My brother and his son decided to visit yesterday afternoon. We were out breaking trail within a half hour after the arrival . Not only was I forced to ride but in the 55 mile ride yesterday a lot of the time I was forced to break trail. Yesterday 3 trailers were in the lot ,today there were 5 . After waking up this morning I was yet again forced outside into the snow to rid yet again. This time we decided to take a different route, there was some trail breaking and there were some trails that a sled beat me two. Tons powder out there still untouched, with all of ny state getting snow traffic should be way down :rev: :letitsnow: . On the backside of Perkins clearing I stepped off the sled and the snow was above my knees. We ended with about 140 miles in the two rides but most of the time was playing in powder. In 3.50 weeks I have ridden as much as I did last year. :dance:

You need to get some rest. You should stay out of that powder too , you don't want to end up with a permanent smile.

Reading your tragic tale really saddened me to the point that I felt like I had to find a way to ease your suffering. I'm prepared to offer to switch places with you the next time you are put in that awful situation of forced mid-week riding after a snowstorm - you come work for me and I'll bear the burden of breaking trail and doing your riding for you.

Just trying to help is all...

Thanks for everyone's concern , I have been working all morning shoveling decks, roofs. Came home from work for lunch but am now faced with the dilemma of being forced to go riding instead of returning to work. It's a blue bird day and have only seen 3 sleds go by on the lake and am thinking it would be a sin not to go out this afternoon. :rev: :letitsnow: :winter:

I take comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one who suffers:
