Ok so I went from 3 weeks ago, having open mudholes and poor base making the trail impassible to having 6 foot drifts making the trails impassible. I guess that's what happens when you get 54" of snow over 2 days with 40 mph winds. I'm always the guy who says, no way I can make it. Not this time. There is literally too much snow/wind get through some of this stuff with my 1" paddle.

I'm pretty sure that most people would kill for that kind of snow right about now, from the sounds of it your going to need a 163" track with a 2.5" paddle track in lower MI...

Don't worry cat, once the trails broken and groomed, you will have plenty to ride on the rest of the year. Better than having 3 inches all winter long.

I went for a ride last night and was very surprised to see noone had broke our trail through the backwoods. Once I got a few hundred feet back not only did i understand why noone broke the trail, I was very happy I longtracked![;)] Was a night and day difference between my 121" track and the 136" ripsaw didn't mind breaking trail at all. It's been a few years since I've done some nice deep riding like that, especially in lower michigan.

And here in stupid central NY that I can't WAIT to find a better job and get out of BTW.... we have a whopping 5 inches on the ground tops and the wind is blowing it everywhere! I see lots-o-grass

In camden ny we had about a foot until the lake effect snow hit yesterday. Now we've gained about three feet. It's crazy and there's still more coming. Good thing I've got the inch and a quarter or I'd have no chance to ride. Im going to my father's this weekend so maybe/hopefully the groomer will be out so we can go riding and do some boondocking.

That is what I like to hear. Looks like I'll get my chance at 4'+ of snow this weekend. Most I've had the 136 x 1.5 in was about 2' so far and it didn't even have to try for that.
