    Default Thanks to Obs/ MWSP Staff.

    You guys are awesome with repeating the message in Forecasts and Comments that hikers need to be prepared for the full round trip on their own two feet!

    Short time now for those of at the base of the Auto Road. As we all transition into Winter, thank you OBS and MWSP staff. I hope the winter treats you all well, and I look forward to May 2010.

    I was hoping to get a final drive to the summit in my new car to take summit/car pictures. But, it has not arrived yet and the road is closing down. We will have to aim for Spring pictures.

    That's a great idea! And if they don't go for that, we still have the crazy idea of a flame thrower or a helicopter transport.

    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I think they should just attach a flatbed car to the Cog and put the Subaru on it and get it up to the summit!!!

    Anna, that's the best idea yet. If Brad takes delivery in the next week or two before they close for the winter, well, who knows what kind of strings he can pull.

    I have an e-mail to Abana asking for status - but she is off at another event right now. I am sure we are getting close. Since we have driven Subarus for years I know how well they do in winter. Since, the snow cat or truck could not get up the mountain the other day for shift change, I could use the new Subaru and tow them up next time.

    Go for it Brad!!Maybe they'll let you operate the snowcat for shift changes this Winter if you can do it.

    Default Brad's new car

    Brad, isn't the new Subaru like 'Go Go Gadjets' car? Just hop in and say 'Go Go Brad' and the Subaru will sprout helicopter blades and put chains around the tires! When you are done on the summit just say 'Go Go Brad' and the Subaru will sprout ski's for a kewl ride down.
