Pizza Run in March

It was nice day and the temps were above zero. This was what I call Stoney’s annual Pizza Run. Stoney, our fearless ride leader took us all though the local back trails starting about 3 miles from our home. The snow this year is great and deep, lots of powder and a couple of “Stuck more »

Sweetheart Run 2018

It was a cold start to a great day. As I drove to Chena Pump Landing to meet up with everyone for the ride I really didn’t expect to find anyone else. Alvin was already there, ready and waiting as I parked my rig others started to show up. So why you ask didn’t I more »

April 8th, 42 Mile Steese to Cache Mtn

Another great day and ride for this spring of 2017. Six of us meet at Chatanika Lodge for breakfast at 9:00 AM and then drove to 42 Mile Steese to hit the White Mtn Trails. We discussed going to 85 Mile, but the clouds were looking low and it was windy, figured it’d be a more »

Time to revisit this site and my life

So last August I retired, it was to say the least a hard decision but a good one now that I’ve had time adjust 🙂 With all my free time I was asked and agreed to re-join the Fairbanks Snow Travelers, Snowmachine club and have been enjoying it so far. Lots of work to do more »

2016 FST Sweetheart Run

The FST Sweetheart run was another great trip down the Tanana to Nenana and a lunch at the Monderosa. The river conditions were pretty good, but lacking in snow cover and lots of sheet ice and I was glad to have the Bearcat’s track studded up. However, those same wonderful studs also caused me some more »

Christmas with the Kids, cabin with Trish

We spent Christmas Eve with the kids at home and Christmas day packing for our trip to the cabin near Hurricane. This was the wife’s first trip to the cabin since the walls went up. She’d been there once before after we got the foundation and platform built, but it’s a big change from platform more »

Two Rivers Run

What I figured was my last local ride was the Snow Travelers Two River run lead by Stoney. It turned out to be a good ride of about 48 miles on the trails north and south of Chena Hot Springs Road and through a couple of trails I hadn’t been on before. We started out more »

Fresh snow and Chatanika

We got a nice dump of fresh snow, a wet and heavy fresh snow, not what we usually get in Interior Alaska. I’m use to that nice dry powdery stuff, but this year has been such a snow drought for us any snow is appreciated, even wet heavy stuff. As the club didn’t have any more »

Feb 15, 2015 FST Sweetheart Run

A great day and an excellent 106 mile ride. When I arrived at Chena Pump Landing, our parking area, at 8:30 AM it was already 2 above zero. It looked like it was getting a little cloudy and of course that had me wondering about the flat light. Last year there was a couple of more »
