The nick name is still a work in progress as of today.

Here are a few ideas though:

"The saw"

"tree trimmer"

"logger"

And maybe a new business?

"Eric's tree removal service"

I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Just picture this, snow coming over the hood, filling your goggles so you can't see, then out of no where a small pine trees appears right in front of you. What to do? Back off? Try to avoid it? Not ridesafe, HE PINS IT! LMFAO!! No damage to the sled at all, but the pine tree found his maker. But it will be o.k., there are still 5,000,000,000 pine trees left in the U.P.

How did the Sled Solutions Nitro with the 136 go through the deep?

Guys....what a ride, the conditions were awesome!

The Nytro had no trouble at all but the sled does not like to carve it's always diving for the ground. Probably one of the biggest reasons it's gone now. I hated selling the sled because I really loved the power but it had some quirks.

Skylar....you keep avoiding my invitation to come to the middle of the U.P., why is that? Loser!! LOL

Paul, because I am a selfish, selfish man. LOL.(Ask my wife)Honestly, I have no interest in going to Muni. Not because I don't think it wouldn't be a good time or anything. But, there is ALWAYS great snow in the Twin Lakes area. And one more important thing, in case I forgot to tell you, it's only 4-4.5 hours away. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif
