Toys for the big Boys

There are a few big boys in my family who would love a shiny new snowmobile for Christmas.  And,  I know a few younger boys who would think it was pretty awesome if the big boys were to get a fancy snowmobile as well, as they may get a ride by default.

I  remember our old snowmobile which we used to drive around our yard when we were kids.  It was  great winter time fun, sometimes we would ride a lone, and other times we would ride in pairs.   We would just go around and around our property all afternoon long.

 My dad used to put that old snowmobile in the back of his pick up truck, just in case he would get stuck going back and forth from work.  If you could imagine, he would leave his ditched vehicle and get on his snowmobile.  There was even days when it was snowing so hard that he wouldn't even attempt to drive, but instead just drove his snowmobile to his job.   This was back in the days when we had real winters, when the snow would pile up as high as the roof on the house, and it would take days for the snow plows to get the roads cleared.  

Those old snow machines or yesteryear looked nothing like the beauties which are available today.   Though, seeing the sleek new snowmobiles at Suzuki Moto makes me long for those good old days, and the fun we used to have.  

However, the question remains - will there be snow for the enthusiasts this year?  After last years wash out of a winter, there are many people itching to get out on the trails.    It has yet to be seen here in Southern Ontario,  but hope springs eternal.

I can't even think if I've ever been on a snowmobile!

I grew up in Manitoba. So, its all anyone does. Except my family , we cross country ski and dodge the snowmobiles.
It is fun though!

I've never been on a snowmobile before! Looks like fun! I love the look of the one in your post! That will make some "big" boy very happy this holiday season!

My husband would love to buy a sled but with our Southern Ontario winters it hasn't been worth it the last few years.

As fun as snow is, I'm much more for this great weather we are having. I've never ridden a snowmobile, looks like crazy fun!!!

I've never snowmobiled before but I bet it's fun! I hope we get snow in Toronto. In Winnipeg, tobogganing was my thing. Love it!
