First flash up in the d9 cat at the mine in the cariboo
« on: March 20, 2019, 11:17:15 PM »
This pic was taken 2 weeks ago( took me that long to figure out how to post pics, thanks for the info Mcbain!!!
 Theres around 4 feet of snow right now but it is melting fast. We had 8 km of road plowed by a grader then I walked in 2 km through the snow from the main road to grab the D9. The thing flashed up from sitting  all winter like we left it yesterday. Got all the snow plowed off the next cut. Dug in a few spots to check how frozen stuff was. Only 6 inches of ice in our ponds and 12 inches of frozen top. Damn near sluicing time DEVIL&??

Love a good first of the season picture, and love how that Cat fired up too! Nothin' better.

All the best with the coming season,

Question.  Do the creeks usually drop in the Cariboo in June?  I have been there in May when they were roaring and in Aug when they were low.  I was wondering when it usually happens?
