We had a good time, weather was good. Snow was pretty bad. We had 5 two track machines and all moved under their own power. 2 of the Snow Tracs are returning to the snow after long periods of dormancy. The red one still needs some sorting out though.

Pyramid Sno-Park on the 70 road. We also took our local USFS guy with us. It's good to be friendly with those guys.

We also had a newcomer. It was supposed to go to McCall for the unveiling but since McCall is off it showed up here. Pics for your viewing pleasure.

Here's a link to the thread on that auction:

That went for a lot of money. I hope the winning bidder is happy with his purchase...

He is, he has 2 of them now. It only needed minor work. The usual fuel issues from a long dormant rig. During the run it cooked a brand new Optima battery. Generator was overcharging. That's an easy fix. The seats are now recovered too.

Put skis on your plane and land it in the meadow.
