I wish I could have made it, snow runs are so much fun. How many total rigs, did anybody count?

I was impressed that there weren't big "traffic jams". Yeah there were a few slow spots, behind stuck vehicles, but overall not bad. There were, I think, 3 groups. The more built-up vehicles and two groups of the more common vehicles. This helped keep things moving.

Great job on being the Leader. You didn't just say "let them fend for themselves". You hung with groups to assist thru spots.

i tried adding it up at dinner and came up with 28 rigs most of them with multiple people, so a wag of 50 attendees.

My personal thanks to Nate & Jeff & Ricardo & Ricardo's son & everyone else who helped out in my time of need. Amazing what a PITA 1 misplaced pebble can cause. My lessons learned from this trip are:

1-Get the 40 running so I don't have to take a very large and heavy truck wheeling
2-When I have to take aforementioned truck wheeling, dont be a DA and leave half the tire chains at home, thus causing me to air down the unchained front tires which resulted in losing a bead when clobbering a rock
3-Put a cork in the tube to the spare tire mechanism so little pebbles cant get in it and become a huge PITA
4-Really appreciate all of the fine folks in the club knowing you wouldnt be left behind no matter what happened. The pizza and company afterwards were great too!

1. The group before the other half arrived.
2. After going through the ice hill bypass twice. I was backing down to strap someone and had to winch out myself.
3. Bruce strapping
4. Middle parking area with storm down below.
5. The jump at the 1st playground. It looks like Uncle Ben's group busted it open a few days prior. I still say someone bladed the little hill down so it's flat now.

1. Nay getting strapped
2. Nay's two boys having fun
3. The turn around point for all but the 4 in the first group
4. JKimmel playing around and getting stuck. I got to strap him. He came down with Rudy in the first group.
5. This was the section coming back and up toward the first playgound that many had a hard time getting through.

I think I also have a couple of short videos. Gotta finish my garage project first (before going back to work tomorrow)!!!
Almost forgot to thank you Paul for all your work working the D-rings, straps and shovels all day. You were quite helpful.
