Was hoping for some dry wheeling this weekend. Looking less likely now.

I drove up to Auburn today and the sign said chain controls over summit. But I'm sure you have to be really high for it to stick. I'm can't wait until summer. I'm going to be ordering an Aussie for the front within a couple days so I should be able to go on a little tougher trails.

Dropping the kids off for school this morning there were cars with snow on them, from about probably 3k or so. But nothing at my house at all 2800'

it looks like were down to 4 or 5 guys, metal had to drop out.


this was posted on ghp's web site:

It snowed almost 5 inches in Tahoe this morning between 5 am and 10:30 am. but all of it melted by noon after the sun came out. All the snow is gone and the roads are dry now. Any snow in the hills will not be a problem. You guys might have problems getting to the trail head, there are a couple up hill grades that are in the shade and snow will stay there for some time. It is going to be 50/50 if you guys can even get to the trail this time of year. Good luck and have fun.

lets see, junior in highschool, no job, no money, middle of track season (kinda important, only a few more first places away from going to finals) and no money. hahah but other then that, im ready lol. actually when school gets out (4 weeks) i asked my mom, if i could paint the house for some money. she said if i paint the house she will buy me a RE 3.5 SF lift kit, and maybe some tires. im also going to be working at my g-mas, staining her fence and doing chores, and you know how old people are (THEY PAY VERY WELL) so that should be able to pay for my tires. and rims, eh dont need them right now. thats my status

ahh yea that sucks going to public school and all I switched over to home schooling when i was younger and from 13-15 i worked part time for a contractor here locally and since i turned 16 i have worked full time for him. So its been nice to have the cash flow. It's been a lot of work though between keeping my GPA up above 3.6 and work i dont have much free time.

Like this weekend i will be doing school all day tomorrow and sunday and wednesday I have a short day at work so i will be doing schooll all day wednesday too but whatev. only 4 weeks left then im done. No more school until like the fall of 2010 then im going to either chico or sac for some welding certs and then once i get those im off to wyotech or UTI to become an auto mechanic.

Its tough rite now for young people like us though i mean here in cali were up to a 20% jobless rate or atleast here in my county we are. And with so many people not having jobs no one wants to put young people to work ya know. They would rather give that position to someone that needs the money like a single mom or a guy trying to support his family but we'll get though eventually
