Mounting a snowplow on my rock crawler!

Living up on the mountain and snow is now a part of my life for months of the year. Last year I was not prepared so this year I decided to build a snow plow for my rock crawler, the Pathmaker Rig. Using a rusty old hitch and some welding wire I fabbed up an 84″ K2 Avalanche snowplow for my rig and even got a chance to test it out!

With the rain pouring down and all the boys busy I hopped into the Pathmaker rig with Mrs. Pathmaker and we headed to the Heights to cut some more new trails on the property.

Wheeling Season Opener

Wheeling Season Opener

The Rains have finally arrived...

After a long dry summer offseason, which we were supposed to use for wrenching projects and DIDN'T, the rain has arrived and its time to get started on another wheeling season.
With the Pathmaker still down needing head gaskets (see above about wrenching projects I didn't do) I hopped in with Shaun in the Mercedes diesel Toyota and joined Jim and Dan in their Toyota buggies and Kevin in his Suzuki buggy and we headed out for another day of backcountry wheeling and BBQing as we like to do.
