    No biggie, I never get rid of old snowboards.
    I have close to a dozen in my attic, mainly for these purposes. They also work good for very early and very late season riding. Rocks? What rocks?

    Yep, We used to do it with a tube tied to the bumper of a 4x4. In the snow covered parking lots I remember hitting 60 mph. Then we did it up the mountain roads until a buddy of mine's girlfriend slung him off the mountain side into the trees. Broke his leg in (2) places. We tied his leg up in splints and off the the ER we went !!! Dave

    That video just brought a tear to my eye. I saw myself and everyone of my friends in there. No kidding. That looks like something I would do. Well, might have done. Well, still do it.

    When we get snow here I usually make a phone call to a friend to find out that PD is not out unless it's an emergency. So, let's take advantage of it!! City streets are made to be used.

    Take the car/truck hoods and throw em away boys. You don't need them anymore. Trust me on this one. I just so happen to have access to as many plastic truck bedliners as I care to get. These things blow a car hood out of the water. Plastic works great on snow! LOL My wife is still wondering when her 34 yr old husband will grow out of his adolesance. (sp) LOL

    Play king of the bedliner next time ya get a chance.

    We used to do the same thing but with four people on a tobagon and a snowmobile back in '69.

    One winter my buddy was towing my car home with a chain (I was steering mine). As we turned a corner he thought he'd be funny and whip me around the turn. As mine slid sideways, his followed. We both went spinning off onto a golf course.
