    Ironic isn't it?
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Well maybe I should have worded it different. I am going to cancel driving up north hauling my sleds behind the truck in a snowstorm and just do my snowmobile trip locally instead.

    When I was up there last week for WWWWWW4 I was disappointed with the small amount of snow I brought with me so I sent some more.

    Has it arrived?

    Thumbs up event was awesome!

    Sorry so many of you missed out on a great event!!
    We only got about 6inches of that snow Sat and we had a parachutte over the fire area to stay dry and warm! It was mild on Saturday around 30degrees. The food was out of this world! (TAT's omelette of the day and homemade baked beans!!) Great poker ru...errr...cache run! Thanks Vic and TAT and everyone else who helped prepare the site and make it so hospitable!

    Trust me . . . when it comes to snowmobiling there is such a thing as having too much of a good thing . . . especially if it comes all at once.

    Yesterday there were five of us out sledding. We only did 70 or so miles and in all that time we had two crashes (nothing major . . . once my brother got caught in a drift and went into a haybale and then once he ran into an unmarked ditch which pitched him off the sled), two "fall offs" while attempting to go over a steep bank near the roads (again no physical injuries) and nine "stucks" (one of which was in chest deep snow . . . it was at this point that our group decided to turn around and abandon our attempt to ride to Dysarts for lunch seeing as it was already 1 p.m.)

    That said . . . I'm still loving this snow . . . just gotta remember to let the young 16-20 year olds get out before me so they can break trail and get stuck . . . makes the going so much easier for me then!
