    Well the wife and I went christmas tree shopping with another couple today. For fun we took an hour and half drive north to Sandpoint ID to go to a tree farm and cut down a tree. More just for the drive and fun than anything. So I figured hey we both want big trees so lets pile in the burb and I'll grab the car trailer and talk about an easy way to haul a 8ft and a 11ft christmas trees.

    It couldn't have been a more perfect day, it started snowing half the way up there so we got to cut down and load up our trees in the snow. With the car trailer for the most part empty it wasn't a bad haul in the snow. Also my new bfg all terrians on the burb are awesome in the snow.

    First is a pic when we got back in town after almost 2 hours on the road in a snow storm going 30-40mph the whole way in traffic.

    The second pic is of our extra large tree tarped on the trailer
    and the third is the wife standing next to our trophy of the day in the house :D
