As stated earlier, we are on a road trip to visit friends, ride, hike and vacation in general, all west of MI. We visited another groomer in Driggs ID. Actually Randy lives in Alta WY in the Teton valley which is a stone's throw from Driggs. After leaving the beautiful Teton valley we stopped in West Yellowstone to visit Doug Edgerton at YTS. Below is a photo of Doug with his latest Ginzu. If you care to see photos of our little trip, Gromit has a blog of it. It's mostly pictures because she's a quiet dog.

Hope you summer is the very best.

I should have added that we asked Doug about the 3/8" carriage bolts that clamp the pan mount to the square tube on his modern Ginzu's. They are indeed grade 5 bolts he uses. We also got a look at the 2012 Bearcat that Doug has testing this winter. Was a nice looking machine and sported a large under-seat radiator. See attached photo and Gromit even had Doug throwing sticks for her!

Arly,,, still on vacation in central SD at my folks,,,,, A

While in Butte MT visiting the mining museum there, we spied the Fordson snow tractor. Can be seen on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBjlSJf4274

Or course someone on the forum had early posted the existence of this machine. We couldn't believe that we'd have the good fortune to see one!!! It steered quite well and ran so quiet, we couldn't hardly hear her run. :$ Only downside might be the lacking of a cab. In the photos do note the cap and ski jacket attire. It was cool there!

Arly,,, needs one,,,, A
