Con snow wheeling to Rubicon springs

Went out for a day trip to test out the new 44's. Cruised in not to bad depth wise. Healthy crust with unconsalidated sugar under it. Some of the deep holes were frozen over but not to bad. Went down to Merlin's cabin and turned around and came back out. 2 cruiser's and 2 minitrucks. Only 1 down tree that needs to be cut. I was real surprised after the Very high winds we had last week.

I like the build up of suspense. Let see if I can get the phot chop working. Not to many pics today. I was to busy laughing to pull the camera out.
Well who wants to host? My computer has issues

THERE ARE NO PICS! IT'S ALL A HOAX. HE'S JUST TRYING TO LEARN HOW TO USE PHOTOCHOP. Next thing you know, you'll be seeing his rig in all the same unlikely places around the world the ORION visited earlier this year.



WE WANT PICS, MAN!

Pic2 last water hole/ice hole before the slabs heading to the overlook. Got lucky on the
way in. On the way out it broke up and was about 42 inch's deep with broken up pieces of
ice 6-8 inchs thick.

As always, simply amazing!

I can't imagine driving down such a steep and slippery luge track. I'm jealous of your light rigs and BIG tires.

Thanks for posting them pics.

It was a bit warm for good snow wheeling. It was about 45-50 degrees. A bit of a rain crust with unconsalidated sugar under it. It packed great once one rig went thru, but when you drop the front end thru it's gone. The 44's dig BIG holes. It's pretty much a highway now. Easier this time of year the treewells haven't formed yet and the off camber sections aren't totally filled in. Maybe we will take a run at big sluice this weeeknd.
