Good stuff, thanks for sharing.
Of all the camping trips I have been on, some of the most fun/memorable have involved weather that one would not consider beneficial at the time of planning.
One trip to Stillwater in 2009 featured rain at least 60% of the time, probably more. Looking west from our campsite, we could see walls of rain coming at us, watching the rippled surface of the water as it was pelted with millions of droplets creeping our way. Still one of the most fun trips.
Stayed at the Glenmore for some Old Forge snowmobiling for a few days about a decade ago...while unpacking, I discovered I forgot my boots. I rode the entire trip in my Nike high tops! What seemed like a major problem turned out to be the root of half of the jokes and smart arse comments on the trip, leading to many giggles.
"I would help you get unstuck, but I can't get off my sled. Remember, I am wearing sneakers."
"This sled handles better without boots...must be from less weight!"
"I saw your sled pulled over, running. I thought your laces got pulled into the track and sucked you in. I was disappointed to see you were just in the woods taking a leak."
....and so on.
Despite what you read on this site, we are in the Golden Age of Snowmobiling.
Our trails are in good to excellent condition 90% + of the time.
Our clubs are, for the most part, well-run by dedicated volunteers and leadership.
Grooming is pretty consistent across the State.
Your sled is likely the most comfortable, reliable and fuel efficient snowmobile you've ever owned.
