    So.......I started a project, My new Garage!

    I used a high efficiency fireplace insert in our open kitchen/living room /dining room area. We had a LP furnace with 1000 gallon tank but kept the insert going 24/7 especially on -25 weeks. Something about wood heat that takes the chill off maybe because I would get close heat up my clothes...

    So.......I started a project, My new Garage!

    A lot of progress good to be inside and warm. Electrical wiring not difficult just need to not let your mind wander and tag wires correctly mark your fuse panel correctly. No wood burning stove?

    Today Is Opening Day For MI

    Rideable to me is normal UP conditions at Xmas. Not looking for carbide and hyfax burner conditions but the inquiry was intended to see where the snow fell and locate hope for future sledding in Big Snow area. I didn’t expect much but never know where a deep pocket of LES might have fallen...

    Mercer WI area info

    Often times Rhinelander weather would draw a line at Rt 70 for LES. Rt 70 edges north from ER east and leaving 70 straight north on 2096 LES accumulations would increase with every mile. Kind of neat to see it. Imo Spectacle Lake on average would have about 20 more inches of snow accumulation...

    The snow drops off after Nelma /Alvin why idk even less in SpreadEagle and Florence. The Phelps area has plenty of lakes and lots of snow at the eastern edge of Vilas and the price of real estate drops off east of Eagle River. Northern Forest is very very nice as far as trails but little to no...

    Catalyst delivery?

    Doesn’t surprise me most 600s fall apart in the 80s. Really not made for that 85 mph more of a spinner from turn to turn in the Twistys. If you want a straight liner buy the 858 or something else. The guys I talk to that are interested in the Catalyst 600 are realistic about power mainly want...

    Future of snowmobiling in Michigan!

    All the snowmobile OEMs are dabbling in electric powered snowmobiles. They could easily switch to electric from ice but know the infrastructure and battery technology is not ready. Electric will take time no matter the mandate so I just laugh at these lines drawn in the sand and don’t pay them...

    So Where Do We Go From Here?

    Yep Johns maintenance people should continue on it’s the ownership decisions that have to find new beginnings and they will in time.

    So Where Do We Go From Here?

    Gary has a real job too and I appreciate all he does for Snow Central. No one person without ownership can take complete charge of the website that’s too much to expect. Nora will figure it out in time.

    1995 Dodge 5.9 Tranny by chance?

    I don’t have a name but briefly surfed the web and transmission shops all over. Living in Phelps WI all those years I found for medical and mechanical professional help my closest source was Wausau or the Fox Cities. Surf and call see who gives you the warm fuzzies.
