Default Decent snow last night.

Since the meltdown we got quite a bit of rain. Snow rolled through sunday night and it's still snowing here. I drove to work this morning trying to see in the dark how much snow was in the fields, I didn't think there was more than 5" and the ditches are dark like water is still in there. I checked weather.com and they say my town got 7" snow last night. I sure hope their right but I don't think so. I guess on my way home I'll get to see how much snow there really is. Should there really be 7" on the ground, I'll be sledding tonight. We're suppose to get another 2" yet today as well.
Get your sleds fixed ibs we'll be riding this weekend!!:p:p

Here's hoping!

I think I have ZRX convinced about the snow by you, showed him some JohnDee maps, etc. He's kind of excited. We'll all have to get together in Feb.

This weekend may be a stretch. I need a new o-ring for the water pump, I tore it taking it off. Then the XCR can be put back together (tomorrow). Too bad I don't have any carbides. I'll call around tomorrow to see who has those.

The XLT needs a new trailing arm mount... Which you just might have ol' buddy ol' pal? I tried taking it off tonight but the way the rivets are I can't get to them with a drill. I need an air chisel, die grinder, or angle grinder to get it off. Tomorrow, again.

Looks like the only thing holding me back from coming up there is frigid air (-1? WTF?) and all my sleds are busted and in pieces, lol. Actually I should be mostly there tomorrow. Pop-riveting a trailing arm mount, and then pop-riveting the belly back up is no biggie when it's on a trailer.

^^We'll have plenty of snow by the time zrx is here. Again he's more than welcome to use the rxl, we'll get some killer riding in!!

Yeah I've got the mount you need but it's still connected to a tunnel. Plus the bolt is broken off, you'd still have to deal with taking it out lol. One side is broke and one isn't, I just don't remember which is and isn't.

According to johndees 5-10 day forcast we'll have no snow shortage lol.

Wait, the mount you have is in the same condition as the one I have? AHHHH! I need the left side one while sitting on the sled, the PTO side.

I'll check tonight and see which is broke. I really have no clue. I bought the tunnel because it has all wiring and cooling in place, just incase I wrecked mine I could swap everything over.

Too bad its so damn far from here. Looks like 6-7 hrs as the crow flies but theres a very large body of water in the way. Looked into the ferry from the west side but its not running this time of year. Maybe get a day or two off and rent or whatever. The offer of your Rxl is very white of you. I just might take you up on it.
If you guys want to do this I could help with hotel. Our motorhome is setup next to my garage and heat works, saves on hotel/motel rates anyways. If you can handle the 70s decorating of the motorhome lol.

The only thing that causes hesitation for me is having to go through Chicago. Man I HATE that city......no offense IBS.
Ah, fuck it, I have an XCR! I could just skip it across Lake Michigan and make my own video!!
When is this happening?

Dunno yet lol. We'll be in the up until the 6th so it'll be sometime after that. I guess it'll depend on when zrx will be here. We should have good snow until at least march.

No offense taken. I hate that shit too. Lemme know when you wanna go and I'll give you some other ways around the city. They just opened the 355 extension down to 80, it's a superhighway that's 5 lanes of EMPTY. I can make you get AROUND the city instead of through it and save you a ton of time. Skipping does seem like a good time, except they don't have any "refuel on the go" boats out there so I wish you luck!

We were talking about a mini-ride with Mojuice, bulldog, etc. in the group rides section over by Gotmud. He still wants to ride a sled to a strip club, lifelong dream of his. Ambitious huh?
