-4 C Snowed 2" last night.
In our check-in on the SBX-11a this morning, Bryan told Vikki at dusk last night he had to abandon the Scandic and he snowshoed the last 300 feet to Windy Pond Line Cabin. Mice had got in over the summer and it was a mess.
He said he had pushed the trail 1 1/2 km from Snake Swamp. The steep trail down into Windy Pond (150') he packed and shoveled without his snow shoes on. It was light fluffy powder. He is hoping it will set up and he can get back up that hill tomorrow. He'd rode down the hill on "Miss Piggy" and got stuck on something. He was hi centered... couldn't go forward or backwards. He thinks it is probably a 3" stump or something. Vikki said she was concerned about that heavy skidoo falling over on him if he shoveled out one side. He said he wasn't going to do that... he would feel with his hand to find what was the problem and cut it out with his chainsaw.
We made a call schedule at 2, 3, 4 and 7 pm. One of those times Vikki will find out that all is okay again. Bryan is 24 km away.
Once he gets unstuck he will put out some traps. Looks like we will be apart for New Year's Eve. But Vikki got out her oil paints yesterday and now she doesn't need to clean up the kitchen table until tomorrow. So it will work out.

We've had little new snow and it is settling. The prickly Devil's Club are sticking out.
