    This is proof that people from CA can't drive in the snow (At least me).. This was after at least 10 minutes of going forward and reverse... The video takes a while to download... And I can only leave it here a few days.. I went over my disk space with it...Dan

    The night before I busted my slip yoke.. My CB went up in smoke. I cut my hand and had to get 6 stiches.. All within a 24 hour period.. The way my luck was going.. I had to give up.....LOL

    If it ain't broke.......Don't fix it....

    That's not snow!!!!![​IMG] I don't understand what the problem was..... were you caught up in some ruts or somrthing?

    I think the biggest diffrence that I can see is that it looks like you guys get wet snow. Up here, our snow is like a fine powder and I have no problems plowing through 2 ft of the stuff.

    Check this one out - <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/unangst/aac> Up to the bumpers!!!!</a>

    The problem was it was Ice... When I was backing up I kept hitting a block of Ice that threw me into the bank.. I finally got out with all of us doing a lot of shoveling.. Ken'S girlfriend Marsha did the most shoveling with that great big shovel...LOL

    You gotta try the 'wet' coast snow Paulie...it turns to hardpack ice as soon as you drive on it. Then if you have luck like me the ruts you just created freeze...

    Dan, try and imagine the same amount and type of snow but with only inches between you and the trees and a 15 degree sidehill[​IMG] Thats what Walker Valley was like for us a couple of weeks ago.[​IMG]

    I hope yer hand gets better soon!
