Its funny because it helps a ton in the dry sugar snow, except that it's really inconsistent. You'll be on top and then out of no where you sink, which could be because of a dry spot or a slushy spot

seriously! WTF happened to this "COLD" storm.

The day the "COLD STORM" started it's been in the upper 40s consistently... prior to that it was freezing every evening for over two weeks

I'll give you that bringing pallets to the woods is lame.

However, when's the last time you tried to start a fire in wet snow, with wood you found?

For the life of me i can't figure out why some of you seem to have a hard on for not burning pallets.....free, dry and easy. Been burning them and using them for fires for years.

I would also add the toxins in the treated wood. I think most open burn laws prohibit the burning of pallets because of this.

We met a few cool people. Lmpymilk helped my buddy get unstuck several time, he's an awesome dude. It started to rain so I didn't get many pictures.

LMFAO boy you would lose your liberal mind at one of our camp fires then. Some pallets, couple chunks of rail road tie and a couple tires make a damn nice fire.

Snow day.

Just a quick run to the mnts, had a great time. It was a lot more fun til it started to warm up then it just plain got no fun.





No pallets were burned during this trip thus nobody needs to worry about nails laying around.

Only thing I have seen better than the PBRs is IROKs.

That being said, I was keeping up just fine with Chad on his 42 radial iroks on my 37 inch radial PBRs.

Yeah, burning tires makes for a great time sitting around the camp fire drinking beer. I'm pretty sure you still haven't figured out what the other poster was talking about yet though.

Huffing tire and creosole may be harmful to already scarce brain cells.

You guys are making me more excited for my 37s I ordered in the 50% off sale

Would be good of the filled the void between the 37s and 41.5s, a 38-39.5x13-14.5 would be sweet.

Just read the forecast for where I live, 1-2 feet of snow predicted for tomorrow. I will get in some snow wheeling on just the 5.5 mile dirt road to my house. I'm gonna go out now and chain up the plow and get it ready.

Snow is kinda shitty sugar, but getting better. Was kinda impressed with my experimental nitto mud grapplers, was able to crawl out of this.







All I got, it was more of a sledding trip.
