Which Valley would that be?
Didn't end up grooming today spotted a grouser that had blown a backing plate of and then a trackbelt section with a nasty gash in it. So I went back to bed and then after a nap I went and did some maint on my sled, and went over to the shop and worked (starter replacement, 4x blade hose change) on the other groomer so we can put the new track on it and get both big machines running again. Boys are gunna do a splice patch tomorrow.

The snow yesterday was amazeballs, now its a bit wind driven and harden up


10 deg temp difference inside the bus this morning since I have most of the subfloor installed.. I will be doing a different thread about insulation and such in the near future once I have time to IR temp the inside again in similar conditions to that last time.

Not much to report, I cut down a bunch more strips the other day and began working on reclaiming the hardwood flooring I'll be installing.



I've actually removed the staples from almost all the flooring, then I got to run them through the planer, then myself and the HSM have to decide which topcoat we want.....well what top coat she wants me to put on lol.....

Side note broke some trail the other day after our most recent rounds of snowfalls...think we are at 12ft of accumulation now.





You knows its deep when the track is almost buried in on both sides and the blade is full up and still hitting snow.

The HSM finished off another pillow, this one is themed after Alice in Wonderland

So I found a snapshot of snowfall accumulations, it's already inaccurate courtesy of the weekends snowfalls lol We are over 14' of snow so far



So after Friday's snow me and some Salty Fellas went for Brraaapppp, jumping drifts, dropping off them, pole line cutting, and swamp bashing

that's the roof of a 14'x14' cabin with a 12' peak in the background


My buddy didn't quite clear the top......

It wasn't all 2 strokes and games the weekend tho, I got some more ceiling installed and shuffled some things around. I've now got 80 sg ft of ceiling covered. Its a slow process because I don't have enough clamps and It not in the budget to buy more at this time.



And since the winds jumped up towards the end of our sled ride and haven't subsided, I fired up the buddy heater yesterday while I was working, and hit a balmy 24 C inside the bus. The winds were 65 km/h gusting north of 85, was good times The snowdrifts at some peoples houses were incredible.

It was a touch over 24 when I wrapped up for the day, never ended up taking another pic. Thought I had...
