Thanks Scott for organizing, and thanks to Rudy for taking care of the rear. It was a great day!

Hey thanks Scott and the crew. I love it when we are actually moving on a snow run. Making it all the way over to Alice is indeed a rarity. Everyone had good tow points and were prepared for the conditions. Thanks to Bob in Denver and Hants for getting things organized on the last hill climb to get everyone up the hill. Oh yeah, and thanks to 60wag for helping out with the 55 in the parking lot and the blue FJ40 on the trail.

My favorite part? Watching Zak's FJ55 climb up the last snow hill just as far as everyone else got. I think the biggest smiles were in the FJ55! Great drivin' guys!.

Geat time had by all, waching some of the other trucks bashing through the drifts was a blast. The H3 and 55 did a great job attaking the hill and everyone was excited for for them.

The little side trail Bill took the lead group on turned out to be the hardest challange we faced nearly all day. The hill climb was fun too, got to go up and down it about 5 times to flatten the snow for the lower trucks, that was too much fun.

Sharon did not have to pull to much winch line this year so she got to enjoy it with the doggies. The dogs were so tired last night that when we came home they ate their dinner and headed upstairs to their beds right away. We followed shortly there after

Thanks again Scott GREAT JOB and Bo Joe's (sp) worked out great!!!

Thanks for the great day! I did the usual 80's dance of spinning all four in idle while resting on the frame in a big drift or two, and then running down the hill with Randy who wanted to get back to Central City to load up the Gecko and getting stoopid stuck in a spot that I got stoopid stuck last year (Two things: 1) consistency is not always a virtue and 2) I really do need a winch at this point ).

I'll have some video to post up when I get a few mins to mess with it. Sorry we missed the pizza, my older boys had a guest whose mother was really nervous about him attending and we needed to get him back by the time we got off the trail. The sledding was the definitely a highlight of the day, not often you get a quasi snow disc half tube 20 feet off the trail

Awesome run

1) Randy and Dee
2) Bill and Tom
3) When did Stephen Rudy convert his truck to right hand drive?
4) More proof
5) Gave the snatch strap a serious workout with the Treeroot extraction.

Really awesome run, thanks again Scott for the coordination, especially the pizza was so nice to walk in and have it already there, rather than wait 45 minutes for them to cook one. Enjoyed all the antics on the trail like everyone else, didn't take many pictures though. I got to use my winch though right off the bat, trying to catch up to the group still at 35 psi.. was fun to take the truck out for a change, I think it really enjoyed it.
