Doug, it is a no brainer, bring the snow trac, make it the largest gathering of snow tracs outside of Sweden, and just think, you will not need to grease the rollers each night on the tucker....

Hmm, I was trying to decide who I was going to hang with, steel pontoons, rubber trackers, or the Snow Tracs. Got the foot and hand brakes working on the Snow Trac but it now has a large puddle of gear oil under the transaxle!

Those seals at the small sprocket are a chore to get to. Unless someone cut holes in the sides.

Hey All,

Got my Best Western reservation, and they tell me the Snowcat block is full! (They also mentioned a hockey tournament or something, so things were filling up fast)

Looking forward to meeting all of you! Anything I need to do to sign up? Bringing the Imp with a brand new pull behind skied trailer contraption.

Coming from Lake Stevens, WA (30 miles North of Seattle). Do any of you PNWers have any thoughts on the route? I've traveled I-90/I-84 before (we would stop over in Pendleton), just not the stretch up to McCall. Total distance is about 550 miles. The other option: I-90/WA 26 to Lewiston, then South on US-95 to McCall (500 miles total) is the other option. Been on most of it, just not the Idaho portion. Looks twisty? Any advice is appreciated. Rather have a new and scenic, but not if it is really slow or sketchy, as compared to 84 thru Oregon.

Thanks too all who have put this together. It looks like it will be a great time.

Also, have seen you talk about permits/licenses, but haven't caught any specifics...Do we know any more?

I've taken both routes and really do not have a preference. I would call it a draw. If high speed is your thing, the then 90 to 82 to 84 might shave some time but the other route is scenic. Once you drop into Lewiston, the route along the river is nice. It is a bit twisty but flat and really no concerns. We will likely head the southern route this year and up through Weiser into New Meadows and McCall. We plan on Leaving Anacortes early Wed morning.

We will help you find a warm bed at a nice hotel if the Best Western fills up...and you can still park your trailer next door and come to the special breakfast on Thursday.

Default Snow, right on schedule

And then 2 hours later right on schedule. Looks like the Clowder and McCallin’ will have great snow!

You will need to have an Idaho SnowMobile sticker to run at two of the locations. They are $32.50 for out of state Cats. We have a special arrangement with license agent Mile High Powersports in McCall and will have a big stack of them at the Little Ski Hill, the Thursday breakfast, Brundage and Wellington/Cougar Mountain. No worries.

I’m thinking of having a casual BBQ at my shop on Tuesday night for all the early arriving Cats. Anybody interested? Steve
