Interested...

...but I would vote for the weekend of 2/16-17.












That is, if we are all still around after 12/21?

Cheers!

Can't wait! My 500 is soooo much lighter to push up hill in the snow and the Sprinter has a diesel heater installed

If it doesn't snow.. perhaps we should drop down Argentine and then come back over webster

Lets NOT make it valentine's day perhaps for once?
That said, I'm in for whatever works.

Valentines is mid-week, so either weekend is open.

I'm in a class from 2/2/13 through 2/11/13 so can't make the 9th.

Cheers to whatever happens!

I vote for the week after Cupid's Drive-By Festive Shot in the Ass.
May offer another week or 2 of good snow

Looking forward to testing these out again:

Yeah, second Sunday. I asked about Saturday because I always go up for the camp-out the day before.

Made em. I don't think anyone is currently making them for sale, but there have been some companies in the past.
