Sled Heads Anonymous!
For several years now I have watched with envy as sled heads pull their ice shelters and tons of gear across the ice with great ease.
I found that my four-wheeler would fair pretty well until the snow got too deep, then it was almost more work trying to dig it out. Well, this year I finally made the jump into the world of snowmobiling. I love it! Whether it be pleasure riding, hunting or ice fishing I found myself an instant addict. Anyone else share this addiction?Wink

I've never ridden a snowmobile, but I sure would love to try it. Just the other day I was watching some guys on TV jumping them and stuff. I mean, they were getting some big air on those modified mobiles. The speed they can achieve is incredible.

I also know they are pretty dangerous too. They were talking about how many people get killed on snow mobiles each year. I think I remember them saying it was more than the number killed on 4 wheelers. That's alot considering there are a whole lot more people with 4 wheelers.

Still sounds like fun though Cool

CoolJust like guns, four wheelers, snowmobiles and even automobiles, the person operating them is where the danger lies. Saftey should always be top priority.

The growth in number of sled related deaths over the past few years can largely be attributed to avalanches out west. We have a lot more people into climbing slopes they just shouldn't be on.

The sport is an absolutley addictive riot. You ever get out west shoot me a PM I'll get you hooked up.

in the mid west, mich wis and minn death are most commonly atttributed to falling though the ice, yes there is the ocational not stopping befor crossing the road and going to fast to manover around a tree and just plain drunk driving, but the majority goes to thin ice....

There's finally enough snow out here in Utah to get the sleds out. Going on an ice fishing / sledding trip this weekend to Scofield res. Only trouble is which to do first, fish or ride?
