These news stories are good at naming the OFSC trail locations, without mentioning that the trails are not yet open.

Not saying it can't happen on open trails, but riding closed trails is part of the issue's.  Well said @Blake G

Alcohol a factor.  

 

Just to make a point here,  our last few days of riding in the NCDN, we witnessed more LOOSERS drinking and smoking weed trailside then ever before.  Very very sad state of affairs.  These riders need off our trails and behind bars before they ruin others lives...

Totally agree TD. That said, until enforcement is stepped up it will get worse.

Agreed. When you can smell weed riding past riders pulled over trailside, smoking weed and drinking,  especially at our NCDN speeds,   there's a problem.

Agreed keep this stuff off the trails.  Wait until your done for the day.  Keeps everyone safer.  More enforcement needed.  Always amazes me up there seeing garbage cans full of empties too.

Well, I'll tell yuh...

 

I have a customer that is aboot 200 yards over the Michigan line, and their town has allowed Grow Houses in. Now they are inundated with new buildings going up all around them. I have heard Mrs. O saying how it really stunk when she delivered one particular time at least, but I never noticed it. But then a cpl weeks ago I was pulling in there, and as I went past the first facility, instantly as I passed, I could smell the place. In December, with winders up! As soon as I got passed tho, it went away.

 

But they say that it can get really bad - especially in the summer. One guy says he doesn't park in the garage anymore. Etc...

 

My customer is hoping to one day sell his building to one of them and move away, but ????

IDK what it would take to convert an older fab building to a grow house?

It may make sense for them to just build new? IDK.

I know they have a LOT of infrastructure inside the first building as I watched them just keep taking stuff inside time after time, and no more often than I was there too...

 

The others are around the corner and I have only driven past those recently for the first time.

It's all new enough that it doesn't show up on the online maps.

Well, I have spent a cpl of days in a warm-up shack once, and I dare say - I was glad for a cpl empty beer cans to rip up and melt snow in.

I don't carry my own, so I rely on others to leave their Schidt anywhere I might need one.
