it WAS a great day...  >:(
I assume that since you posted the picture that you are OK..... Hope you get the sled out.....
Yeah, thanks.  I was off the machine taking photos when my friend put it through. Bad communication on my part- I knew there was a dock under the snow and assumed that he did, too. (The ice in the vicinity of any wooden structure is never good.) He didn't.

The only reason it didn't go completely through and tumble down an underwater slope into a fifty-foot gully was that the handlebars caught on the edge of the dock while the right ski held on good ice. It took 6 of us and a lot of gear to get it out the next day. The track was frozen solid but luckily the engine did not ingest any water. The second part of the adventure was towing a frozen-up machine 7KM across the ice and up a hill back to a truck and trailer.

Nice to see you posting again, Canuck!

Thanks, Carl. I haven't been spending enough time here, lately.  ;)
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Think I'm glad I'm not in the Rockies today, it's bad enough here with snowfall that was kind of like hail!  Poor robins.
