I don't mind the reference to vintage sno-cats, but vintage operators? Your day will come.

The local snowmobile club had its annual family playday on Mt Baker yesterday. With all the gear to haul, it sure was nice for Mr. Prez to bring out his Thiokol and make light work of it all. It hadn't been out since Timberline and purred like a kitten. The rear deck also doubled as a cooking platform for the large grill. Hope to see it at the jamboree!

I have done the same for our club but my insurance got dropped and haven't found any yet that is good. so it looks like they may be using other means this year.

How do you keep those sleds from trying to pass you on that 12% downhill?

I didn't have much trouble on that trip. I did speed up when they started catching up to the tracks. I could have set a speed record for me that day.
one heaver load on a very steep incline we put a snowmobile on the back and put it in reverse. that one had a large bbq on skis and toboggans.

25 days till Leavenworth jamboree.

Please excuse a few of the photos in this they won't mean anything to anyone but myself. I made the video for my wife.
If you like it you might enjoy making the trip to Leavenworth WA the weekend of Feb 19th.

Good Evening Everyone,

My name is Frederique. I am in NE Iowa. I am new to this forum. You probably heard this story often but I had the Matchbox Snow Trac as a kid and that started a fascination with SnowCats in General. The Jamboree sounds like it could be a fun event to attend and meet folks with the same interest. Sadly not yet an owner but hoping to change that in the near future!
I wanted to see if some of you could tell me more about the event, will it be worth attending for a non owner? Places to stay etc.
I thank you all in advance for your input.

Cheers.

Frederique B.

YES YES YES, come out to a Jamboree, one, two, or take in all three, you will meet great people, see a wide variety of machines, including the toy snow-tracs, more than one person will be happy to have you ride along (quite sure they tell how wonderful their sno-cat is, and why you should buy one just like it ), and the stories, alone, would make the trip to Jamboree, well worth you coming ............

clowder - michigan, first weekend in february

leavenworth - washington, third weekend in february

timberline - mt hood, oregon, first weekend in may

Unfortunately, I believe you are correct Cidertom. Only pics that I have seen too. I suspect that guy still owes you and your wife a nice dinner or two.

Welcome to the addiction Frederique. The Leavenworth WA Jamboree is Feb 18-21. Thurs and Fri the machines will be at the motor inn and many lies are told among the owners and those interested. Saturday is the running of the cats and you can use the first lie telling days to find a place in a cat if you want to see them in their natural habitat. Here is the contact info for the inn: http://www.derritterhof.com/ Be sure to tell them that you are with the snowcat jamboree for a discounted price. If they are full there are many nice places to stay in Leavenworth.
