Trout Lake December 26, 2014

Ed and Kevin went to Trout Lake to spend the night, and test their vintage sleds.  Kevin brought a 1981 Ski-doo Citation, but Ed brought a 1976 Arctic Cat Cheetah and a 1960's Shrew with a 1976 Honda 175cc trail bike mounted to it.

When they started they did not know that to get to the snow it would take some wood cutting skills to get there.  Who would had thought they needed a chain saw . . . . . . 

No worries.  A 9" hand saw Ed found in the forest did the trick; along with some elbo grease.

After cutting though the tree, and removing the lower limbs it took a final bit of help from the Dodge and a chain to open the road.

Once they made it past the tree they and found a place to park the trailers above the snow line.  It was time to unload the sleds to ride the freshly snow covered trails.

There are more pictures at the club's Photo Bucket site:

There are also YouTube videos of the Shrew in action:
