Wife couldn't go, so I called my buddy Brad and asked him if he
wanted to go sleddin' He said "DUH!" so I took that as a "Yes!"

So, we loaded up the Dodge Diesel and met my friends Lane and
Jackie out at Wanoga Snow Park >>>





On the bumpy trail from Wanoga to Elk Lake Resort >>> :eek:



Jackie's Polaris Trail 550 - very nice little sled >>>



Lane's Polaris RMK 800 is Crazy! >>>

My 700 is fast, but this sled is like a PISSED OFF HORNET!

It's got pipes and a race can so it flat out hauls butt.

Give it too much gas and it just takes off like a bat outta hell. BRAAAAAPPP! :shock:

Be careful or you'll get stung!

Next stop - Elk Lake Resort

The trail goes from Wanoga Snow Park to Dutchman Snow Park out by
Mt Bachelor and then past Sparks Lake, Devil's Lake and on to Elk Lake.

Eventually we met up with the Elk Lake snow cat. He groomed the trail
completely flat allowing us to crank the snowmobiles up to the 60-80 mph range!







Finally we arrive Elk Lake Resort which is covered with about 10 feet of snow >>>

After Beers, Burgers and Fries it was time to head back to Wanoga Snow Park by Mt Bachelor.

We finally dig it out with the help of an experienced rider who stops to help.

He knows how to "Boondock" on the Backcountry powder and effortlessly
rides it out of the hole (after a lot of digging)

Through the tunnel towards Wanoga >>>







Great ride! :D

THE END :cheeky4:

Right on.

Funny you mention Sunriver. :D

I bought my 2 sleds from some some guys who have a place out West of Sunriver off Stellar Road.

These guys have all the best sleds and a vacation home out there.

They have about 20 sleds in the garage and metal garage building! :eek:

Wouldnt it be nice to have that much money so that you could just ride all the time. Man I would love that. Seem as though I can hardly find time to ride right now let alone the cost of gas these days. Gotta be happy with what we got. :thumbsup: So have you been up to paulina yet??
