out of Crivitz towards the west and get on Corridor 18W then take the trail south that goes to White Potato Lake. First gas stop opportunity will be at the G3 Gas/Convenience Station right on the trail and on Hwy 64. Then continue south for a ways , then east towards Coleman. Gas available in Colman as well. Then we will head south on Corridor 5 a little ways and have lunch at Ray's Boneyard Saloon, which is also right on the trail and Hwy 141. After lunch we'll head back towards the north on Corridor 5 which will take us to Coleman, then Pound and back to Crivitz.             Or if time permits and all is going well,  :rocker:  we can take a northeasterly loop to Loomis and then back to Crivitz on Corridor 18.

Weather is a big factor here!?  :dunno:  We don't always get adequate snow in this area but as I said earlier they got a good start and hopefully it will be very good on the 18th.

I did a mock run of the travel plan for the Sick Day 100 yesterday. The trails were very good as of then!  ;) I am concerned about this warm spell that is in the weather forecast for these next couple of days.  :dunno:  But we will watch it close and keep the faith that Wednesday will still be a good day to be "sick"  :P

Another Sick Day 100 in the books! :rocker: We had 22 riders 11 0f them on vintage sleds. Nice day with very mild temps. A little to warm actually as the sun came out it started to erode the trail base.  :banghead: However the trails were groomed and flat.... Thank you River Road Riders Snowmonbile Club. :thumb: Also Thank you to Terry at Hoover's Bar for an excellent Lunch Stop. And Thank You to Koch's Performance for buying that first round of beverages.  :beer:  Special  :thankyou: to those of you who rode today. We hope you found it enjoyable and will get "sick" with us again next year! ;)
