Back to the Shack, Pine River MN August 10-12
« on: June 24, 2018, 02:16:04 am »
August 10-12 It's the annual ride up to the serene land on Horseshoe Lake near Pine River. Explore the roads that wind around the lakes and Jack pines of the north, returning to the shack for some R&R, grillin' and chillin' and' around the bonfire. Take in the complimentary north woods ambience of fresh air, loons, beavers, eagles, bullfrogs and other wildlife. If not a camper lodging can be found in town. There will be a couple of spare tents and air mattresses on hand to help lighten your load. Whatever motorcycle you ride, dual sport, adventure tourer or road bike, there are plenty of trails and roads to explore. The Shack is near the central part of the TMAT route (Trans Minnesota Adventure Tour) and plenty of state land with trails and old logging roads for the adventurist.

More details will be posted as they developed.

Haven’t made this for a few years due to the CADV Rally.
I plan on making it this year. Always a great time!

The shack grounds are looking in great shape for a COG camp out, 84 has fresh asphalt to enjoy as an added bonus. I have found the best roads in the area that also take in some of the larger than life roadside attractions, have a seat on the hand of Paul Bunyan or wander into the mouth of a Nothern Pike for a taste of authentic Americana.
Jeff and Tom are reportedly bringing their adventure bikes with Tom trailering his bringing up cooler, coffee maker and other glamping gear. I may leave my dual sport up there to get in some trail time.
Let me know if a lunch meet up will work on the way up Friday.
