Hey James! Snowmobile question

Hey James!
How was the snowmobile season this year?

Did you guys get enough snow to make it worthwhile?

How far up did you have to go for good snow?

In the last several years, it just seemed like we did not get all that much snow up north for snowmobiling.

Hope it was great!

this year there was snow EVERYWHERE! as of 3 days ago the UP had between 3-4' on the ground, it was great. last year i was fighting some electrical issues, but discounting that we usually end up with over 2000 miles, this year will be slightly under that, but there's a long story that involves half-crashing a sled and waiting a few weeks before buying the new one... lol if you're thinking about getting into it, by all means give me a buzz and i'm more then happy to chat

see ya'll when the snow melts

Yup, I heard best snow conditions in years around Kalkaska, including my place near Mancelona.

I still didn't get a chance to get up there though.

HA!
It is great to hear that Da Yoop and the northern lower half of MI got lots of snow!
It is really poor when we do not do well on the snow front during one of our winters!

I went to the snowmobile show.
$12,000 for a top of the line Artic kitty. Hmmm. Seems kind of steep!
But probably worth it if it is used alot!

No pics?

Dwight! That is terrible news!
What happened?
I will bet you had tons of time to go, when we had no snow!!

Very cool!
How did you get your snowmobile to hover in the air like that?

Why no pic of how you landed it? Hope it went well!
