Essential Trail Stops

I've heard it from people who know: snowmobiling in the heart of the Adirondacks is amazing.

It's the little things, like the pleasant, uncrowded, Department of Motor Vehicles. Register your out of state sled with no lines, and no waiting. We suggest joining a local snowmobile club prior to registration. It knocks the registration fee from $100 down to $45. Joining a club is usually in the $30 range and you can register multiple sleds under one club membership!

Things To Do Indoors

We are right in the thick of winter here in the Adirondacks and let me tell you what, it has been COLD! There have been many consecutive nights of negative temperatures — some nights as low as -20, with wind chills closer to -40! 

While there are tons of great outdoor activities in the Adirondacks, after a few hours of playing in the snow you may just want to do something inside.  Here are a few ideas to keep you toasty!

Try it, you'll like it

Things change.

When I was a kid I didn't like brussel sprouts. Seeing these mini cabbages on my plate would trigger schemes for their disposal. Fortunately, there was a dog available.

Now I think roasted brussel sprouts with butter and romano cheese are delicious. The problem wasn't the brussel sprouts. It was how they were prepared. Turns out, boiling them to mush is not the best way of cooking them. (Sorry, Mom!)

I have found this applies to many different things. So, maybe your problem with winter is... the recipe.

Winter Events

 

 

This year, I made a resolution to stay home more. 

Well, that went out the window fast! There are just way too many great events going on to sit at home and miss out. There is a little something for everyone. I can head out with a few of my friends, have a "day date" with my husband, or head out with the family to one of the many awesome family-friendly events. Why would I want to stay in and miss out!? Here are some upcoming not-to-miss events!

5 destinations to visit via snowmobile

Destination Snowmobile!

Got the itch? No, not that kind of itch! I'm talking about the one where you are pacing back in forth in front of your sled, just waiting for enough snow to get out on the open trail. I know plenty of riders here in the 'dacks that are waiting impatently for that moment. While you wait, ease that anticipation by planning your rides of the 2015-16 season. Then when the snow does fly, you can spend more time riding and less time arguing with your buddies as to where you want to go.

Sleds, Beer, Cold Pizza: Just One Of The Guys

A Girl In Boy's Clothing

Ok - so I'm not exactly the proverbial wolf in sheep's clothing, but this week I am trying to be one of the guys. You know, I am trying to be laid-back and just go with the flow. Ugh.

You see, I am surrounded by the male gender - always have been - I grew up with 3 older brothers, and I can tell you this much, when I was old enough to break free from my tomboy ways, I did (for the most part) and I have been fairly successful (I think?) at being a girl ever since.
