Uncle Toys,

I don't have any digital photos of my friends and I yet. We got a digital camera a year or so ago and have finally started using ti with our new puppy. I really don't know much about it yet. So I will try. Yes it is about the speed, teh freedom, teh cold crisp air, the adrenaline rush, the scenic beauty, being able to go place and see things you would ordinarily not be able to sccess int eh summer months. It is the commrradere, the friendships, the travel, the tinkering. It is about seeing wild animals like deer, moose, quail, pheasant, reindeer, eagles, bears, etc. It is just like boating in so many ways. When we do long distanc eover night trips it is visiting new towns, in far out lying areas. Meeting people from all over the world. Climbing mountains, frozen lakes and rivers, so much to see, and experience. Oh, and it is all about racing your buddies on those frozen lakes for bragging rights till next weekend. And I cannto forget when you cross the border into Canada, especially Quebec, the table top ballet is second to NONE!

So help me out my fellow snowmobilers, anyone have any cool photos to show these guys what they are missing?

Shane, glad to hear you had fun. We have had extremely good snow for this time of year. They have measured 102" above Gothic(Crested Butte). The back bowls of Vail have recieved 7-8' of snow so far. A couple more storms and we will have more than we had all last winter. It has been fun so far!!!!!

Can't wait to strap on the boards and bang thru the bumps in a few months here in Cincy (man made snow ) Ahhhhhh, I need to buy a sled, I swear, that is the next toy in my box. Now.....I did break out the plow and spreader today and service them for the season/lack of season to come. does that count?!?!?!?!

Default Hey Shane

I just bought this toy to get me through winter, and to somewhat satisfy my snowmobile needs. I had a 700SX but I sold it because it was getting to be too much praying for snow all the time, then driving 7-8 hrs upstat and arriving on ****ty trails.

I'm thinking about renting this year with my wife. Do you know of any good places to stay and rent sleds? I want SPORT sleds at least 600s preferably 700s. NOT double tanks!

I used to ride Bennington S. Vermont, Old Forge, Tug Hill, and St. Agathe Canada regularly.

I'm looking to book about a week somewhere in February. Wanna try and get some other friends to go too.

Mike

Default Forgot, here's my new winter toy

2000 Honda 400 EX. A snowmobile without the need for snow!

It's still not the same, but much more useable down her in NJ
