The snow that is.... It's just starting to get good. :thumb:

I will post pics of the 64 out and about.

I would rather be out playing in it than watching it pile up outside...

Snow/pizza run should be fun this year with 20+ inches of new snow!

My daughter took the 80 to fairplay on Monday so no fun in the snow for me:(

I just got home from Golden. Wow, that's some snow. I took the 60 today and left the SAAB home. Usually I'm not a big fan of 4wd on paved surfaces but today was totally different. Lot's of cars were stuck on the hills and blocking traffic. What a mess. I was itching to stop and strap a few up the hill but there was just too much traffic. Too risky, I left it to the pros.

I didn't realize I was out of oil for snowblower mix and then I forgot to take my camera with me to HD and the gas station. He's my poser driveway shot :rolleyes:

We're not getting squat here in Vail. Only a few inches on the ground.

I was out with the GMC. Roads were not that bad. Only got stuck once because I gassed it on purpose and swung the ass end into the ditch. Nothing a shovel couldn't fix. I pulled a few people out and saw two people walking with gas cans. I couldn't figure that one out, almost seemed like a trap so I kept going.

What's it like Thursday morning Farnham? I'm trying to drive back to Denver from Flagstaff,AZ. I'd consider going your way. How is Vail pass?

Was out chuggin' in the diesel last night, holy cow it's drifted today!!! :D

4' plus around work, came in to check everything out...only one here :D

I got up around 10:00 and headed out. The first shot is the driveway with the GMC in the background. I was out driving Kevin last night so the snow would have been deeper on it.

So much fun with chains! I ended up over by Steve's place so we went out for a bit. Thank you for the hospitality:)

The best I could do is a ditch over in Golden by the Coors plant. I didn't hit it too hard and stopped only to take a pic:D Drove right out of it.

timing couldn't have been better, I rolled up the alley just as Steve opened the garage door :)

12-21-2006, 04:47 PM
You were in my neck of the woods! I live pretty close to Steve apparently. I've seen him around in his 62. He's over by Sloans and I'm in Potter Hghlnds. :) Cool pics.

Last night coming home I passed a bunch of people going slow, and this is when you couldn't see lines on the road. I even did 60 a couple times on C-470! :eek: The Suburban is heavy enough and I was impressed with the new tires to keep me going straight! Brahma was the only thing that could move first thing this morning, then we got the tractor out and put its chains on :D and then we had two moving vehicles. Next came the Suburban and the Taco, even the red truck got out under its own power! But then I got stuck in some snow drifts on the way to the new barn, had to dig myself out, and then got stuck in a ditch up the road and had to get pulled out by the tractor. I'm not tall enough :( I keep getting high-centered

the alleys are great over by you because no one has plowed them. I am at 38th and Wads.

I uploaded my pics to the gallery

Wow. Chains and 37's looks like a winning combo. We only picked up a couple inches here. Not even enough to cover the chunky snow undernearth. Dust on Crust skiing in Vail. Mother nature sure is funny. Just let me know when you want help clearing out that backyard.

Weather service is calling for an excess of 12 inches.

Bring it awn :thumb:

Is all this snow going to affect the S/P run? Like not being able to get very far?

12-27-2006, 11:30 PM
Bring it on! :D

Matt, you're scaring me! The main element of a snow run is SNOW! Woo Hooooooo....bring it! :rolleyes: :hill: :thumb: :flop:

You guys should do good. You dont have to worry about strapping me up all the hills:hill: :flop:

Yoder scared me! When my roomie and I went up there (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/showthread.php?t=2336) Scott wondered how far we got, and I got the feeling that if people don't normally run up there to keep it packed down it can get snowed in! But bring it on! I need to, um, hone my technique :D Anybody want to ride shotgun? I've got a seat in the 40.

But we'll have multiple 80s, Treeroot on 37s with chains, and a buddy of CJ7 Matt (who is also named Matt Miller, how creepy is that?) is going to bring his built Jeepster which sits on 37 IROKs :eek: , so we should have plenty of snowbashers! Is Spiderlegs going to come on this one?
