I have often wondered what the experience pool average was here on Snowest? I personally think the results of this poll will prove the majority of us here are veteran sledders...I may be wrong but please cast a vote and lets just see:noidea:

This is my 36th straight season.
Haven't missed ONE.


I started in 1976 on a 1972 Cheetah 340.

I remember riding in front and holding onto that damn steel (or alum or whatever it was) gas tank and couldn't see over the dash...and holding on for dear life. LOL

I remember being a kid in Iowa and my dad going out on patrol in the 70's..got me hooked after that. I am sure patrol pertained to beer drinking down at neighbor bobs house till a call came in but hey...they were still out hitting it.

My first sled was a hammedown "Rupp"
Did your father work for DNR or Sheriff's Dept? What did he ride for a sled.
