As some of us know, the camping season is winding down. Most of us in the North will soon be winterizing our rigs and placing them in hibernation.
So as a way get rid of the winter blues, who snowmobiles? Post some pics of your sleds, rigs, trail pics and the area you ride in.
We pretty much trail ride only, except when breaking trails around the cabin, cutting across a lake to shorten the trip or mess (in a fun way!) with some other riders that were ahead of us by sitting trail side as they "catch up" because we used the lakes as a shortcut! The look is priceless when they realize they WERE ahead of you, and never saw you pass.
Ride mostly in Caddilac, Mi, and D13, Ontario. Maybe this year we will end up riding in the Gaylord and East Jordan, Mi area. Or a trip (or two) to the U.P. again.
My wife and I currently both have '11 Arctic Cats. She has a T570 (2up), and I have a F8 EXT, hauled on a '14 Sled Shed 12' clamshell trailer. I still have my '98 Arctic Cat ZL500, which the F8 replaced. Keep wondering if we should just keep it at this point or sell it. We have 12yo twin boys who will be riding soon if the desire, but keeping it means a bigger trailer!!! We need the bed space (or a bigger trailer) for rubbermaid totes when we go to the cabin in Ontario. We need to cross the lake by sled (or boat in summer) to get to it, can't just drive right up to the cabin. So hauling everything in totes in a cargo sled makes it easier, and helps keep stuff dry.
Our sleds, up in Ontario.

A cold start when leaving the house for the guys trip Feb '15. Though on the way up Feb '14 the temp dropped to -24* F in the West Branch, Mi area!!!!
So as sad as it is that our Jayco will be sleeping for a few months, as least we have something to look forward to!!!
