THERE WAS THE NEWBIE FOLLOWING HIS BUDDIES AT 140 KM Per Hour DOWN THE LAKE INTO
A STRANGE LAND OF ICE AND SNOW, HMMM....following
a guide at 140+ in and thru dangerous conditions. What else was supposed
2004 THEN IN WHITE OUT CONDITIONS "THIS YAMAHA CHOOSE TO GO THRU THE
TREES! Really THIS YAMAHA HAS CHOSEN TO GO THRU THE TREES!"...OK
riding with the buddies...on a cloudy day the trees usually show
you where the trail Is Not! A lot of snow dust was a culprit.
AND "NO I DID NOT SEE MY BROTHERS
WARNING SIGNAL" FOR THIS HAZARD!...ridding
with the buddies, and we were on a groomed trail, rode past many
danger signs, slowed down big time, and hand signals started at
JUST WARMING UP DOING A COUPLE
can I say about riding in cloudy unfamiliar conditions...buddy
just disappeared and we all stopped! Holy Crap and I watched him
crawl out from underneath it!
2004 JUST LOOK AT THE TRACKS.... OR LACK OF ANY. THE SKIS ON THIS
SLED MAKE MARKS THAT RESEMBLED DISH PANS GLIDING THRU THE SNOW!...this
was hard to comprehend...you would think BAD RIDER,
until a few of us remember reading about this sled's
was true, the skis...
AND WE HAD JUST READ ABOUT THESE SKIS IN "SNOW TECH MAGAZINE".
DUAL RUNNER BOMBARDIER SKIS PACK WITH SNOW, IN FRESH SNOW

ditched me, we had a laugh, luckily!
THEN....APPARENTLY AFTER HITTING
A TREE THE FIRE BROKE OUT? We may never know, we came across the
burnt remains of this wreck riding the Carlton Grid...this
burnt chassis sat up in the pines off the Carlton Grid for
OVER THE TOP!
wasn't there, it is true what goes up is going to come down, how
steep she goes up, seems to be pretty relevant on how it's going
to come down!
PHOTO LOOKS INNOCENT ENOUGH!...jumping
the snowbank is fun, keep in mind, even
took it slowly!
JUST LOOK AT THE
DISTANCE THE PZ FLEW IN GREEN! EVERY ONE ELSE JUMPED
THIS SNOW BANK MARKED BY THE BLUE LINES! THEN THERE IS
THE EYE OPENING FACTS....HOW FAST WERE YOU GOING?
WELL IF YOU REALLY WANTED TO SHORTEN YOUR SNOWMOBILE
MAYBE A MORE ORTHODOX METHOD WOULD OF BEEN SAFER!
THEN YOU COULD CUT CORNERS
LOOKING FOR A SHORT CUT THAT IS JUST SIMPLY IS NOT THERE!...ya
cutting corners getting out of the diamond can get tricky!
ROLL YOUR SLED A FEW TIMES ON THE
FROM SOMEONE ELSE'S MISTAKES!...maybe
boy's behaving badly is...really a thing of the past.
YOU COULD ALWAYS JUST CRASH INTO A DAIRY QUEEN LOG CAKE!
YOU COULD END UP IN THE
