Well, after a long Fall touring around the U.S in support of THUNDERSTRUCK II, we have finally returned home, built our new sleds, and hit the snow! Here are some highlights of this Fall:

After HayDays, we travelled throughout Montana promoting the film and we also hit big shows in most major Western cities, including Denver, Salt Lake, Spokane, Seattle (Puyallup), Minneapolis and a few others. Special thanks to all those who help make them happen, especially SnoWest Magazine and the various sledding associations.

We started building sleds in early November and after ordering 7 new CPC 1150s, Team Thunderstruck had a LOT of building to do!

The 1150s hit the snow in late November along with Trennis’ refreshed 1220 D&D and a few other mod sleds. In December we travelled to Utah to find snow and play in the mountains with Mr. Dan Gardiner. After that, we quickly rounded up the Team to head for Revy, with tons of fun had by all up there. Many of our riders went up for the ride and again, although it is a long drive, it is SO WORTH IT! Check out some pics from our Revy trip on SnoWest forums HERE.

Also, our graphics contests are going to wrap soon so if you have an entry, please get it to me soon! We’ll be riding Priest Lake next and then Island Park and we’ll be enjoying the holidays with family and friends.

See you soon! JIM
