The pails of sand that I put in the bed of the truck for extra traction on the winter roads come out today. Although we currently still have lots of snow in the forests, our roads are bare. Hec, my Ranger stayed clean my last two trips to town. We also have an above normal stretch of weather coming up, that will melt much of the snow in the forest and may yield the earliest ice out since 2012.

I am sure we will see more snow before this season is over, but nothing the Ranger cannot handle on it’s own.

I am starting to assemble my car detailing products, for the first major detail of the season, but I will wait for late April to do it.

Arly, your dog is on point in every picture you post. I bet he’d take down a black bear if it got too close.

Not sure he'll diminished the B bear population, but he does like to hunt. We need to keep him on a short lead (a control term) or he'll kill wildlife. Side bar is he's in all the photo's because we take them for the dogs blog. :shock:

Today we ventured up the Keweenaw to the Poor Rock Abby trails near Eagle Harbor MI. The Abby is on the lake shore were as this mine and trails is part way up the bluff. The mine ruins are from the Arnold Mine which was ran in around 1860 to 63.

And a historical, industrial question for you all. Why can't we see any mortar in the building foundation in the bottom photos??

OK guys, with this super early spring happening here and low snow. We've got darn few snow photos anymore. But here's one.

No one tried my historical, industrial question in the last post???

I believe this is an old technique called "dry stone" They used smaller rocks and shims to secure the stones in place.
Thanks Sailor but that's not quite right. There was a materiel used as mortar.

I just wanna share that I love this thing in the snow. Helped me get through 12" of snow up here in Calgary. So many people didn't make it out of their driveway and I was at work on time. Throw on winters and you will never get stuck unless you are really pushing your luck.

Arly, this is why I like the Super Cab. You can put your Skis' in the Bed and your dog safely behind the seats.
Different thread, but I'd not even dream of owning that stub of a box, on a truck. :crazy:

16 inches of wet snow this weekend. After getting them unstuck, took some neighbors to town to get groceries. Roads were horrible, but the ranger got us there and back. This tree blew down across the road last night.

Got a dusting of snow overnight. Nothing bad at all. Only trouble is the inch of rain that fell before it dropped below freezing and turned to snow. So things were a little slick and crusted.

Usually don't start parking outside this early, but as with the rest of the winter, this has been a strange spring in that all the snow is basically gone already and we've already hit 70F multiple times. Even most of the plow banks are gone already and those usually don't go until almost June. I keep waiting for another big spring storm, but I'm not sure that'll happen this year at this rate.
