    I'm first? 17 year tradition. 12:01 here on the east coast. My new hobbies are shaving goods (shaving is fun with the right gear!) , got my vette back on the rd motobikes, archery, guns, bunch of other crap. Drove my newish f150 to my parents in gerry ny. I ditched Facebook in june this year but still have messenger. The last post in off topic is my post from last year? No wayyyyyy. I love and miss you all, would like to catch up. I have a feeling a few old guys will check in on this post as they know I do it. I am going to get the zrt running in the next few weeks. Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah!!! Almost 50 degrees here, unbelievable and sad. Where have our winters gone?

    Merry Christmas, Matt (and fellow Fanatics)! Love that you still drop in, even if it is annually. Not that there's much going on here anyway...

    I upgraded long tracks last year. Sold my '11 RMK Assault and picked up a '16 Pro RMK from a friend. At the end of the day, it's still a mountain sled that I basically ride one weekend a year...

    I gave up on the short tracks in 2013 when I sold my SnoPro. But...I still have my old ZR which I have good intentions of firing up this year. See if I can get the GF out on it. If that goes well we'll see what happens. We actually have rideable snow for the first time in a number of years. Groomer has even been out. Temps in the 20's currently.
    2016 Polaris Pro-RMK 800 163"
    1998 Arctic Cat ZR 600 EFI "Custom"
    1996 Ski-Doo Formula III 600

    A mountain lion roaming the prairie found a bull, killed it and ate the entire bull. With a heavy belly, unable to walk, the lion laid in the tall grass moaning and roaring. Soon a hunter, attracted by the roaring, shot and killed the lion.
    Moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut!

    Rideable snow and you're on here posting? Get out there and braaaap man!! haha. I miss it so much. I bet you miss that snowpro. I can't believe you still rock the ZR. I just put a couple miles in the field at my parents on the old 2 up panther I rebuilt for my dad years back. Had a big smile the whole time even though it was a few inches of snow haha. Those older cat twins are really fun sleds and super cheap.. I should pick one up and trailer 3 hrs north and ride a few times this winter. 50 and rain at the moment here by Watkins Glen. Really great to hear from you!

    Hey Bud good to see you! I can't believe looking at off topic that the last post in this group was from me last year! That is incredible!

    Hey P-Man! Great to see you're still kickin! You still riding? I can't believe the last post in off topic was my Christmas thread from last year. Do I have threads sorted wrong or something, I can't believe it! What is your status? Rich farmer, 3 new sleds every year, married with 2.5 kids and a white picket fence? I miss knowing what everyone is up to and doing in their lives. Happy New Year!!

    Really not much has changed, I'm still farming although we bought out dad and uncles back in 16 so I'm a long ways from rich but hope to get there one day. I actually started a side company with a buddy manufacturing some parts for John Deere planters, we own a couple of patents so that is some nice side income.

    Sleds, I have my 2015 Pro-S Rush that I bought as a carryover in 2016, I think it has around 500 miles on it over 4 seasons, I don't ride much anymore... Added to the fleet a couple of weeks ago though, bought a 1996 XCR 440... Got a bit nostalgic and it was only $1000.

    I have one kid, my fence is a haggard tree line and I've been meaning to landscape my yard for 5 years but for some reason haven't done it yet... House was new in 2013, 30 X 45 shop next to the house was built in 2017. Wife has a 2018 Flex Limited and I have a 2019 F250 Lariat diesel. Life is pretty darn good.
    Every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. That means every day you see me, that's the worst day of my life.

    1980 Yamaha Enticer 250 | 1990 Arctic Cat Jag AFS 440 | 1994 Polaris Indy 440 | 1996 Polaris XCR 440 SP | 1998 Polaris XCR 440 SP | 2003 Polaris Pro-X 600 | 2006 Polaris Fusion 600 HO | 2008 Polaris

    You will be proud of me for this Matt, a couple Cat triples joined my fleet in the last yr! 1998 and a 2001 with 620 miles on it.

    I have sort of started collecting 90s 800cc+ muscle sleds now
