I love a good mystery, but let me guess. When the snow is 7 ft it is easier to climb stairs than dig it out.

That said, here is a model of an actually Newfie 2-hoper:

Again don't be the guy on the bottom!

I guess I will post on this thread on propride and outhouses!

I purchased a used propride and would like to comment on wear. One thing I was sent when Sean exchanged my weight bar (the original owner had two different bars ?!?) was a pair of those small metal discs. They were worn some on my used one.

Sorry did not mean to high-jack what is actually an interesting thread! I two have a ProPride hitch and it's always good to get some ideas as to what to watch for as far as wear and possible service.

Jim, full speed ahead, and watch for icebergs!

Seriously, after driving through that, it would be a very good idea to pull the wheels and check the wheel bearings. A little water in there can cause all manner of trouble in the not-so-distant future.

That's funny Jim!
I actually like in Yorkton so I can totally relate...

To bad we did not known you were in the area, We could have opened up the courtesy parking and a beer or two!

Where exactly was this?

Cheers
Doug

Thanks for the tip. After the Prairie Schooner 2 had her workout, I used her brakes to heat up the works and evaporated the moisture, hopefully avoiding any potential issues. I will check in dry dock this fall. Jim

Good question. You may recall that the heavens opened up over the July 1st long weekend and caused lots of road closures in Saskatchewan. Somewhere just west of Yorkton the Yellowhead was closed and they sent us on a detour that resulted in our taking #5 to Saskatoon. I can't recall if this was on the detour to #5 or on #5. So, the short answer is, I don't know. When I returned east in August, all appeared normal again, although I am sure lots of folks payed the price in the form of ruined crops.
Love your photos. Jim

Hi Jim:

Yes I remember the weekend to well! Our crops got hit hard but actually have come back some since. Sounds like you drove right past the end of our driveway, so next time stop in.....

Cheers
Doug

ProPride, the best hitch ever (owned three, one on each of my Airstreams and reason why I was so successful towing the 25FB Classic with my TDI Touareg) - Sean provides the greatest customer support of any company I have ever worked with!!!
