Maybe we should do a spur of the moment thing when we have a big snow storm?

my guess is no one plows most of those "roads" so even if we have some snow fall near the date it should be a mess. it's not like it will melt all that quick.

Most of us are driving 2 hrs to get there and without the option of camping overnight wheeling makes the trip worth it. Or we could look into cheap hotels. I'm down to camp but I'm sure I'm the only one.

Be careful what you wish for. I asked for rain last weekend for the pines trip and it rained for sure...

The njlr crew has done some snow wheeling in the pines. Should look up the vids to see what it looks like. And dont forget that ice can do some serious damage.
