@firstdoo how was your Sunday?
Sunday was ok. Was finally getting my sled legs by the end of the day.

Snow was skinny in the back bowls of Redsands and it was tough to play in the trees. Found dirt once on a good stuck.

Decided to head out at a decent time for the drive home and the Turbo Shredder decided to take one last climb. Hit a rock on the way up (that we both missed a few times) and broke the spindle off at the lower ball joint, broke the steering arm, and twisted the upper a-arm. Took about 2 1/2 hours to limp it back to the truck. Still an ok day though.

haha Friday we rode to the bottom of horseshoe and looked at the willows, they were so thick at the road we just jumped a few road deactivations and turned around at the river... that bridge would sure be handy....
