Too bad I was wondering how much they would help on sheer ice? On the way down I hit a spot that kicked me into the old ruts and shot me down 500 feet of mountain road with no (to very little) control! I told the boys to hang on and away we went like a toboggan ride from hell!That was scary.So it's either serious studs or some kind of chains that will get me up and down without issue.

Got them on the truck and all four ATV wheels. V-bar diamond on the rear & V-bar 2 link on the frontsFour inches of dried oak leaves feels just like wet ice going downhill with a load of wood.

Quote from: Redoverfarm on February 04, 2010, 04:56:54 PMOlJarhead you are probably wise to err on the side of caution but IMO I don't see you having any problems with a 8' deck if you build your roof according to what your snow load would be. This is an extremely bad year for snow. So far we have had probably between 5-6 feet this winter with the most at one time around 30" . We are anticipating another 8-12" tomarrow and even more later next week. This is how it used to be before Al Gore started talking. You will never be looked down upon if you went a little overboard on the roof framing and it would not be that much more than what you are considering. As others will say "when in doubt build it stout". With my cabin roof at a 10/12 and the porch at 3/12 there is very little remaining once it slides from the top. In fact it usually occurs on the following day. The snow slidding off the 10/12 pushes the porch roof snow off as well. I am glad I am not standing under the eves when this happens. I was working when the back slid off and it sounded as if a train had ran through the cabin.

Is that the correct covered portch roof pitch in your model?I'm going to do the same thing with my wood stove, not penetrating the roof I mean. It was a thru wall in my yurt and it worked fine for our needs. We inherited a cheap Harbor Freight stove and it works great for being there on the weekends.I feel your pain about trying to get things done at a remote location! Forgetting one thing can ruin a trip!Keep up the good work and I can't wait until you post some more photos!
