All my pics are here, but I'll post some pics too
http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...un%2001-26-08/

Someone doesn't know how to drive

1st obstacle

Can you say snow

Doug is stuck

So is Frank

No problem

After Frank left, we took the Elbe Hills to Eatonville rd back. 1st obstacle

2nd obstacle

This doesn't look this good anymore after Doug destroyed it trying to go around 2nd obstacle. Apparently Rubis are only good on rock, as I had to place a whole bunch for him to make it

Virgin snow! HOO HOO!

Andy and I yook a side trip on the way home, and after stopping for dinner in Eatonville, we got home about 10pm, or a little before.

Very interesting to see how two totally different rigs handle in identical conditions.

I had a helluva time getting over this little berm on our side trip, even with both lockers locked. We spent about an hour messing around trying to get my heep over it. Tow strap, Stacking rocks, trying it in reverse, stacking more rocks.

I will add that when a Rubi gets stuck, it is stuck pretty good, because of using the lockers to get buried in the first place!!

The heep performed well with the new gears and other junk I spent tousands of dollars on while it was in the shop getting upgrades.
Felt good to get back in the woods with it.
