This was going to be the year for me to get some serious miles. I bought my sled new 2/98 and the snow melted the next week statewide. Result-no miles for first year. Had one trip in the 99/2000 winter season to U.P. Went to U.P again 2/01 and fell asleep driving my truck. Rolled the truck and ruined the trip. I have just over 1000 miles on my 4 year old sled. Now I want a new model but can't justify it.
I think I have ridden every weekend since we had snow and that was about 2 weeks before christmas. I have put on about 800 miles so far and hopefully we will get some more snow because it is getting pretty scarce!!
We grain farm here in Sask. so the winter is slow as far as alot of work goes. We usually ride during the week, and spend the weekends with our daughters, doing the family thing. On the sleds at least 4 days a week.. Winter has been crappy, but enough snow if you don't mind changing ski rods every 500 miles.. We put on 2565 miles so far, and we got 3 inches of snow yesterday.. Should make 3000, this year....
