    If I am free when you head out I will run down for sure. Can you find one of those sheets of UHMW to drag it out on? I should be able to bring a couple guys with me.

    I will let you know when and see if your available. I am looking for one of those sled recovery skins. Haven't found them yet but have a while since it is going to storm for quite a while.

    You can say that. Wished I had brought a few extra pair of goggles. Never knew if you were going to be going down or up!!!!

    It would be nice to keep one in the trailer for emergencies.

    Well just a little over a year ago my sled went down, Today it is rebuilt and ready to ride. Just wished we had the same amount of snow as this time last year.

    yes the towbuddy is a pretty simple but amazing thing. Works great and easy on the towing sled. Will be tossing it behind the seat of the truck if and when we get any snow.

    When do you leave and when do you get back. Paxman and I know several people who can ride that area very well and are good at rescuing sleds who are local.
    When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.

    Kindness is like snow - it beautifies everything it covers.

    Don't worry Dan never forget it. Sometimes pretend like I don't know how to use it but never forget it.
