Ross, Dan and I took the day off yesterday and headed up to Speculator for a day of snowmobiling... nothing like paying hookey to ride all day :D

Part of the riding was flat out smooth curvy trails :drool where I'm sure we did NOT exceed the speed limit :D .... and the other part of the trails were whooped out spring like conditions that were pretty abusive to the body :doh LOL ...we definitely got a good workout in, that's for sure LOL ...all in all, a great day :rock


Ross and I backpacked our cameras around with us for the day (my D200 now has over 100 sled miles under it's belt LOL)... and we found a couple places where we could play around a little..

Here's a view from the first place we stopped to play...

Thats our buddy Dan who is also part owner in my trailer... the sled is a Yamaha Vector ESR which is a 3cyl, 4-stroke, 1000cc... its more of a cruising sled then a jumping and playing around sled... but he does it well on it...

This looks like a lot of fun. I'd love to try it some day, but I would never see myself getting hooked on anything outside in the cold... just hate the weather. Its too bad that the state isn't as friendly for off-road motorcycles or 4x4s as they are snowmobiles.

your getting pretty close to the trails i grew up riding. next time you are headed up that way and you want a fun pit to play in make a stop in Poland where 8 and 28 split. There is an old dump out side of town that got plowed under in the early 80's. when there is fresh powder there are awsome drifts and 80 ft tall banks to climb.

Next winter definitely. Gotta save the leave for Ireland in March ;)

This first half of the year is going to be very busy for me. I start some more training classes for the fire department soon. Then I'm not doing anything but relaxing for the entire summer.
