    well ya know, they're hard to get started when they're cold. They don't do anything when they're too hot. They are high maintanence, (a cheap belt could cost $45) and they don't do anything all summer except lay around the lawn.

    We can only hope Hiram's wife doesn't see this thread!

    And now to defend the opposite sex . . . at least in my wife's case . . . she's actually pretty low maintenance . . . in fact I'm the one with the more "extravagant" tastes as I'm the one who likes the snowmobile, ATV, GPSr, computer, etc.

    And in all honesty she is a real worker . . . but then again someone in the family has to do some honest work . . . I work for the City after all . . . it could be worse though . . . I could work for the State.

    And this is why I always wait for the groomer to pass through or at the very least wait for a few others to break trail before I go out . . . I learned that the hard way a few years ago after getting stuck three or four times and spending countless hours unsticking myself.

    Yes I do agree with you, but we had so many factors urging us to go, such as... they were our boss's sleds, alcohol, and hey who can argue against the timeless classic "what else are we gunna do?"

    From the TB page it looks like this may not have been retreived or found yet. I think my son may be going up that way this summer. Let me know if he should look for this.

    Is anyone up for a rescue attempt over the 4th of July weekend?

    I think we can put in at Umsaskis Thourougfare, paddle 8 miles to Cunliffe Islnad, camp overnight and paddle 7 miles to Henderson Brook Bridge. There are at least two sets of rapids.

    If we dont have to travel to see my folks for the 4th. I'd be happy to go along. Never kayaked that far north before.
