RE: Has anyone here chained up there bus to go into snow or ice conditions?
I've finally found somebody who's used these. His comments were they were better than nothing for soft fresh snow, but once out of that they wouldn't last very long. You might get 2 or 3 uses out of them and they'd be done.

Thanks - that will save me some time and possibly dollars.
I will probably check out regular chains.

Thanks

RE: Has anyone here chained up there bus to go into snow or ice conditions?
Here is what I have decided to do - talked with a friend that runs some trucks:
1- Watch the weather
2- When I get close to the area of concern I will watch the truck stops and see how full they are
3- If getting full I will stop and ask questions
4- Proceed with caution

Please let me know if you guys feel this make sense.

One concern is that I do not think I could even put them on.

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to all

Urnie,
That sounds like a reasonable plan of attack. You at least have the option of parking for a day or 2 to allow conditions to get better before continuing on and be relatively comfortable while doing so. The truckers only have their uninsulated shacks. Those just aren't much fun in the cold.
