You would be surprised how good it can be....

I thought that was a national thing...

The WI cup joke is/was about my daughter NEEDING that cup last weekend to take to a concert. "that is the perfect cup for this mission" well the cup was AWOL, and found hanging out with marshmallows in a smores plot......

So I got the mail in today.....

Back in May a forum member and I picked up a snow trac from another forum member.... the deal was stressful and full of negotiations that finally concluded with the inclusion of maple syrup. as we were on a tight planes trains and automobiles turn and burn trip the syrup was no where in sight when the hand shaking was done......
We shared a nice lunch at a local nonfranchise food joint and departed to make a flight in MKE......

well as most hand shake nice guy deals when you are happy the final items are not so important.

Ironically in the same delivery vehicle was an excited mail man, who pulled all the way up the drive and stated with big eyes!!!!!! What are those..... I calmly took the packages stating one was a package of new Two band track guides for participants of the summer workshop......... the other box must be for the kids.... then I noticed he was entranced with the beauty of the clowder of cats over my shoulder....

Are those for sale!

well it appears you all need your neck exercise today. and it also appears that midwest snow cat people don't like spending time on computers when there is beer pork and snowcats in one spot.....

So for the folks that were here in spirit, Here are the four photos I managed to sneak with my phone and shitty camera. man I need to upgrade my media capabilities.

I am so very sorry in advance.

Thanks to:
NE Iowa
Awehellsnow
Friendly brenda
KT-4's much better half Rachel
Kempen excavating
an un-named national traveller specializing in east west shipping
Nelson cat
My nephew ryan
(and everyone that helped paddle the swan across the pond so elegantly)
the feet are flying under the surface, and the swan just glides along)



Thankyou


By the numbers.
18 Number of hours of sleep I had since Thursday.
2 Lbs of coffee ground in a 1864 enterprise #1 mill
45 combined number of years between distressed
snow tracs operation
145 degrees Fahrenheit of smoked swine flesh
Infinity Number of smiles on kids and adults faces

The best observation for me beyond appreciating the hard work of the folks making in happen, was a guy walking around the compound Who nobody knew. I introduced myself and boom the clowder event went up another member... He lives twenty minutes away and has a tucker, (New friend) He was dumbfounded that *other* people had snow cats AND friends

sorry for the neck stretch, take it up with the 12 year olds in china that built me phone....

I'm starting to think you might have not seen the 4x4 version.... It was down stairs.

Hydraulic driven front tracks......

I will snag a photo for you if you missed it......

Well the driftless region of WI is a bit west of here so, yes we do get drifters in here....

There was a snow squirrel seen running about, So we took him in fed and watered him and when he came to his senses we sent him on his way. Not even sure he noticed the orange to yellow swap.....

It was an upgrade either way...

I don't know about the snow storm or the running squirrel but there was a Darth Vader looking Sno-Cat seen in the area. Rumor has it that when the factory clears out the freighter and sedan they are restoring that the next one will be a 1953 743 freighter round nose. Just saying....

Sweet looking Snow master.... Wait what happened to the snow trac you left with?

That does have a bit of a vader look to it.

as far as the clowder attendance i still think the Aktivs out numbered the tuckers... maybe not when measured in metric tons but......

also

Technically the longest tow award will have to be recalled and awarded to the rightful winner.....

Well maybe not.....

Snow shadow towed out and back only stopping to change colors.. the drifter went further, but only towed one way...... Hmm this is one for the judges...
