Default Snow and Pizza Run Planning

So the snow conditions up Yankee Hill are good now but getting worse fast. It seems like the 2nd half above the "Poser" parking lot is now out of reach for normal rigs like me, yet the bottom sections are light and fluffy with only about a foot of snow.

I could lead a run on both Jan. 3rd and Jan.17th. Both are Saturdays. We won't know how much new snow will fall but my gut feeling is by Jan 17th we will be struggling on the very bottom road like we have on the last several runs which I would like to avoid.

So I would like to propose a few options.

A. We do it on Jan 3rd while we still have a chance of getting around.

B. Someone else leads it on another weekend. I'm totally open to someone else leading this.

C. We run if on Jan. 17th and do the best we can like in years past. I know more people would be available at this time.

Either and or any work for me. Now that I know my tire gauge is way off I can adjust my tires correctly and float like Bill did last year..................I hope.

Green chili sounds good, as a matter a fact I am eating a bowl at work right now. We may bring some too, sure to keep you warm and the nose running.........
Thanks T aka Tom KR0MPS
