      Kinda excited to head to Denver tomorrow. It's really damn cold right now, but snow is nice. Near freezing temps with rain (PDX at the moment) just kinda sucks.

              Nice! that is definitely on my to-do list. I basically only turn on my lights at night to not get pulled over. Thats all they're good for

                      Picture dump from today...


                      This makes me jealous. these kids were having way more fun than i was....i miss when snow days meant you'd get to play all day...



                      This kid was flyin', literally. caught air then landed on his rope and ate snow. got up laughing and ran back up the hill.


                      My Honda was a trooper. Took about 45min this morning to get to this point after defrosting and chipping away at the 1/2in of ice it was encased in after last night's freezing rain...




                      Went to the park to run around and be alone. Super nice out there in the snow. It makes everything SILENT when no one's around...i love it.





                      the ice was not solid enough to hold me. had to drive home with a wet foot and change my socks...


                      Snapped some pics of my beater before leaving.






                      As i was about to take off a lady in a Merc GL350 tried to turn around in the deep stuff with less than adequate tires and started spinning tire. So i offered to help her out. Got the shovel, dug a path out and hooked up my tow rope and pulled her out. Wasn't too bad. She was very thankful and tried to pay me. Declined the offer wished her well and went on my way.

                      Here's the Merc after she parked it. She let me jump in the driver's seat and try to rock it out, which was futile. I'm surprised it couldn't get itself out, even with 4wd. The gear selector is all electronic and confusing. Couldn't find low low. Tried my best but had to pull her out...



                      Got back up Aubrey butte without any issues. Still impressed by this little Honda. Always fun to scoot around in the snow with this thing...even if it plows sometimes.

                      Anyone else play in the snow today?
