    Us Texas boys aren't used to snow, but today we gots some of the stuff and I wuz thinkin. What if I fired up the ole Honda 4-wheeler, got one of my waterski tow ropes and, I got a pair of k-2 beater ski's. Can yu guys smell the smoke yet? Ski areas just opened in the great S/W but i gots some white stuff right here. I'll let you knw how it works out.

    BTW, we've done similiar things in bar ditches after a big rain with water skis. Lots of fun but yu have to watch out for the tin-horns at drive ways.

    4-wheel drive works better for pulling. 2-wheel drive is light on traction but will work and have someone sit on the back for traction and safety (watch the skier)......Just a "theory"........LOL......merlyn

    We use to do it as a matter of being too broke to got to a ski area and pay for a lift ticket. It is more like water skiing than downhill. You can also break a few bones/heads so be careful.

    We've done it with various things through the years. Mostly used pickups to pull with but have used tractors, 3 wheelers, horses, cattle and one time a get for pulling methods. For riding on, trash can lids, ply wood or wood something, barn siding, sheet metal, awl heck, probably about everything... We've had alot of fun in the hills with this crap and so far ain't no one got more than brusied and beat up alittle. And about the hills, I know Kansas is flat but just humor me as them hills are an illusion of my mind........

    This was fun yesterday, snowing hard running thru the pastures and having a ball. This morning things aint quite so funny. Cant get any of the vehicles out of the drive. The road in front is worse than the drive. 12 miles to the nearest fm to mkt road. Boys I'm snowed in. N Texas Southern Ok. blizzard. Us flatlanders aren't used to this stuff. maybe by Sun It'll melt enuff to get out but sure ruined Christmas plans. Gotta prime rib readdy and nobody but me n the fat girl to enjoy it. Guess we'll have our family Christmas time come Sunday.

    Have fun while you can
