I leave for there on Tuesday with my snowmachines in tow, including my new Bearcat 2000 widetrack. Yes, I bought a new sled; the mogully ride in th...

Re: March 2017 - Newsletter and Alpine Creek Ride

Can someone give me Phillip's user ID here or PM me his phone number? Have a few questions to ask about that weekend. A schedule switch looks like it will enable me to go, pending vacancy at the lodge :thumbleft:.

Re: Feb 12, Sweetheart Ride

Ride Cancel Issues: If the temperature at the airport is -10 below at 8:00 AM the ride will be canceled. To get weather information you call 458-3745 and hit 1,1,1,1 Our ride list says -20 below, but the river runs are considerable colder, so we'll be using -10 for this one. I should also add that ...

From fairbankstirediron.org: "Due to irregular and unsafe ice conditions, the 2016 Tired Iron events will not be held on t...

Re: Tolovana Hot Springs 2015

I'm still in. The Arctic Can't is still experiencing gremlins, so I will be borrowing a '95 Skandic from a coworker. It doesn't get ridden too much so I will be trying it out before Friday. Plus space to haul gas and gear :thumbleft: For food I'd be willing to bring some Halibut steaks from a charte...

Re: Exhaust work

Thanks for the help guys! I have found a repair kit on Ebay that should work. Summit, if you could pm me your contact info, I'll try to get in touch with you in the next week or two as parts come in.
