I lieu of trying something different... Me and a couple people I ride with decided we are going to take our big trip the first of Febuary. Instead of starting in the U.P., this year we have decided to start on the WI side and make are way into the UP. I have never done this before, so I'm looking for suggestions on places to go or stop... Also, since I'm starting in WI, I'm guessing I will have to get a trail permit. Whats the cost? B/C in MI it is cheap. Also, are there any places that rent newer longer tracked sleds... This will help me decide if I'm going to trailer or not. Some of the people we meet up with are from Missouri and will be renting regardless.
