My brother and I headed up to get the 6th annual April spring ride in. It was a blast, both days. Still lots of snow in the woods left, and trail 3 was still in great shape, for the little bit of time we were on it.

Kimmer and the sleds.

Kimmer, a little crossed up, but he landed it and rode it out.

Here I am checking out another one

I decided to dig down and see how much was still on the ground in this particular spot. I am standing in the hole I dug, there is at least 2- 2 1/2 feet here.

Here I am about to hit another jump, but the camera died after this pic. Batteries were cold or something.

Poos and trees, Poos and trees. It was either the tree or the stump my helmet is on, I chose the tree.http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

Trail 3

http://www.johndee.com/discuss/messages/91027/108562.jpg

We started riding about 2:45 PM, and got back about 7 pm. 51 miles on, never crossed our tracks once.

Saturday we trailered up to John's, then from there trailerd up to Delaware to drop and ride from. There was 11 of us total who were riding Saturday. A bluebird day, and plenty of sunshine made for a great last ride for the 08-09 season. Had an absolute blast riding with these guys!

That wraps up another winter sled season for me, can't wait until December for it to start all over again. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

View on Mt Houghton is amazing everytime.
Getting pretty good at helping clean up blown belts there skylar?

Hard to believe there is still that much snow up there.

That is a sweet trailering setup for 2 sleds on that pickup truck...is that a custom job or something you can buy...assume you need an 8 foot bed for that?
