Almost ready to head out, one day left to fix stuff. Had a crisis today, my truck had an issue, I was ready to call and cancel, but was able to find the problem and fix it. Should be good to go now. Cats are loaded and fueled up, ready to crush some Oregon snow flakes!!!!

I counted 9 cats

Well day one is behind us now, what a GREAT adventure it was. Here are a few pictures. As many of you remember from last year I put together the damage report, this will be forthcoming for this year after the jamboree, and it should be a good one.

Up on top of Mt Howard. What a great day for me, last year the conditions were not good for the Frandee and I had to park it about a mile below and catch a ride in a Tucker, it was a humbling day. But this year she made it!!!!
I estimate with all the running around we drove around 15 miles today, and I do not know how many thousands of feet in elevation we climbed, but it was several. Some of the trail was very steep with tight S turns. Sorry no pictures of that, was busy just driving at that time.

If you remember last year, the kitten broke down when two welds sheared on the left side pontoon drive hub and it had to be towed out. This year that little cat went further than any, as it was just going everywhere.
BTW, happy 24th birthday to my son, the driver of the Kitten.IMG_20220115_130644199.jpgIMG_20220115_130744175.jpgIMG_20220115_130502984.jpg

Most important questions. How did the ‘ For Sale’ Kristi do? More info on iit please. Might need another one. 🙀🤡🤪
he killed it and embarrassed the tuckers, great machine and truly under appreciated and even more, under valued, good machine.

what is really great about these gatherings, getting to see these machines in action and thusly, dispels falsehoods, rumors and outright lies about many of these snow cats, Kristis are very capable machines and can give a snow trac, a run for its money, and keeps up nicely with any and all snow cats, matter of fact, the Kristi led the pack with no problem, king of the snow.

for folks, that has never attended a jamboree, like Joesph, the greatest 10 cat jubilee gathering, get your act together and come, join in, bring your cat and be ready to use it.

What a great turnout and a great group of people! I really enjoyed joining along on Saturday in my AstroSpryte! What other events are coming up in the next few months that should be attended?

the Clowder in upper Michigan is up next, 3 days of catting about, pretty dang sure you would fit right in and have a grand time,

next up is the NH tracked vehicle show in Thornton NH, I day, jammed packed adventure, every kind of over the snow rig is there, a can't miss event if you live snow cat

then back out west in early March is the Colorado jamboree, Vail pass area, nothing been posted yet, they always get all the locals to come out, 30 plus machines

last known one, is in central Idaho, 4 days of catting. mid march
