Just for anyone that would like to know. The trails around Northwest
Hennipin County in Minnesota are done being groomed for the
season.

Drove the cat to the storage shed today for summer repairs.

For the two cats Northwest trails logged over 200 hours on the
North unit and approx 175 hours for the south.

Hope everyone that rode the trails this year were able to see
the effort at least once or twice. To those of you that rode off
the trail where you weren't supposed to when it was clearly
marked, remember when we don't have anymore trails
how much fun it was to cut across that golf course.

Lets hope for some snow next year as well.

Thanks for all the hard work.  Took groomer training myself at Butch's place
on Larkin a couple of years ago.  Needless to say, didn't need it that
year...no snow.  Grooming is gonna be more important every year as the
suspensions get bigger.  Again thanks guys, NW trails are a good system for
the local mpls. stuff.  It ain't like the trails "up north" cause your not
up north but what the heck.  Got to ride from Maple Grove, MN to Plymouth,
MN a few times this year.  Nice mix of ditch, county parks, and farm
fields!!  If we get our traditional boys basketball storm, I'll go one more
time.  Makes the fuel stabilizer deal alot more fun.

Thanks again - Joel

Hey, you feel like dragging it up here?We have about 7 miles of trail that
could REALLY use some grooming//imagine the same 7 miles of trail getting
beat up all season every day, and every sled has at least 2"x136" track on
it. :-( Its just our acess to the mountain, so its necessary...but doesnt
get groomed.
Oh well, only 2 or 3 months left, so it shouldnt get too much worse..haha..

I would if I could. I was able to groom with the guys at Togwotee this
year for 12 hours and that was an experience that I really enjoyed.
Not much difference in the fact that you are grooming but the
equipment alone is on another world. We have a 1988 and a 92 Tucker
Sno Cat with no blade and the normal width tracks and the arrowhead
drags. Togwotee has a 1998 and a 2000 with 10' wide tracks a 12' 8 way
blade and diesels to boot. Those trails are like yours but get groomed
regularly.
I run the paddles so I know what they do to the trails everywhere but I
wouldn't go back to anything less.

Have a good 2 months and maybe you could send some of that snow
down to Wyoming next season.
