This time of year in Maine it gets dark early and it’s cold. Because winter can be a real drag for some, I’ve always made it a point to get out and enjoy the winter. I’m a pretty big snowmobile fan and am frequently sharing stories and pictures with the team I work with.
Recently, I invited several of the guys and a couple of our customers to come sledding with me up north for a couple of days.
First Time Sledders:
Jon – Marketing
Dale – Sales
Jim – Sales
Tom – Field Engineering
Mike K. – Development
Mike P. – Scrutinizer Product Manager
Phil – Customer
Dave – Customer
I tried to pump them up by sharing videos of crashes or little clips of me missing turns and getting stuck so I was anxious to get some fresh stories on the guys I work with.
With only the best intentions (kidding) I showed the guys how to fish tail and kick up dust to blind the riders behind. I also demonstrated how to jump into the soft powder on the side of the trails to enjoy the deep snow. I played down the possibility of getting stuck. Heh heh. And oh the fun we had. 🙂 Everyone of the first time sledders got stuck.
Anyone want to come sledding next year?
