yea,my first year I just hauled food and diesel for a LMC 1800. Not must fun just running back a forth. The LMC lost electrics.

the two snowmobilers were got out at 1pm after spending one night freezing in a snow cave during a bad snow blizzard. it took a pb200 groomer to plow through the drifts and steep mountain hills to get to them.
sheriff may not approve of what your asking.

I have a tin can with 500' of kite string and two indian drums for if the string goes down I can climb to the top of the ridge and start pounding.

i'll have to bring my marine vhf handheld to talk to you. I know you use one.

Not sure if I remember any drum signals. maybe we could use the lights?

Too bad the EPA now forbids native American smoke signals.

yesterday
I think/hope we finished putting in donated kenwood 100watt radios in snow equipment . 3 cats,2 pickups,2 plows. the last one was 50 mile away.
this is for the snowmobile snow clubs contracted groomers for emergency use.
