Extreme GT Adventures!

 

Don't let the legislators see that, or brain buckets will become mandatory on all GT's!

Maybe put bed liner down, probably have to do it the spring but that would protect the wood and give the surface some traction.  I would think using chains that it would tear up the wood.

My minor experience with chains on wood is that the chains don't bite well at all on wood.  Clear the snow off the wood and throw down sand, you should be good to go,  Any surface treatment on the wood would tend to be covered and filled in by ice and snow, so that probably won't work.

 

Advice from NC, home of the occasional ice storm and the rare snow storm!

It won't be long, and that whole trail to get back there will be butthole deep in snow. Of course, he does have enough equipment to blow it out.......

Nice bridge. I think some  center supports and at least a lip on each side to keep things from rolling into the chasm.

It was a beautiful day Friday, and I hadn't seen the bridge all winter, so

I took a run at it. I had to do something outside with a GT, and playing

in the dirt is still out of the question. :smilewink:

I couldn't make the last 150 ft though. The ground got too uneven.

Did you really take those pictures on Friday?

You still have that much snow up there?

Almost all the snow is gone where I am.

Friday at noon. But we've had rain since yesterday afternoon, so that'll

be knocked down a lot by now.

Man, that's a lot of white crap yet.
I hope you get to see the ground again before you head south for the plow day.
