Did my eyes deceive me, or were the mini trucks and runners outnumbering the 80's?

Looked like fun, sorry to have missed it, but the new house is eating up weekends temporarily.

Nice observation. Now that you mention it, there was only one Land Cruiser. Many of us were not paying attention and calling Jeff's Lexus an 80. Marco had a 62. Everyone else had Runners, taco's or mini's.

Kinda funny, but I only took pictures at the parking lot, and then when Eric and the snow cat showed up.


Not so vain self-portrait...


The 'cat




And the 'cat caravan





Wheelin in the snow with one of them new-fangled electronic trucks (I unplugged my ABS/TRAC wires so I could really get the RPM's up, and generated about 6 extra dummy lights.)

Technically there were three...

Rover left his at the parking lot, Farnham had his 100, and then me in the LX. Farnham and Brent turned around early when they found out that Vail Pass was already closed East bound figuring they better try to get back before they closed it West bound as well. Jacket (and maybe others at the rear) followed them out with the snowcat. Considering how long it was taking to get the whale out I don't blame them for heading back. I felt bad for slowing things up so badly but not much I could do at that point

I was wondering if a 40 would "float" better than an 80 just given the weight difference. Maybe next year I'll try the 40

What UB said

The dang winch was possessed. The second we hit the line in or line out control the winch would start winding in the rope and it would NOT shut off until power was completely disconnected. Add to that the fact that after the first use that morning my rope pulled out of the connector on the drum and it was over. I went from being helpful and somewhat self supporting to a liability in short order

Time for a rebuild I guess
