    Must be great to have lots of disposable income to thrash snowmachines like that.

    I used to have that kind of disposable income and man was it fun ... Funny thing is, the sled is still on the snow in the hands of my 15 y.o.

    It's a bummer he was so close to the top when he lost it.

    Any wreck you can walk away from is a good one. That tumble had to have rattled his cage pretty good
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Yeah, same thing. I routinely go beating my guns against trees and rocks.

    But yeah, yard sale.

    I'm guessing he may have had the wind knocked out of him and hence was unable to scream or shout expletives.

    I am guessing both ends were locked up tight and that deep in the recesses of his brain a switch would have been flipped if he screamed resulting in the immediate evacuation of his bowels.
