alight I am a week out. my pre-flight checks are done. Leaving the upper Midwest midweek.

trailer has room. if you need something moved speak up soon.

taking the boring route south then east.....

I welcome and appreciate meeting forum members so thanks to the host for making the world just a little bit smaller.....

sounds like a small turn out so my guess will be with Mr North coast 9 and under grouping. I guess I will go 8.

Should I bring some snow along? I am sure there is a some in a shady spot somewhere...
with the smelt runs on full tilt maybe I should dip a net or two before we leave?

8 sounds like a pretty good guess, easy to grab a hitchhiker or drop a cat in the ditch to make that number work.
I-90 is way better with an ez-pass, I can mail one if you don’t have one.

That’s right people, you read it correctly, there might be a smelt fry going on! (Small delicious fish from the Great Lakes- I don’t think they run up the creeks all the way to the Rockies or Sierras, but I might be wrong)

Ear plugs will be available to campers, the peepers are out in full force

Northcoast is the winner of the Beanstalk mug giveaway with the guess of 9- pm your address and I’ll ship it out!

Cats outnumbered forum members 2:1

Two Tuckers, two LMC’s, a Thiokol, a Bombardier, a Redsqrwl, a Duffy, and me. A few non-members were also in attendance
All other details are super top secret

Damn, so close to a mug..... Next time.

I knew I should have got up a little earlier on snow cat shuffle day.... I would have had time to get up to Rome and took a look at the SV200/Isuzu cat.....
Bet I could have found a member there to help tip the scale in my favor.


Now if I only had an excuse to come back....


couple of my favorite photos.


the man, the myth, the legend!
Spring!
Meet Denny!
Hank the Tank!

These photos are a story tellers dream.

BTW, If you care to share your neighbors contact info, I would like to apologize to him for showing him the merits of wider driveways and a gate to keep wayward sqwrls out of his yard.

Oh and enjoy the YARD ART!

I like the yard art. It’s fun to look out the window and see more than one machine, and my wife doesn’t seem to mind having it around either. It can hang around for a while

Oh and as far as the neighbors driveway goes, it’s not often a guy pulling a 40’ trailer with two snowcats shows up at 1am on a pitch black night and has to back down the 12% grade 8’ wide driveway 700’ at the end of a day long trip and has to swing it out onto a barely two lane road. They were happy it wasn’t a stalker (or was it?), the couple tiny ruts don’t look bad in the daylight.

I feel really shitty, I generally don't just pull in, I swear the mail box number matched. Oh wait lets go with, the GPS said.....

It really isn’t bad. I offered to roll it flat and they said Oh gosh, don’t worry about it. They grew up farmers and don’t have kids yet. They are always out working on their property, looks like a golf course. It’s probably already fixed
