Mitch.. looks like you found the snow Glad you had fun. i went up north just to get away, worked on a few things and rode the 4 wheeler to keep me busy, had about a inch of snow.

The sled is still idleing in the garage waiting for snow.

I hope you don't pull a 4 place trailer, cause on the way up a excursion a I had a few dissagreements and had to sorta put him to the shoulder of the road a few times

No, that wasn't me, I am sure I would do the same but I would not want to be on the other end of someone doing it to me. I am all road rage when someone screws with me on the road. In fact I have had to pull over and let them go so they would get away from me as soon as possible.

That looks great, I'll be heading up to the Catskills for xmas/new years vacation.
Hope to get a day in Old Forge, NY, they've been getting pounded with snow up there!

I know it's fun, but it's still just too blasted cold. I'd rather wax my boat in 75 degree sunny Florida weather.

Still havent gotten my sleds out for a blast
New Years should have great conditions out here if this weather pattern stays for a few more weeks.

This was in Grand Marais, MI about 2 hours from the bridge, find 77 on the map and go straight up to Lake Superior. Tantrum, I still plan on making the trip so be prepared to ride like never before. The T-Cat is dialed in now and ran like a champ. I was cruising at 80 at 1/2 throttle all weekend. All the trails up there look like this, all are groomed 2-3 times a day on weekends so it is always high speed on the straights. Curves are another story, I take them like a granny but thats because the other idiot coming head on is racing himself and may be in my lane. I have never crashed and my plan is to keep it that way.
