Week Two Update:

In review of cider toms adventure list, it Looks like the Event one was a success.

Event two, the midwest cat clowder on deck.
  • Art work for the shirts is approved and going to press as soon as the reflective print is selected.
  • The dinner program has a large enough attendance to warrant a buffet style meal in the Gun barrel lodge. ( dietary restrictions encouraged to speak up so accommodations can be made ) off the menu ordering available as well.
  • Ski lessons available
  • steeply discounted rentals and lift tickets make this an affordable family event.
  • Three large lodges in the same neighbor hood have been secured in addition there are extra rooms available if you are not sure how to handle that aspect.
  • 14 day pricing on plane tickets is now. make arrangements.

Pictures help right?

I took this photo.

It is used with permission.

For all that wonder how the pontoon vehicles handle the learning curve for Wisconsin winters,
I humbly submit:

Pontoon training course. Classes will fill fast sign up early, not a requirement for tuckers attending the GTG but it is strongly encouraged

With a little fabrication and a few thousand rollers that could be a nice two track Tucker that floats. Or maybe just strap that on as a life vest before the next run across the lake.

Glad to see her back on dry land, hopefully there is no lasting damage!

If you still are on the fence about flying into the event to join up with the tucker mafia and the Yooper crew and the cross road connectors.

check out the rates to fly into the event from MSP or ORD.

Air choice one flys to many midwest locations.

So pontoons meant for water are not equal to pontoons made for snow?? Which is made of water?



Just glad no one got hurt and the cat made it home in good shape.

to the camping, Glamping crowd.

and to the hearty towing champs that tugged throughout the sub zero weather last year......

Check this forcast out.

a 60 increase in temps....

and in the poking fun at each other department......

the pacific northwest antifreeze ( the environmentally friendly stuff) may have a chance of staying liquid.....
Oh wait someone went air cooled this year! welcome to the fun side of life.

Question????

There is a photojournalist who is planning to do a article on the Clowder. Is there anyone who has room for a passenger on Fri. He may want to ride along. Perhaps just the Cooper Peak portion.

Also I've had a couple of inquiries about the possibility or a ride from some other photographers. Any one?

Well.....the photojournalist is a young guy so I would certainly think a rough ride would not be a problem.

Thank you.
