Don't see any tracks leading to the tree. Logical question : Where was the take off point ?
Glad you were fine ... was waiting for these pics for last two days but didn't dare to ask.

Made it back home. Thanks Norm for everything.
Sorry, no pics. The only one I got is with Marty peeing with a scenic background. He's Mr. January in the upcoming calendar.

I shamelessly put myself in the Thud team. Last year a lot of us teamed up Friday morning and a little short after, when we hit the clay, we made small groups helping each other. That was the best...

OK, humble disclaimer:

Don't want to bring the 1200 GS for the ride and it seems I'm too impaired to set up the needles on my 450 EXC-R. Top end is running fine but it bogs down 1'st gear uphill,...

That would be the best approach. You will damage it no matter what, stupid things like GPS error is 2.5 m and it will return to home 2 yards away:

It wasn't bad at all, little packed snow in a few spots but nothing to worry about, plenty of room to stay in the clear. Those 2 water crossing were not too high either.
