    That is why we are riding in my field tomorrow as we wait for ice. And I am working on metal repair and new paint for my plow.

    the less metal on the plow, the better chance of staying on top the ice :deal

    Isn't grit a positive feature while riding on ice? I'd say leave 'em in.

    Yabbut it's hard to keep in the Camelbak.

    Jason took some really nice pictures. It's weird that I can pull stuff like this off being as big n dopey as I am. I didn't feel like I was doing anything cool, just running laps around having fun.

    I think the tow behind sweeper also found a new purpose.

    Does steering outside the turn help when the front tire isn't touching anything but air?

    :D

    I agree that it's a pretty cool pic. You don't even look like a giant on that two-smoke.
