Keeps on Snowing...

Up to 14" right now Just came in from blowing out the driveway, windy and about minus 35 with the wind! Still snowing too!

Well thanks to my good friend KEL115 who braved the freezing temps and deep snow, we managed, well he managed to get the stub end of the bolt out of the tie rod...much to my relief. So now it's just a matter of ordering a new end and putting it back together...maybe by then it will have warmed up and we can go riding

Just like biking. No bad weather just bad gear.
I do wonder why I wear a heated jacket and gloves on the bike but not on the sled :shrug

Yea, it has been a long 5 years since I was down here. We are taking a break from shoveling snow and doing some great riding. Running 250cc bikes has been a good choice.
