We all (except Val, Ian, Ann and Helen) decided to go on a night snowmobile ride! It started at about 8.00pm and finished shortly after 11.pm
In Antony’s words, it was cool dude!
We went in pairs and took turns. I was with Chloe and thankfully I was good enough to not scare her to death! The machines felt very powerful and I probably only used a small fraction of the power available, but it felt pretty fast!
We had a couple of false starts. One of the snowmobiles broke down immediately. Then a moment later one of us got a bit stuck. But soon we were well on the way.
After we’d been on the go for a while, our guide stopped us and took us into a little area in the woods with a shelter and he built a fire. Not only did he make tea and coffee on the fire, he cooked us a sausage each too!
I’ll update this post with photographs soon. Right now it’s time to get some sleep!
