possible machine recovery ride...

#1 Post by ccranor » Sun Feb 15, 2015 9:45 pm

OK. I know a good many of you and have been a member for several years, just don't go to meetings...
Anyway I started to ride a couple of old tundras from Eagle back to Tok a few weeks ago (.. yeah, when it was brutally cold...) anyway the machine I fixed up to ride out threw a track near Chicken and I dropped both machines in Chicken. I need to go back and get them to town. One is already on a siglin sled, so I need another sled for the other machine, and some help to pull it out.... sounds like fun eh? I'll have my Bearcat for one sled. 2 weeks ago the road was in pretty good shape to Chicken, but a couple of pickups had churned their way up it. Park at 12 mile Taylor hwy, and ride the rest. Let me know if anyone wants to help. I'm thinking the last weekend in Feb would be a good time to do it.

That's Trek Over The Top Weekend, they'll be coming back on Sunday and I know a couple FST folks are going and would probable be willing to help.

Might post your phone # for them to call.

well.

Myles Thomas and I drove to Tok Saturday 7 March, and left for Chicken about 4:00 pm from the turnout at 12 mile Taylor Hwy. The weather for the ride was outstanding, clear and warm. We made it to Chicken, found my machines, and had them hitched up and back on the road in 2 hr. Got back to the truck in an hour and half, back at Fast Eddies by 8:30.

We spent the night in Tok, and drove back today, 8 March. All machines back at the barn. Thanks for the help Myles!
