Out cutting some of next years firewood.  The snow was 20 inches deep and it was a good thing I was pointed down hill so I could get started moving after filling the sled.  Plenty of weight in the sled and I was afraid of getting stuck in the field on my way out.  Too much on the gas and I started sinking and slowing down.  Overall it was a good trip to the woods.

Very nice.  I am envious.  We haven't seen snow in southern NY since before Christmas.

I will admit to having a smirk on my face as I pulled up to the wood splitter. ;D

Sad news with this picture,  Greg Ponslet aka bornagainkawi has pass away. He was one of the good guys and is the guy in the center in the orange shirt.  The picture is from the cancer charity auction at Waconia in  2017.  We used his garage to do all the disassembly and re assembly.  I will miss him.

While sobering, thank you for this news.  It wasn't that long ago that I shipped him a few windscreens.

I checked the logs and Greg was on Kawasakitrax the day he passed.  Kawaholic to the very end!

I recall swapping parts with him a few times over the years.  Sad news, RIP Greg.

Braapfest 2023.  I and my brother are in the oval running the 1 lunger races.  The cats racing are Wankels.

Looks like fun.  Nice drone work.

Braapfest has been the highlight of my winters for a few years.

The 81 had another trouble free trip and is now resting on it's happy spot.

The snow this year has been EPIC!!  Ran out of places to put it with the storm before this one.  So--lemon aid from that lemon.

Impressive snow pile.  Impressive sleds.  Are you starting to take bets on when the sled will hit the ground?

This one goes back to 2007.  This 78 Invader I nicknamed "Clumper" due to it kicking in at 6000 rpm and it runs really good.
