The snow is awesome, over the hood stuff all day, with a nice stuck fest at the tail end of the day. We arrived in Cooke City about 2 am, unloaded all the sleds and gear, crashed until it was time for breakfast, then hit the Pow.

The motors are for the sea and snow guys. Actually we have enough parts and spare sleds for the just in case senerio. 6 days something is bound to break on something. I am starting to see that the serious Mtn. Crowd do not really run a low grade of oil such as S&S. I have not seen it being used at Tog., Snowies or Cooke City. Unless they are rebottling it into Amsoil bottles. This has been my observation and it looks to be correct. I donít care either way. I see revkev can post pics so I will really on him for that. I am just happy I can email home. (No cell towers here) gotta go a guy just hit a buffalo with his car WOW!

They are taking great care of us. Good food, nice clean warm rooms, they ordered me a new Fly matte blk. Helmet and it came over night. They go all out for their customers! I will be back. Momsmotorsports has done a fine job getting us here and setting it all up. Jacob has been doing a fine job as host.

The conditions have been as phenomenal as the meals and hospitality at Bear Claw Bob's and the Super 8. Bob sure is the best host in the business. With services like rentals, heated garage with tools and a wealth of local knowledge.

Ride Report......
on Sunday 1-23 we rode around the burn of area close to town, tons of fresh untracked powder. Yesterday, 1-24 we headed south out of Cooke for a 30 mile ride to top of the world wyoming around the Beartooth Pass with a fresh 8 inches around town. The snow was bumper deep and firming up, we jumped rocks, stumps and had an afternoon stuck fest. Today, 1-25 we dropped Daisy after helping Bob recover an abandoned sled in the bush. The fresh snow from this week is still sitting on top but, the lower layers have settled and are firming up. Avy danger is now down to moderate. Looks like we can climb some big hills if the sun will pop out for us before we leave.

Helmet is fine, got such a sweet deal on the fly helmet from Bob that I had to have it. The kid who hit the buffalo was pretty shook up. He was very concerned for the buffalos well being. He said it was injured. He was calling 911 trying to get a police report for the acident and was hoping someone would look for the buffalo. It happened inside Yellowstone park. On his way to Cooke City to snow board.
