The musketowa? or the macatawa. Not familiar with macatataw in that area at least.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 10:31:45 pm »
rode up the macatawa, west on Taft St north of Coopersville, follow west to Walnut Dr, then west of State Rd, south on 120th ave, and get on the trail at that point. rode it west into spring lake, then up 3rd St to Dogwood Dr, 180th-> Hickory St->Black Lake Rd->Pontaluna.

So where did you get on and off the north bank and how did you connect it to Hoffmaster.
@ Jetlink « Fri 8:41:32 pm »
Thanks Z, Hope to get another day or two of riding before my return to work next week.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 8:41:06 pm »
rode the north bank a couple times so far on the pj hoffmaster to GR rides

The other neat part was that my uncle (he is married to my dad’s sister) grew up in the area. So it was all his old stomping ground. Brought out lots of memories and stories.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 8:39:39 pm »

Conditions were nearly perfect; little wind and trail was paved and in great shape.

Probably wouldn’t go for a bag. Would just want a small self contained lamp. I really want an LED flash kit facing rear for my seat post more than anything.
@ ~Z~ « Thu 10:30:40 pm »
I have a bag up near my handbars on the top tube that holds it and my phone though.
@ ~Z~ « Thu 10:30:20 pm »
i picked up this one. you would need a small bag to put the battery in though.
@ ~Z~ « Thu 10:29:08 pm »
that they are.. lots of turmoil going on at two of my main accounts. at least the 3rd site is pretty quiet with issues this week.
@ Jetlink « Thu 10:29:02 pm »
good. I decided to get a light but havent actually got one yet
@ ~Z~ « Thu 10:27:27 pm »
got a new bike light. stays in place a lot better than my old reglued and multiple time re-rubberbanded together one :)
@ Jetlink « Thu 10:26:58 pm »

I’m in the commercial building cleaning service industry. We have positions paying between $15-$20 which is the highest I’ve ever seen in my 35 year career and we get either no responses or people just going through the motions so they can show they’re making an effort to find a job but they really want to stay on unemployment.
@ DaveO « Thu 9:21:53 am »
Years ago working retail, we had 10 applicants. 7 failed the drug test, the other 3 never came back. At the entry level, just finding people that can pass the drug test is an issue.
@ DaveO « Thu 9:19:45 am »
School bus driver, must have clean driving/criminal record, must pass physical, drug/alcohol testing, CDL testing, school bus course, work split shift and no summer pay, must put up with students and parents with boorish behavior. Hourly pay rate is good. The rest of the benefits for a position many don’t qualify for? Nowadays not so good.
@ ~Z~ « Thu 8:12:34 am »
"no one wants to work" - wonder what the pay is out in Lake O land. they are starting at $18.70 an hour here and still are having trouble getting people
