Indeed it is. Went with a friend to look at a used Polaris last night. Ran it down the road a time or two. The fever has it's grip on me.

Where do you sled in OH? You trek North to a great lakes snowband somewhere? Used to see OH and IN plates in Munising lots but not so much anymore.

My buddy got to use my new meyer v plow once last year....i was traveling. Put 1200 mi on my sled and my wife 700 on hers.

Unless you own a "ditch-banger", at least in our area, most people don't even bother riding in Ohio. When we get a big snowfall you will see the guys running around the roads, etc.. and while it looks like fun, I am typically in a truck pushing the white stuff at that point as opposed to playing in it and I value my machines a bit more than that!
We pretty much have to go to the Chautauqua, NY region (2 hour haul) or to the Lower MI region (4-5 hour haul) for the closest good trail riding. We try to make it to the central UP area, around Newberry (8 hour haul across the Mac Bridge), at least once a year, as they really have the best riding conditions up there. Never made it over to Munising for some reason but if the weather permits this year we plan to make a backpack ride dropping in just over the bridge in St.Ignace and making a 3 day loop to include Munising.

As for the plow, did you go with the Meyer Super V2 with the flared wings or the smaller version with the straight-cut wings? Which controller are you using, pistol grip or joystick? Hope you get to use it this year, I know that mine was great the little it got used last season. I have both controllers but found the joystick is far better for me than the pistol grip. I had the pistol grip on my previous plow for 3 seasons and thought it would be tough to switch over but it was very simple and really works well with the various V configurations.

I shoot up to our cabin in Manitowish Waters WI, and a trip to Houghton/Hancock MI each year... Hoping to get towards the Tetons next year...probably drag my sled for some trail rides and then rent a powder hog for some back country playing (hopefully a Doo Freeride 154"...soooooooo sick)

my sled: 2009 Renegade X 800, blacked out, 10inch riser, ripsaw paddle

Running a 1/2 ton pickup so its a Super V LD 8ft (straight cut wings). Have always used pistol grips...previous Western Pro had pistol grip too. Usually pushing in straight blade mode with an angle and stacking with V inward, only V outward on initial pass in really deep snow so tend to either alternate with angle buttons or V buttons.

Tell me more about the joystick features and how you plow/why you like it??

Got 6" of wet snow today and am going to take my wife out in a bit and teach her how to plow with the 60" straight blade on the UTV. Initial pass with this new toy before I had to come to the office to "work" tell me it will do a great job too. Bought it cuz when I travel my wife doesn't like plowing with my truck.
