Got some snow tubing in with the girls today, they had a blast!

Also took the scoot for a short ride around the block in the snow was interesting, my winter tire hooked up pretty damn good!
should have put one on the front when I had the chance. Oh well

I'm trying to get away to the Hatfield/McCoy Little Coal River. The problem is the tween girl sleepover on Friday/Saturday. I've got a small offroad area in Malvern as my fall back plan.
