Did you enjoy the museum?  Are you suddenly becoming more friendly to owning a minivan and taking up golf?  These are serious questions.

I did enjoy the museum actually. It was an exhibit on the effects of Brewing on Guelph and Wellington county.  Some very rare artifacts on display from Sleeman and private collectors and I was the only person there on a Saturday morning. Had the whole place to myself for over an hour.......lol

This is an extremely rare Sleeman Tray from the turn of the century and the main item I went to see. I've talked to several big collectors who say they've never seen one in person. On loan from a private collector.

This picture is just fantastic for a brewery collector. Taken in the late 1920's or early 30's. I own one of the Kuntz's trays the waiter is holding. Notice the empty beer cases stacked up behind the bartender and the Labatt advertisement on the wall to the right. I have a collection of the "On Draught Today" signs myself. Picture on loan from a private collector whom I met in person last September. He's written several books on Canadian Brewerianna including "The Canadian Brewerianist Beer Tray Inventory" which is a complete list of all beer trays manufactured for the Canadian Market. Ignore my reflection.

Just something I got started in a year ago and I find interesting.

No minivan or golf in my future.

Last Sunday in the UP.   This is on the trail, not a plowed road.  Trail had a solid 2-3' base too.

That's my 18 year old who is 6' 4 1/2". Shit ton of snow up there, and they are expecting another 2'+ in the next couple of weeks.  We'll be riding well into April again this year. 

Looks like snows been pushed up there? :dunno:

We we're riding from lanse to big bay and we hit a pocket that must of had 6-8' of snow on the ground. Was weird but it was like riding in a snow canyon. You couldn't see over the banks of the trail. I wish I had my GoPro on for that. Great riding that day.

Windy out and drifts were 2-3 feet in places.  Fun but was caught flat footed a few times.  Kinda felt like a gay sled commercial out there at times busting into and over the drifts.  My buddy thinks he blew out a rear because he used “a friend of friend” to revalue his shocks.  :lmao: So..just me bombing around today.

Been a  couple years since I’ve seen the snow half way up the shelters.

Chillin’ in the shelter and saw Benny out there....he went by me a couple of times hitting the throttle and flipping me off.  I think he wanted a piece of me!!!!!  :lmao:

There is snow like that in nw Maine and Quebec right now.  Probably the deepest snow, and best conditions in years imo.  We hit some untracked logging roads yesterday that were just heaven.  60-70 mph, drop it down a bit and jump off onto the bank, powder exploding, just awesome stuff.  Sno bunje came out at least a half dozen times with bro Sal Rosenstein and me. :bc:

Decided to head out again for a quick power line jaunt to test out some new ear buds and spy goggles with my 509.  Sweet fuck it’s fun out here today!!  Not another slender in sight!!  Winds tend to scare people?  It is crispy out here tho.  Blizzard warning tonight I guess?
