    This may sound weird to some....it's a career thing...it's a riding thing.....it's an addiction thing......it's a comarade thing....on my 300 mile Harley ride yesterday I thought about not riding 100 days a year on a sled. What would I do with myself? I know 10 or 15 days would NOT work........so I feed the addiction......."I ride because the voices in my head tell me to".......come on winter.......

    Finishing up all my projects around the house for the year. Getting ready for another winter out west. Doesn't look like we will be riding Two Oceans first weekend of November like I have in the past couple years. I will take the cooler temps and cool down the ground before epic dumps start.

    You guys know how this works.....a little bit here a little bit there.....got some last nite....the road over Togwotee pass looks like a fun drive......and maybe 2 plus in the yard. This is the time of year to become impatient, that snow dance doesn't work......maybe if I cuss someone out he will start dropping tons....or maybe not...LOL.....anyway, Thanksgiving is upon us......and this too will start soon.......

    So, today I'm headed to Pinedale to pick up my 850.....warranty work and a couple of things done to it......picked up yesterday's paper to find front page picture of 2 sledders up in the area pushing 3 feet. Not bad considering we have grass in town. My sled has to make it up there tomorrow so I will have a good look around. I admit I was suprised at the picture. Sure hope it's true.....what a suprise.......

    Took 2 sleds up to Togwotee yesterday......didn't forget to drive up to the top of the pass. Over all there is a foot plus.....some of the hidden meadows, hidden from the wind, had a little more, some ravine banks had 18 plus. Lots of tracks, early season riders breaking in new equipment, and those other crazies. Supposed to storm up there all week. Oh, and everyone have a wonderful thanksgiving...

    Yes and no. No short of the long story yet. Gonna do some family riding in UP till the 27. However, I am looking for someone to haul my 850 out to Jackson week of the 20th. Anyone going to Jackson?

    Saw on facebook yesterday a guy got caught in an avy at Togwotee. He was ok, head stayed up out of the snow, but he was buried up to his neck.
    Lake Effect Snow, my three favorite words.

    For those about to travel to Togwotee, the riding is fantastic right now. 2-3 foot deep powder, and not a lot of people here, It's doing the 1-2 inch thing for the next bunch of days. Really good riding now.....

    The plow is out.....8 inches expected in the next 36 hours with those pesky 2 inchers after that. Going to need a snorkel soon.

    Heading out next week, how has avy condition been? Everything extreme?

    Yes.....not enough time for the snow to lock up. Had a nice sunny day Wednesday and that will help, but we are getting another 4 on Fri. and that means 8 up top so the threat is still real. Actually, we are always concerned about the big A......gotta ride smart.......more later...

    So, 2 storms were forecast. The first sorta fizzled. Got a couple inches. This second one is doing it so far. A reset for the mountains is a good thing. The weekend brought us warm and thickened up everything. The storm will fix that. Pack it up and git on out here.......
