well right now in washington ist pouring down rain where my dad and i go snowmobiling, at the pass its 40 some degrees and last night they lost 6 inches of snow ( but before a few days ago just got like 3 feet)
my dad doesnt wanna go because he doesnt wanna get down-poured
My question to you is, would you go? is it worth it, i wanna ride but i dont wanna get drenched and its suppose to hit a high of 50 tomorrow possibly

I did it once, last ride of the season two years ago and it started to rain when we were about an hour from camp. I would never do it again and only rode that day to get back! You can't see, you get soaked, colder in the rain at 45 degrees than at 5 degrees.

It was 48 here today. We had to cancel the play day this weekend because of the rain. I'm trying to figure out a way to mount my outboard on the back of the 700... where there's a will, there's a way

Not being able to see sucks. I have done it, but I'm finally realizing that there will be better days to burn the fossil fuels. Took me long enough ;)

all rain does is cause your sled problems. last year i went and my foam on the side of my 340 came off and melted on the exhaust pipe. im still scraping it off.

for those non-pacific northwest sledders, for us in WA rain is a part of sledding. with the warm currents and air comming from hawaii, if we dont have a stronger cold front comming from the north (canada), then we'll get rain.

most people make the decision to just stay at home, but ill climb higher :laugh:

but, keep in mind, its a constant drizzle, not the midwest downpour most all of you are use to when you hear "rain".
