Stephen,
Are we pretty much waiting to see what the weather does to find out if your better half will be coming along?

That would make a deadly Tshirt, another one could be "no I don't bloody Facebook"

"Bloody" being the operative word, if I remember most scenes that Samuel Jackson appeared in. Great backstory on how the film came about, and who fought who for parts here: http://www.vanityfair.com/online/oscars/2013/01/pulp-fiction-oral-history-quentin-tarantino

Pulp fiction has to be one of my all time favourites.

Bring out the UL gimp ;-)

Whose motorcycle is this?
It's a chopper, baby.

Who's Zed
Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead.

Cool. Do you want to hike in to a neat, scenic spot?

Was going to pass on bringing a few good brews, but if we're base camping, I may still do that.

Any idea when you're arriving?

Assuming the weather is "bad" but not dangerously so, are you still game?

Hiking in to a scenic spot suits me fine mate as would carrying in some decent booze.

I say we would aim to get there for lunch time on the Friday afternoon as trying to find somewhere for a sneaky camp on the Thursday might be a pain in the proverbial, and don't want some red neck whispering sweet nothing in my ear at 3am.

I may turn back if I pass Noah's Ark on the the motorway but otherwise count me in :-)

Sounds like we got ourselves a plan!

Are you and your lovely both meat eaters? I'd love to grill out once.

Looks like the UP is getting another dumping of snow. It's been an active late winter!

I still prefer it to be decisively below freezing at this point. Less sloppy.

Nice one, its supposed to get colder next week but I think the long range forecast is a magic show.

... still lurking here due to jealousy:-)

I'm a bit color blind ... is HOHRSC saying the snowpack is 40-50 inches deep up there?

And in the Hurons, they're looking at 50-75 inches. But nobody is allowed there because the rich people own all that land.
