Oddly, the engine bay was free of snow. The drift on the drivers side was up past the door handle, and both wheel wells were completely packed. Underneath the truck, the snow was packed up to the frame, and the rear axle was completely packed in.

The truck gets buried like this a couple times each winter. Typical snow storm for up here!

Here's the result of a storm we had at the end of December:

Heh, heh. Not too bad actually! When we have blizzard conditions, and the snow is blowing sideways, there is always some that works it's way into the truck. Usually around the door seals and part of the gutter kit. It'll pile up by the lower seat belt mounting , and along the roll cage base right behind the seats. Otherwise, it stays snow free inside!

Hah! I just realized what a rediculous statement that is! Can you imagine any other vehicle owner putting up with piles of snow in their car?

I always liked these ones, my first expedition, in mid-winter northern Quebec ...

One of my earliest childhood rover memories - we lived on a remote island in Canada and had our car snowed in for a good couple of months until we finally dug it out and our neighbor pulled us up the 1/4 mile dirt track that was our driveway with his Land Rover.... the little guy in the BG is me.

Might have something to do with this being in our driveway 43 years later

ROVERS Club made it's annual trip to Spruce Cabin Camp this weekend. The cabin is 5-6 miles behind a locked gate. We met at a local restaurant Friday evening and started past the gate at about 10 p.m. Six hours later (4:00 a.m.) we made it the 5 miles to the cabin. Snow was up to your knees and that was after melting for the last few days!

Awesome fun. What chains had problems? Do the Rudds hold up? I wore shorts and tshirt today while airing out the RTT. Hard to believe it's still cold up north.
