What tire sizes are you guys all running? I keep hearing if you have less than 35's you are going to have trouble with snow this deep.

No. Problem is, you could be running 37's and have issues. Just depends on the trail, the conditions of the trail, etc. Unless you want to break trail, you should do fine. The only drawback to the deep snow is the amount of waiting you may do while the trucks in the front break trail. But a number of folks are organizing to get out there Friday and open things up.

You should ask yourself if you can handle 3 slices of french toast at Big G's....

I'll probably be heading out ahead of you Justin. I like to get there before dusk and give my bleeding ears a little break before the night run.

This is very true! The snow is just a minor inconvenience. The real problem is fitting in time to eat your left overs from the doggy bag you took away from Big G's the first day

Definitely Randy. Pretty bad picture. But the french toast is nearly the width of my torso.
