    This was a fun day with @COMiamiFan and his family, and my baby boy.
    I think this trail would be considered easy but, with yesterday's conditions it became a moderate trail because of snow. The snow gathered pretty deep in all of cuts and draws. To be expected. The trail is almost 10 miles out. We completed about 8.5 miles of it.
    We learned a few things as well. The snow will take where you dont want to go. Steering can be difficult. Wheel spin can work for you or against you. Snatching lines and tow straps will be needed. Learn when to keep traction control on and learn when to turn it off. Have kitty litter and shovels.
    Slow is fast fast is slow. I'm sure Jose will add some things as well about this.
    I will also add my Auburn Pro kicked ass. It made some things a little easier.

    I would also add Maxtraxx may be in my near future. I did not air down, could it have helped? Maybe. But didn’t know snow would be this deep. We had two shovels so sped up the process in clearing snow from under the truck.

    I also downloaded and used GAIA GPS on an IPad. It was only the free version but worked great. Gonna keep playing with the App before I decide to upgrade to the paid subscription.

    I know the area. I regularly work in Divide/Guffey area. It’s beautiful area but remote. Definitely want to be ready for anything.

    My folks live about 20 miles from where we were. Maybe in the next couple of years me and the wife will be moving up to Woodland Park or Divide.

    Exactly!

    Then again, if I moved in, then the name and population won’t fit

    Is there even enough room for another place on that lot?

    I heard a “papi”. Sounds like my house.:D Also, while you may claim White is the fastest color, it’s also the color that appears to get stuck first.:eek2:
