DAY 2 — Saturday Run... On all good trail rides the second day is always the more eventful. Today my trail run was completely full, 12 rigs and 1 secret weapon that came all the way from Phoenix, Arizona with a Hemi powered, Mattracks wearing, 2 door JK. Yes, for the second year in a row Mr. Mark Turner and Mr. Don McMillan from Daystar Products International have come to play in the snow. After seeing 2 blown transmissions and a motor destroyed, the math was easy; Hemi and Mattracks and a long drive to Michigan equals my trail breaker for the day! The first hill today is a favorite of mine, a long 2 section hill that is approximately quarter mile long and 30ish inches of snow. Mark laid down the path for me to follow. It was work to get to the top, constantly working my wheel to the left and right, locking and unlocking differentials, just letting the tires hunt their way to the top.

The next set of hills proves to be no problem and we can move on to our lunch spot. One of my favorite things about trail riding is the ability to cook on the trail. Today’s menu is White Chicken Chili that has been cooking in the crockpot all day. My wife and I figure that if the snow isn’t deep we can always feed the group well! When we arrive at the meadow area that is about half the size of a football field there is one problem, snow! I quickly ask Mark if he will beat down an area where we can have lunch. Off they go with a puff of snow! After they have made one lap I join in behind them, before long the entire group is circling like a wagon train. As I get out to get the crockpot down from the rack, I step into snow that is just below hip high. This year is clearly the most snow I have ever seen! After lunch we head out to the next section of
