    I just noticed that Pearls is having their ice race off Pete's on the 14th. Looks like that will be one giant poorly thought out cluster fuck.

    So the difference between safety for a 200lb fella, or a 900lb atv is 1 inch of ice. Not sure I'm buying that. You go first!

    On a thursday? :huh

    think how nice the plowing will be after anything that's out there is trampled down.

    I think we teach a minimum of 6" for an ATV in safety class.

    But personally, I would check with the Army about it. Those engineers are clever fellows.

    nobody really comes out for pics anymore :dunno

    I have a decent P&S, but I don't think it would capture too well. Plus, I always leave it on the coffee table.
