Enjoy the Weather

 I recently have packed the trails on our property with a snowmobile.  It works well, but I had planned on making a type of groomer to smooth it some.  That was last summer/fall...fail...never did it.  But it has hardened up nice with the cold we have been having. They are nice to putt around on. 

 The trees above have fallen victim to the heavy snow this year.  
 It has been a good year for the snowmobilers this year.  I try to stay off the trails Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but during the week they great fun to ride.  I do not want to get in their way. But there are not many sleds out during the week, so lets play.

  In the picture above a snowmobile climbed this log pile along side of the trail.

 This was the side he exited.  I wonder how that went for him.

There seems to be a lot of talk of the weather as of late.  Not only locally, but throughout most of the States...and the rest of the world for that matter.  We have had our share of cold and snow, but parts of Australia are calling for 45°C.  That is 113°F.  Ummmmm -20F at night, +10F during the day...or...113°F.  Which one for you?

I have been playing around trying to load some video to Youtube.  It is a steep learning curve for the old guy. All of the video I have loaded has been with my Iphone, but I have contemplated getting a action camera. With what I have seen so far, I don't think that will be happening. I think it is probably best to just scrap making the videos.  

Weather, Weather, Weather...it is the talk of the World.  One would think we have never had weather before.  It always different.  And...I am guilty too!! Thanks for reading and the comments:-)

Lets get outdoors and have some fun!  ENJOY the weather!!



  1. I like your videos. It's nice to see someone riding at a leisurely pace.
    I can relate to yours a lot better than I can to a video of someone tearing down a technical trail at breakneck speed.

  2. Your videos are pretty good with a phone in your hand. And I can relate to the learning curve. I thought I made great strides with my GoPro but still didn't know a fraction of what was possible.

    1. A GoPro still may be in my future. A disclaimer here though, I just recently figured out that Youtube does a pretty good job at making them look more smooth.
