Does anyone know if Bison licks ruin paint? haha We were overwhelmed once we entered their area. They continued to try and lick all the salt off the car. Was going only like a foot a minute pace because they kept standing in the way and not moving. A few horn hits and bumped mirrors made it a little stressful. It also didn't help that they were fighting with each other every once in awhile, running around, and slipping on the ice. haha

That's funny as heck! Beautiful picture by the way. :)

Just a few off my phone... halfway through my roadtrip. First time driving in snow, on the way to New Mexico.

First time in snow ever, or just in the Ranger? Either way, what'd you think? haha

Ever. I've lived in Houston my whole life. Didn't have any issues getting through it, there were a couple iced over small bridges I had to coast through. I think the snow is sketchier at lower speeds, but I've drifted for years so I was prepared 😂. I've always been a car guy and had 'super performance' tires forever. I wasn't sure what to expect with these Wildpeak tires, but I've got about 12k miles on them and they continue to blow my mind every chance they get.

Good to hear! I'm always interested hearing people's first winter driving experiences. As someone who's probably driven more miles on ice and snow than in the dry over my life it's just second, or maybe even first, nature. haha But you always hear the horrors when a winter "storm" hits the south and pandemonium ensues. haha

Some conditions are certainly sketchier at lower speeds, gotta keep that momentum up sometimes, but not always.

I've heard good things about the Wildpeaks and I have no doubt they're good in casual winter conditions. Not as good as dedicated snow tires like those of us up north do, but a good compromise.

Well, we survived. I lost our gazebo, basketball goal, and my bed cover (which I found and may be able to salvage)

My parents who live down ON the gulf (I’m 45 miles north) got hit much harder.

Glad you're okay. We have a lot of damage here in North Georgia and a lot of people are still without power. Ours was off for about 32 hours.

In honor of Halloween I rode to, in, and through one of the creepiest places I know locally, the old Duluth-Pacific-Winnepeg train tunnel. Not terribly creepy when it's busy with families and rock climbers. But when you're alone, like I was this afternoon, it can get to you a bit, or at least it can get to me. Especially when you hear a faint train horn on the wind and crumble of rocks in the darkness.

Part of the old D,W&P railroad is now part of CN’s Main Line from Winnipeg to Chicago. Very cool about the tunnel and I could see how it might be spooky.

Damn! I should have checked this thread a while ago. Late to the party, but this is what I saw out my front window this morning. Stepped outside in my PJ's to take the pic.
