    A first glimpse of snow:







    Unfortunately, the snow will be gone within a week according to the weather forecast.

    dirtyjack: You're a hell of a dad, in my book.

    Heh, I didn't see the entire height of the first pic right away, my reaction was "Why is it that teenagers can always wheelie better than I?"

    Then I remembered, I've always sucked at wheelies. I can prop up the front end, but I can't keep it there.

    Don't feel bad, I'm 21 and can't hold a wheelie more than a couple pedal strokes. But I can ride bike trials...

    Ever take your skis with you when your ride up that way?

    Oz has got to be the perfect place for a fatbike - loads of loose dirt (bulldust) out west.

    I'm in the same boat. I can (or at least used to be able to) hop on the back wheel all day long, but suck monkey balls at riding a wheelie.

    First snow in Minnesota today. Wet, wet, very wet. So wet that it took down a lot of branches and knocked out power here and there. I was lucky that my home did not lose power, nor was my roof damaged, after a large branch fell.

    I was kinda lamenting not having studded my Larry tires yet, but, with the layer of slush at the bottom, they wouldn't have reached through anyway.

    Learned a valuable lesson: if you can't walk on it well, you can't ride it well. Very slow and wobbly ride. Time to wait for some powder.

    Also learned that Power Grips aren't going to do it for me.

    Drew, In my somewhat limited experience if there is any snow at all the studs won't reach through. You only need them on glare ice or totally iced over snow. But when you need them you really need them. In AK it is seldom we need them so most go without, but there are times ..... I just wish Nokian would make some bike tires out of the rubber they make their studless car tires out of!

    Good to know. I'm in the process of adding Ugigrip studs to my Larrys, they're pretty similar in outward appearance to what Nokian uses.

    Today's efforts were no-track stuff. Trying to ride cross country where there are no tracks or just deer tracks. Did more than my share of pushing. The trash left after forestry operations makes life difficult.



    Came down the hill in the background. The lower section is fairly deep bog, hike a bike stuff.

    Took the Fatback to Greenville Maine, on Moosehead lake. Nothing but logging roads and ATV trails up here, no singletrack.

    It's cooling down here now. Not long before the snow (-5C here today)



    Tried a bit more no-track riding. A bit easier when the boggy bits are frozen, but the bits of branch etc still makes it difficult, and it's mainly hike-a-bike still.

    pinky the fatback

    Sunday everything was nice and frozen for her second ride on "pinky". the baseball boogie trails were rad! at least i think that's what they're called. they start above speedway and shoot down toward elmore where there are a bunch of boardwalks.

    Is there a reason so many people from Alaska use GripShifts?

    I think the tought is that they work better with winter gloves. Although akgreeff has grips on his mtb and trigger on his snow bike.

    i'm sure there are other reasons.

    They do work better with winter gloves/mittens. Not everyone likes poggies.

    And it's a personal pref for me, I have GS on all my bikes.
