Park Rapids Area

3/7/18  Put about 80 miles on yesterday evening and trail were nice and had a great ride.
Now the bad news.  We ran into groomers issues last night while out grooming, we are working on it now.  Seems like a fuel issue, the guys were out past 10:30 last night working on the groomer.  Hope to have it up and running in the next day or so if it is nothing major.  So we only have about 1/3 of our system done.  The west side of the forest got done and the east side of the Heartland Trail.
