Great day in the mountains, tons of boondocking through the trees and hitting a few places to a bit of climbing. We had great snow, pretty deep but also solid, you could go almost anywhere. Fun day!
Not a good day for a 136" track, though!

From Wine Bottle, looking toward Pelican Butte. That's where we're heading
Looking back toward Wine Bottle (the small knob right of center.) They call it "Wine Bottle" because under the snow in a rock pile at the top of the knob, (under the stick visible in the third picture) there used to be a wine bottle. Hikers and riders would put their name on a piece of paper and put it in the bottle. It was kind of like a GeoCache before GeoCache got to be popular, and before GPS's were so common.

Funny you mention that. I don't recall if I posted on this forum or not but I finally did get stuck this winter while riding my RMK. I tried turning around in a tight spot on a day with tons of fresh snow (like 4'). I was going way too slow because of my over-confidence and paid the price. I learned a good lesson though - with a bad enough driver, that sled actually can get stuck!
Looks like fun! We got over 2 FEET overnight here! The little 121 tracks are NOT fairing well!!!
