Let's Get a Fat Bike Groomer!

Fat Biking.  So awesome.
Fat biking, winter riding, walking, snow shoeing, and general winter bafoonery is here to stay.  As we've all seen in the last few seasons, the use of the local trails during winter months has increased with both time and with the amount of manual grooming that takes place.  A few seasons ago it was just a few dedicated souls taking it upon themselves to get the job done.  This winter, there seems to be several people out there clearing the snow and packing the trails for all the users.
A small group of us have decided it's time to move forward with trail grooming and get motorized.
Welcome to my GoFundMe campaign.  Here's the idea...
I want you, dear listeners to donate your money to my campaign so I can in turn, groom the trails to the level we all deserve and desire.  It is my plan to do the work myself (with the help of a few special folks), but with no corporate affiliation.  I'm sure that by this point, the majority of people who are likely to donate, also know that I don't screw around when it comes to these things.  It is important that we address legal issues pertaining to where and when we can groom and approved access.  However, while the legal stuff gets sorted out, let's get on with getting the gear.  I've been talking about it for too long and I'm ready to go.
My plan is to aquire a Snow Dog.
You can view it here: https://snowdog.com/
I will store, maintain and operate the beast.  I feel that $6000 is right about where we need to be to aquire the equipment, get it here and use it for a year.  More details coming as we get into this...
As you may or may not know, the majority of grooing in the last few years has been done by a couple of people including yours truely.  It's all been done by foot dragging all sorts of junk through the forest to clear and pack the snow.  At times, it's quite functional.  At other times, the snow wins... as a few of you who were on this ride know...
  It's time we increased our winter trail network.  Let's get this going.  I won't let you down!
