September... snow on some of the high mountain peaks already (NW Wyoming got some snow, and I've heard reports of snow on some of the radio sites in CO). Successful race season for me last year - ended up taking 3rd overall in semi-pro cross country. Will be racing that circuit again this year, still on my '16 Assault. AIARE's moving forward with their motorized avalanche curriculum - with the Level 1 course out and good feedback coming out of that (Brian and I instructed about half a dozen of those last year), there's momentum on the Level 2 training. Taking a course-leader training in mid December to get the ball rolling on that. We (TylersBA.org) will continue offering intro courses for free, as well as the 3-day Level 1 courses this season. Haydays in MN coming up next week, starting to get gear/equipment together for that. We'll (TylersBA) be in the same spot we've been in for the past several years - SCN9, good spot right across from the SnoBarons merchandise barn. We'll have the big trailer there again, see it live-and-in-person. F550 puked this summer - 6.0L gave up. That frankentruck got a Cummins swap, up and running as of this weekend. Should be good for a while now. Next show is the Denver expo, first weekend in October. I'll be instructing a workshop on radio communications again this year. After that is a couple of dealer open-houses (usually Vickery and Steamboat), then it's snow time.
