Default Probably the Wrong Guy on the Wrong Site at the Wrong Time

What's a new guy supposed to say? I was born in a small town Ö

No wait Ö I went to college. Apparently, I was consuming a little too much alcohol. I ended up at a shrink for a few sessions, no big deal. He told me I have an "addictive" personality and that I could get addicted to the table in front of the two of us, if I had the opportunity. Anyways, I took two paths for further research: 1) the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and 2) rigorous searching on the internet.

As I searched the web for narcissistic, addictive, excessive compulsive among other personality disorders, I continually found the slednutz.com website showing at the top of my search returns.

Knowing nothing about snowmobiles, I noticed another common denominator on this site seems to be long waits for the summer to end, or, at least, looking for some type of adrenaline rush during the winters, and slightly bi-polarized individuals. Hardly ever seeing a snowmobile or knowing very few local people that have one and trying to deal with my issues, I crossed paths with an old buddy who was heading out west and told me I could tag along, probably just for the gas money

The manifestation didn't seem to be satisfied and the voices in my head wouldn't stop. Before the trip was over and the girlfriend 1000 miles away I began rationalizing a new hobby, like I need another one. Don't ask me how I got there. There's really no descent evidence to support the justification, since I canít even ride and my body size doesnít exactly conform to one of these things. Anyways, Iím searching for winter road trips Ö I mean a decent used snowmobile to tag along with my buddies. Driving for 14 hours in a pickup with three guys eating pork rinds is less expensive than the shrink or winter trips to South Beach. I hope at least the seats on these things are made out of silicone Iíll feel more at home.

If I end up seeing some of you guys while Iím wrapped around a tree or hanging from a telephone line, do me one favor and donít offer me a beer. Have one yourself and talk about the nut you saw with a well-embellished bar story. I feel sorry for the insurance company I end up going with.

One of my good friends is a big post guy here; so, I'll leave him nameless, unless he wants to identify himself, creating a miserable association (with me) and jeopardizing his relationship with some of you more normal guys. As a word of advice (and I'm terrible with advice), if was him, I'd change my phone number, address and not respond to this post.


Thanks for listening. This was extremely therapeutic,
Old Iron

BTW, being brand new and not knowing what Iím doing, I'll probably need to excessively beef-up the hamster wheel, whatever sled I end up purchasing.

One more thing ... I'm really not made of money. The little voices make me do lots of things I shouldn't The mortgage payment can wait a month.

I'm better on slow, stable machines. The steam engine in the avatar weights about 15 tons and you can walk as fast as it runs.

But the upside is they will pull about anything without barely breaking a sweet....

Sledding is for everyone. It is a great way to unwind and release all the cares of the world and just enjoy life and nature.

Welcome and enjoy....

I claim him, lol. His name is Dave but we call him Wok, short for Ewok. We are going to keep him out of the shrinks office and make him a regular this year. Just don't ask him to cross any creeks on the powerlines unless he has time to "mentally prepare." Dave is a stand up guy and will get along well with everyone on here. We need to find him a sled. Off trail sled that can me modified to fit his 6'7" stature. He is another Cat guy in the making but assume he would consider any brand for his first sled. Help a brother out!

Andy is too nice, "... stand up guy ..." after all those drunken nights that he had to peel me off the sticky, stale beer on the fraternity's basement floor while the sun was coming up or carry me home from an after hours party after lethal doses of Everclear or beer bongs of straight JD or drinking out of a garbage can. Needless to say, I'm happy he's willing to take me with him on a couple trips this year !!! ... even if he does make me sign a waiver voiding him of any responsibility.

I agree with cuzzinolaf, help a brother out Sell me the M7 and you can buy a nice M8 or M1000. He knows you too well

Greetings there OldIron

I'm an untrained, unprofessional, and unlicensed psychologist.

Having said that, I won't be analyzing you or offering any erm...therapeutic "services."

Steam Engines...You won't believe this, but I did grow up riding around in a steam car, and a steam engine. Only wish that I could've gotten more involved in them.

Enjoy this place! It's great! Just watch out for the fudgepackers!

My thought exactly...except this is your excuse to try the Poo.

Haven't ruled out a Poo in the future (Keep that between you and I and don't tell Keith). If I were to pull the trigger now it would be another M8 though. I have a perfectly fine sled now and have no reason to upgrade.

I would want to ride one before I ever really considered it. I do like the way they look but Cat has given me no reason to leave them. I don't want to start a debate here but I can't imagine a much better off trail sled than the M series. If Rubi brings his to the group ride maybe I'll get a chance to see what it is all about.
