    Oh, and I bought a handheld CB radio!! I was sick of all the problems I had with the Cobra handheld all-in-one CB I was using previously. Sometimes it worked, most of the time it didnít transmit well. Hopefully this handheld CB does the trick, no wires to mess with for power!

    Are you thinking maybe not? Or that there might be too much snow? If Yankee might be a bust or on the margin (a very short day), I might be more interested in a closer-to-home trail (Yankee is 2 hr drive).

    I might have one other, new, jeep joining...

    Iím thinking a full day tomorrow Jim! Letís try Yankee hill and see how far we get, then we can explore some other roads to see what they look like - Iím definitely not suggesting a short day . Iíve been holding off all week so I canít wait to get out! Here in Allenspark we got about 3-4 inches. Better than nothing!

    Yankee is over an hour drive for me but I canít think of any other area that could be as much fun - and I donít think we will see too many others being a Wednesday! If we donít get that far I think we could head north on Apex and see now far we can go up that way! Hopefully we can make it to the top of Yankee hill itself, perhaps the snow covering the iced up sections will help give us more traction..... Ive run up there many times in the middle of winter and sometimes the ice stops everyone well short, but sometimes you can get all the way even in the middle of winter. Canít wait to find out what tomorrow looks like!
    Jayson, would love to have you join us if you can

    Worst case I don't mind a little winching. Hoping not to have to put my chains on if I can avoid it though but I'll bring them just in case.

    Only slightly related but I did Bunce today with a friend who brought his Quigley 4x4 E250 van out. That thing was super impressive but it was quite slick today and a lot rougher and icier than last time I did Bunce. Wonder if Yankee hill will be the same?

    moose PM'd me and is considering joining - but was asking if it would be good for him to join (vehicle type). I said yes, it's more of the attitude to try. If nothing else, he or anyone other one person could jump in with me.

    I'll bring traction boards, kinetic recovery rope, and two sets of chains for 35's. We'll see what's needed...
