Hopefully we'll get another run up here. I wont have time at all this month with work and family functions. After the New Year I'd like to. Tim will have to get over his being scared of colder weather and take a day off work.

We'll probably have to wait at least until next month, to get a few more storms in. We do want it to be challenging right?

I'm not scared of colder weather, but I'm not taking any days off to go play in the snow.  We can go on a Sunday.

And before the thought comes to you, no we're not driving down there either.  :flipoff:

But if you want to start your own snow run, feel free.

I'll follow along, in this thread, LOL. I'm not going to say I will go for sure, but I'll think about it. I'm not into snow anymore. I like being all warm and fuzzy! :D

IF I decide to go, should I have chains? Obviously I have 4wd, but not sure if chains are something I should start looking for?

You don't need chains. You'll want to air down a little, so a good compressor would be good. And what I mean about good, is one you don't run from the cigar lighter. It's something you should have anyway. :thumbsup:

Something like this one:

Oh, Jeez. Now this is going to turn into a compressor thread. :shaking:

MET(Mormon Emigrant Trail) is supposed to be good. I haven't done it, but other guys here have.

Cool. I have a compressor and it hooks to the battery. It successfully aired up my tires the last time I went wheelin'. :D

I also have a set of tire deflators.

I'm a full on 4 wheeler now you know? LOL :D
