Hi Guys 'n Gals!

Just a quick check in to see what's going on!! It is definitely a cold one out there - all over!!

I'm probably peaching to the choir, but just a quick reminder when you're wheeling in this kind of weather!!

Don't forget the obvious: adequate clothing, boots, hats & gloves. Extra clothing (especially hats & gloves) and blankets in case of an emergency are always a good idea.

If you have kids with you in these frigid temp, take extra care to ensure they don't get frostbite, and make sure when they're playing in the awesome snow they're not where they could get in the way of a rig.

Water and food is also a good idea to keep with you.

And remember the trip to and from your wheeling venue - winter roads can be a challenge, too. Everything mentioned for the trail pretty much goes for the trip up and back.

Again, I'm probably preaching to the choir on most of this stuff - but there's never anything wrong with a refresher/reminder!!!

Maybe you have other tips, ideas, or practices to add!!

C-ya!
