    Ride Michigan's annual spring ride will be in Fredrick this year again. The date for the ride is May 5th and will depart at 10am. We have not finalized the starting point or route put there are a couple trail heads in the area. Some of us will be going up on the 4th and staying for the weekend. There is a campground with with cabin just south of Gaylord that I have talked with and they will be open and are offering us a discount Headwaters Camping & Cabins - Campground just mention SXS Nation. This is where I will be staying. There are also several hotels and motels in the area and I'm sure other will be commenting on where they will be staying. Watch this tread and the Ride Michigan Facebook page for more details.

    Those are some huge pull thru sites! Looks like you could park two rv’s on there.

    Here is our route for the spring ride we will leave out of the Fredrick parking lot off of county road 612 and head south to Lake City. This ride will be about 120 miles and will have a stop for gas in Lake City at about the halfway point. For the ones staying at Headwaters we will ride from the campground to the parking lot that will add about another 10 miles to the route.

    Less than a month away for this. Figured we should bump it to the top! Time was sneaking up again. Just got my Ams oil order in for the Ranger. I also need to get over at some point to get the camper uncovered and fired up. Its just been too darn cold lately! Hopefully spring comes in strong and we get some warm temps here soon.

    If the weather would ever warms up and I can get my machine finished I'd like to get up there and do a pre-run and make sure the route I have planned is going to work.

    We are headed up Thursday mid afternoon now to get an extra full camping day. Will probably be up there at 730 or so.

    @Dave Do you have a starting point yet? I have 6 machines that want to ride up from their houses at Houghton lake Saturday morning for the ride but need to know where the starting point is.

    Looks like you may have skipped a couple “beginner levels” there Steve! Very nice. That thing is a beast. Looks like it has auto levelers. That should make things a lot easier on uneven campsites. Especially with a big triple axle.

    Yeah it shouldn't be to difficult. The hardest part is squeezing 45' of trailer into most campgrounds. I told my kids we will be camping in Walmart parking lots most of the time.:D I had to go big enough to fit the limo inside and also just trying to keep up with you and the Wicks elegant glamping style..:p
