WOOg HOO

Erik Woog was born with an itchy thumb. An irksome condition for certain, but after years of study and experimentation he’s discovered that the best relief comes from a snowmobile throttle and the handfuls of energy it transfers through his thumb driver. The more power it generates the better he feels, and thus the endless […]

KLIMATE CHANGE

We made a specific point of tracking down “The Skipper” on our last snowmobile trip to Newfoundland. Not that he was hard to find – we’d received 2′ of fresh snow the night before and correctly determined that his shoveling prowess would place him somewhere near the back deck of the resort’s third chalet. Despite […]

SHINING STAR

The Caleb Kesterke riding video we shared on this morning’s Boondockers Facebook Page makes us appreciate the powerful marketing position Polaris Inc. has created in back country snowmobiling. In a world that bombards us with commercials, social media blasts, or worse, “silly survival streams” – Polaris continues to rely on the most important promotional tool; […]

DEAR DEBBIE

Boondockers often pay tribute to friends and family. We shout out to them on camera, and every set of film “credits” acknowledge their contribution and support. We often speak of them when we enjoy a home packed lunch on the trail, and the narrations in the latest Boondockers movie pay homage to “Relationship Capital” and […]

KOOL KLIM

Elizabeth shouted to her little brother when she caught him sitting in a wind row eating snow with his bare hands; “Put your gloves back on James. Poppy always says the best way to keep your hands warm is not letting them get cold!” God love her, for no truer words were ever spoken nor […]

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

Dan Gardiner once wrote an article suggesting that Newfoundland’s Boondockers had converted to a new snowmobiling faith in the State of Utah. There’s no denying our feelings about the northwestern United States for this has indeed become our favorite place to ride on the entire planet. The area boasts some of the most dramatic terrain […]

KYODY BEAUTIFUL

About 10 years ago, Craig Borden from Rugged Edge made a Facebook post with an unbelievable photograph of an Arctic Cat snowmobile launching a monstrous drop in Newfoundland’s Lewis Hills. This area is known for its blazing rocks – a “Red Sun Cone” that offers excellent terrain for brave and skilled riders. It was a […]

Numbers Game

Numbers Game I recently attended a party to celebrate a woman’s 79th and 83rd birthday. When asked about the apparent “double down” on her birth dates, she turned her head conspiratorially and explained; “Now you know what it was like in those days. Me sister had me, but my grandmother raised me – so they […]

Keep Kool

‘Keep Kool’ With nearly 2 decades of filming the Boondockers snowmobile series, we’ve logged a shocking pile of miles on our machines, met some pretty incredible characters and visited the most amazing riding environments on the planet. Witnessed many advancements in snowmobile technology, watched riders push the sport’s limits beyond our wildest imagination, and of […]
