Barefoot water skiing on the Mississippi River in February.wmv



I was hiking down by the Mississippi River in Minnesota with my Son and Grandkids when we spotted this boat speeding down the river toward us. The temps were about 22 degrees F on this morning.

Some Hardy Souls...GOOD TIMES!!

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center is issuing a Special Avalanche Statement for the mountains of Colorado this morning. This Special Statement will remain in effect through the upcoming weekend.
There have been two avalanche fatalities in Colorado since February 13th. This brings avalanche fatalities to 6 for the season.
Over the last week seven people have been caught in avalanches. Two people have been seriously injured and required hospital care.
Very large avalanches have been reported across the state.
This trend is expected to continue through the holiday weekend.
Do not let the upcoming holiday weekend or the nice weather in any way fool you into thinking the avalanche conditions are anything but very serious across Colorado.

A Northern Ontario Avalanche



The video is a bit long, but at about 5:12 they have some footage from the rider that got buried.

It all turned out good, could have been bad.

Crazy!!

Winter X Games 2012: First Snowmobile Front Flip Landed



I probably won't be trying this any time soon on my M8...although I did launch my RMK 800 off a 50 foot cliff at full throttle up on Rabbit Ears Mountain in Colorado a few years back. I bailed in mid air and the sled impaled a tree on impact as I rolled down the mountain past it.
GOOD TIMES!!
