    Beautiful snow and trail, enjoyed it. Took me 2.5 hours to get home, but that's okay. Should've listened to the road report before starting home to avoid 23 S, which I got on and immediately encountered an accident which necessitated a slowdown and getting back off the hwy! If anyone is interested in exploring the metroparks along the Huron River in SE Wayne County, let me be your guide! I will post the pics I took if I can figure it out. Anybody from this group going for the Boyne Mansion getaway? Downriver Diana

    Roads were scary. Turned around and went home to be safe.

    Friends don't let friends become a Darwin Award. People should have stayed home to be safe.

    Since the church I attend canceled their Sunday AM service, I will do the Maybury hike with BS Hiking.

      Went to Maybury and there was 3-5 inches of new snow. It was sticky and I could not do much skiing. Many others were having problems with sticking snow.

    I will probably rent skate skis, since it's groomed out there. I'm not very good at it, but I am determined to keep trying!

    January 2, 2014

    • Jim G.

      Skate lanes are soft and slow right now. Classic tracks are set and relatively firm :-)

      January 5, 2014

  • Jim G.

    Still snowing hard here. We have gotten close to 12" right here. Skate lanes are soft and slow. Classic tracks are set and firm. Have fun. I'm heading going home to plow again then heading over to Brighton Rec. with my backcountry skis :-)

    I have never done any winter sports before. But would like to learn and try... can I still be part of this adventure?

    January 4, 2014

    • IKO

      Yes. I will teach newbies. No problem.

  • Cheryl

    so I am a maybe for this. I live in East Lansing and we are supposed to get 14 inches of snow over the next 24 hours. If this is the case, I won't be able to make it because the driving will be terrible. Thanks for organizing this, though. It looks like so much fun.
