So work got canceled on Thursday. And I'm sorry, but I couldn't resist the temptation to go do a little pre-run recon in the fresh snow.

Got a couple pictures.






Most of the way was nice with good traction in the fresh snow. But there were a few slick spots that were total ice. One in particular coming up to the big meadow. But with a little finagling I made it up ok. I didn't go past the big meadow. But somebody had already gone further up the trail early that morning.

Anyways, looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.
See you guys tomorrow.

Looks good Travis. Thanks for the update.

I70 will be backed up pretty good Sat. morning. I suggest going up the canyon on HWY 6.

Beau Jo's called me today and said they had a administration problem with their liqueur license and may not be able to serve alcohol tomorrow. Too late it change the location though. They will supply free pitchers of soda's and tea.

I have my 4runner put back together and ready to roll. Installed new body mount bushings to replace my worn out ones and a 1\2 lift as an after thought.

The JadeRunner has been in the garage pretty much since hunting season so it's ready to get out.

I will be late. I coach kids basketball and we have a game tomorrow morning. I'll call in on 2M as I get close.

Any steering linkage issues with the .5" BL Scott? I had to add a steering spacer after doing the 1".

Thanks for the pre-run, Travis. Very stoked about this. I'll see you guys at the cemetery around 9:00.

Avoid I-70 this morning. Just got these CDOT alerts on my phone.

Heavy traffic is developing westbound I-70 from C-470 to US 40 Empire Jct.

Info: 511, cotrip.org or CDOT mobile app

Heavy traffic continues westbound I-70 Genesee to US 40 Empire Jct. Current travel time 45+ minutes.
