Slim Shamus Shambles “No such thing as TOO much snow”

Ok, if your a snowmobiler keep reading if not read on anyway. To much snow is not in our vocabularies. In fact, the more snow the better! The 3 worst words a snowmobiler can hear is “I hate snow” especially from what I like to call a winter hater. You know those people who want to go south all winter OR hate to shovel. ( Just a second I take that back nobody likes to shovel ) But you know who I mean. They are always the ones who look a snowmobiler right in the pie hole and say smiling ” some glad it rained last night ” Jes boy, all I can say is them people (winter haters) are some lucky there aint an all night suicide vest shop around the corner. Burns my arse, you never hear a snowmobiler say to a winter hater jes buddy to bad about that hurricane, sorry about your trailer down there in old people’s land! Nope, we just mind our own business and pray for snow. It’s Canada people, it’s gonna snow!
Anyway picture this. -10 with 12 inches of fresh powder ( that’s snow for all you winter haters) on a perfectly groomed trail and your at the camp and just woke up from an evening of hot wings and wobbly pops. Suns shining?…check. Sleds sparked up?…check. Gas?…check. Oil?…check. (for the non 4 stroker eh buddy) Trail map?….check. Sled buddies have all showed up? (except one there is always one guy your waiting for)…check. Wallet?…check. You always need your wallet when snowmobiling. I’m not trying to say snowmobiling is expensive but it cost more to going snowmobiling for 6-8 weeks a winter than it did to put man on the moon. (not kidding) Anyways, wallet?…check. Cell Phone?…check. That’s just in case your significant other calls and says your late for dinner with the in laws and your 159 miles and 4hrs away from home. Whoops, dont worry bud next July when the snow’s all gone they will have forgotten all about it. Cause you been working your arse off for the last 3 months doing them never end’in honey do lists just so you can go snowmobling in the dead of winter next year at -700. Snowmobilers…..we are a crazy bunch! Wouldn’t have it another way. Until next time folks, I’m outta here.
