    We have a plan
    I am working on a shortened military Akio, down to 6 foot, and starting on ideas for a bag / trunk system to fit. I reduced the weight of the sled from 35 lb to 25 lb. Pics when done

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    Since I have a 35lb Akio, I will bring it.

    Last year my brother in Chicago gave me his traditional snow shoes, which he has not used in 30 years. When I had a leather and cat gut lacrosse stick, we treated it with some kind of oily stuff... can't remember what it was. Should I give the old snow shoes a similar kind of treatment?

    Snowshoes

    Linseed oil works well on traditional snowshoes. It looks as though stairguy may be in for a rough trip back from the SHT. Blizzard conditions are predicted along with a foot of snow and icy road conditions.
