We will see how it works!
I just welded a tab on the end of the slotted pipe and thru bolt it. I put it on five years ago and it works so well I havn't taken it off.

Thanks for the pic, that is exactly what I was thinking although I will have to do a little additional engineering due to the V plow configuration choices. I was thinking of making 2 seperate pieces and welding a nut on the the face of the end of each piece so I could simply tighten a bolt against the cutting edge and allow the pressure of that to hold it in place. I will take a pic after I do it, just need to buy the pipe first.
Thanks again for the pic.

A little thin especialy in wind blown areas and corners. More snow forecast every day. Have only had one good storm so far. As you face the water my place is the big white boathouse on the left, next to twp. marina. You can see it in pic. from last Holloween.Probably looks a little different to you without snow.

Have eaten in that place many times.....headed to munising weekend after next to sled for four days. Typically make the run to Grand Marais on Friday or Monday. Used to stay in Chatham until 3 or 4 years ago...been renting cabins from Schram's since.....staying down by the Buckhorn this year. Been sledding up there for 15 years...great place!!

I hope it snows everyday for you. Stop up next summer and we'll go for a pull.

That looks familiar but like you said, a lot different without the snow. Typically we eat at the pub, then fuel up across the street before heading off to Paradise or back towards Newberry.
That is a beautiful area and we are hoping to be up there in late January/early February.

The Buckhorn...the one in Trout Lake or a different one. We stayed there a few years ago and had some good riding from there up to The Soo.
Have fun.

OK....Construction Update: After all of my misadventures in plowing my own drive, I returned to the scene yesterday to clear the path for the framers to begin today. So, I should have some new pics late today or tomorrow. They are saying that the shell will be up in roughly 2 weeks and the weather certainly looks to be cooperating, so we will see.

If the weather holds out you will be in great shape. My framers worked 6 days of the 16 calendar days since they started due to rain/ mud/ holiday/ weekend/ rain/ snow/ holiday. If the weather holds out you will be golden.
