cabin fever

It’s been a few month since I last expressed my wintery thoughts on a sheet of white, but if you know anything about the snowmobiling season in Maine, you know that February, March and part of April (if it’s a good snow season) is as good as it gets and an avid snow lover is […]

It’s all in my head

Helmets…that is! Helmets are such a huge part of our lives, but we really never notice how many we actually own or see on a daily basis; yet helmets play a big role in protecting us from what could potentially bring harm. They are life saving accessories that we think nothing more of after purchase, like the rest of […]


The INTERNATIONAL SNOWMOBILE FESTIVAL 2017… It’ll be a weekend to ride, meet new snowmobiling enthusiasts and experience new and exciting trails and adventures throughout a region known as the Acadia of the Lands and Forest. A legacy that was established to recognized a people without borders started in 2014 with the World Acadian Congress which is […]

My Church

Politics and Religion. When you hear those two words a few thoughts come to mind, and then most of us cringe. I love SNOW…in case you already haven’t figured that out, and it is my Religion. Set aside all of your convictions, judgments and critical thinking, and just enjoy the story and my journey. I’m […]

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

It was written by Les Emmerson and popularized the relatively unknown […]

I often wonder if Vern Labbe of Frenchville, a northern Maine tree farmer hums this traditional holiday tune all year long when he’s working around his trees? One just can’t help themselves to […]

A date to remember…

December 7th is a date that seems to live in infamy. The word is etched on the minds of generations because of men like FDR and the struggles of their generations, as well as visions of Pearl Harbor bombings, world wars, heroes and souls lost. A date to remember indeed. But what does that have […]

Back Breakin’ Braaap

Well good Lord woman, when are you going to blog about the fun stuff? LOL…I’m already hearing it now, and trust me, those days are forthcoming, sooner than expected. In order to have those golden ITS trails and pristine side trails that lead to our exotic snow covered destinations, local club volunteers are doing some pretty heavy lifting […]

Yes! Yes it is.

Yes! Yes it is! What a glorious view to wake up to and as my Facebook feed floods with reports of dedicated, hardcore snowmobiling friends who are heading for higher elevations in neighboring areas to experience there first thrill, their first smells of the sport and hopefully find a cure for that throttle twitch, I […]
