I'm an early riser, jump on the sled about sunrise or so! that is assuming its an early night and no late night poker games. Just a thought!

I'm hoping that I'm going to get up at a reasonable time on Saturday morning. I want to make the most out of that weekend. Have to use what little time I have to the fullest extent. I guess it all depends upon what happens around the place on Friday night. I know quite a few of us will be there so it's hard to say what will happen. I'm not really much of a drinker so I won't be up half the night drinking and waking up with a hangover on Saturday. [:D]

I'm an early riser when it comes to riding, even if I have been up till 2 the night before. We will be targeting to be riding by 8 in my book, earlier if possible. Once the post about who's going and where people are staying has been up a couple more days, we will put together a game plan of where to meet. My gut tells me right now that the gas station in Finland may be the spot. As of right now it looks like there will be 20 or so of us that will be leaving from whispering pines.

Riding by 8 sounds good to me. I'm an earlier riser if sledding is in the air. I won't be able to sleep anyways because of the excitement. Last weekend we were on the sleds by 7:00 A.M. and finally stepped off for the day at 7:00 P.M.

8am sounds good. I think any earlier and it would be hard to get everyone rounded up. Especially with the drinking that'll happen friday night lol! Erick has a good point about not being able to sleep. We are going up friday morning and plan to do some final tuning friday so we arn't wrenching on the trails. The local snow has been non-existant so we havn't had much days for tuning and we have 3 new sleds and a fully rebuilt sled in our group this year (and they are all 440s!). Don't be alarmed, mine is running great and the other two are real close but not perfect yet.

8:00 probably works best as is not super light until 7:30 or so, anyway! Yea we left for the shore last weekend at like 5:30 am and I could only sleep until 4:00 wanted to hit the road!

Well I finished up my gas rack on the back of my sled. So now I have an official 7.5 gallons total I ride with. I have room on the back for a bigger tank if I can find the perfect shape. Right now it is a 2.5 and I think I could get a 3.5 to fit on there really well if it was the right shape.

The gas station in Finland would be fine. Greasemonkey and his buddy, along with our group of 6 will ride down from Isabella. So is 8:00am the meeting time at the gas station?

If you want to meet up with us in Isabella John, and ride down together, let me know.

Ditchbanger, that sounds fine with me. Mnsledneck can hook up with us too. He is staying at the Pines. We can meet up with you at the cafe at about 7:00 or 7:30 and still be in Finland by 8:00 It will be just me on fri. and maybe Jeff with us on sat. He might be bringing his Daughter up so he doesn,t know if he will be rideing with us yet. See you up there, John

My schedule is the same as Darkstars. My group plans on getting the bugs worked out in the sleds and the final tuning tweaks on friday.

Between 7:00 and 7:30 at the Cafe sounds good. See you then.

Just you on Friday? Are you showing anyone around? Not sure what we are doing yet, gotta talk to the rest of the guys in our group.

No problem Erick. We can ride the trails or off trail. Let me know what everyone wants to do. The traffic on the trails will be pretty heavy on sat. I will meet everyone at the Finland co op gas station at 8:00 on fri. See you there.

Grease, Erick,we should be up there by 8:00 am! As of today, one guy added to our group so there will be 3 of us. Yea trails on friday usually are good up there, even the dreaded state trail. So friday 8:00 gas station as well. Is there only one gas station in finland? I haven't been up to finland since last year! We will roll into the whisper around 7:30!
