On Friday, March, 11th, the final day of riding, the group of 6 riders rode 104 miles from (Eveleth,MN to Two Harbors, NN). We safely arrived about 11:30 A.M. The biggest challenge was Tyler finding a snowmobile track along side the trail…. and further up the field was Grant Poll’s sled, it has coasted to a stop and was missing…. its track! Fortunately, we were only about 3 miles for our destination for the trip, so it was a quick and easy recovery! In addition, Pete’s sled had brake failure the last 70 miles and had to anticipate and ride more cautious… Glad these issues did not happen earlier in the adventure.

Today we rode through Paul Bunyan country. I know Pete thinks everything is Big in Texas, but those Texans have nothing on Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox. Everything today was big, big miles, big fun, big Laughs, big smiles, big trees, big mines, big Hills.

It was a Great Big Day!

Randy, Pete, Dave and Tyler took the off Day 9  in Mahnomen, MN to rest up, while Hughie and Grant went down to Detroit Lakes for a loop ride and a supply stop at the Ski-Doo dealership. We all left Mahnomen around 8 this morning and headed to Nevis, MN. Stopped at the headwaters of the Mississippi on the way to lunch. We all decided to have breakfast for lunch at the Northwoods Cafe and it was the best meal I’ve had in a long time. We left Nevis and finished the ride to Pequot Lakes, MN. We will stay here for the night and head on to Eveleth, MN for the last full day of riding. Rode 167 miles today.

Tyler Pattullo

Tyler is part of the Pattullo clan and has rode snowmobiles since he was on a kittycat at age 3 (27 years). He has participated in 3 MichCanSka adventures. Tyler is our Sled Recovery Expert (SRE) and continued to sharpened his skills while assisting his Uncle Pete (blown belt and tow) and assisting Hughie in getting his sled unstuck (a daily exercise)

Along with the rest of the Pattullo clan, he likes to give his uncle Pete a hard time.. His best quote of the trip was “That’s the stupid’s thing I’ve ever heard” when his uncle Pete tried to explain how to meet up with him and Hughie after the group got separated. In the end, he followed directions and it worked out!

Linda’s Trail Report:
Jim and I didn’t ride yesterday and spent the day in International Falls.
Today we had a wonderful day!!! We rode 157 miles. (95 miles to Baudette, MN on trails and 62 miles more on Lake of the Woods). What a great experience. We started in International Falls and ended at Sportsman’s Oak Island Resort. From there we went to the northern most point of the continental USA. See the picture. Hughie (in the green windbreaker) only got stuck a couple of times today. The first time I ever went to a McDonald’s on a snowmobile for lunch.
