Jan 1st Lots of Snow & Good To Go!

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Hello all.  What better way to ring in the new year than an awesome midnight run on sled!   To ring in the new year a friend of mine and I took a midnight run into Hodges and out 10 Mile road.    The roads and trails are in excellent shape.  Today, we made it to the top of Hodges no sweat.  We didn’t go right to the Ice Castle due to lack of time but it looked good thanks to the last storm which fell down straight and heavy.  I haven’t been to the Gaff yet but I imagine it is excellent going with lots of snow.   As for ice, I am unsure of the bigger inside lakes but we have been on the ice now since early December.  I will be checking that soon though.  There doesn’t seem to be as much snow on the North side of Hodges but plenty on the South side as you can see from the pictures.  As for ditch-banging, well you have to be careful until we get more but you don’t have to stick to the roads only.  So if you want to blow the dust out of your sled and treat yourself to a stay at a luxurious accommodation, load her up and come on out!  Happy New year to you all!  I gotta go burn some more gas!
