Riding yesterday, shovelling the hockey rink at Pass Lake today....that wicked wind created perfect igloo-building snow. Hekto, we're waiting for a photo of a KLR or Sherpa parked in front of an igloo!

We found a huge rack while treking to a lake one winter...dug down to chip it out of the ice and found out it was still attached to the moose

That slush shit always scares the shit out of me when I hit it...sled just doesn't seem to go fast enough when your in it

Take care out there Hekto and thanks for posting the great shots!

I'll see what I can do. I hope to be feeling much better later in the week too. I'm currently recovering from what appears to be the same thing that hit Lappeman.
