Hey! We hail from Yorkville. If anyone asks, I explain it as being SW of Aurora. And if I'm in a different state, I just say I'm from Chicago :p In reality, it takes a good 50 minutes to get to downtown Chicago on a good day. On a bad day, I've been stuck in traffic for 3 hours... We've been enjoying the trails in "up north" WI, mainly around Butternut/Mercer Turtle-Flambeau Flowage area. We've enjoyed the trails around Eagle River and Sayner, and while fun, they were much more crowded than the TFF. We'd love to sled in the UP, heard great things about it. And I suppose it would make sense to find a trail closer to home in IL, eh?

Also, hola to the Somonauk peeps! We've got a friend that just moved up from Peoria living in Somonauk. He works for the Yorkville school district. Unfortunately he doesn't snowmobile, but we're trying to get him to, and of course trying to get him to commit to a certain brand *coughCATahemcough* :)
Schaumburg, IL here ride mostly in WI at our cabin in Rome or Fenimore Boscobel area as well as Eagle River and Spooner Long lake . I have friends of the family that help run region 5.
Originally from Rochelle, now live in Dekalb, but ride out of Creston if that makes any sense. I really should try to get out of region 3 this year and try the trails around region 5.
Kirkland its near dekalb, ride the trail system out by byron and up by castle rock wi.
Spring Grove, Region 5, any further north you will be in Wisconsin.
