Winter is coming. That means people out on snowmobiles. I admit, I'm no snowmobile safety expert, although I think I'm a safe rider, but I have to go out on a limb and say that what these two Russians tried is a bad idea.
UPDATE-11:35 am. Two missing teens have been found safely just outside of Andover. According to a story on WMTW, Ty Howard-Gotto, 15, and his friend Jonah May, also 15, of Rhode Island, were located just after 10 am on Feb. 17. The WMTW story said he boys spent the night in a small shelter, and they survived the night in good shape.
I love looking at old snowmobiles. I've traveled to Millinocket to visit the museum before. That's a long ride to see old sleds. Thankfully, it's just a hop, skip and a jump to China to see them tomorrow (Sunday). For me, it's barely a hop!
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?"
