    Default NSW Snow Run 2011



    Went up to my cabin today, and we tried to go snow wheeling! But the dang snow is to deep. We did play a bit, and spent a lot of time yanking rigs out, but it was a good day!

    I went up Fri night, to get the cabin warmed up and make a pot of chili. On the way out to the road, to put the sign up for the rest of the guys, I went to fast around the corner.





    Master Pull 'super yanker' in action! Put the XJ in nuetral, and 2 yanks it was out.

    Cabin was nice and serene Fri:



    Guys got up there around 9:30



    Then we played:

    I spent a lot of time hooking up straps, so didn't get a lot of pics. Hopefully the rest of the guys will post some, and I'll get them up here.

    It was a blast, even though we didn't get down the trail far. The trail is over 1 1/2 miles. 2 yers ago, 4 of us made it close to 1 mile in, but due to time constraints, had to turn around.

    If the snow would have packed, we could have gone more, but it stayed like little crystals, nice and fluffy.

    The last pic in the first post is a Video. and some more from 'wannajeep'


    Me getting stuck: (video-click the pic)




    99taco spinning snow (yeah, I know. But he's young, and thinks Toyotas are great. He'll grow up!)


    Fix23 before I yanked him backwards. Yup, the snow is deep! And being -10*F last night didn't help. It warmed up to 5* today.


    Me pulling Fix23 out. Nothing but ice for traction! (video-click the pic)

    Yeah, I think some 44's and a HEMI are in order!! I've driven through deeper snow, but as you northern guys know, the snow changes, especially with the temp.

    Didn't help that we got a whole lot of rain in Dec, and that the snow fell before the ground froze this year. Makes the bottom few inches all ice.

    Had it been warmer, the snow would pack some, making the wide tires somewhat decent. Oh well, got the Ice Races next month!

    If the snow is too deep, we use the course that the motorcycle ice racing guys keep plowed all year.
