Looking at going out to Wyoming with these guys. They haul you along with your sleds and gear in a converted semi. Wondering if anyone has done this and if they'd recommend it or not.

YES YES YES. I went last year. Want to go this year but with the wife due with our second baby not sure if it will work. I will however be back on board that bus. The guys are great, and really want you to have fun you also have to remember, you have a person to show you around the area that has great knowledge of where to go where to stay out of and where the freshness is. If you don't like their style jacob will gladly mark up a map and tell you were to go. I would highly recomend them and can't wait to go back.
As for the ride out it is long. But not as long as if you had to drive it yourself, when you are tired sleep when you are hungry eat and when you are thirsty drink.
Have fun. We Did

one other thing. Jacob mom is jmom800x on this forum and dootalk. Watch his posts check out his videos with Rob, they keep me from going crazy here in flatlandville. I love watching Rob's flatlander updates. I always lookforward to an update and check for them every morning with my coffee

You definitely need to go. My old man turned 60 last year and that is what he wanted for his birthday was a trip out west. It started as just him and I going out and soon enough, we had a group of 11 going out with Mom's. 8 of us rode in the truck and 3 of the guys drove out. We ABSOLUTELY LOVED it!!! We got home and signed up again with 12 of us going this year to Ten Mile.
First, Mrs Mom and Jacob's better half are incredible cooks. Breakfast and dinner every day and let me tell you, I was never hungry. Just great food. Rick and Jacob took great care of us out there since it was our first trip out west. We rode with them a few days to get the hang of it and then they gave us some ideas on areas we could hit on our own. For the most part, we stayed out of trouble on our own, just one little incident where we thought we may spend the night on the side of the mountain. Thanks again guys for coming out and getting us... You'll find that the guys on these trips are true diehard snowmobilers and will go WAY out of their way to help a fellow snowmobiler.
Just go!! If you like boondocking, you will love it. Plan to get stuck though, if you don't, you are not trying hard enough.

I go on 4 trips a year with Mom,s Motorsports, and would highly recommend it, it is a great way to economically head West, and leave the driving to someone else, you kick back and watch dvd's or sleep. All the lodges, have excellent accommodations, and Meals are awesome.

I have been on about 6 trips with Mom's. Maybe more. Sometimes they haul my sled and I fly, sometimes I ride in the truck and just kick back and sleep, sometimes they haul my sled out and I drive. It is a good deal. Jacob, Paula and Rick Mom are great People, they treat you like family. I could not do the amount of west riding trips I do if it wasn't for them. Note: this is not an advertisement. I just want to share this with my fellow Jdeer's to advance the sport.

is the price the same if you have to drive and they haul your sled and other stuff?

Our group has been on the Ricky Bobby aka "Mom's" a few times. It is basically what got us going out west in the first place. They will definitely take care of you and the trips are very affordable. If we didn't get hooked from going out with them and drop tons of money on newer trucks, trailers etc we would definitely ride again.

You get 150 dollars off the per person package price if we haul your sled, all your gear, and tools too. You just meet us at the lodge.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

i expect that the anyone that goes with Mom's should have their Avalanche training and all the tools that go with riding out there, correct? wonder how well my x-fire would do out there. Would this be good for newb's?

Moms is a great way to go, Went to cooke city earlier this month. We picked up 3 guys in Rapid River MN I believe. If you haven't been out West yet, this would make a great 1st experience for you. I forgot my beacon and a few other things, rented one from Jacob. If you haven't had a class yet, there are lots video's online to get you started. They will take care of you, everyone helps each other out, like we had been riding together for years.
your crossfire will do fine, remove the swaybar, get a set of 68 gram weights and 36deg helix. if you have the cash get a track too. I have an 09 141 with 2.25 powerclaw does pretty good, buddy has 136x2" challenger works good but the longer tracks help when learning to ride in the powder.
Contact Jacob I think they had openings for pickups in MN for 2012

How was the ride in the camper part of the rig? Similar to flying?

How was the ride in the camper part of the rig? Similar to flying?I am in here as I type, going down the road. Just had breakfast in Fargo. We are watching "Ground hog day" on the flat screen with surrond sound. The airplane doesnt have that. I slept flat in the upper bunk for 9 hours. Planes don't have that either. Also no delayed flights and catching a transfer. This year Moms added new seating, refrigerator and bathroom upgrades. Smooth enough ride to type all this.

Is Mom's pricing the same for all of the Western destinations? We got back last week from driving out to the snowies, which made me want to look into letting someone else do the driving next time. We went to the snowies because it was closer, but wouldn't mind a few more hours of drive-time if someone else was doing the driving.
02-27-2012, 04:53 PM
I did it last year with these guys too. Awesome group of guys to go with. Seemed to be a long hike in the big rig but you can sit back, drink beer, watch movies, and sleep while someone else is doing the driving. You may come back 10 lbs heavier from all the great food they cook up for ya. Seems like the pricing was pretty much the same, might want to check out there website or email Jacob for more details. Have fun out there this weeks guys. I'll be getting there on Friday and would appreicate and updates/pics on conditions.

I have traveled West on my own in the past. The pricing with Mom's is excellent. We are planning our first trip with Mom's in a couple of weeks and have been talking about utilizing them for a long time. This year a couple of us Flatlanders bought mountain sleds, renting can get pricey, and if we are going to go West yearly might as well have our own sleds.

Just go for it...I am...couldn't get my buddies on the same page to do a trip then I heard about Momsmotorsports and now I'm going on the island park mid march trip solo... everything Ive heard about them has been nothing but great and to be honest probly my best move being that I've never ridden mountains before and these guys got a lot of experience out there
I priced out 4 of us from mpls to snowies...gas food lodging and could barely do it cheaper now factor in you don't have to drive or cook you really can't beat it just wish I could have gotten one of my buddies to come with but oh well
Anyone from here goin on the march 18th trip?

MOMS took me to Cooke in January. Everyone had a great time even with the low snow at the time. We broke up into managable groups, make sure you bring a radio, makes it a lot easier to find each other. It was like riding with long time
friends hope to do it again next year. With Rick, Kevin and Jacob driving, it was a pretty relaxing trip. I highly recommend Traveling with MOMS:)

I just sent you a PM, check your box. There is a group of four of us from two hours north of you going on the second IP trip. We can always use extra hands for digging, you will get stuck.

Went out with MOMS this year for the first time, last year I flew out to Jackson and rode Alpine. I would have to say that going out with MOMS was much easier, cheaper and less hassle than flying. Plus I got to take my own sled renting can add quite a bit of money to the trip. I brought my own drinks cheap, paid $9 a drink at Airport lounges. I brought my own tools, spare parts, oil and 2 large bags for no extra cost. Watched DVD's on 2 tv's, slept on a very soft bed laying down, did not have to worry about breakdowns on tow vehicle. I rode 5 days this year going with MOMS cheaper than I rode 3 days renting and flying last year. The food is outstanding, you will not be hungry after eating. Not much more to say just GO RIDE

How does that work with food? I figured that the food in the package depended on the lodge you ended up at? (I suppose I could direct my questions straight to Mom's but thought I'd rather just ask on here and get more people's perspective on it). I like this idea the more I keep thinking about it...

(I suppose I could direct my questions straight to Mom's but thought I'd rather just ask on here and get more people's perspective on it). I like this idea the more I keep thinking about it...It depends ln the location you go to as how and who prepares meals, (I gained weight last trip with them). IP and 10 mile trips Paula Mom cooks for the group, Breakfast and dinner. We never come back at lunch time and lunch isn't part of the pkg. but if you do Paula usually has a crook pot of chilli going or something. If you are going to Cooke City you will eat at the Bear Claw Bakery, breakfast is off the menu, whatever you want and dinner consists of Steak, fish Chicken, Lasagna, etc. something different each night. and dessert to die for! Tog. is on the Tog. Pkg. and Lava mtn. trip can vary depending on how you want to do it for meals. Lodge or cook your own. this IP trip I am shipping my sled out and driving the VW deisel out at 42 mpg with 2 other guys. I am lodging and meals with Moms. Rick, Jacob and Paula Mom are extended family to me. They will make you family too! This is my 7th trip with them.

Thanks for the answers. I am definitely looking into them for next season or the one after.
