9 weeks till the first ride. last year i was snowmobiling dec 3 on the back side of Blue Mountain in 2 feet of powder. driving through Collingwood seeing the green lawns and the rain, i gave an earful to the guys who got me hyped and made me drive up there. 5 miles outside of collingwood(must be the elevation change), the rain turned to snow, the lawns were white and the side of the hiway was covered. there was enough snow that i got the van stuck. i'm hoping that the warm summer that really heated the water in the lakes will create a ton of lake effect snow when the cold air hits the warm water and here i come snowmobiling the first weekend in DECEMBER !!!! if g-d loves me he will make it the last weekend in Nov.
