It is deep up here this year!

Power lines trail is a blast. Couldn't make it up last night, but did it a few times today.

Most people are getting stuck in the flat areas(including myself).

tire chains seem to be in use by most folks - I did not use them today and seemed to get around OK but I may put them on tomorrow.

Bobeck and I hit the trail today. We got stuck in the pit of despair for a bit. Had a double winch pull to get out!

That is Q is the Series I

Today we had a pretty good run at it. I swapped to chains and Q continued to run straight bias-ply tires. Bobek had to give his a few tugs to keep him going. RIJOSHO got to enjoy today inside my truck in a real seat instead of bouncing around in the back of Q's Series I.

Nice wheels. Much the same idea as the Stazworks but actually DOT approved. Bitch to get the ice out of but then again so were the Stazworks. Nice to be able to air down to 6-8 psi with no worries.

Picked up a few Lobsters on the way back again at the Harbor Fish Market in Portland, Maine. Not bad at $9.99 a lb! Pics from the romp coming shortly.

Josh - that is a neat perspective.

I screwed up the flikr settings on half of my photos and they were set to private. I just changed them back to public view so there is more to see in the gallery, now.

Another Romp in the books! Great catching up with you guys! Seemed like more time was spent in "traffic" and doing recovery than wheeling. Sounds like Sunday was the best but unfortunately we headed out after breakfast. Maybe next year we can get a map and designate trails to go in one direction with degrees of difficulty?
