Belted

A friend of mine recently called to ask why his brand-new snowmobile is burning up belts so quickly. Now I’m used to having this conversation with owners of certain brands but this guy is driving a ‘Ski-doo Renegade Back Country X’ model which isn’t known for drive problems. The standard answer for some owners is […]

Wrecked It

We had a great snowmobile ride on Newfoundland’s West Coast last weekend – but it didn’t start out that way. We stayed at Strawberry Hill Resort where the beds were more than comfortable, the grub was plentiful and satisfying, the company superb and the snow conditions were decent. We rode right from the camp door […]

Giddy just doesn’t describe it!

I heard a rumor that the Boondockers 9 Teaser is almsot ready for our viewing pleasure!A big thanks to Dan Gardiner, Andrew McCarthy, Geoff “Phatty” Dyer and any others for so much TLC and time spent creating something that gets our adrenaline jacked thru the roof.

Scratch and Dent

We recently engaged a computer / dissemination expert who suggested that we switch our weekly updates on the www.strawberryhill.net site from written stories to a video format. In order to fulfill this mandate we opened a ‘Youtube’ and a ‘Twitter’ account using the alias’ ‘Ericbowater’ and ‘Urbanbayman’. Thus far we have submitted fairly low key […]

Island Park a couple of weeks ago

The day after the road trip to Preston in Idaho, Searle and I decided to make a small road trip up to Island Park, Idaho to do a little exploring…the never ending search for snow. Considering it was late January, one might think we were disappointed in the amount of snow we found. Unfortunately, a […]

Road trip to Preston, Idaho

Two weeks ago, myself and a couple others decided to mob down to Preston to see what kind of terrain is there and what the snow conditions were like. Two weeks ago was just before the big dump of powder that Dan was talking about in his “Epic” post. Preston didn’t disappoint, we didn’t find […]

California Gold Rush, Part 2

Day 3: If it could go wrong it did. With no snow at the trailhead we started cruising up the old dirt road, which was dusty at first. After the first corner we found the road was also a creek bed. So now it was a muddy boulder field with melt water rushing down. That […]

A River Runs Through It

Each year we start our riding season with great expectations of deep powder, huge air, and unexplored terrain. As spring approaches, however, we always seem to find ourselves scrambling for the last face shots before spring replaces winter’s chill breath with the warmth only an extended day permits. For those hungry enough, you can still […]

White Dreams

Today was one of those days that you dream of all summer. All of the perfect ingredients were there–new snow, sunshine, good friends, and ripping sleds. What started out as a rain storm over the weekend ended up laying down 3-4ft. of powder in the mountains over the last three days and this morning the […]
