Snow Cat In Use

1980 Bombi Maiden Voyage

12/29/2014 We decided there was enough snow at our Ham repeater site at Tiger Mt to give the Bombi a test run.

I wanted to test it out somewhere I could pull it out with the Jeep if it broke down. Tiger was a close run and easy to get to.

Monday morning, Patti & I loaded the Bombi up on the trailer and took off for Tiger.

Taken in our yard before trip

SR# 18 Parking Lot just after we got back & loaded the Cat. This was all white when we left at 10:00 AM

Well it got us there & back. Had a Carb problem. Suspect it has some varnish. Unloaded at the parking lot at the summit of State Route 18 & drove it to the top of Tiger. Had just a skiff of snow at parking lot & about 11"/12" at top.


Another run up Haller Pass 1/16/2016

Went with my Son Kirk & the Lawson boys with their Jeeps.

Main reason we went was to cut out the windfall.
