MI: Porkies and Bohemia for New Years 08-09

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

I will be heading up to the Porkies on December 28th and spending 4 or 5 days there and then we are driving to Bohemia for the tail end of our trip. Just wanted to put it out there that there is gonna be 6 or 8 guys in their early 20s riding up there for a few days. Both places are generally pretty dead so I thought maybe this would drum up some interest. We also have a huge chalet 15 miles from the porkies that we will be using the whole time we are up there, so if you are around, post back and we can try to meet up. The chalet has two fireplaces, hot tub, the works, so we'll be partying there nightly and a bunch of people from Crystal Falls and Iron Mountain/River are coming up for a party on New Years eve. Its gonna be epic, hope to see you there!

freaq off the leash

I'll be heading north on the 27th. Crystal that day and Boho 28th, 29th and if snow warrants, a few hours on the 30th.

It would be great to meet up with some bears... Jer, you gonna be around? I'd even be up for sharing the drive if it works out for anyone

Slight change of plans for me. It'll be Marquette Mountain on Sunday.
Woohooo!

BF, according to the weather forecast, its supposed to be 39* and rain all day Saturday. We may want to rethink hitting Crystal, depending on the dependability of the weather man.

I will still almost certainly be at Bohemia on New Year's. It's supposed to sleet/freezing rain up there tomorrow for awhile, but not a downpour like the lower peninsula is supposed to get. Last year was exactly the same: great opening followed by rain the weekend after Xmass followed by a huge dump on New Year's. No huge dump in the long-range forecast, but I'm superstitous.

According to our 7 day forecast, the only day we're supposed to get a downpour is Saturday, then snow showers off and on for the remainder of the week.
We all know how reliable the weather man is

I'll look for you. I'll be in orange pants and a stickered up gaper helmet.

Well that kinda sucks. I may re-evaluate my timing tonight.

Last year I was all set for this trip but when it started raining I canceled. Then dumpage.

Saturday is the only day that looks ugly in the forecast. You can stop by here and pick up your stuff then head north to catch the fun times ooop nort.

*This doesn't look sooooo bad:
Details for Saturday, December 27
Rain likely. High 43F. Winds SSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 70%. Rainfall around a half an inch. Saturday night: Periods of rain. Low 27F. Winds NNW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 80%.

Long hair, beard, red jacket, brown Trooper helmet, will likely be skiing on a pair of ARV's with Alta/Satanic Nazi Eagle/AWK stickers.
