What's fascinating about snowmobiling?
Having just read about snow and sleds and trails again, I have to wonder what the hubub is all about. I've never known anyone who does a lot of snowmobiling, er, sledding, so I'm a little ignorant. Seems like driving through the woods in the freezing cold on a noisy machine wouldn't be all that attractive. Then again, I've never been on one before.
What is the attraction here? Why do you sled? How would you convince me to take a ride?
I'll take a stab at it.........
You can go and see places that are inaccessable any other time of year. Its been a few years since I've owned a sled, I sold mine back when our weather patterns started changing and the price of good sleds started climbing. I cross country ski alot now and find it gives me the same adventure as sledding did, however, I would still go if the opportunity presented itself, such as being able to purchase a "good" sled that would get me to where I want to go or going with generous friends. New sleds today can cost up to 10,000 dollars not including all the accessories that you "need," certainly unafforable for alot of Mainers which is why the industry DEPENDS on folks from "away" to come to Maine. Believe me when I say, If you tried it, you'd like it but its just gotten too expensive for me. :eek:
