    The Wife and I drove up to McHenry, MD to go skiing at The Wisp.

    We left Friday, Ski'd Sat/Sun, and Drove back today.. I only wish I had gotten more action pics of the FJ conquring the Mountain of a Driveway the House we stayed in had.. but its kinda hard to convience the wife to get out of the truck when its 0 Deg (Acording to the Trucks Temp guage) to snap a picture of you climbing the snow covered hill... while the Chevy Silverado Z71, Tahoe 4x4, and some Benz SUV.. are all sittin at the bottom, leaving some of my family members to walk up the hill, while I drive by laughing my ass off... then they try to say the only reason we made it up the hill is becuase the called to have some of the snow plowed while we were skiing and they didnt "feel like" driving up after it was plowed... yea... I'm pretty sure we made it up the hill because were driving a Toyota FJ 4x4, with a 3" Lift and some 285/70 BFG A/T .....


    Well I have been talking enough here are some pics...

    FJ

    LOL.. there not kid skis... i discovered these in colorado like 8 years ago... there Snow Blades... they are short skis that are curved at both ends.. it enables you to go forwards or backwards.. the more advanced snow blader can hit jumps and do tricks.. i havnt mastered snowboarding yet.. and i have always sucked at regulation sized skis.. they always get crossed up..
