[QUOTE=Klay;20941884]I've marked it off on the calendar. Last year's impediments (sale of business, wife's health) are off the radar screen. I think I can track down Dog Lake.

Looking out for you !!! Could meet up if Scottie wants to hook up for a Jameson's I knife river ...

I plowed the driveway at camp. Running out of places to put snow and the forecast isn't showing any snow melting days for the next few weeks. I can't imagine we can be out riding back roads in 9 weeks. I sure hope so though.
Paying for warm winds so we don't get flooded out.

Gord - the forecast doesn't look any better here. The daily maximum high temp right now is supposed to be 1 C. Yet the predicted temps for the next week or so are all significantly colder than that. This is January all over again. The only consolation is that the rest of the province (and out West as well) seem to be facing the same cold weather.

Yeah I saw that video a while ago.
That guy was lucky to not have major injuries.
Terrain does look like Utah.

The Ice Breaker might be the real deal if things don't start melting. Sick of the snow!
I started a bunch of maintenance on the KLR today while it was warm....-3.
