When are you guys going? How much snow do they have compared to Tog? A buddy and I are planning on driving out to Tog next week around Wednesday. We have one sled and will be renting another. Would might be interested in changing plans if it would work out. Always up for new things and would be great to hook up with some more riders. We're from the twin cities area. Give me some more details or a contact #

The wives never really get it, do they? Mine just shakes her head and says, "Getting stuck, digging, getting stuck, digging" shakes her head and says, "Whatever" and walks away. Looking back over her shoulder and then says, "Have fun" that is my clue to head for the door.

Below I have copied a post from DooTalk. Member, Rev Barron has put out some safety kits in the snowy's. Marked with gps coordinates.

Chuck does this with his own $$'s, effort and time with out asking for anything in return.....Lets help keep his cause going, join MomsMotorSports.Com by donating products or $$'s for the kits. See information at the end of this post.

I put these out last year and starting to get them back out again this year. Already have had 3 people spends some nights in the Snowy Range.
Feel free to put these coordinates in your GPS and if you have an emergency you can hopefully make it to one of them. I have put together six kits and will post the rest of the coordinates as I get them placed.

I paid for all this stuff myself (well almost, as I did get a few Snowest members that kindly sent me a few things last year), so if you use something please replace it when you can or let me know if you can't and I'll get it back in there.

Safety Kit Coordinates:

1st one is in the group of pines to the northeast corner of Trail "T" and "Q" at: N 40 deg 47.624' W 105 deg 54.260'

2nd one is in the old cabin off the trail "T" at: N 41 deg 16.937' W 106 deg 17.276'
This is the cabin just to the south of the Nelson Safety Hut east of Trail W. See pictures. It's behind the wood in the corner.

3rd Kit: Same as last year, right off 130 at: N 41 deg 19.807' W 106 deg 21.546'

4th Kit: At the end of the roller coaster right off the trail here: N 41 deg 23.290' W 106 deg 17.916'

5th Kit: Behind Sand Lake Outhouse here: N 41 deg 27.353' W 106 deg 16.392'

Each tote has:
10 ft tow rope, zip ties, duct tape, needle nose pliers, slip-joint pliers, multi-tip screwdriver, steel wire, matches, fire log starter, compass, emergency blanket, hatchet, bunjies, small container of 2 stroke oil, two BPR9ES spark plugs, toilet paper, maps, aluminum cup, 9hr candle, LED flashlight w/extra batteries, two 5x7 plastic tarps, pair of cotton work gloves, pocket hand wamers, small first aid kit, beef jerkey, and a can of Spam. Also nearby will be a 2 gal can of premium fuel.

YOU NAILED IT.....$750 covers everything but your sled gas and libations.
The lodge is around 8300ft, ride up from there. Up to around 11,000.

Well, most wives never get it. My wife on the other hand looks forward to our trips out west and talks about them all the time. We'll be heading to Cooke City in 2 weeks from tomorrow and she's pretty excited that her sled is about half done being built. I should get the new skis tomorrow, the suspension parts should get back from the powder coater this week and she's already seen the new shorty seat, adjustable risers and all orange hood. Her M8 is getting done in the nick of time.

Called out to the lodge yesterday. Not only is the early powder making great riding conditions, it is already basing up. The groomer is even out smoothing the mountain 'highways' that lead to the real riding.
