Well, I'm back!  I know it's been a while since my last project, but here it is.  I'm building a snow crawler to be able to go in the snow when it comes (WHEN it comes).  So, I started searching online, and I found this awesome Columbian Sno bus!  I started building the tracks work (taking note of the phrase "From the ground up") and next was connecting them together.  I am using 2 XL motors and for the steering, I'm going to use 1 M motor.  Plus 1 battery box and 1 IR receiver+remote.  I'm also thinking about maling a NXT version, so stay tuned!
