Don't make the directions good or thorough. Wolfie will get confused if you don't give shitty directions.

I've been down in your neck of the woods many times, Bowling, and I have friends in Mehnaga. I have no idea were Wolfie lives, but I'm going to guess she's going to drop into V town via 169, and that's what map quest is for.

I had so many landmarks scribbled down, it covered an entire page. All for two or three turns.

Rubi is very...thorough.

Ok Wolfie I put 5 gallons of fresh gas in it, and in 10 pulls it's up and running. If you don't have a trailer I will get the ramp from my side kick. Just let me know what's happening.

Stoked.

Could you possibly get me some measurements? I started evaluating trailers available to me, and I am pretty sure I misunderestimated the dimensions of sleds.

Overall length from ski tip to rear of the track?

Overall width

Width at the skis (outside of one ski to the outside edge of the other).

I will give you a jingle sometime this afternoon to work a few questions out.

The number I got was something like 113 inches long which equates to just under 9 and a half feet long.

My roto race trailer isn't going to hack that (boat trailer with an 8x4' plywood deck). Also, at 9 and a half feet long, the bro isn't going to be putting that in the back of his "nice" pickup, since he is an engineer, and scratches (and dirt and things that don't fit right kinda send him into a seething fit of disturbed). So I have a little calling around to do.

Put plywood on the bed of the pickup if he doesnt want scratches.

you can fit it on a 4x8 if it will carry the weight. nothing hurt if it hangs off the ends

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. When I put two longtracks and a shorttrack on my 2-place, there isn't even six feet of trailer for the shorttrack to sit on.

It's more a matter of having nothing left to tie it to, beings as it is a boat trailer, rigged into a hauler. I am pretty sure that trailer will eventually be set up as a sled rig too, pending my car is able to pull it without destroying itself. It is a time thing, not an impossibility thing.

I will admit that I really didn't think you'd fit all three sleds on that thing. I don't know that you'd have pulled it much further than was necessary? I was stoked that you managed it.
