04-08-2009, 09:09 PM
maybe we can get you and your crew and them crazy Minnesotans out west for a weekend of filming. hahahahaha
I bet Dave's xp would look good on video..
04-08-2009, 10:55 PM
I hear ya on that one Skylar. Sweet vid Pat! I doo think that adding a couple doo's in the video would make it that much sweeter though!! haha. Nice job on the filming. Would be a blast if we could get the stars to align and meet up out there some time.
04-09-2009, 02:12 PM
Pat, That bit (1:46-2:06) with you following the looonng side hill was an awesome angle! Great job on the finished product!
04-10-2009, 10:46 AM
Pat, the answer is "yes". Stay in Jackson and we can ride one of 2 areas get to 10,000 and blow your mind with the scenery. The hard part is if its not a bluebird sky its a waste of time. How do you plan bluebird? If we do hit it right I can't tell you the on top of the world beauty we get to see. More later...
04-10-2009, 12:44 PM
Great video Pat! Can't wait to see some more next year http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif
04-10-2009, 03:55 PM
YES TO ONE MORE TRIP!!!! we have been trying to figuire out who wants to go one more time. Fergy and I are in. Just trying to figuire out who else and details. But, YES, we want to see snow one more time this year.
04-10-2009, 04:35 PM
Awesome vid Pat. We gotta ride next year.

04-11-2009, 09:49 AM
Rusty - As much as I hate to say it... this season is over for me. Unless you're talking November/December 2009 then I'm out.
04-11-2009, 09:49 AM
Cuzz, sorry I missed you in Centennial. We had great snow. Hopefully you found good snow. Pat, next year we'll have to hook up again at Tog and put Carter through the wringer...
Carter, I hope you got caller I.D. LOL.
04-11-2009, 01:25 PM

04-14-2009, 11:07 AM
04-14-2009, 12:29 PM
Winter just doesn't want to release her grip out there... Wish that I was there! MKE sucks this time of the year...
04-14-2009, 01:37 PM
I am going to have to make this my goal to at lest get out there once a year. Nice vid!
04-14-2009, 01:44 PM
Is there anywhere you could rent a sled out there if yours isn't a "real" boondockin' sled or is it just crazy expensive? And....would it be as much fun since rentals usually aren't "high perf." machines?
04-15-2009, 10:30 AM
Skidoodood, Your question has many answers. What is your sled? When do you go to the west? Will your sled boondock in certain snow conditions? What do you consider crazy expensive? The stock sleds today actually do a great job. My guide sled for next year will be a 800 Rmk 155x2.4. Nice unit, and bone stock, well sort of..... Your problem will be finding a Doo rental place. Maybe a dlr. close by has a demo you could rent. Research needed. The problem is what will you pay for the fun you seek? Ballpark on rentals seem to be $200 a day. Is 3or 4 days of rental worth the boondocking experience you seek? Start slow, bring your sled and rent one day. If you like it try another, and so on. Or borrow a friends sled. In any case you can find what you want. Its what you will pay. Need more, respond...
04-15-2009, 10:45 AM
You guys see the forecast for Tog for the next few days? http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif
Carter, if you can take pictures if you are out there riding in this expeced new snow, that would rock! And if ya want, e-mail them to me, and I'll post them up.
04-15-2009, 10:46 AM
I currently have an '03 MXZ 700 that I stretched to 136" really set up for trail riding. Haven't been out West (yet) but have wanted to for a long time. In the grand scheme of things, $200/day for a sled that set to run out there isn't all that bad considering redoing my clutching, jetting, only 136" w/1" lug track, not having to trailer it there. Been a trail junkie all my life but really want to get into the backwoods and play areas out there. Doesn't have to be a Doo either. I'm not stuck on one brand. I do own a Cat too (not that that's a bad thing).
04-15-2009, 11:23 AM
Here is the forecast for the Lander area southeast of Dubois. Wow!!
Dood, don't be afraid of a 136 out west. I started there and got hooked and bought the mountain ride. It's the man, not the machine. You will find that you have a lot to learn. It's easier on a mountain sled, but not required for boondockin. Set your expectations though, don't expect to be able to go everywhere with ease that Carter will go.
Today: Snow. High near 29. Breezy, with a southeast wind between 18 and 21 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total daytime snow accumulation of 5 to 9 inches possible.
Tonight: Snow. Low around 20. Blustery, with a north northeast wind 11 to 14 mph becoming north northeast between 19 and 22 mph. Winds could gust as high as 31 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 18 to 24 inches possible.
Thursday: Snow. High near 28. North northeast wind between 16 and 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 11 to 17 inches possible.
04-15-2009, 11:29 AM
34 to 50 inches of snow by Friday is enough to make me think about another trip west. Uggggh!
04-15-2009, 08:12 PM
as Carter said you would be fine in march snow and for dec or Jan snow you will get thru it but will see were a longer track would be fun, Togwotee rents everything from trail sleds "I guess they have a great trail system"SO iM TOLD, they rent up to a m8 for "boondocking" at TOG you can get a guide and take a day of trails and "off-trail" or you can head right into the back country.
you can fly right into Jackson hole and the lodge will pick you up and with the "all-inclusive" you get cabin,sled,food,guide all you have to do is get their. good times..
ask for Carter he seems to be a good guide. bhawwwaaaahahahahahhaha
yes--yes I did and we are trying to get out thieir one more time before summer..
how you doing? how the carpet going? busy?
sled still ready to ride?
you heading out west again? or is it over till next year?
DEC? leave the 2 weekend of Dec or leaving Xmas day? over the hood..
Thanks glad we got to ride with ya keep our number for next year..I will send you out a copy this weekend of the video much better quality on DVD than thru YouTube.
04-15-2009, 09:48 PM
Thanks rusty1577. I suppose I just need to call the lodge and they would be able to give me the info I need with pricing, packages, etc? Sounds like something I'll definitely be looking into. Carter seems to be Da Man... I'll have to ask for him...unless you guys got a monopoly on him... http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif
04-15-2009, 10:03 PM
at the very very bottom of the first page you can click on " winter rates"
you cant go wrong at Tog
get ready for your new addiction
04-15-2009, 10:33 PM
Rusty, I'm done for the year, just got done cleaning the sled this evening and taking inventory of things I need to do before next year. But, I had it cleaned and put away once already until last weekend, so, I guess you never know? Time to focus on work for a while. I made 5 trips across the plains this year to ride, so I'm ready to take a break from the drive.
Skidoodood - rode with Brett in March and had a lot of fun with him as well. Carter is popular and hard to book sometimes - he hooked me up with Brett and that was a good thing.
04-15-2009, 11:30 PM
damn Pat! One more time? What's that make it?.......4 times this season?
34 to 50 inches by Friday makes me cringe. Only for the fact that the summit is now stored and sleeping in it's den.
Skylar - Start puttin some extra overtime in so we can do it again next year bud!
Mister deep pockets is what we like to call him.
04-16-2009, 10:33 AM
sled sits in my yard, ready for the next trip. Carpet has me booked through Sunday, and then normal. So i hope to ride next 2 weekends. With all this new snow I'm NOT putting it away til the snow says so. I want to do a day at TOG. and go hunting for new stuff. Kris, thats Brent and not Bret. Also I got a friend going to Tog. today for biz. and I'll see if he can get som pix. More later...
04-16-2009, 10:52 AM

This is the Brett we speak of here

05-07-2009, 10:32 AM

05-12-2009, 10:11 PM
HOT OFF THE PRESS!!
Well it seem that Mr Carter Gertes has been invited to sit on the dunk tank at Haydays this year for the pink ribbon riders thought I would share this with all of you as I know some of you might like to take the opportunity to dunk Carter..lol Mr Kamikaze any comment?
to anyone that might not be familiar with pink riders please check out their site as it is a very good cause.
does anyone know if Haydays will be in the same spot or is at the New place this year?
check out the Thread "classic team names" just below this thread good reading...
05-18-2009, 06:49 PM
hey rusty... are you still in for memorial weekend its comming quick!!
p.s. i know where i'll be at haydays haha
05-19-2009, 10:21 AM
Hopefully Favre will have recovered from his surgery by the time Hay Days rolls around. He could start the season by firing bullets at Carter. I still have some reservations on whether Carter will actually follow through with this, you know how much he hates to get his hair wet.
05-21-2009, 08:36 AM
nope have to go in for knee surgery Doc thinks its a bad idea. seeya at haydays
Hair? what? lol
Farve will have to wait his turn as I will be their bright and early...

10-20-2009, 10:27 AM
Wow, now that's a pretty cool write up!
10-20-2009, 05:46 PM
I think Mac Davis sang a song about guys like Carter, I believe the title was "It's hard to be Humble".
10-20-2009, 06:08 PM
does anybody have the link to the rest of the carter interview. It says read the rest of the interview at snowgoer.com but i looked all over snowgoer and couldn't find it.
10-24-2009, 11:45 AM
I too have looked with no results.I e-mailed someone in snogoer. Hope he responds. I'll pass it on when he does.
10-24-2009, 10:14 PM
I know you had more to say than that?LOL..

01-30-2010, 01:11 PM
Saweeeeeeet video! After a 3-month lull, the thread is back...and I'm glad, because I missed it the first time around.
Carter- Very impressive, keep it up. I missed my chance this year to make it to Tog. Maybe next year.
01-31-2010, 11:35 AM
Carter are you ready???BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP
Didn't you know i was born ready.....Conditions are good now, and I've been practicing, getting ready for 2 months now. By the way, how many, who, and when? See ya soon.
02-02-2010, 10:05 AM

02-03-2010, 10:22 AM
you ok??I hear that 2guys were hurt bad in avy!!!wasnt you??
Not me. 2 guys riding unguided. Believe it or not no broken bones. Lots of bruising and sore. The 2 sleds were smashed to junk. So it appears the two guys were very lucky. Our team went to the rescue and the injured flew out for evaluation. All good!!!!!!!!!
