Buy them! You won't be sorry - even if it doesn't work out this year anymore - it'll be a good investment for next year or in the years to come! If you don't buy them - I fear you'll be kicking yourself for not doing so. 2 sleds with a trailor? I'd go for it Gville!:)

we have ahad a light couple years but you are always going to have that once in a while. The other years make up for it. I'm sure would enjoy them if you had them. It gets me out in the winter to enjoy the great outdoors. You will always get a yes vote from me.

Thanks T.C. and oma2.
I talked to the guy a while ago and told him that they were pretty much sold.
It's a deal I just cant pass up on, and your right, if I dont get to use them much this year, there is allways next year.
Now I need to look for places to ride.

I'm thinking that this "craigs list" stuff is all a scam.
I dont trust it.
They put those ads out there, but never respond.
Oh well,.........

Hi Gville - yeah, that does seem to happen alot doesn't it - alot of rude folks out there on Craigslist that never reply.

On a lighter note though - I replied to an ad in their "wanted" section one day a few months ago and the guy got back to me within in about an hour - he starts out his reply by saying "How's it going TC" and it was Hurley - LOL!

LOL TC.

I called the people Saterdsy, and Sunday, and as usuall always have to leave a message. Told them I was going to buy them, and had the cash on me.

I had a message on my phone this morning from the party that had the snowmobiles for sale saying that they were sold.

Oh well,......

I was watching the forcast, and saw that it's supposed to get up to 40 degrees on Sunday.
That might melt a lot of snow, so maybe it's a good thing.

yeah,... I have a pick-up truck, but that really aint good.
It's too hard to get it out!
I'm getting a trailer SOON!
I rode the sled last night in my subdivision, and was wondering what the heck did I do?
It's kind of scary fast!
I actually said "holy shit" in the bsck of my mind when I hit the throttle.
I need to hook up with Oma2 and her family.

Sorry to near that. I never met him but could tell by reading his posts that he was a gentleman through and through. He will be missed by many.

Hopefully you're wearing a helmet? I usually wear one 24/7 just in case - sometimes it's hard to sleep with it on - but you get use to it after awhile.

Always wear a helmut!
I also always wear my steel toed boots to bed, because you just never know what might fall on your feet in the middle of the night!
Espesially after that meteorite fell in Russia!
If those folks had helmets, and steel toed boots on, there wouldnt have been so many injuries.
