    If you have some really wide/ mud tires they'll help. Oh and lower the pressure a little, too.

    And of course, watch out for the idiots in the SUVs who think just because they have all wheel drive they brake better in the snow, too. I am always amazed after the first big storm how many new SUVs you see off the side of the road on the highways...

    Here it has bypassed "fun" and went straight to "ridiculous". I almost ALMOST took the MTB today, but was glad I didn't when I almost got my pickup stuck leaving the driveway.

    There's like a foot of snow. Suck suck suckage.

    as the gatekeeper at Oz said, "Why didn't you say so? That is a horse of an entirely different color."

    Have you ever tried cross country skiing? Much less impact than running, good clyde sport.

    Oh man, that's all I need, another expensive hobby... LOL!

    Not enough snow here to warrant that. We only get days like this a couple times a year, but man, when we get them they sure are a PITA.

    I have five acres of flat pasture..no SUVs there, just a few llamas, the occasional coyote, deer, bobcat and cougar!
