Default 2018 Snow and Pizza Run

We had a blast. 16 rigs. 20 for pizza. People learning their rigs and veterens having fun. A big thanks to Markofsky, Jackson and Ken Davidson for taking care of the second half of the group.

We certainly ran into more snow up near the playground than expected. It was pretty hard with layers witch caused problems with more and more people cutting tracks and getting high centered. So we didn't it very far past the playground. And the main group didn't make it to the quarry.

We missed UncleBen. FJCDan was making great headway up in the front with his new Swampers on his 3rd gen. As well as Dane and TreeRoot.

I tried the berm in the playground and got high center on the top. TreeRoot had to bust it all the way over again.

Post up.

Had an absolute blast. This is always a good exercise of getting stuck and unstuck. Thanks for leading this run again Scott. Can't wait too see the shots Treeroot and Perry got.

Looks perfect! I regretted my decision of not going all day and thought about you guys non-stop. I had to deal with some dad stuff and be responsible. Looking forward to more pictures and stories!

Default Snow and Pizza Run

Thanks again for another great snow run Scott, Julie and I had a blast breaking in the new Swampers. They really made a difference. It was fun having Dane we really rocked that upper section, he was really enjoying how well his Taco performed as well. Wish I had gotten a picture of the Perma smile on his face. Might have to try and get up there again soon.

My first ever snow run, and first time on Yankee Hill. I had a great time, got to help out a little with recovery, had to get pulled out of a jam, met some new people, and got to know some of the well established members.

Pictures always make the steep stuff look like a flat road...oh well...here's a few pics...

Wow. Looks like a great day.
I'm really sorry I missed it this year, but I had to do dad stuff.

Great pictures!
I can't wait to see more.
