All depends on the condition of my daughter. The arrival of my first grandchild is only a couple weeks away.

And, since I just got the Jeep back together, I gotta see if there are any more gremlins. Shakedown tomorrow.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. I&#39;m going up on Sat. anyways, but had considered for 1/2 second to hit the mounds on the way up instead...

Trail conditions as of 12/31/2005 in the West Branch area. This is the sight that I use when I am going up to play.

http://www.fishweb.com/recreation/snowmobi...ls/trails1.html (http://www.fishweb.com/recreation/snowmobile/trails/trails1.html)

"Well folks We got some snow last night. was out plowing this morning and it ranged from 1 1/2 inch in Alger to 4 inches just 5 miles north of Rose City. towards St Helen was getting light, bout 3 inches total. Seen some sleds out early this morning getting that first track in the trails. Still a little rough though, It&#39;s suppose to melt again Sunday Night into Monday with rain forcasted but will see how it goes. I&#39;ll update as fast as I can on conditions for the new year after I recover, Myself &#33;&#33;&#33; Thanks Folks: Jay Johnson "

Mike I will be at the meeting but the truth is I dislike snow ( I dislike the cold in general) so unless the amount of snow is minimal I probably will not be present for the trail ride .

So is it any wonder why we can&#39;t please everyone&#33; :BangHead:

Well, what is the local weather report on the ground????

The NOAA says 4"-8" of existing snow cover. Could it be for real?? Who knows? Someone please tell us.

This is supposed to be a link to a current snow cover map, I hope it works here. Copy and paste, it worked for me.

Even if there isn&#39;t any snow, is the area muddy??

Not much mud.
It&#39;s pretty much all sand in that area. It can be mushy but not muddy.

So I don&#39;t like snow or cold weather , I don&#39;t recall asking anyone to turn the heat up or clear the trails of all snow . I did not ask anyone to change anything , in fact I will not show up therefore the snow is not an issue to me . If others like the snow great ..... another interesting fact is I fit better in my jeep with the doors off or atleast windows down and cold snowy weather is not conducive to this type driving.

Bottom line is I like the summer seasons, this has no bearing on others likes or dislikes .

No hard feelings but your quoting me in this context puts me at one end of the scale and 95 geo (I believe your son) at the other ...maybe you did this as a funny and that&#39;s how I&#39;ll classify it ....... everything is cool

First off 95Geo is my son, It doesn&#39;t change the fact I was just trying to demonstrate a point. One in which you obviously did get. I was only trying to put into context the range of wants and desires this Association is facing. The age differences and interests vary from soup to nuts. Stockers to rock crawlers. The whole structure the Assn is being changed from is a club based group to a individual based group was done at the insistance of the &#39;New Breed&#39; of user. The instant gratification, want it now generation.
Whether this group steps up to the task remains to be seen.
I&#39;m glad to hear you took it in the light it was presented in.

I saw Jim&#39;s comment as simply pointing out our member&#39;s vast range of interests.

Speaking of that, seems to me that the GEO has a wierd aversion to mud&#33; :bigemo_harabe_net-59:

Everytime we talk about wheelin, he starts to whine about getting a little dirty..................... :D

I don&#39;t really think you hafta worry about snow up there...as its been 34-40 degrees and raining all week here.

Ken, you should just wheel that ZJ, and leave the YJ at home.........someone needs to actually wheel their ZJ

I&#39;ll be wheeling my WJ ... however, it trys to stay away from deep mud and deep snow ... but what would you expect from a mostly stock Grand. But we like it anyways, it gets us there and back and we always have FUN&#33;

Saturday we are celebrating my dads 79th birthday so the wheelin trip is out but I&#39;ll be up for the sunday meeting. My dad is getting old and I can not miss any opportunity to celebrate with him ..... my boys even gave up the monsterjam to sing happy birthday to their Grampa.
