I'm going to take that as opening the door to possibilities. I know the new Pro-RMK gets you wet in the panties, you can admit it.

At least his sled got him home. More than say for the ol' Dragon needing to be towed one day.

You're memory is shot. Daryl never fixed a single steering issue and the M has always made it home under its own power in the UP.

Right, you never bent a steering link on any of your sleds before....

Daryl never supplied you with anything to help you fix any of your might M's?


Side note: you burn through a sled about every other year....

From looking at that pic, I can't argue.

No Cody I haven't messed with it.

Stealth you should of been there to represent.

AC has never left me stranded. I even got fair warning when my stator went out.

Creepy Yooper made a new steering link from solid steel around 9pm after original bent like tinfoil when grabbing a ski to remove from a stuck.

From my perspective, with no real photos...I'll go for some highlights because I drank too much to remember every detail like I normally wish I didn't. Success!

I tried to get Wednesday off, but was told "definitely, you have to work on Wednesday." That sucked. I spent all of Wednesday night after work frantically trying to get my shit ready. That involved going to a last minute Birthday gathering right after work, and having a wicked arthritis attack that made it about impossible to move my arms.

I got 1/4 blitzed to manage pain and feebly packed my gear up until 4am. I decided that the skis could wait, and conked out till 7:30 Thursday morning. Then came the issue that I had no sweet assed lift system to get my sled on the trailer. Not only did I have no lift, there are no snowbanks here to use as ramps. Dammit all to hell.

I retrieved a Keebler elf to assist, and we both spent the next half hour cussing at the Wolfsled a lot. I had no studs, so driving onto the wooden trailer with it unhooked from the car didn't work either. Somehow we eventually did get the little bastard loaded. We threw it on the car, and the Keebler elf abandoned my efforts, and left to go to work.

Somehow, with more help, the Wolfsled got niggertied down onto my sweet little trailer that is not designed to haul sleds. Then I drove for 4.5 or 5 hours in freezing fog. Sled did not come off the trailer. Then I drove 4 or 5 more hours.

When Willie says "Right behind you." He really means, "I'm 2 or 3 hours behind you."

Yes, I fit in my gearbag.

Thankyou Berans and whoever else (stagsex and Rock?) helped drag my sled off the back of my trailer. I'll get a better trailer sometime.

We brought way the hell too much food.

I am very grateful to Mud, Rubi, and Gerbil (and sorta Powersledder too) for letting me have the princess suite all to myself. I was a little creeped out by the waterproof bedding. Not sure what that was all about

I was not motivated to do any wrenching that night, and am sorry I clocked out so early on the Nutz that all showed up to BS.

Gas station in Rockland doesn't open till 10:30. That means the workers show up at 10:29, so you have NO chance of getting gas before then unless you want to ride to Mass.

***How could I forget my sweet first stuck of the day?***

Mud and I finally got fueled up, and I followed him (without thinking) up over a nice snow berm into the yard. Except Mud pinched it a little bit and things got a little sketchy. Unfortunately, I was already committed to the line, but hesitated at the top of the "hill" since I was tipping over. Once things had settled down the next split second later, I pinched it, and accomplished my first stuck of the trip! I'm pretty sure Rock pointed and laughed, which was actually funny as hell. He also unstucked me. Thanks dude

There were a shitload of sleds to be had on Friday, so we decided to hit up Harry's carving field and then Oak Bluff. I was extra glad for that because I hadn't tried out any of my mods. The riser made it way easier to carve, and way harder to steer on the trail. It may get switched out for a 2" but we'll see.

Rock's son had some steering post carnage. Willie may or may not have held his own in a drag race against Mud and Cuzzi on his vintage screamer while playing air guitar the whole first heat.

TBC maybe.
Continued...

So...we killed the shit out of that carving field almost, then headed towards Oak Bluff. This included a quick stop at the quarry where some cool people did some climbs. I got bored and went on to the next half of it that has the smaller hill. In a sweet carving attempt, I managed to launch myself over the bars and tip my sled on it's side to Willie's entertainment. He giggled like a little fool (he is not a very large air-guitaring fool, BTW!) when he helped my shit back upright.

**Edit**

Holy shit I forgot Jay and Beran's kickass stucks in the Rock quarry!

Jay took his gigantic piece of shit skidon't (even though he was prettymuch the only one that didn't break down or encounter any real carnage) up around a clump of trees...at least that's what his plan was except he either fell off or trenched the shit out of the entire world, because he didn't make it. That was a 15-20 minute stuck (can't exactly remember). I think Speedball Willie helped his ass out some. Right as we were getting ready to leave, Beran tried the same line Jay did, and got halfways launched off his sled. He bailed, and his sweet Fusion nosedived for that small clump of trees like a starving woodpecker. I think the only damage was plastic scratches, and that stuck didn't last as long thanks to the efforts of DCUBA and the pre-made trail that Jay created to get his braaper out through the trees.

We did some Oak Bluffing, which was fun because I knew exactly what to expect. If you take that "easy ditch line" you'll get bucked the fuck off your mount multiple times, laughed at, and helped out of three stucks before you summit that almighty thing they call the "Oh'Buff" (that's what it sounds like when you're halfway shitfaced during the planning session the night before).

Rock's son-in-law got stuck just in front of me on the way up. I think I yanked a ski for a while, whilst Gerbil stucked himself beside, and slightly behind the Wolfsled. I figured I was fucked, but with the coaching of IBS and Gerbil (and some help yanking on my skis) I drove right through Jerry's filled in trench and owned the shit out of that stupid hill that kicked my ass the previous two years. It had a lot to do with the fact that the snow happened to be the consistency of mashed potatoes. I'm quite sure of the previous fact.

After some mild hill raging and food eating on Oak Bluff, we continued on to some trails and logging roads. Some dingus (specifically, the assmin) told Gerbil to lead the way up an unknown line/trail/something-from-hell, and he gung-hoe-ed-ly braaped up. Little Beran followed him, and I took the liberty of 3rd in line up the trail. I will name this not-actually-a-trail-trail the log-step-up-trail-from-hell-trail. I'm sure Gerbs was in heaven. Little Beran was also seeming to kick all those log's asses. For myself and the Wolfsled, conditions rapidly declined to survival mode, and I'm honestly not sure how the rest of the group made it up!

At a couple points, I knew that there was no going back down the way we came up. Especially when a sweet jump-able log across the trail resulted in a 6' straight drop under my skis! Had I not had Madcow's sweet clutching setup in the Wolfsled (Meaning I panic pinched the shit out of the rest of those log-jumps), I probably would've stuffed myself into a wicked vertical stuck, gone over the bars, broken my right collarbone, and fucked the rest of the day up in a big bad ugly way.

Somehow, everyone reached the top in one piece, and the Gerbil proudly proclaimed that he was going to lead us back to the trail, since none of the shorty sleds were going to make it back down that weird inclined log covered trail from hell.

Beings as the Gerbil is a legit DCUBA member, I believed him, and followed much in the fashion of an innocent little lamb, right behind little Beran...

It was prolly the last time I ever follow that fucker when there are trees involved.

TBC again.

As always Wolfie, an informmable, but yet entertaining read. Great choice of words about the starving Wood pecker (now that's funny) You ride well Wolfie, and after watching how well you stayed in control of your sled after you bounced it off a huge boulder was VERY impressive.

She used to send me Cliff Notes versions or include them in the thread. I miss those days because I never get to read her books. I think they actually were funnier than the full length features.
