    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    I'm a little concerned about when Jake rolls over 11K and how he's going to show that in a picture.....

    Almost anyone can go up n down, but you add that zig'n style fosho. I'm happy as hell this season at almost 1000 miles and it looks like I'm done for the year.

    That looks like an excellent place to let the sled scream. My wife and I were in Anch. looking at an M1000, I was in terrible lust, but the wife gave me The Look, and so that was that.

    ya oh ya theres plenty of room out there to let it scream. problem is with april snow if i let it scream i'll hurt myself, hard to carve too. if i 'm playing i'll take mid march or early march snow...M1000, would like to try one, if the M8 had 2.5" paddles on it i think it'd be a whole new beast. i think the new pro RMK's out climb the cats due to the larger paddles. but i still love ridin' my sled sideways and haven't seen another sled that likes to be sideways like mine does!! or my zig-n style as TWB puts it.
    a podium...oh geez
