Looks like a great trip.

The snow will then proceed to melt and never come back.

thanks for the great pics MZ

when my oldest son came home from Iraq we rented sleds at the Birches and rode up to Pittston Farm and area for a day, great area, well worth the cost of the rent...did it during the week so as you see, trails are empty...

when I rented it was a new Artic Cat 660 turbo 2 place seat w/ room for Don, cost $300 for the day including renting suit, gas and meals, way cheaper then owning a new sled and only using it a couple times a year...

just the reg, and insurance is almost half the price of a rent...

I'm with you and Geode on that.
It would for sure be the easiest way to bring about an early Spring if I bought one now.

Most certainly, buy a snowmobile AND a snow blower and the flowers will be blooming in no time.

Zero problems this year - not even a hiccup from any of the machines. the big 1200 is delivering 18mpg. WooYeah!
All of a sudden i miss the'olMXZ670...those two white peaks look wicked skiable, any access to them? I got a rope

So...did the gps display triple digits

Epic trip indeed...thanx for sharing
