Rubiranch,

One day I hope to get back to Utah. That must be god's country.
Nice set of shootin irons.

I saw your truck, camper, and trailered bike pic and I was friggin jealous.

I dearly love the backcountry, but age and the family has finally sat my butt down and had an intervention. No more solo outings with heart condition.

I have to whisper this, but I aint goin quietly.
I have a plan to escape and hide in the canyons.

I do hope you get out again. Utah is a beautiful state.

I'm a very fortunate person. I live in a State Park and have for almost 8 years now.

I'm a volunteer for the US Forest Service, Utah State Parks OHV Program and the State Park that I live in.




During the winter months I work for the OHV Program grooming snowmobile trails.

Its a tough job but somebody has to do it.

I'll bet you get to see lots of wildlife too. Why do you have to groom the trails, they're snow mobiles?

Pretty special to be able to live in a state park. Years and Years ago, I was a summer Park Ranger in one of the Northern Michigan State parks and loved it. Spent the first summer living in a GP Medium surplus tent and the second in a dorm. Wonderful memories.

Snowmobile trails need to be groomed to keep them flat. Trails develop small cross valleys and mounds. The groomer acts like a snow plow and pushes the high spots into the low areas. I snowmobiled for about 20 years in the Lake Erie/Snowbelt area of NE Ohio.

The revolvers are awesome! But, I’m a little more jealous of your “job”.

They don't like the bumps.

In the winter I rarely see any wildlife because the snow is too deep.

Rabbits are about the extend of it other than deer or elk you see on the HWY on you way up of back.

When you look in the rear view mirror the trail looks like a freeway.

These machines do great job making them nice.




This was a few years ago. I had already come down this trail and knocked down all the moguls. This was in front of me.



The snowcats have a tiller on the back that breaks up all the ice and a "rake" that smooths it out.



We groom at night when the snow is frozen. The trails are close to 60 miles of grooming. 12 to 14 hr nights.

Right now I only work 2 nights a week.

Kind of drifted off topic a bit.

Its a great job until you finish the night at about 5:00 AM in a blizzard, its 5 and you have to load the cat back on the trailer and chain it down.



Its nights like this make it all worth it.

What do you do during the warmer months? Do you still have trails to groom for 4 wheelers?

I think that altimeter reads 10K + .

Working and breathing can get difficult up there. Great video and pics! I figured you for ATV, from the pics of your truck rig.

I spent my 20's during the '70's living in western Montana 5 miles out on ranch road (opening and closing gates). I used my VW bug with ginormous tires for snow plowing. The only problem was every 100 feet or so, I had to get out and clear the 4 feet of snow off my windshield to see.

Reading of your finishing at 5 AM in the sub-zero snow takes me back to getting up at 4 AM to start my day in the sub-zero snow. Cold, hungry stock doesn't like waiting for any man.

The memories of ranch life are the sweetest I have.

I live at about 6200 ft and the coldest I remember it getting was -17.


















Not much of a gun thread is it?

This was the job that got me started with Utah State Parks OHV Program back in Aug 2012.

We built a new ATV trail to bypass some wetlands that people were abusing by not staying on the trail.

We had to build two small bridges to cross two small brooks and then the trail around the wetlands.

The money that paid my wages and two others on our crew was a grant from the BLM to the State Parks OHV Program and we worked under the forest Service. Quite a unique situation.

This was one of the best and funnest jobs I've ever had.

Hey rubiranch,

Those pics are gorgeous. They really give you a good feel for the forest that I don't think most city folks have ever seen. To experience it as a work environment is not to be believed without some experience. Very cool bridges to keep the creek from further damage.

I worked as a hooker in the woods a few miles outside of Saint Regis in western most Montana in giant cedar forest (8 foot ++ diameters). We were cleaning after a burn and clearing the creek of giant obstructions. It was the scariest and most rewarding job of a lifetime. We didn't cut anything down, just clean. It is one of the most awesomely beautiful places I've ever seen.

I could count the number of times per day I could have been killed standing 2 feet either way. I got knocked unconscious one day. Another time there was a 4 story stack of giant logs that I had to scramble up to try and loose my stuck hook on the top log. Once I finally kicked it loose, the entire stack went tumbling down. Watching a hundred tons of giant logs crashing and smashing each other just underneath you was terrifying. I was hanging onto the hook 40 feet in the air screaming and making love to that hook I was grasping for dear life.

You really took me back this morning. Thanks, bud.

If you can believe it could be the second scariest, there was also my time working on the "Coral Sea" aircraft carrier deck.

Working in the mountains is awesome.

I'm glad they were just close calls and nothing serious.

Glad you're still here.

2014 60-14 Lady Smith

These are my keepers.
The above is what's left. Below are the .357s that I parted with within the last year.

M27-2 1982 nickle 8 3/8"
M27-7 2000 6"
M27 "S" 1961 6"
M27 "S" 1959 8 3/8"
M627 1998 M627-2
M686 1984 4"
M686-6+ 1983 5"
M19-2 1963 4"
M19-2 1967 6"
Pre 27 1955 3.5"
Pre 27 1957 4"

I think if I regret selling any of them its the M627-2.

I believe I've ended up in a good place.

Those 627s are a lot of fun - especially the 8-shot ones... This one is one of my favorites to shoot.



And with its 6" pre-27 scoped ancestor...

Here's a picture of the one I sold.
I never did shoot it.

Just a six shooter.

I have a few duplicates myself that you are causing me to consider for the auction block.

My hesitation in selling them right now is that if someone beats Trump, my hawglegs will instantly be worth many times what they are worth today. The next Dem will be the biggest gun grabber of all time with Bloomberg's money and control of the media spout.

That's not politics, that's economics. Politics is a sick addiction to follow. I try to avoid drinking the poison that both sides tend to pour.

I think that's why I love going solo to the backcountry for weeks at a time. I get away from all that bad juju. I just get to shoot some steel and be with the woods and its critters.
Rejuvenation.

I know you like .357 Kenny. I had to think for a minute. In N- frames I only have a 4 28nd, a 4 28-2 and a 6 27-2. But Im holding a number of Ks.

I know a lot of folks here wont understand this but I didn't "need" that many .357s. I kept my favorites.

I'm still in good shape.

My 28-2 is what got me started with .357s.
My brother let me take it rabbit hunting when is was brand new and latter gave it too me back in 2014.
He told me I was the only person who had ever shot it so it thought it was only right that I have it.

He too was big into .357s early on in his gun days. I'm sure his influence is the key for my attraction to .357 Magnums.




I have the original Magna grips for it and this is how it sits on my nightstand.




I've shot my 28-2 more than all my other guns combined.
#2 is my DS Arms SA58 FAL. I love shooting this one too.

I keep coming back to this thread and getting another injection of the woods and Kenny's 357 "needs".

Today took me on a path toward deciding why I need more than one gun in each caliber.

The answer for me came back quick, and easy.
I don't collect calibers, I collect guns.

I like Colts, S&W, United Sporting Arms, Dan Wessons, Rugers, and a few others.

If I just take one manufacturer, like Colt; there's SAA, Army Specials, Official Police, Trooper ..., 3 5 7, Python, and the Diamondback. Four of those are in 357 and it doesn't matter. They are all DIFFERENT.

"Vive La Difference"

Wow! I'm glad that's out. I was afraid for a second I was going to have to let go of one of my girlfriends. Thank gawd I found a found a rationalization quick before I did something to destroy my baby blankies.
My warm and cozy comfort zone almost got put in the garage sale.
I almost went into withdrawal there for a second.

My name is Prescut, and I am of sound body and mind;
I can quit anytime I want. I can quit. I can ... What was I saying?

Prescut

Nice collection. I'd like to expand on mine. Are you looking to sell any of the older models, or anyone on the board looking to do so? Text me 225/888-1143. Thanx SlySix

I'm keeping the ones in the first picture.

I've parted with enough already.
