Well the new year is here and I hope everyone had fun welcoming it. The New Years Eve celebration started for me 5 kms from town with the car in the ditch and the -35 temps biting exposed skin. Due to my own stupidity I buried the car deeply into the ditch and surrounding brush. a hour to walk back to town and three separate attempts to extract eventually freed the car 3 hours later, with some minor damage to the front fender. All is well that ends well.
Have a great new Year.
