What a Ride!

Happy New Year!

Cheers to a New Year and a new toy.
I am so excited...look what Santa brought me!!!
Remember in my last post when I said I wish I had Santa's sleigh?
Well whats the next best thing?
A new Yamaha Phazer GT snowmobile!

We just picked it up today and went on a long ride up and around Mullet Lake, across
valleys deep with snow, and into a forest of tall pines and sparkling streams.
I can't find the words to express the beauty we see on our rides, it is truly God's country.
I really need to find a way to share this with you guys.
Hmmm...maybe a helmet camera :)

My husband and I have been riding for years,
but it's going to be a whole new experience on this sled.
This machine is so responsive, snappy and bouncy it is like riding a jack rabbit.
There is a bit of a learning curve here for me, because this sled is so different from my last one.
The riding position on this machine is like that of a dirt bike or motorcycle.

But I plan on riding it a lot so I should get the hang of it soon:)

I bet you guys are kinda surprised I am such a tomboy, but it's true.
I love to ride!

Wishing all of you a fantastic ride this New Year!

May all your wishes come true!
