Hmm, looks like someone needs to get this party started.

Here are some wheeling pictures.

This was 3 weekends ago on an afternoon trail run near Marquette. The '67 FJ40 broke trail followed by me in my 80.

Check out the snow depth, I had to dig my door out so I could open it, yep, stuck.

Here's the line up, taking a break and giving some directions to some lost snowmobilers.

Here is the view of following the 40 as it blasted along through 3 feet of snow.

Forward progress is halted, she's smiling because she just hung out staying nice and warm listening to music while we pondered the situation.

The 40 taking a breather, amazingly not getting stuck all afternoon.

Here's another angle, those are 35's to give you some reference.

Pausing to let some of the other vehicles catch up.

Amazingly we only got stuck bad enough to need to be tugged out twice that day.

This was from 2 weekends ago. This was a Jeep run that I went out with, so you'll have to forgive the occasional Jeep shot.

I ended up towing the YJ behind me about 3 miles of the toughest part of this trail after his front actuator failed.

My 33's were small compared to the 35's and 38's that some of these rigs had, along with full lockers. Some more beautiful April weather here in the Upper Peninsula!

Slow going, the snow was too deep and even the biggest rigs couldn't get through this section, we had to turn around.

Thought I'd add a shot of what my truck looks like when not buried in the white stuff.
