Well since we had our first snow storm of the season here at Wild Eagle Lodge I thought I would get everybody in the mood for the snowmobile season. I have added a link for an episode of American Snowmobiler from a few years ago when they did a special on the World Championship Derby here in Eagle River. You just have to select it from the panel of shows they have available, the episode is named snowmobile derby. I am looking forward to this year’s season and hoping to put a few hundred miles on the old Polaris this winter. I guess it’s time to get the sled all set to go for the year before the weather gets too cold, I always wait until the season starts to do this and end up outside in the cold changing spark plugs and all the other yearly maintenance that needs to be done. This year I am going to try and be smart about it and get it done when it’s 60 out, not 10. More than likely I’ll be taking a quick ride to Wild Eagle and use the heated snowmobile garage for a few minutes to work on my sled. For all of you near the southern part of the state we will have a booth at the Snowmobile USA show this weekend in Milwaukee WI, if you are in the neighborhood stop on by and say hi. It’s a great time to get some gear or parts you need, plan the perfect trip, or buy a whole new sled. We hope to see you there.
