Life is sure sweet these days.....no need for a clock in our lives anymore, pretty much living by the sun. Another day another ride on the sleds......I seen and almost hit a mink on the trail the other day......

Bad day riding.....Mrs skunk came into a hard 90 degree right hand turn a little too hot and put her sled on it's side. It wasn't too crazy of a crash but the handle bars smacked her on the inside of her leg just above the knee. That knee is now twice the size and her leg is all swollen up and really black n blue......couple hours in emerge but nothing broken....

You really don't know anything about the ski-doos ?......maybe it's time you stopped the trashing of them eh

An yeh she knows.....who the heck do you think she has been watching do it for almost 30 years...sheeeesh....she Just hasn't practised enough

But seriously yammr......zero incidents during the trail race this year ?.........Mrs skunk opted to try driving back after the accident....she made it about 35 miles and decided to pack it in and head where a vehicle could pick her up, after in the vehicle she went faint and they opted for an ambulance to come get them on the highway while they tried to help her and keep her calm...........we were dealing with her sled and then had to get home ourselves on our sleds.....I never knew any of this until I was in my garage and checked my phone, our 5 hour trip turned into an 11 hour sled day lol.....

its very bad when the arctic cat part of your snowmobile fails, I was relieved the new parts held up for a fun ride.

11 hours is a typical sled day for me. buy her a Vector, they are very stable.

lol at the TOTY, was this your first 50 mile day, lol
