I didn't see this before or I would have brought and given you a reader last night. Most newer laptops have an SD reader and nearly all newer desktops do too. I have a couple readers that have not been used is a couple years. They are very cheap to buy and you can get them nearly anywhere.

Finally here's some pictures:
1. Road as I was driving up Clear Creek - was anticipating a cold day!
2. But it cleared up pretty fast
3. Aired down and ready to go
4. Road up to Guanella.
5. End of the road at Silver Dollar Lake Turnoff.

1. Another shot - looking better all the time!
2. Yep - Road is Closed.
3. Gettin' stuck on Argentine (didn't even get to the first switchback)
4. Yep
5. Saxon Road - this is my first stuck, nice little snowdrift. This would have been brutal except for the sugar snow didn't consolidate like last spring.

1. Another shot of the drift
2. The farthest I got, that tree was getting mighty close and so was the edge. I was pretty tired of fighting the steering wheel so I called it a trip. Would be interested in seeing how much further we can get with bigger trucks.
3. This is looking the opposite direction from the same spot, so you can see I was pretty high above G-town.
4. Looking up from the same spot, you can see the shelf road up higher.
5. This was a fun switchback, had to fight for a while to get through it as it was pretty steep and the snow was deep. I like the white wagon wheel look

1. Nice blue bird day, this is back at the first drift I got stuck in.
2. This section took a few tries too, I got a lot of practice with high speed hits and low speed chugs to try and get through this stuff.
3. Cruisin' through the woods
4. This, near the bottom, almost stopped me, because it was rutted and I kept getting in the ruts. I finally hit it on the right side and made it through, was so glad I did because there was a lot of fun to be had later in the freshies!
5. Gate near the bottom is always open, according to a local who was walking the road as I came out.

That's it, great day!

Way to go Matt. Looks like a good little snow run. Except for the shelf road and being by yourself thing. BTDT.
