Trail Report February 2, 2015

I was out grooming our trails on Saturday and Saturday night. I groomed all the upper trails, the CCC Road, 407, and 4&7 to RD 650, then the parking lot trail and was at McLaughlin Falls when I stopped to take a break. I always look things over, this time I found that the transfer case was leaking out the front shaft seal. I called mom and dad to come and get me, and I parked the Tucker at the camp there.

Fred Hubbard came around noon on Sunday and brought it back to the groomer shed. I took it apart and as soon as I get a seal I will get it back together and we will be back out.

I was lucky I saw it leaking when I did. When I talked to Get Snow they said they just fixed one and the parts were around $8,000.00 dollars! Also lucky to be so close to the Wheelerville Road to get picked up!

Ride Safely and Ride Right!


  1. Let’s hope no GPS following vehicle strays onto the trails while the rescue vehicle is broke down. Good save in catching the leak before serious damage was done!

    Yes, some one was watching over us! There should be low fluid sensors in the transfer case to warn you. Some times we go miles and miles before we take a break, may be we should stop more often. But when you are out there 12+ hours you kinda want to keep moving to get the job done.

  2. I remember the long ride in the groomer and we didn’t make it all the way around the time I went with you! You really should suggest low fluid sensors to Tucker. You have enough things to worry about without fluid levels!
