    Are you serious? Like Montana is any better, we get on average 80 inches of snow a year in my town, I'm not in Southern MN here, I'm like 2 hours from Canada, just as far North as you ;)

    I run 35x12.5's (I'm not saying these are ideal snow tires, skinnys would of course we better for driving on winter roads, but through actual snow not plowed rounds, and anything else, I'll take my tires) on my truck and don't go in the ditch period either, and have pulled out people, I think you are mistaking bad drivers with vehicles that aren't setup like yours. And if I did go in the ditch, I'd probably just drive out.

    I had a pretty nice body and suspension lifted Toyota pickup with 35s back in the mid-90s when I lived in Oregon. Then I made the mistake of coming back to Chicago. Loved and miss it; though I didn't do any of the work myself. Can essentially blame the city for that one too. I didn't really know anybody who worked on cars when I was growing up to say nothing of giant trucks.

    You ever make that ride from Eugene to Bend ?
    Man what a Nice drive that is. I'd love to live in Bend.
    Building those was a hobby for us when the boy's were
    still at home. Bought that thing for $1200 and dumped 12K
    into it after that:D The engine, transfer case and both axles
    were all replaced while building it. The suspension has morphed
    over the years to what it has now. Went from 3" to 4" to 6".

    Yeah I've only got mine stuck once and that was deep snow. Sunk to the frame. Ended up wrapping the winch around a tree
    and dragging myself out after about 2 hrs work. That is just so fun when you can't feel your fingers and having to pull on the
    ice cold winch cable and digging the snow out from around the frame. :cry: Do you have your tires siped ? That really helps
    on ice and rocks.

    That picture looks like it's taken about a mile behind my house, the other side of that river is Wisconsin, if the camera was turned farther to the left you would see Lake Superior. But yeah pretty nice country up here, I just want to get back out of this city and into the country, too many g-units here.

    Anyways, good few rounds tonight guys, I usually don't get a chance to play during the times you guys frequent.

    Okay - I know most of you hate Metro, but I really like the map because of the fast pace. I don't care about SPM or awards or any of that crap. I just like the fast paced action:)
    And all you talking about 4x4's and mountains need to come to Alaska and have some fun!!!

    If I'm looking for fast paced I usually chose Seine, but even that can get annoying if people camp a building and set claymores/spawn points. That or Grand Bazar, but thats Battle Corridor, so I only enjoy it every now and then, at least you can attempt to flank on the roads though, just got to go way out of your way.

    Yeah - I should play Seine more as I have enjoyed that map. Playing Metro all the time does get boring:(
    I usually do not have a lot of time to play (1.5 to 2 hours a night).
