No truck? No problem!

In this time of high gas prices maybe these guys have the right idea.

One time a pair of guys from New York showed up at Randy's to pick up a '73 Ski-Doo TNT hulk Randy had. It didn't have a motor so it was no big deal to load into the back of the Dodge Caravan they'd brought. Yeah, a Dodge Caravan with all the seats out. It was after we'd loaded the '73 that I managed to sell them a '72 TNT 295 (I think it was a 295. It was a single anyway.) that Randy had hanging around. That one was mostly complete but without a seat. Both sleds fit inside the Caravan with all the doors closed. The guys said they'd brought the van because it was such a long drive and gas prices were so high. That was 2 or 3 years ago, gas was half the price it is now!

Hiatus stinks don't it?

Figure I'll try to get over here once a month maybe. I just got back from California, I spent almost 2 weeks in Burbank. No snowmobiles there...

One of my students knew about snowmobiles though, had a Sno-Jet he said. Of course he's from Michigan. Very few people are actually from greater L.A.
