Fun in the snow.

Hey guys.

Went up to blue mountain in Collingwood, Ontario, and got pretty snowed in, road closures, what a chore having to ski an extra 4 days right? 4 feet of snow in 5 days basically. Jeep handled it beautifully, even with all-season tires. Traction on, handles like a champ, trac off, have some fun but still responds when you need it to.


About this high with the drifts.






Poor Compass didn't know what hit it.

He said he's in Ontario. So it's a Canadian Jeep with the metric dash showing kilometers/hour instead of miles

No, just Birdman. People confuse us all the time.

Oh and btw, up here at one of our main gas stations you get a car wash card, 90 days of washes, one per day for 3 months for $100 or so. you get 9 washes and break even. $400 a year for a clean Jeep every day? Bargain.

There is a car wash that sales unlimited car washes for a month for $20. The only thing is that it is so far out of my way that the money I would save in car washes would be used in gas driving to the car wash

Re: Fun in the snow.

I wash my own because it makes me enjoy it more versus products and crap thats been used all over someone else's car and all that.

its that whole... using a brush/rag/wiping object that has hit the ground or someone else's car then it touches mine that i'm not a fan of.

Big ditto. Amen to that with the exception of touchless car washes that use a pre-soak; those I'll use.
