The new King Quad and Lady Di's Honda are
packed and ready to go. We're headed to southern
Arizona right after Christmas dinner

We have no idea where in Arizona we're going, but
we know it'll be warmer than here

Howie, are the ramps I see in the picture secured on the floor or free standing? You are giving me some ideas for my toyhauler.

Hi Nick,

Those ramps are free standing. I bought them at Kragens, but you'll find them at K-Mart and most auto part stores.

I need the ramps to place the "Brutis" right front
tire into, and on top of the wheel well.....
I should have a bigger toyhauler


Marianne and Nick will be bringing their computer on the trip,
so they might be able to let you all know where we
have found paradise. I sure would like to ride with ya

Griz, best to you and family. Enjoy your well deseved trip to Glamis. If you had some snomobiles you could come and enjoy some mountain trails up this way. We had 6" of new snow overnight

Happy Trails!! and Merry Christmas!

Dave!

Where's the pic? That's one thing I've always wanted to do...snowmobiling- that's got to be a 'rush'!

Howie: are you all healed from your KQ incident? Ready to mount that horse again?

Sean,
Wendy and I went up to Mammoth last year and rented snowmobiles. It was a lot of fun. Way different from riding a quad. Once I quite trying to make it behave like an ATV, it went a lot smoother.

Note to self, snow pants and snow boots are a good thing!

It is a blast! I used to go up to a friends place 2 hrs North of the Twin Cites and spend the weekend riding. Most of it was on the frozen lakes going from town to town or should I say bar to bar. The sleds he had were Polaris's and would run a good 70-80 mph on the lakes and those snow drifts out on the lake was a real thrill at speed. Course, you had to carry a flask with you so you wouldn't freeze up between towns. God I miss those days!

Eric:

I sure will keep that in mind (especially the snow pants and boots!).

Tom:

You have to go all the way up to MN to do that? I thought you had a frozen lake in your backyard?! Then you don't have to go so far to get to the bubbly! You crack me up, bud!!
