Default yankee hill 12-18-05

when i pulled up to the cemetary, i could almost hear scott yoder breathe a sigh of relief...at least one other person showed up. that was all we had and all we needed.

for those that didn't show, you all suck 'cause we had an AWESOME run!

lots of snow, lots of drifts, mostly old and crusty, but no where near hard enough to run on top of.

the first half was just fun, the second half was the work portion. we probably used the strap 10 times in a half an hour! it was deep and as much as it tried, it couldn't stop us, but it gave us a run for our money.

a few times, i saw a drift ahead, and hammered down....all would be going great, then, it was like a hitting a brick wall...dead stop. we just had to keep backing up and hitting it again. no way were were even going to come close to going over the top...we turned around at the little meadow area before that last nasty hill (the one that pitches you into the tree on the right)...the pics will show you why! didn't bust through the drift in the playground either. yoder slowly drove up it and all he'd be doing was shovelling...that's a lot to shovel we were not worthy.

we both spent a lot of time with the rooster tails flowing and motors screaming, but when we stopped the air was so beautifully dense that all we could hear was the snow crunching beneath our feet. great day! thanks yoder!

Nice pictures Ige. I sure am glad you showed up. Not sure what happened to Al, Daryl and his brother.

It was nice to be able to lead and break trail. We were basically just barely able to break through the trail with a lot of momentum and keep moving. Until we got to the giant drift section, just below the top of the hill and timberline. The drifted snow made a hard crust about 16" deep. If it was too deep there was no hope of getting through it. If we were to winch through it we would have been met with another drift right after it. I believe it was the same section were LenniesRed got too last time.
