Sure you like snowmobiling....but we want to know "how bad do you have it?"

Do you turn your air conditioner all the way down so you can sit in your new jacket and bibs?

I got it bad, real bad, let's hear guys!

We have it so bad that is all we talk about. Not 1 day goes by that we arent telling sled stories or planning trips for next season. We are looking into renting a house for the winter in cochrane.There has even been talk around the kitchen table of grass dragging down the road from here and water skipping at Chandos lake.Every day I wear something with ski-doo on it. At work I have sled pics of me and permafrost on the fridge so when it is 120 in the bakery I have my moment of zen right there.I am wriggling with anticipation for upcoming sled season.Work is secondary in the winter sledding comes first.
 
 
If the snow doesnt come to you....GO FIND IT!!!

There is nothing wrong with shinning your sled every day, comming on SW to see new sled stories or just to talk about sleds cause everyone around you thinks your a freak cause you hope its gonna snow in june

I am always shining it, soon the paint will be rubbed off.  I started it up the other day just to rev it and listen to the exaust note and i almost gassed myself, my buddy down the road could see the smoke coming out the door and hear it running.

I'm a lot on the net trying to find new add ons I can put on my sled. I 'm on this site at least 5 times a day and as most of you, I repeatadly shine my sled when I go to the cottage. I also spent a day with my brother at the dealership looking thru microfiche and parts just for fun. My brother has it bad too, he even ordered and received his REV tarp last week, it's apparently the first one to be available to customers.

I have it bad but probably not as bad as some.  I have a bunch of pics on the wall in my office and a million pics in my computer that I change often as the desktop theme.  I have my sled at my cabin but I keep a spare hood in my garage down here just to remember how it looks in person.

I have it bad. I let my buddy have my trailer in the off season.He puts his 2 sleds on it and it is stored in a barn ten miles away. I must have my sleds at home.It just would not feel right if they were not at home and I couldn't see them whenever I wanted to. The guys at work think I am nuts cause I talk about snowmobiling all the time,even in the summer. Just a couple weeks ago we went to the dealer to shoot the breeze. I bought new carbides and put them on the 700 already.

I have it so bad that:

I can't remember not having it

I had to build (3 years, still workin on it&#33
a second home in snow country so I wouldn't  have exotic motel bills as an excuse not to go.

A lot of my friends have decided to give up on "normal" lives and have joined me.

My wife decided she would rather be somewhere else (poor bas##rd)

I find it difficult to sell a sled, unless it's to a friend. I would rather keep it for a spare to lure another friend into the sport!

There's more but....
Was that a snowflake?

How bad do I have it??

People that come over to my house put on jackets. (no kidding)

I sent in for Ski-doo literature in the hopes of getting power specs for the V1000 4 stroke engine to compare to the Yamaha claims. (didn't have any
)

I'm in here at least 4 or 5 times a night while at work. (too busy with home projects at home).

I found myself looking for pictures of snowstorms the other night (where I found the live webcam in MT of the blizzard).

My co-workers think that I'm certifiably insane.  
 

I'm already trying to figure out how I can afford another  winter trip to YNP next February.

I'm living on a shoestring budget so that I can pay off bills early and buy a new sled (and replace the Saturn).

I even eyeballed an old new stock rotary engine on Ebay with the thoughts of plunking in the JD chassis.

Now why would you want to see a support group?  I kinda LIKE this addiction.  


Besides, normal sucks!

How about offering to mow the neighbors yard just so you can get a better smell of his two stroke lawnboy?

Ohhhhh man,

Don't even get me started on this one!

I'd say I've got it worse than ALL of you!

I'm currently working on my project sled EVERY night!  It's awesome...and you get great deals on all your parts because it's the off-season!

Can't wait until the Fall!!!
