I am looking for friends to get together with and go snowmobiling. Riding alone is no fun and is not safe. Over the years the people I rode with have moved, sold their sleds, or just prefer to put more miles on the couch. Perhaps you also find yourself searching for people to go snowmobiling with, or perhaps you already ride with others but are always looking for others to add to the pack.

I am looking for those who enjoy snowmobiling, they cannot wait to go, they are serious about meeting others to go snowmobiling with, are trustworthy, reliable, dependable. Not looking for time wasters who have snowmobiles but prefer to keep them parked and sit in the house all weekend looking out at the snow and seem to have forgotten they have a snowmobile they could be out riding.

I am a trail rider, not a hot shot, racer, get from point A to B as fast as I can trying to break the snowmobile speed record, reckless and endangering everyone elses life out there, just a nice cruising speed according to the trail and conditions. I am not looking to go 15 miles to get a burger and then back home, but also don’t have to go 200 miles either. Just a day, or half a day of snowmobiling then back home as we all have other things going on in our lives we have to do. But certainly one can make a bit of time to go snowmobiling and still get all those projects done.

Winter is not 12 months long, although some may feel like it is, and others wish it was. Winter will end and enough snow to ride is never a guarantee. The point is if you have a snowmobile and you enjoy snowmobiling, when we are blessed with snow, why not get out there and ride, because before long winter is over and you have not rode at all, we are never guaranteed enough snow to ride, or a long snowmobiling season anymore. Do you really want to put more miles on the couch than your snowmobile. Or sit there and procrastinate about going, and before long its sunday night.

If you are looking for others to go snowmobiling with, or add others to your snowmobile group respond to [email protected] (make sure to delete the REMOVE part before sending email).

The areas I mainly ride in are but NOT LIMITED TO, Hibbing, Kelly Lake, Keewatin, Nashwauk, Pengilly, Calumet, Marble, Taconite, Bovey, Coleraine, Cohasset, Grand Rapids, Goodland, Side Lake, Chisholm, Kinney, Buhl, Mountain Iron, Virginia, Eveleth, Gilbert, Meadowlands, Cotton, Canyon, Alborn, Independence, Twig, Four Corners, Hermantown, Duluth, Saginaw, Cloquet, Two Harbors, North Shore.

I have contacted the clubs in my area, 3 of them, as I thought that would be a great way to meet others to ride with. Was surprised to hear from them that its not the best way to meet others to ride with on a regular basis, they went on to say the lack of members, and the lack of active members leave only a few members to do work for the club, grooming, trail maintenance, etc and no time to ride. As much as they would like a new member of the club they were also honest with me about the unlikely hood of me meeting people to ride with because of so few members, and those who are active with no time to ride because they get stuck doing all the club work. They maybe plan one group ride a year, and not to many members attend. Some of you in minnesota live in areas where the clubs have lots and lots of members, up this way thats just not the case. Thanks for the suggestion, and so thats why I turned to trying to meet others via this method who are serious about getting together to go snowmobiling.
