The local snowmobile club had its annual family playday on Mt Baker yesterday. With all the gear to haul, it sure was nice for Mr. Prez to bring out his Thiokol and make light work of it all. It hadn't been out since Timberline and purred like a kitten. The rear deck also doubled as a cooking platform for the large grill. Hope to see it at the jamboree!

I have done the same for our club but my insurance got dropped and haven't found any yet that is good. so it looks like they may be using other means this year.

I didn't have much trouble on that trip. I did speed up when they started catching up to the tracks. I could have set a speed record for me that day.
one heaver load on a very steep incline we put a snowmobile on the back and put it in reverse. that one had a large bbq on skis and toboggans.

25 days till Leavenworth jamboree.

Good Evening Everyone,

My name is Frederique. I am in NE Iowa. I am new to this forum. You probably heard this story often but I had the Matchbox Snow Trac as a kid and that started a fascination with SnowCats in General. The Jamboree sounds like it could be a fun event to attend and meet folks with the same interest. Sadly not yet an owner but hoping to change that in the near future!
I wanted to see if some of you could tell me more about the event, will it be worth attending for a non owner? Places to stay etc.
I thank you all in advance for your input.

Cheers.

Frederique B.

YES YES YES, come out to a Jamboree, one, two, or take in all three, you will meet great people, see a wide variety of machines, including the toy snow-tracs, more than one person will be happy to have you ride along (quite sure they tell how wonderful their sno-cat is, and why you should buy one just like it ), and the stories, alone, would make the trip to Jamboree, well worth you coming ............

clowder - michigan, first weekend in february

leavenworth - washington, third weekend in february

timberline - mt hood, oregon, first weekend in may

Unfortunately, I believe you are correct Cidertom. Only pics that I have seen too. I suspect that guy still owes you and your wife a nice dinner or two.

Welcome to the addiction Frederique. The Leavenworth WA Jamboree is Feb 18-21. Thurs and Fri the machines will be at the motor inn and many lies are told among the owners and those interested. Saturday is the running of the cats and you can use the first lie telling days to find a place in a cat if you want to see them in their natural habitat. Here is the contact info for the inn: http://www.derritterhof.com/ Be sure to tell them that you are with the snowcat jamboree for a discounted price. If they are full there are many nice places to stay in Leavenworth.

Y'all should have plenty of snow. There is presently about 3' in 11worth, and although we are headed for a warm/wet stretch this week it's not going to melt all this snow in 3 weeks.

I know that this should go on "for sale" thread, but this is not something I want to ship so I am seeing if anyone coming to 11worth is interested. It came with my cat but I took it off because I never used it and it got in way of snow removal. New version is here:

Don't be alarmed at price for new one, version I have is older and is not remote control. I'm thinking around $125. If anybody is interested PM me for details.

plans are coming together to bring the timberline tucker to 11worth, first outing, looking like the jamboree is coming together nicely with lots and lots of sno cats,

Flying to Seattle on Thursday. How long of a drive to 11worth and is a 4x4 a must to get there or a regular rental would do?

I was thinking getting there on Friday morning. Any input would be appreciated.

Depending which route you choose, the distance is approximately 2.5 hrs driving from SeaTac airport to Leavenworth. My guess would be that 4x4 will not be necessary, but you never know what curve balls mother nature has in store. If it were me, I'd reserve a 2wd. Just my opinion though. You can always check pass conditions when you arrive and adjust as necessary.
