I laughed out loud when I read a headline on the KJ's website this morning: "Franklin, Somerset County Snowmobile Trails Not Ready Yet." Really? The photo accompanying the headline was of brown grass with a few patches of snow. Are there people out there who are that stupid that would think, "there's a little snow...why not use the trails?"
Maine Game Wardens feel confident they know the location of the snowmobiles used by three men missing after being out on Rangeley Lake last month. Officials are still searching for the bodies. The search could get a boost with the use of a new underwater remote controlled vehicle.
This year’s Snodeo in Rangeley is scheduled for the end of this month. The controversy comes from the fact that three snowmobilers went through the ice on December 30th and their bodies have yet to be recovered from the lake. Some feel that having Snodeo is disrespectful and others feel it is appropriate.
"You've got to check out Moose Alley when you're in Rangeley!" my daughter, Michelle, told me. "It's Unbelievable," she added. So, that was part of the plan when my buddy Mike Gagne and I hit the road on Wednesday.
