I would love to ride there. The post appears above Bman's for you because you have it set that way. Look at the right top of the screen right under the "New Topic" links and "Post a Reply" It must be set on "Show original post then newest replies" Just change that around how you like it.
By george you've got it Erick! I've never seen that feature before...cool!
You should take an extra long weekend off and come out West! The conditions and scenery are truely unbelievable! Most of us are a bunch of hackers just out to have some fun. Now that I've found your forum, I'll be sure and let you know when we are planning a trip. If you can get as far as Calgary, I'm sure we can arrange for you to catch a ride with us and give you a break from driving. We can make Revy in 4-5 hours, depending on road conditions.
BTW, it may be a good idea to start a forum discussing upcoming sledding trips. It would allow people an opportunity to meet and explore new riding areas. Just a thought.
Anyone have any good methods on getting out of being stuck like that? I have gotten in deep a time or two, but all it took was a lift of the skis to get out. I'm sure it gets tougher than that when the sleds get bigger.
Happened to me and a buddy last year.
We had to pack down the snow under the sled and about 20' in front of the sled to make a runway so we could get up speed. It s_cks when the snow is chest deep! Took us about 45 minutes.
Buddies are definitely good to have around. It took us about 1 hour to get everyone out of that little bowl. The sidehill was pretty steep, so it was difficult to get any speed. Just had to go around a few times. Pulling the front end around and lifting the track out of the hole you dug is about the only way I know. If your stuck pointing straight up a steep hill (make sure you pin it to bury the back end!), pull the front end around. DO NOT lift the track out of the hole or you'll get run over!
Hmmmm, on board winch...in Shade Tree catalog (no im not pushing that mag) they have a winch set up that you simply hook a strap through the track windows and the other end to a tree or the like. Then you simply and slowly rotate the track and as the track rotates it tightens up the strap and winds it around the track pulling you out of your "sticky situation" lol.
any ways its called RESC-YOU WINCH and sells for $49.99 (u.s. dollars)
Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.
