We had a great time despite not really getting onto the trails. Had a late breakfast as Big G's this morning and then headed to Portland. It was cold and windy, but very beautiful.



Now we are staying the night just north of Boston and headed to Providence tomorrow for lunch before heading back to Brooklyn.

Providence.
It may be the armpit of New England, but it does have a very high concentration of strip clubs!
Jus sayin

Got somewhere in mind? Not as many options on Monday but the food is a big part of why we live here. Legs n eggs is what most people in New England seem to think is the only thing here.

Wow, that was cold. Great to meet you Doug, Dave and Chris. Dave, thank you for the RURR. Chris, how did you make out getting home?

We got out ahead of everyone Saturday with 4 trucks to break trail. Spent the entire day making the loop through the bypass and around the ridge to the top of the power lines and down. Sooo much recovery, we resorted to using my truck as deadweight behind the trax Series III to try and groom the trail. Broke a set of chains and radius arm bushings. Fixed everything Sunday AM along with other carnage and we went out again and did the full loop. Not as much recovery effort this time but was still substantial. Add that to the white knuckle moments on the ride home Sunday night with white-outs and a lack of any heat because I couldn't get the engine temp above 120 at 60mph due to the cold and wind, and it made for a hearty weekend...

Hope you guys made/make it safely home today. Chris, now I get to go do more snow removal in -4 without windchill. Winter is fun....not.

Will post some more video and pics when I finish hibernating.

By that point there were 10 other intrepid souls who were stuck around us and all had to be turned around to get out. We left the trail head @ 10 last night. Sitting in a disco drinking Laphroig that was about zero degree's because it had been in Chris Snyders 90 was about the high point of the day. 11 hours to do 2 miles of trail.

Looking @ the weather and trying to decide whether leaving today is the right move. South of here the storm hit harder and Kittery for example got 17 inches of snow last night. Winds are forecast to be gusting to 60 here today, wind chills will be crazy low.
We got off the trail about 9:45 in the P38. We had no trouble going in and the trouble coming out was related to being stuck behind the WJ and the 4Runner. The P38 on RUD's did fantastic. Had some good food and a great time overall.

I made it back with no dramas ... The only event was my passenger wiper dislodged itself about 100miles from home. 30 second fix.

Have a thick layer of roady salt stuff ...

I do find extreme irony that my "go anywhere vehicle" sits snugly in the garage for the winter, while you geezers brave the snow & salt. Also keeping in mind that I routinely bounce mine off of trees and rocks just adds to that irony.

$20 bucks for a wash with chassis scrub solved the salt problem.
