    I didn't feel challenged enough last saturday on the snow run. Oh well, it was a good fun time, and considering we had alot of under-35" tire vehicles it was probably a good thing the snow wasn't like it was last year.

    Figures... last year I have open diff's and a 6.2 Diesel on 35's and the snow is deep, this year I have a 454, 37's, Lockers, and I just kinda drove right through everything. (I did get stuck once when a couple of us ventured up a hill climb and I slid sideways onto something while the suspension was flexed out.)

    I even sustained a dent (figured the only dent I've ever gotten and it has to be the custom stepside fender). I didn't even realize it until the next day. Must have been what I slid over into. The motor I had just put in ran good for being the 1st full day of it back in and running in the truck after new rings and bearings and a different used cam. Had a few quirks with it, but it pulled us through the entire run.

    My friend Nathan won $65 in the Poker part with 4 jacks and an ace, and I had the 2nd best hand with 3 6's and 2 aces.

    Anyways, here's a few pics. Nothing hardcore, but the group had fun. And I brought Frosty with to keep us in the holiday mood. I plugged him in when it got dark.
