Cool Greetings from Northern Maine

Hey gang...

Finally got a sled after a good 25 years of not having one.. grew up with a couple Sno-Jets in our woodshed, and have really missed sledding since my dad decided to get rid of them (the idiot).

Not 3 days ago, I had the opportunity to get a new-to-me sled... a 1989 Polaris Indy Classic 500. Considering the pittance I paid for it, I'm okay with the fact that she runs a little rough (and looks a little rough), so I've been rolling up my sleeves and digging in to get her tweaked and tuned and ready to hit the trails next week.

Needless to say, I've been scouring the innerwebs (heh) for a good place to hang out with other sledders. I like the ship that IBS runs here, so I thought I'd jump on board.

So if you need me.. I'll be hanging out in the Polaris forums.

Cheers!

Thanks! And we do have some snow at the moment.. Tomorrow is supposed to heat up to 47 and rain.. but I've made a big hole in the trash pile we call a garage and got my sled in there.. just pulled the carbs.. gonna clean those up and get them back on today (the power of positive thinking!) and dump the old gas from the tank.. all before my g/f gets home in an hour.. shhh.. lol

Welcome to the asylum. My wife and I were in Maine a couple of years ago. Beautiful state for sure.

We drink primarily Smithwick's (which we buy by the keg) and/or Gritty McDuff's "Pub Style"... when we run into financial hardships (like making an unexpected sled purchase.. lol), it's Silver Bullet.. ;-)

Attached photo is the Pub, all decorated for our annual Halloween Party.. ;-)

Do they still make the premixed "black and tan"? That was pretty good.

The 292? That was a great little sled...

In a couple of weeks there's going to be a 75 SST 440 F/A sitting in my garage.. really stoked about that. :-D
