Back to its natural habitat

As most of you know, my grandpa let me bring up a snowmobile that has been up in Big Bear for the last 20 years and lately that has been my project...fixing it up! After taking it apart quite a bit, tuning it up, it is running like a champ and I have been having a blast the last couple of days on that snow machine!! I have taken it the last two days to the same place that I go quadding in the summer. Its inaugural ride was Friday the 30th and today was its second ride. On Friday I learned a little lesson and that was to fill up the gas tank before I go. I only had about a 1/2 gallon of gas in there and didn't think to check it before I left and yup....I ran out of gas!! Luckily some guy was nice enough to give us a rope to tow mine back with! And thank goodness my manager came too, otherwise I would have had no way back! Today I went with one of my FHE sisters and we had an absolute blast! We rode close to 40 miles, blew through some big powder fields, and hit a lot of awesome trails. Anyway, enough words. Here are the pictures:

Ok so I am so super jealous because I have NEVER been on one of those before and it looks like so much fun, well besides the whole running out of gas thing. I would pass on that part. But super cool, way to get it running and having a great time. My little Bro just found out today that he has been accepted to BYU Idaho he is so excited!!!
