What you members are dealing with snow wise out west is what we will be expecting this weekend.
Sure is nice of you OWF folks to share.
I've had on my mind to try my tire snow chains from my 2001 dodge truck that I sold 2 years ago.
So yesterday I dragged out the chains and I was pleased that the chains fit my Willys truck tires.
I try to be prepared for the big dump.
Then I'll be driving around stuck modern vehicles.
Weather forecast here calls for a huge snow dump in the next several days.
Newer don't necessarily mean better!

Rescuing stuck cars during a blizzard, fun to do. Owning a Willys Wagon, priceless. Don’t ask me how this lady ended up on the sidewalk. The drifts are so terrible on this corner today. The wind even took out my gate. View attachment 58135
Chris, what do you have for tow hooks on the front of you're wagon?

Went out for a motorcycle ride today, enjoying the spring weather and sights in the ranch country of the lower foothills. March and April are the prettiest months of the year here.

Rounding a bend, a familiar shape caught my eye. It was there only for a moment before being obscured by the livestock chute (?) beside it. Naturally, I turned around and went back up the road and came by again. This time I stopped and took a pictue. This was as good as I could get with my phone.

Here it is zoomed in. It’s a green FC. It looks to be in pretty good condition. Given where it is and the lack of growth around it, it might be used from time to time. It’s got a tarp over the front top of the windshield. Looks like there might be a Ramsey winch. No telling how long it’s been at this ranch. It’s the sort of place that would have had a Willys back in the day.

I didn’t see anyone in the yard as I passed and didn’t want to go knocking, so went on. Will have to keep an eye on it.
