Marathon Dan

Throughout the years in which we’ve been filming the Boondockers series of backcountry snowmobile videos I’ve come to witness many spectacular events, stunts and activities. We were there to experience the original Boondocker, Brian Seaward’s riding clinic when he side-hilled his way up the pole line above Grand Lake back in 1996. We sat jaw […]

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 […]

We finally made it out for the first ride of the season. We still need a little more base, but conditions are improving quickly and more storms are in the forecast. Rick Barker and Phatty made quick work of the untouched powder. Phatty is on a new 2010 Arctic Cat M8 HCR. Rick is still […]

April Fools

The only fools around here yesterday were the ones that didn’t go riding. We found 2-3ft. of new snow at the upper elevations in Utah. You know its a good day when you don’t leave until 3pm and still come back to the truck with an empty tank! Unfortunately I will be sitting out the […]

Stitch and Bitch

With all the technological advancements we enjoy in this day and age you’d think people would have a lot less to complain about. Somehow this is not the case and no matter what the situation it seems that folks tend to look for the very worst – often forgetting how amazing the experience itself might […]
