Snow in the Midwest has been less than spectacular this year. Even up in the UP.. Here all we have is semi frozen mud..

We're finally getting lots of lake enhanced snow now. It's been snowing steady for the last 30 hours and no sign of letting up.

Great photos for sure. I need to up my camera game a bit.

This photo surfaced and tells my story of the clowder 2017.

In my fleet this machine was purchased as insurance to support another cat. Here in the midwest we call them *parts cats* and we store them outside behind barns.
with that said; the rule of hoarding generally dictate that attempts-to-run must be applied to parts vehicles to truly assess the condition. ( you would not want junk just sitting behind the barn)

well this machine was purchase non-running and was winched onto the trailer at elevation, (by a flat lander) and upon its return to the oxygen enriched midwest, was going to be pulled off the trailer, until Mrs. Sqwrl encouraged me to "at least try to start it!" Why Yes, it was driven off the trailer and all around the compound.
fast forward a few years and a donor engine from CL (they run better with four pistons going up and down) and some newish trelleborg T522 tires and some home created heat boxes and a bit of blood

My son applied some of his Knack for all things mechanical, he recreated axles, straightened Trucks/walking beams, mounted tires, adjusted, replaced Greased, Swore, and cleaned, Wired and wrenched his way to a fully functioning ST-4

there are snow boards, Bikes, cooking and lawn furniture loaded on this beast. it performed as new.
Having served its duty in the minor leagues, it is now being called up to the big leagues.

Machines need to earn a living at the compound, and this Machine will now be signed into Ice house detail on lake Winnebago.

Again thanks to the photo bugs and cameras. its hard to acknowledge the behind the scenes stories with out evidence.

snow trac fought gravity and won. Fat bikers were able to capitalize on the gravity of the situation.

I'm pretty sure if that was the case,you would have a "LOT" of snocats following you back home!! what to do with all of those "OFF" brands !!! I guess thats why i have the 160 MPH speedometer in my torpedo ! might have to find high gear,i know in 2nd it keeps up with regular 4 track tuckers.

It took 4 hours and 15 computer reboots to get 45 seconds of video. The new computer can't get here soon enough. It was nearly impossible to sync the two clips so I had to go with what I had. Hope to get more in another couple of weeks.
