Two 4am wake up calls, 6 hours of sleep in 48 hours, one busted ass sled = one of the best trips I have been on this year. The last two days have been brutal. Up at 4am, out in the backcountry till almost 7pm or later. Long days to say the least, but the shots have been worth it. On the first day, within the first hour, Kramer's sleds' brakes went out and he crashed into a big tree at the bottom of a big hill. The recoil on the starter went out in the crash as well as the right side trailing arm. No big deal. Kramer clutch start, while wheeler works the gas.
It was Utarded in Utah today
A socked in weather pattern all day meant there would be no
shooting today. At least it's snowing again. A washed up crew
of industry insiders took full advantage of this "down day"
Somewhat against my will I'm now riding an '08 Ski Doo 800 146 track. Totaled the '07 in Silverton about two weeks ago. First day out ripping the new sled today with my buddy Jon. Good snow, but after colliding with a rock at 30mph and being wipped off in an "America's Wildest Video's" fashion two weeks ago, I'm a bit more warry of what lays beneath the snow. I just wish someone got the shot.

My Buddy Jon, ripping......
