Great pics everybody...Yoder I'm also wondering if we might want to consider other locations for the S/P run just in case we keep getting this deep snow like the last two winters...something to think/talk/explore about.

I had the tan 85 mini truck. Thanks to everyone who helped winch me out. It was great meeting all of you and four wheeling with you. What little four wheeling we did. I will definitely be installing some bumpers and tow hooks

Great video, Could you please email those two videos to me at elliottengr@gmail.com. Unless there is a way I can download them off of photobucket.

The snow was deep, the weather was OK, the people and food were GREAT!

Thanks
John

John,

I'll figure out a way to get them to you - I just wish I had gotten your first run on video. That was awesome

I'm open to ideas. The lack of shelf roads in Yankee Hill sets it apart from most.

Yeah I've been thinking about a couple different areas...wanted to check them out this winter still, maybe we can set up some small scouting runs once my truck is back together.

Scott,

Thanks again for putting this together, we both had a blast. You and Jeff did a great job describing the trip, I forwarded to my friend who could not go and he was bummed. I wish I would have taken more pictures but I was either digging, pulling or strapping up a truck. This was a great teaching tool for anybody who had any fears using a winch.

Seems that my 4Runner lost about 3" of height in the rear. I guess all that winching of the rear or front and rear was a little much for my little springs. Besides that I had no damage and found all my tools/straps. So when are we going next????

Personally I'm done with snow runs till spring (if that). The snow is no fun anymore. Chinamans in the spring is usually good.

Just got a few pics and a bunch of video from my buddy that went on the Snow and Pizza '08 run with me...Enjoy

What a whale looks like stuck in the snow...


Deep goo...


Yoder's hole...I'm standing in the hole Yoder dug with his rear wheel



VIDEOS - commentary at no extra charge


A few of the butterfly (Red Chili)...








Not locked vs. locked demonstration






Butterfly vs. Whale... - unfortunately my buddy didn't get the other attempts where we are pretty sure Bill's front wheels left the ground




Tug of War...




Blasting up the hill... - guess my copilot was happy he wouldn't have to get out and dig anymore
