Please fill out a GLFWDA Tailgate Report. It only takes a couple minutes to help GLFWDA keep our trails open.

I'll take Dan's beer! His winch, correction, my winch on his truck was slack the whole time

I'm glad that I didn't break my Jeep in half pulling you and Dan up. That PTO doesn't know when to say when

Also, I'd like to say a big thanks to the guys for the fire at the rocks. That was the absolute perfect lunch stop for my group in that nasty weather!

Our Saturday speedy exit from the woods on hilly trails was one of the most fun times of the weekend. Several years later we still haven't ever been able to finish our entire planned 'challenging' route. Time to change it up for 15' and cover more ground. Maybe turn half of our uphills into downhills

I concede. Renegadeii puts on a better run and is a better leader than me. That's why next year I am referring everyone to his run. He and danimal are more than capable of leading 20-25 rigs..... No problem.
Some number of years back I ran the SnoFari trails with a guy that had a million (or more) maps and another one with a rectangular headlight, chevy engine thing he claimed was a Jeep. Between these two old dudes I learned how to put together a SnoFari trail ride that I think is fun.

Oh, and 10 vehicles is more than enough, thanks

Don't worry, Paul had a problem with that on our run.

In 2009 the AEV guys and I did a high speed run back to the hotel, and last year Danimal and I did when I needed to keep moving so I didn't overheat.

VERY fun

Edit: Think our high speed runs during trail maintenance.

JF81 would be perfect on your run Shawn, I think he has an on / off switch instead of an accelerator pedal

Sent in the TG report.

I think this is one of my favorite events ever, even not wheeling this year, hell we spent 3-4 hours hanging around the fire with people we'd only met the night before, and had a GREAT time!

Just a great example of why Snofari is loved by so many. Thanks to all of you who put in all the hard work that makes this event SoAwesome!
