    It was suggested we do a Christmas Tree Run this fall/pre holidays. I wanted to gauge interest and gather location recommendations. This could be a fun early December club run.
    So post up if you want to go and where we should go!!!

    I have always gone up Hyalite. That has been where my parents always took me and so that is where my wife and I got now. Since she can't handle much off-road, not sure where else to go.

    I'd be interested but we have a tradition of setting up the Tree the day after Thanksgiving so I might have to go early. Maybe I can scout it out for you guys.

    I think you guys are over thinking this. Drive down any forest service road and take your pick . We will be going to bracket creek day after thanksgiving. Most of Bozeman goes up hyalite.

    That is legal here? Man, I love Montana, we had to pull a permit in Colorado. Is that not the case here?

    You can BUY a permit at hardware stores and such. I think they're cheap. Like $8? Could be wrong. I've not done it before.

    Okay, after the meeting today it seems like we have some details...


    What: Black Friday Christmas Tree Sale brought to you by the National Forrest. $5/tree (get a permit at ACE Hardware)

    When: Black Friday 11/23 10:00 am meet up. Rolling before 10:30

    Where: Meet at Overland Cruisers then we'll go somewhere with trees... not Hyalite! :deadhorse:

    Why: I really don't know why we bring dead trees into the house and decorate them to remind us about Christmas... But it is TRADITION! :bounce:

    Who: I am bringing my 5 and 9 year olds and giving them axes to play with. What could go wrong!?

    Who else is in so we can get a good idea of who's coming.




















    Also, I am sure it isn't necessary to remind folks but snow wheelin' is a whole 'nother animal. Bring warm clothes, proper footwear, a real shovel, a good tow strap, max trax/chains if you got them, warm liquids and a good patient attitude. Life has taught me you don't go far fast in snow. I'll bring some sleds for the boys/kids, Darren wants to bring a trailer behind his Yaris so yeah, your rig can make it on this run too!
