Recently I enjoyed an afternoon in the Wanderscheid Race Shop, where World Champion P.J. Wanderscheid and his brothers Mark and Dave played host to World Champions Jim Dimmerman and Steve Thorsen.

It felt like World Champions' Day!

The conversation was about Champ 440, engine building and of course Eagle River.

TGIF: snowmobile barbed-wire beater

I'm thankful that aftermarket companies are finally addressing the needs of snowmobilers who are constantly confronting barbed-wire fences while out chasing fox, coyotes and other critters.

I'm thankful I could easily mount this wire-cutter on the hood of my sled, with only a couple lag bolts.

I'm thankful I haven't come to a sudden stop and flopped onto the hood.

I'm no dummy... I'm thankful it's Friday, Dec. 6, 1971 2013.

I'm thankful some companies are REALLY pushing the envelope when it comes to rider-forward.

In the 2013 edition of the Alaska Iron Dog race, Team Arctic’s Brian Dick and Eric Quam paired as a potent team capable of winning the rugged event.

Running a pair of Arctic Cat Sno Pro 600 race sleds with a host of modifications, the duo were running in second place heading into the final few hundred miles of the event, with a shot at the win, when two component failures ended their bid.

What does it take to build a potential race-winning sled for Iron Dog? Scroll the pix to see and read the modifications that Dick and Quam incorporated into their 2013 sleds.

And be sure to read the update on their sled choice for 2014.

TGIF: ArcticInsider has the line on sweet ladies

I'm thankful for the wonderful period of early 1970s, when there were no rules for what a snowmobile "should be."

I'm thankful for snowmobile designs that don't require the use of a helmet, allowing for more stylish headwear options.

I'm thankful that no sober person would actually consider driving a Ridgerunner on a ridge.

And I'm thankful it's Friday, Nov. 8, 2013.
