JD Family Reunion – Hulbert/Newberry MI Feb 20 – 24, 2008.
SLED CHICKS NEWBERRY INVASION
What a BLAST!
We left Prior Lake at 12:30 PM CST. We arrived in Newberry at about 10:45 PM CST. We arrived to a very happy group of people partying in the hall! Woody greeted me with an incredible bear hug!! Woody and everyone else helped us bring out stuff up to our room. THANKS!
Let the FUN BEGIN!
With Brad taking the lead for our group we head out to the beautiful snow waiting! Thursday’s ride was INCREDIBLE! We headed to the falls – the trails were SMOOTH and FAST! So much snow everywhere! The edges of trails in some places were taller than my sled!
After lunch at the Falls – we headed back and found a great field to play in!
Doug did some great carvin’, falling over and getting stuck.
A few of us decided to chill while the rest played
Check it out! Kelly and Larry RIPPED IT UP!
Check out this sugar bowl we found and tracked up GOOD!
Sadly we had to head back, on the way back Brad broke his shaft and had to be towed out of the bush! Coat liners are not only for warmth!!
Turns out – there was more carnage out on the trails! Mr. Ellis killed his kitty!!
I think this should be Guy’s new profile pic!
Will and Guy head back to town…
We wrapped the day up with dinner at Timber Charlie’s
Friday’s Ride – we trailered up to the park and ride and hit the trails from there! We even tried our hand at some BOODOCKIN’ with all the ducklings following Papa Duck Brad!
We had lunch at Shirley’s Happy Hour in Hulbert, got to see the FAMOUS BISKIT and the DEER! Ohhhhhhhh deer!!
The crew ready to hit the trails back to the hotel for CHILI!
Saturday’s ride was the ride of a LIFE TIME! Brad took his ducklings out on the most incredible ride E V E R!
We made our way to the other side of the falls – Kelly slides down, getting back up was the challenge!
A few others made their way down the hill -
The falls are beautiful!
Time to head out and do some big time BOONDOCKIN’! It was amazing – there are NO WORDS to describe it! Your mind is empty, your thoughts are only on what is in front of you. You are poofing through the deep snow, like floating on clouds!
We found this field with a few bear bait thingy’s in it. NO TRACKS – YET!
We played there for a long time! I’ve got some great video footage, but I don’t know how to post it on You Tube yet. Once I do, I will post the links. So, for now, you just get pictures!
Mr. and Mrs. Revegade were in their element! With all the stucks the snow is packed in the foot rails up and over the ends of the seats!
Brad and Kelly were in the mood!
Doug and Andie
Ali and Scott
Eric and Andie
Larry LOVES LARRY! HI LARRY!
The day was not complete without a couple of SLED CHICKS Pictures
And, we have to have our SLED BOYS to dig us out!
During our rides, there were things that just had to be jumped…
Jimmy checks gravity
And it works
Will was sooooooooo giddy he just had to JUMP IN! I’ve got video of this too, once I figure You Tube out, I will post a link of the video!
I received lots of pictures from Suzy and thought they were fun, so I figured I’d post them too!
Here’s the crew that rode with Suzy
Suzy’s FAMOUS Liquid Apple Pie – I gotta have that recipe!
Here is Mr. Ellis with his replacement sled; luckily the Thunderchicken is at home SAFE! I wonder how the introduction will go…
Here’s Junior – way to go FLY BOY! God Bless ya man!
A couple more of the rest of the family!
Once back at the hotel, it was PAHTY IN THE HALL all night every night! Going through all the pictures was a blast! I had to only pick a few cuz I was already closing in on over 75 pictures for this journal!
I will start out with a picture of Guy Ellis failing as a garbage man. He DROPPED the garbage off, rather than taking it away! Silly Silly Guy. That’s the door to my room – Guy had no idea I knew what he was doing. I watched him through the peep hole in the door – LAUGHING MY ARSE OFF the whole time. He was sneaking around and giggling like a little kid! TOOOOOOO MUCH FUN!
Kelly is a FAB hair dresser – see her handy work…
Guy says “IT’S TOO TIGHT!”
Here are some shots of the PAHTY IN THE HALL!
Wasn’t that boy band called Boys in the Hall?
Cold beer is way more important than clean hands!!
Anyone want any Waugh Waugh?
The 2008 JD Family Reunion with the SLED CHICKS Newberry Invasion came to a close at the Famous Shirley’s Happy Hour with Biskit and Shirley as our wonderful hosts. What a great night! So many pictures, so hard to pick which ones to post! The memories are great. When I think of it, I laugh out loud! What a blast!
Vinnie, Squat and Woody were the SUPERSTARS of the night. AMAZING talent among them!
When you have SUPER STARS, you have fanatic fans!
Some of the stars can’t take it…
Biskit enjoys the show
The entertainment continued the rest of the night!
So, COP A SQUAT and enjoy!
The Happy Audience
The SLED CHICKS having a blast!
Well, that’s it. I hope you enjoyed it. I know I did. The best time with the best people! Meeting new folks, seeing everyone else again and making memories that will last forever and making plans for next year!
I LOVE YOU GUYS!
REV IT UPx3!

ScottiKING - Nope, he has to be color blind to think that all goes together! Looks like Technocolor puke!
You should have seen him carving back and forth across the fire road! O M G! AMAZING! If I only had video of that, but he was running in front of me and I could barley drive my sled watching him let alone film him!
I can't wait to head back up in March! THINK SNOW!!!
