Just made it home. I'm downloading the videos and pictures right now. I'll work on them tonight and hopefully upload them tomorrow. Got a few wheelers on my interior cam.

Met a lot of new people today, and had a lot of fun as usual. Wheeling in the winter is such a different ball game, but awesome as hell to say the least.

I had some fun, got stuck in the impassable mud hole and busted an inner shaft on the merrygo round. I have pictures but I'm at greasyhands waiting for sonoma944 to get the key to the lugnuts so I can fix it.

thanks for helping us out there today.

Had a great time. Learned alot about wheeling in the snow. would have been more fun if we had decent tires. can't wait to go up when it's dry and warmer.
