I bought my Tucker because it seemed to be the best machine to serve my purpose without realising the history behind the company and the development of the Sno-Cat - I'm finding it very interesting

Doesn't look like much traction with those tracks. Meant for running on tundra with low snow?

Doesn't look like your going to let it go too far... you still got its leash chained to a pole in the concrete!


Is this to make up for the one that our friends slipped out of its resting place here in Wassila under the cover of the midnight sun?
very sneaky those two........

And If you think only one will make up for removing that very revered piece of Washington history park here in Alaska think again!!!
Better ship up and sell a couple dozen!
then maybe we be even!

It belongs here with the previous owner at Mt St. Helens. We plan to take it up on the Mt. and bury it 300 feet deep with Harry.

What point did Harry sell it. It must have been elsewhere for the eruption?

Very Cool pics. Must be great to see this family history and what is still in people's collections today trying to figure out what is what.

Keep them coming!
