Well I have given in to the sno-cat bug and my wife has finally got tired of hearing about it and gave the OK!! I have driven up to Ontario to pick up my new cat (new to me). It is a 1979 Tucker 2742. I am hoping the wide tracks will get me through the deep snow up to the cabin. I took a couple of photos of it today. I plan to pick it up in the morning and take the tracks off to get it under width to haul home. I am sure that there will be many more adventure to come but the first one is to get it loaded and back home!!
