Default McCallin' All Cats 2018 Event Schedule , now for 2019!

Looks like there may be a lot more Snow Cat Adventures next year so it's probably best to start planning way early. So... McCallin' All Cats 2019 is a go for Monday February 18 thru Thursday February 21. There are secret talks
(well, not secret anymore) of a possible Forrest Service approved extra Friday day trip out to Burgdorf Hot Springs
for even the Big Cats.

Default McCallin' Beer Report

The North Fork Lager barely made it out of the Jug Mountain lunch and was almost gone before the dinner. After Wellington there was a gallon left of the Angry Orchard Cider and 1/2 a gallon of the Lemon Ginger Hefeweizen. The marketing rep for the beer distributor said the lager was VERY close in taste and build to guess what? Coors Banquet Lager. Maybe next time we'll bring it all in from good ol' Golden, Colorado.

Default Looking forward to 2019

Well, my Spring Break in California will be over soon then back to the snowy Idaho mountains. Just a little more than a year to get ready for McCallin’ All Cats 2019. Bigger and better than ever with a slightly different all inclusive event package covering most everything but the lodging. Hope to make it for rich and less rich, cat equipped and cat deprived and for the young, the old and to include most of us- the ageless. Monday February 18 to Thursday February 21, 2019.

hey Steve, mr vintage bike,

how about using a young artist's work as the poster for next years McCall gathering poster?

maybe even open it up to all young sno-cat artist and have them submit a drawing and select one to be the poster?

There is more attention to detail in that cab forward artwork than many actual restorations.
Awesome!! Notice the stacks, suicide doors, and probably the growser count....but I can't count that high

I had thought to go outside of the Tucker world for the 2019 poster so here is a start. Seeing those little Swedish bugs bounding over the fresh powder at Wellington/Tripod Meadows was fantastic.

when we got going about 15 mph and hit a bump our front went under and we seemed to drive under it . our cooling air intake and wipers were tested good.
video was made but we haven't got it yet.

Just curious. Was there some sort of restrictions by the Forest Service on snow cat size at the McCall event?

cough cough this doesn't happen in Colorado I guess you could say we are alittle more laid back. Snowcats can go anywhere a snowmobile can go in CO."Trails we don't need no stinking trails where we are going.

Default McCallin' All Cats 2018 moving to 2019 soon

Soon will be shifting over to a new McCallin' All Cats 2019 thread. But till then i have been thinking of having maybe one or two of the evenings next year devoted to pro lead "how-to" sessions at the newly heated McCall shop for things like mig and tig tips, water vapor blasting, track maintiance and other 'giving your cat nine more lives' advice. More ideas?
