Day 4 of Colorado Snowmobile Trip / December 2011


It was a great 4 day adventure to Northern Colorado. We chased the best snow we could find and didn't decide on our destination till the last minute as we were driving out west. It snowed the first 2 nights and we had clear cold days the whole trip. Everybody came home safe with good memories of riding the powder in the trees and the daily campfire lunch...GOOD TIMES!!

Day 3 of Colorado Snowmobile Trip / December 2011

My ride, 800 Arctic Cat / 162" long track. 0 miles at the start of this trip, getting miles on it with the good snow.
There's a creek under my sled. The sled bucked me off and decided to dive into the hidden creek. It's good to have alot of man power to lift and yank it out.
 Another stuck.
 Taking a break in trees. Two days ago the big Ski Doo had 0 miles. By the third day it was learning to love the powder. 2012 Ski Doo 800 / 163" long track.

 Lunch break in our forest lunchroom, Livin the life...

Another great day in mountains!

1000 Miles + 24 hours + Rain + Snow + Snowmobiles = First Day of Decemeber 2011 Mountain Snowmobile Trip

There is snow in dem yonder mountains.
 New Cats' first day doing what it was built for...transporting me into the mountain powder.
 The 2 youngsters wrestling a 11 foot long Ski Doo as darkness falls.
Regrouping in the darkness at the top of the mountain after slaying the powder and bouncing off a few trees, at 10,500 feet.
 Once again, Adventure is what one makes of it.

24 hours: 9:00 PM - 9:00 PM...start driving 1000 miles through rain, icy highways, 1 flat tire on a trailer, 2 hours of sleep in the moving truck during the night. Arrive in Wyoming, check out the new Ski Doos in town, grab a quick lunch at a fast food, gas up the sleds on the trailer then drive 60 miles into the mountains. Get a cabin, change into our snowmobile clothes, drive another 20 miles. Unload the sleds, ride up the mountain into a falling snow with darkness approaching. Have a great time riding in the fresh powder, ride down off the mountain in a falling snow in the dark. Load the sleds, drive 20 miles back to town, change clothes, go to the local bowling alley and have some great hamburgers. Walk back to our cabin and call it a day...almost. Turn on computer, go out to the truck grab a cold beer, crack it open and look at the moon and stars in the clear cold night, sit on my sled on the trailer remembering the last 24 hours and come back in and post this blog.

Good Night!
