My fat bike arrived last Thursday and on Friday we went for a ride on a nearby snowshoe trail. The nearly 4-inch-wide tires gave me good floatation but the narrowness of the trail made it a bit difficult to negotiate, especially on some of the tight turns along the way.
We stopped at a horse ranch along one of our favorite roads and said "hello" to our horse friends, Jo and Noah, and another horse we call "Gray."
On the way home, we stopped at the Namekagon River where open water has recently appeared.
