Old guy, new sport

Hello all:. Signing in and introduce myself, at 65 years old I purchased a 2008 Polaris 550 touring edge. One thing I want to get off my bucket list, I have used snowmobiles in the past bet never "organized" never been on a groomed trail, avid Hunter (mostly archery) and fishing fool hoping to see some nice winter sights. Live in North Western mass close to NH / VT line and have a hunting camp (now snowmobile camp) in Burlington Maine right on snowmobile trail sr81 on Lincoln's town line.
So far in this endeavor alone and needing guidance.
Looking forward to this total endeavor.

Welcome to the sport. I've been an avid snowmobiler since 1972 and am 78 years old. To far away to ride with you. Farthest east I've ever been was Spanish Ontario Jan of 2000.
Started in Sault Ste Marie Canadian side, up to Wawa, Hearst across to Timmins and back. that was a 1400 mile trip in 6 days.

This site is not the most active. If you haven't yet, try Hard Core Sledder which is the most active.

Then Snowmobile Fanatics.My first ride was a 1971 Polaris. In 40 years I owned 49 Polaris 2 strokes and one of their 4 strokes.

2012 I switched to SKIDOO 4 strokes
Enjoy, and stay safe out there. I'm going riding this afternoon

Merry Christmas

It's cheaper to replace the decals, then build up a little sled. The first time I drove a snowmobile was 7/4/72. It was a 71 488 Polaris Charger.

One of the best online casinos. They have been working for a long time, there have never been problems with payments. A lot of games give bonuses for bets, as well as a bonus on your birthday. When playing at low rates, you can withdraw a decent amount if you're lucky. Payments come in 1-2 days. They work with many well-known payment systems. In my opinion, the best casino https://your-casino-choice.com/ that can be found on the Internet.
