Feel Like a Number?

In every life a little rain must fall and in every columnist’s life a few great story ideas have to bite the dust. This is an idea that hit the skids in a big way, pretty much right away, but I decided to write about it anyways. So, there!

My first shot at racing snowmobiles was the equivalent of some of the early, grainy black and white footage of people trying to make airplanes fly. Rather comedic or some would say futile. I was lured in by the illusion that if I could bang down a ditch at 65+ mph, I could coast around a snocross track no problem.
