TGIF: The November 14, 2016 Edition

11/18/2016 2:47:00 PM

TGIF, snowmobiling and skiing really do go together.

I'm thankful for joy I feel on a color-coordinated ride over hill and dale.

I'm thankful for the wind-cheating qualities of 100-percent polyester.

I'm thankful the skis only appear to be stuck where the sun doesn't shine.

And I'm thankful it's Nov. 14, 2016.

Flashback: 1966 Rhinelander Hodag Cross-Country

11/15/2016 5:57:00 PM

1966 Rhinelander Hodag snowmobile Marathon.

In the early 1960s, the premier snowmobile race in North America was the Rhinelander (Wis.) Hodag Marathon.

A cross-country race, the Hodag ran through the Wisconsin Northwoods, including going down main streets in towns like Eagle River, Three Lakes and others.

It helped set the stage for the first derby on Dollar Lake near Eagle River in 1964, which would become the Eagle River World's Championship.

Click for some great pix from the 1966 edition of the Hodag, and check out the sweet Model 100 and 140 Arctic Cats!

Happy Birthday C.J. (and, as always, thanks for your amazing writing)!

11/14/2016 7:15:00 PM

C.J. Ramstad

Today (Nov. 14) would have been C.J. Ramstad's 71st birthday had he not died in a tragic automobile crash with his son, J.J., in May 2007.

C.J. was an outstanding writer because of his ability to capture the essence of whatever he was writing about.

His column (click for it) from the Jan./Feb. 1982 issue of Snowmobile Magazine is a prime example, in which he describes a tribute to Edgar Hetteen, the so-called Grandfather of Snowmobiling.

It's an especially timely column because of the recent passing of David Johnson, Edgar's brother-in-law, who plays and important role in the story.

Happy Birthday C.J.

And thanks for all you gave the sport of snowmobiling.
