Hunter and I had a great ride today. We put the old cabin on the Brute with the new retrofit doors hoping it would keep us warm. Warm was an understatement. We were both completely overdressed but as we always say better safe than sorry.
Here’s how the day went: We started off about 10 AM, headed for Murphy, Idaho, but not sure exactly where we were going. We knew we were headed for the snow but not sure of the route we were going to take to get there. “No biggie,” I say. We’ll just head up the Silver City Road and figure it out from there. About 5 miles up the road take a left on Scotch Bob Road. I knew I should have taken a pic. From the bottom of the canyon it’s about 3 miles.
Anyway, we headed for War Eagle Mt. but about half way up the snow became a little too deep for the time we had to spend. We had a great time playing in the snow and trying out the new doors on the cabin. Let me tell you I know someone could build a better set of doors but these were great. We wore light coats and ball caps, and no gloves and bulky clothing to get in the way. The only time we put on stocking hats was when we left the inside warmth of our new…well, let’s just call it a Jeep.
We just need a stereo and power windows. Here’s the thing: if you get a chance to spend some time with your best friend doing what you love to do. DO IT! No questions. It was one of the best rides I have taken in a while just because my son was there with me. We had a couple of close calls because I wasn’t paying attention. (Don’t tell my wife.)
And we had luke-warm hotdogs because I can’t pack a lunch to save my life and what does my son say at the end of the day? “Best day ever! What a great adventure!” What do you say to that? I said, “Best day ever! What a great adventure!”
Until next time, enjoy the ride!
