One of my best Romp years was the no snow year.

Have fun post lots of pics.

I just got word that there was already 2 feet on the mountain at Wintergreen. I have guests staying there this long weekend. Hope they have recovery points. I can hear them calling me now to help them get to the cabin.

I am glad in many ways the TDI truck is not ready.... The beater will be fun in all this mess of snow, throttle down and drive! Ha ha.

Snow = cushion.

I'm riding up with Dan today as the truck still isn't running right. There were still a couple of rooms left at the Waterville Grand and I e-mailed Bruce that I wouldn't be bringing a vehicle. I'll need to sit shotgun with someone though!

Oh Come On! Just admit that you don't want to get any road salt on your Defender

We ended up with 16" at my house Clay, so I'm not surprised your cabin got over 2'!
My daughter and I made a luge track down our driveway...

You Rompers have fun in Maine!

I would have left by now.... But the fuel lines decided to leak on the beater, both lines now replaced from the tank to the center of the truck. And the rear diff cover has a pin hole, and I've had to swap the starter this am. Ha ha ha

She will survive though! I WILL BE THERE IN IT. ha ha

Probably thought you'd stolen the truck.

That is awesome. I remember that driveway of yours. Perfect conditions and timing for a little luge.
