Thanks for starting this thread John.
I'd love to hear more about what you know of their last 30 years blowing snow.
Can you tell us more about the lodge fire at Grand Targhee and where these 2 machines were stored at the time of the fire? What parts had to be replaced to get them running again?
I am as excited to see and learn as much about the other Drigg ID machine as I was to see this one.
I hate to be a pest about this, but if there is anything remaining of the serial number decal I'd love to see what numbers these two machines are.
