Didn't get a group photo. :( Hopefully one of you other guys with cameras did. :) 12? Soobs in all and a Saturn. ;) Mostly new gen, pretty cool to see the diversity finally and not just old school.

Here's one of Rob mounting one of the mounds in the staging area.

It was a great time. Interesting snow this year. We had a heavy snowfall about two weeks ago and then a warm spell. Then more snow the day before. It resulted a layer of soft ice underneath 4 to 8 inches of wet snow on top. The wet snow would compact real easily and some of the lower cars got high centered very easily just plowing though the deep stuff. We finally got our trees near the end of a long day.

We had a ton of fun meeting everyone and playing in the snow. I'm just sorry I didn't get a chance to catch everyone's names.
I posted my pictures in the gallery.

I also shot a little video, but it'll probably be a couple days before I get a chance to download it, compress it, etc.

I didn't use the camera much; too much fun driving around in the snow. But managed this shot just as we were leaving with our two trees.

Just a comment for the east coasters (I was one until 1988....I grew up in northern NJ), what the pictures don't typically show is that sections of these roads are less than 10 feet from a significant drop off of 500 to 1000 feet straight down.....and there is no armco barrier anywhere; you go too close to the edge and there's nothing to stop you. I'm not sure of the exact elevation but I know from past trips that we're typically 5500 feet above sea level.
