Ok So last Saturday I get my sled going and attemp to get the wife's going. Hers started right up and then died and would not start. Mind you this was the first start of the of the new season. I let is sit for a bit awent back and immediately smelled gas. I then noticed gas coming from the exhaust. WTH.... Took off the exhaust and it poured out. Thankfully we have this thing called the internet. Googled, "fuel in the exhaust in snowmobile" quickly found out it was either a sticky needle or a stuck float. Went back out took the bowl off first carb sprayed it down and put it back on. Took off 2nd bowl and WHALA lo&behold..... ICE. Thank god for hair dryers. Lesson learned?, drain carbs at the end of the season. Put the machines on the trailer and heaed up Oilwell road. There was about 12-14 iches up there at the parking site. We headed to Caribou Lake only for the reason that we heard there was a new lodge opening this year there. So headed back in about half way the snow fall about doubled. There was almost 2 feet. It was nice to play around one again. Got to the lake and found that there are many more cabins on the lake than I remembered from a couple of years ago. Man, there is a whole community out there. Came upon this place that looked like a lodge but quickly found out it was just a nice place with friendly owners. They told me the new lodge is actually on 42nd lake. Not too far away however that it was going to open on the 20th of Dec. So we played around some more as the sleds where running great and then proceded to head back. All in all it was a great first ride. Coming back out it started to snow... of course. Got back to Soldotna and found that there had been a fresh snowfall here as well. My luck is begining to change, now if I could just scratch everyone off my gift list........ Enjoy the riding wherever you are!!!
