I'm pretty sure you will have a snowcat to operate. Note however, that I didn't say "I'm pretty sure you'll have a Tucker to operate"....

I received this in a PM. It's hilarious.

[Poontoon Princess Darth Vader steps out of her shuttle on the Shop Floor Death Star.]
Blackfoot Tucker Moff Jerjerrod: Welcome, Poontoon Princess Lord Vader. This is an unexpected pleasure. We are honored by your presence.
Poontoon Princess Darth Vader: You may dispense with the pleasantries, Commander. I am here to put you back on schedule.
Blackfoot Tucker Moff Jerjerrod: I assure you, Poontoon Princess Lord Vader, my men are working as fast they can.
Poontoon Princess Darth Vader: Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.
Blackfoot Tucker Moff Jerjerrod: I tell you that this snocat will be operational as planned.
Poontoon Princess Darth Vader: [stops and holds up her finger at Blackfoot Tucker Jerjerrod] The Wbuffetjr1 Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.
Blackfoot Tucker Moff Jerjerrod: But he asks the impossible! I need more men!
Poontoon Princess Darth Vader: Then perhaps you can tell him yourself when he arrives.
Blackfoot Tucker Moff Jerjerrod: [alarmed] Wbuffetjr1The Emperor's coming here? (Sun Valley)
Poontoon Princess Darth Vader: That is correct, Commander, and he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.
Blackfoot Tucker Moff Jerjerrod: We shall double our efforts.
Poontoon Princess Darth Vader: I hope so, Commander, for your sake. The Wbuffetjr1 Emperor is not as forgiving as I am. [resumes walking]

as you good folks make your reservations, could you take a moment and post a photo of the cat you plan to bring to SV, either a side view, prefer a 3/4 view of the front or if you choose, from the rear, that glam shot you love, your screen saver photo, really do not want to leave any one out,

if you are unable to bring your favorite machine and are forced to bring the ugly step snow cat, it is okay to post a photo of your favorite cat, even if it has never been seen on the snow by anyone but yourself and or you had a the great idea of rebuilding it and thought you could get it done a couple months, whatever the reason, post a photo and be part of the fun...

as always I am up to something and need a little help to make this happen, and No it is not a HAT!

thank you big time!

Frandee 37 will be there. No steering ski in this picture, but I will have it installed this year, since I overheated the brakes last year using them for 100% of the steering during the trip back down from the summit. Can hardly wait.

hey, hey, hey, PJL,

pretty sure you are feeling real left out, and wanting a good reason to come a gathering of old grousers at the snow cat serenade, sun valley, so, there will be a certification of back country rescue program, for LEO/ Sheriffs from Washington, west side of the Cascades, Puget sound area, so guess this will give you a good reason to come...

what ya say
