The run started out with 5 member rigs and 3 guest rigs. After airing down the tires, we were on the snow for about 5 minutes befor running into our first obstical. We had to clear 2 trees that had fallen accross the road. Last weekend for the pre-run we did not have a chainsaw, but this weekend we had three. It made clearing the trees a lot easier. The snow was very wet and heavy. We were able to make it to about 1 1/2 miles from the point we had to turn around the previous weekend. We only had to strap a couple of rigs to get them moving again during the day. The weather was a mix of snow and rain during the day. The group was passed by about 8 snowmobiles near our turn around point, and they came back by us while we were eating lunch. On our way out we stopped and talked to the snowmobilers. They said the snow was so heavy after they passed us, that they only made it another 2 miles. That’s pretty bad when snowmobiles are having problems. All in all, I would have to say that the run went very well. Our guest appeared to have a good time, and I know I did. You can see the video of the run on the main page of the web site, or click on the link below to see it.
We can thank our President, Wild Bill, for the video.
See ya on the next run!!
