rumrunn6 Winter is coming back !

The crazy Christmas season is over for me, and half day Fridays are back on for 2023. So, for my first half day Friday I get greeted with a nice wet wintery mix. Was great to get out and enjoy my regular winter playground for 2+ hours of fun. Rumrunn6 you need to come back out to my region for a winter ride this year. I promise no little puddles to ride thru (lol), trust me I promise.

OK wait a minute, I'll be right there!



gorgeous video! & during active snow, the best! I had to work but I got out the day after, on Saturday. lots falling off the trees, so it almost felt light active snow. you got more than us, as usual. snow-wise the 10 day forecast doesn't look promising. but we know we'll get some fun in between now & March, hehe

btw - didn't see this thread until now. next time put rumrunn6 in the body of your post. don't know if you need the "@" symbol. but putting it in the thread title didn't notify me. but thank you!

When it comes to posting stuff, I only know one way, can't teach this old dog new tricks (lol). It is just a matter of time before the cold stretch and snow move in and the real fun can begin. Most of this ride was a rain snow mix, it didn't switch over to all snow until I had about 3/4 of my ride done. Still fun getting out and playing in it though.
