First Tracks of the Season


12/13/2016 3:44:00 PM

First snowmobile tracks of the season.

Glorious fresh-fallen snow, sunshine, brand new snowmobiles...

...plus chisel-plowed fields, fear and white-painted bowling balls littering the ditches.

What's not to love about setting the first tracks of the season?

Sled Prep: Before I Even Click Off One Mile


12/12/2016 8:23:00 AM

Arctic Cat sled prep for the first ride, by mile-clicking ArcticInsider.

"Before I even clicked off a mile, I (_____fill_in_the_blank____) to my sled," are words that live in infamy with a group of my snowmobile friends.

But as much as we joke about it, there actually are a few things I do to a new sled before I take that first ride.

And with enough snow on the ground here in the Twin Cities area, here are some pix of the process before I take my first ride this afternoon.

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.
