Holiday on ice.

From Wikipedia,    The Ice Capades was a traveling entertainment show featuring theatrical performances involving motorcycles. Shows often featured rider's that didn't realize how deep the snow was going to be and others that just wanted to get out of town for a few days and didn't really care how fucking cold it was going to be.
Started in 1940, Ice Capades grew rapidly and prospered for fifty years. A decline in popularity ensued, and the show went out of business around 1995. There have been several attempts to revive the show and its name.

 My trailer was blocked in by a car so we had to get creative.
 Gathering wood from the side of the road, the flatbed is working great.
 Just one of the many gas fires on the trip.
 Travis checking out the new snow.
 Me and my frozen hand.
 One of many down bikes. It was 4-6 " of snow everywhere, so slick .

 This is where I went down and realized this was not going to be as easy as I thought.

 So we packed up and set out for dryer grounds.

 Travis getting the crash pic of the trip.

 Going out to get firewood on my XL ,because its the strongest and best looking bike out there.

 Returning with a bushel of burn-ables
 The low was 12 deg at night so here we are getting more firewood moto style.
 We found some good close to dry trails the next day.

China hat closes in just a few days so I guess this is it till spring , whatever, I don't like riding in snow anyways. Great trip , good friends and no one got hurt.
