Iron wood has a dandy self service car wash.

so before I leave home, I spray everything down with super sudds and soap. flop a rubber tarp under the tracks and fold it back on the cat.

when I get into clowder ville. I wash it with more soap. when I get home I spray it again them WD40 the heck out of it.

and for the record, should ever chose to attend. I will work very hard to get you a cat to run.

Good operators are hard to come by.

A great place to test vehicle weaknesses, whether it be grenading gearboxes or combusting cab canopys! A 9/10 proving ground experience.

Did you give out trophies at Clowder? Funtracks 1948 Tucker 423 wins most efficient. Check out the heat signature. No heat coming off of this cat means more fuel in the tank.

Default Re: 2020 Sno Cat Clowder ( FEBRUARY 1, 2020 )

as the mad catter at the clowder, I catch a fair amount of flak each year about various incidents at the clowder.

trespassing concerns
cold food
hot food
frozen food
cold air temps
Warm air temps

This year it was littering.

If you follow the event, Last years bread crumb trail was assigned to the sno cat crowd. You remember hansel and Gretel with the bread crumbs the sno cat crowd used track links and oil dots....

Not to be out done the sno cat crowd upped their game yet again with the trail markers..
Next year I hope they shit out turn tables. I will then be very close to a complete ( as johnny cash says it, 49,50,51,52 automobile.

evidence you ask........





as found by the grooming staff......

I say we shove it down in the snow and fertilize it. should be ready to harvest in may?

Was stated earlier, our Polaris boss was not charging its battery the last few K's off the trail. Today I got a new regulator installed in it so he's up and "feeling fine" again. Thanks to all who attended and posted photos.

generally we are shaping the final details of the summer workshop!!!!

in light of the personal divide of face diaper and non face diaper wearers I think we will forgo the summer GTG.

I think we should start a new thread and get the 21' recovery Clowder thread rocking.....

I will be there. and really hope the face diapers go away before then. the frozen condensation is making me uncomfortable right now and its 83+ humid and climbing......

Yes, do get one started sometime. Although I don't have any more photos from last year, maybe I'll repost thwe few I have. Bummer when you drop your camera in the snow.
