Access to that road/camps was shut down 2 or so years ago. When you cross the beaver pond or bypass you can only go right, the camp was straight

Newburyport is my primary destination. Romp is a side run.

The town is floundering along with the rest of Eastern MA due to the snow. It is pretty awesome.

Got you covered. Consider it "demo day". Who knows 'what' is going to work. Or if we just all adjourn to the local drinking establishments...

I'm looking into renting sleds and bringing them with Jesse.

'tis a lovely place - But good luck finding parking. They need to truck it out before this next storm Thursday or there won't be any roads left to drive on.

Friend with a commercial glass co is giving me a 2003 7.3 f250 4x4 that he's retired from his fleet. Plan is to load it on the trailer and leave the combo @ his commercial property and then pick it up on the Southbound swing.

Appreciate the offer but there's no reason I can think of to tow it North into worse conditions when it needs to go 800 miles South. It will be fine @ his commercial condo until I head South.
Got your pm and meeting up with you and Zack for a beer sounds good.

Yup that one! We were on a main trail at 10pm and said "hey lets turn left" and didn't get out till 3am or something. Eric was leading and broke his winchline twice. I went through 10 pairs of socks that night. I remember getting home and I had a pair of pink socks on that were spares that Barb let me use. And it was only like 1000 yards... of the nastiest crap ever.
