Our January run was a day trip to West Branch to pre-run the Sno*Blind trails. The group performed trail maintenance and ensured that the trail was passable. Mike G. was leading the group and found a large water hole that was covered with about 6-inches of ice. His Toyota became an ice breaker right before it became the Titanic. He not only broke through the ice but managed to lodge the ice sheet under the rear axle. After a couple of pictures and discussion of how thick the ice was he was strapped backwards by Paul P. under the guidance of Bill W. The group then honed their ice carving skills and chopped the ice up so not to capture the next unsuspecting trail rider.
They were also able to remove a couple of downed trees that were locking the trail The group had fun while performing the trail maintenance. This marks the 23rd year that Mike has attended while Paul has attended about 20 or so. Bill is looking forward to his first Sno*Blind event this year.
