Also if you can send donation to Montana Snowmobile Assoc.

I have a couple ideas to add: *http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Write letters to your local Representatives, Senators and Congress persons as well. Call their offices. Might as well write to the President too. http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Tell them about the fun of snowmobiling, Invite them to ride with. If you get them into this activity just once they will see a different view.
http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif Give A Gift To Your Senators And Congresspersons: A Subscription To A Snowmobile Magazine. http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif *They Will Read At Least One, This Way They See Snowmobiling In Full Color!http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
This could be a full time job. Maybe some of you can run for office. Just think, if one (or many) of the leaders from the snowmobiling industry were to take a public office.

was just out there in jan, * i had a interesting talk with a few of the park service people and they stated that as far as they had heard they would be shuting the park down this spring, *and these gentelmen made it really clear that this is what they wanted. *just remember this, *a story that was told to us. * a lady in the park said," you have to be very careful when you are riding in the park because just last week a guy hit a elk,, * *the person who she said this to replyed," thats to bad how is the guy." * *the lady replyed," well i don;t know , *but he killed that elk." * just a thought.

Snowmobiling in yellowstone is nothing like anywhere else in the country.
first off, the scenery is really cool, and the trails are nice and wide. it would be a nicer ride with out the 45 speed limit, but i absoulty understand why it is there. i highly recomend going to the park, its cool.
seccond off, almost everyone there rents, and i would asume has never riden a snowmobile before. *i see where people get there bad ideas about snowmobiling. *most people are alright, but some will ride down the midle of the trail while you are trying to pass them.. and they are going 25, etc. *there is TONES of snowmobiles in the park, its nuts. more than i have ever seen anywhere.
imo, to keep the park open, they should only rent 4 stroke sleds, and if you want to bring your 2 stroke sled into the park, it should cost another $5 or $10. *it would make many of the enviromentalists happy because of the dramatic reduction in noise and polution, and would increase revenu for the park. *
