TGIF: The Jan. 15, 2016 Edition


1/15/2016 7:19:00 AM

Sno-Pony and Sonic Challenger snowmobiles.

I'm thankful for the wild, chest-pounding days of yesteryear, when snowmobile manufactures built over-the-top speed machines to promote cute little consumer sleds that were barely fasters than today's 120s.

I'm thankful that long before there were "SledNecks" decals on every 18-year-old's truck, sled and bedroom mirror, there were "STP" decals on every truck, sled and bedroom mirror.

Seriously, I'm thankful when ANYONE builds a sled that looks like a rocketship.

And I'm thankful it's Friday, Jan. 15, 2016.

Newsbits: Jump to These for Infotainment


1/15/2016 7:14:00 AM

Expensive to recover a sunken snowmobile.

One of my New Year's resolutions for this site is to reprise the semi-regular sharing of interesting news links that come across my desk via the inter-webz.

Some are informative, some are wonky, some are entertaining.

Infowonkiness? Enterformative? Wonkytainment!

Thinking about producing a slick edit of a crazy waterskip? Consider THE COST OF SLED RESCUE in case of failure.

Whew! Just in the nick of time: a crucial snowmobile trail reroute to prevent BLOWING THE LID OFF OF A MASSIVE LANDFILL!

Get Your #20FootTucker Selfie and Win $250


1/14/2016 7:55:00 AM

#20FootTucker selfie of Tucker Hibbert.

Starting this past weekend at Canterbury and continuing at each stop through the remainder of the 2016 ISOC snocross season, a 20-foot-tall Tucker Hibbert will command the skyline while waiting for you to take a selfie (and get a chance to win a $250 gift card).

I realize that the real Tucker is much taller than 20 feet, but the crew needed something they could fit in the Ram box of a truck in between races.

So get your #20FootTucker groove going!

Looks Like Winter. Hoping the Same for You.


1/5/2016 7:29:00 AM

Arctic Cat Crosstrek graced by snow and frost.

There's an old saying that I often hear describing snowmobilers:

"We need snow in our back yard to believe that it's truly winter out there."

In the last week I been from the southeast corner of Minnesota all the way to the Northwest, and I can tell you the ground is white everywhere in between. And lots of snowmobilers are out enjoying it.

If that's not the case where you live, then I sincerely hope that it soon will be.

Winter arrived in parts of Minnesota last week, delivering enough snow to make tracks in the northern part of the state.
