Default Ho Ho Ho a Tuckering we go!

First outing in the cat today in our local parade. It was a huge hit and so much fun. Next time we will look for a bit more snow.
Let me try those pictures again...

Itís that time of year again. Iíve brought something to this parade for at least the last 10 years in a row. Brought the Snow Trac twice, a 46 Studebaker truck a few times, a 62 4x4 international pick up a couple times, a VW bus one year and the Tucker last year.
Itís a short and sweet parade about 6 blocks long through down town Hood River this Friday followed by the tree lighting ceremony. Itís a perfect venue for a rubber block tracked super kitten.
Looks like weíll have crisp, cold but clear weather for it.
Just throwing this out there in case anyone has the fever like I do...

Well I canít help myself when it comes to the local Christmas parade. Itís 6 blocks of small town stoke. This marks our 10th year of doing it, 4th year in a cat (2 years in the snow trac and 2 in the Tucker.) This year there was even a model T snow cat from WAAAM they brought down.
It was so much fun and certainly the only time you can get away with driving the sno cat downtown. I drop the Tucker off at the starting point and then have the trailer ready at the other end of the parade. I know Iím bias but I think we had the best float there. Lol!
Winter is here folks and Iím ready to have some fun with my fellow catters.

I did suggest bringing the Super kitten in an earlier post. The crowd would have gone nuts! I'll remind the mafia again next year. Maybe we can follow it up with a Saturday outing if we have snow.

Well I know it's not good for it so I keep it short and slow. We are crawling along in 1st gear. I would not do it if my tracks still had the slightly angled grouser like they came new, but mine are worn flat so I think damage at this point is very minimal.
I guess I figure once a year for 6 blocks is worth the risk.

Actually we had a great time with the snow trac the year we wrangled up a herd of lighted reindeer to lead the way.
They make great parade vehicles.
