Great video hobbyjumper! No doubt I would have loved to be there. Got out last night to an indoor rock course my LHS has set up in one of there warehouses. It's always enjoyable to hang out with a group. That said, nothing beats the outdoors...so I did get out into the snowstorm yesterday as well

Thank you. Stay tuned, one day there might actually be a rescue....


I should probably rename it the Yeti Search Team and put foil hats on the drivers


I do feel I am at a point where I need to diversify my camera work a bit however my equipment it particularly limited

It's a long slow journey across the Arctic tundra.

It seems like the whole country got hit with a good dump this weekend. Hopefully the snow firms up a bit this week. I didnít get the RC much past the yard either, though that was still a lot of fun.

You bounced around that trailer around pretty hard. I gather the new hitch/tongue combo held up?

Nice vid HJ, looked like a fun trail run. You had a nice mix of rigs there, even an R1! My R1 has been hanging from the basement rafters for a few years already.

It does. It looks like an ice shelf you see on a water fall. Really cool.

Those are really cool. I used to run down by the river and run a long the shore on the ice push but some kids got hurt a few years ago and you can't go down there in the winter anymore. I might have to look for a different river spot. That's just awesome.

It definitely gets to be dicey when the ice begins breaking up. Muddy too. this was a pretty exceptional year for those ice features.

Cool, I will check it out. You did a super job on the Creep body, love it!

Been away the last couple of weeks and work has piled up around here. Haven't touched the rigs in awhile. Hopefully will get back to it before too long here.

Huge improvement. Never saw them side by side. Can't wait to see you test them out.
