Default Yankee Hill Snow run

Another great run again. Didn't make it too far, and took awhile to get there. Snow was great, but there was a hard layer of snow from the storm 2 weeks ago. Trying to break snow drifts was like running into brick walls. Here are afew pic's I got. Thanks again Kevin

Breaking trail and driveshafts. The video def' reveals a noise when the front end of Kevin's truck landed.


I had a ball up there. The conditions were perfect.


Below are a couple of shots from the day. I ended up driving down Golden Gate Canyon on the way home. I took a detour through the park and found the Ford laying beside the road with it's lights on. I stopped to see if anyone was inside but it was empty. That was a seriously slick road.

That was the last straw! Operation eliminate all mini truck crap from the 80 is underway! Mo powa and less Little Tykes truck components will make for a happy old man!
