Swift Rapids Snow Wheeling GTG (56k stay away)

So us canadian boys decided it would be fun to get together in the middle of winter for a little gtg and wheeling trip. Day could have not been better. Sunny and warm. Lots of snow. Nobody broke anything and only one of use got stuck and need a little pull. Enough writing and on to the pics:

thats 5-0 giving us a once over...

that is all the photo's i managed to get. it was an amazing day and i had a blast. i look forward to future gtg to with these guys as they are an amazing bunch. the pictures really dont do the place and trails there justice. once the snow is gone, it should be even more enjoyable and we will have a few more trails to explore.

It was a blast. The best part is that every time billy went threw any hole or rut he some how honked his horn. Which is now his signitaure trade mark. These are awsome pics guys. And i can say I had one hell of a good time. D rock. all i can say is i am surprised your buddy did not get frost bite.

Thanks again to Pawel ( lumpy4000) for being our guide. These trails were a hoot, wish we had more day light so that we could have stayed out longer also. thanks for the new center caps and for showing me how to get that sticker crap off of my truck.

no worries and no problem. im glad to hear everyone enjoyed themselves and that no one got hurt. i didnt even realize how tired i was till i sat down and ate dinner last night, guess all the excitement got to me. special thanks goes to Paul and d-rocks friend (sorry, forgot his name), who both where more then willing to help shovel, push and pull, move some big *** rocks and distribute beverages.

im still grinning ear to ear today (especially after seeing my truck in action). we will have to do that again for sure. it would be nice to have a gtg with those that where not able to make it. spring is coming, so we shall need to organize something again... mmmmh mud!!

A couple videos;





I have a bunch more videos that are still uploading. I had a great time, was nice meeting everyone, and had fun playing in the snow. I'm up for another get-together whenever. Thanks Pawel, you were a great guide.
