Left the Twin Cities around 4:30 3/2 headed for Island Park Village Resort. Roads to Fargo where good but from Fargo west we ran into very treacherous conditions that at times limited us to 20 mph until we finally decided to pull off and call it a night near Tower City ND. Cars and trucks in the ditch everywhere and it was pushing our rig and 27' ft inline all over the road. We pulled into IP around 10 PM Saturday night due to continued High winds most of the way arcross Montanna and then snow and Ice from Bozeman to IP. We couldn't catch a break on the driving conditions but we ended up at our destination safe and sound and ready for some sleep!

Day one started out with sticker purchasing and gasing the sleds up at the store just down the street. That store had everything you needed in regards to food and beverages to some sled accesories if needed. Ran into Polarisrider1 and his gang as we where heading out the door and chated about where to head for the day to do some shake downs and get used to the area. Headed out twoards Two Top and only made it about 2 miles before we had our first issue. My Brother-n-laws M8 would only run on one cylinder and we had to drag it back to the resort. He opted to stay back and try and diagnose the issue before deciding to rent so we headed out once again to find what we had drivin 1200 miles to find.

Day 2 started out better with my Brother-n-law renting a 600 RMK. We headed back to where we had rode the day before to explore some more and take some action shots.

Looks great Willey! How does that compare to other places out west you have been to? You rode with PR1 some too, didn't you?

Only been to Togwotee and now IP. Liked them both! Togwotee is your one stop shop in my opinion, but you are limited to lodging options. IP and West Yellowstone offer more in regards to lodging and nightlife, food and entertainment if that is important.

More pics to Come! Yes we rode with PR1 and his gang for a day.

Willey did any of your videos turn out? In our search for Mount Jefferson that I thought I would never find, I looked back at my GPS bread crumb trail that night and it showed me going right over it??? duh on me! lol. snow was way better over at the "Bridge" area we built. Plan next year for Cooke City the guys asked me to invite your group. We enjoyed spending the day with you guys.

I have video and will try and do some editing to make it into something worth watching. I am new at it so it may take a little while. Cooke sounds good to me!
