First trip out West. Absolutely amazing powder!!! Slightly over my riding talent, but somehow we managed. Deep pow days 1 and 2, pretty set up the other days. Can't thank Sam and his buddy Kurtis enough for helping with all the stucks (and there were lots). They would encourage me to try again and were right there to get me un-stuck every time. Can't wait to do it again!

Looks like you had a great time, and your first trip no less! How did the 144 perform?

The short track did just fine. I'm certain all my stucks were due to lack of talent.

You should have come, it was a great time!!! Sam and Kurtis were way over our heads, but you would have had fun playing with them in the brush. Did that snow check get approved?

Winded just walking thru the pow. Add a couple half a$s tugs and I'm toast. Pretty sure I would have died had I not been doing something for a solid 3 weeks prior (-10 lbs certainly didn't hurt). A couple months and -25 lbs would be ideal. Same drive time as The Hills or UP, so I think I know where I'll be heading next yr. 4 dudes making own meals and it was the cheapest trip of the season!!!

yeah it is tough to go to the UP for me it is 7 in good weather and I can make red lodge in 12.5 either way it is a day drive . for u in Iowa it is a no brainer I would deff be keeping my sled in CO and driving a gas miser out 5 or 6 times a winter
yeah it really is not that much money to go on longer trips .I usually spend less on a 7to 10 day ride west than the long weekend rides up north.
up north always eating out drinking at night. out west always 3 to 5 in a cabin every guy has a dinner and breakfast always eating leftovers in the muff pot for lunch. usually to tired to party at night few hits after dinner devour some dessert and hit the rack
