Smile Upper Jeeper's

Hey, jeeper guy's/gal's.

I see most everyone from Michigan lives down state(troll) and no one lives in the U.P. of Michigan(Gods country). I've looked for rider's up here and wonder actually who is from the U.P. of MI. and maybe even some cheese head's from northern WI, which by the way I won't hold that against anyone.

nice area up there eh? I came through back in June, went from Mid-MI up through and around to Appleton WI. Really nice ride, about 9 hrs. each way in the ol' YJ. We had the family (wife, two boys and I) and we put a luggage carrier on the hitch w/a truck tool box to pack everything in. Had a great time!!!

So, how cold is it up there? Here in Mayville its only about 9 degrees. I can't imagine what you guys must have!

Sault Area, eh !

We have a blast riding the National Forest trails in the Eastern UP. We combine Jeep rides with Geocaching and enjoy getting lost in the woods, finding treasures along the way. (www.geocaching.com)

Thumbs up Yooper run

I live between Mqt and Munising in Chatham. good trails, good mud, and always good fun. Our first run should be end of April or first of May. Probably the Sigans trail.
