Love My ATV!

2 posts in this topic

So I had a long week at work last week and was looking forward to a relaxing weekend at the cabin. I was dead tired when I got there about 10:00 Friday night, only to find that we had about 11" of wet, heart-attack snow covering the road in. I was able to get through it, only to find there were also 2' drifts covering our driveway. I could see my sanctuary through the trees, but couldn't get to it.

Our driveway is about 400' long, I had a bunch of stuff to unload and I didn't want to leave the truck in the road. So, exhausted; I walked up, put my boots on and fired up the ATV. Within 30 minutes I had the driveway cleared, the truck was unloaded and I was sitting in front of the fire with a cool beverage.

The next day I went out and within 2 hours had the entire 1.5 mile stretch of road cleared, as well as the neighbor's driveway. Besides a truck, there was nothing that could've cleared that heavy snow.

Not only was I able to enjoy the much need relaxation I had been craving, but; with the warm weather we had, the entire gravel road and driveway were drained of runoff and dry by the time I left.

It's easy to take them for granted, but situations like this really make me appreciate my machine.

We all have stories like this - Just thought I'd share this one.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
