I agree with you. I am a die hard snowmobiler and love to ride sled. For 9 months out of the year I look forward to getting on my sled and riding. Now that it is March though, all those things I have been putting off for the last 3 months are catching up with me.
I am a bit different then most woodworkers in that I do more woodworking in the Spring, Summer and Fall then I do in the winter. I just don't have time when the snow hits.
Snowmobiling is about all done. We just got 10 more inches today, but it just changed to all rain and it is going fast. Still I had a great season. In the past 9 weekends I have logged on 3,674 miles. That is like driving from Maine to California. Not bad on a sled. I have also introduced two new people to the sport and rode some trails I have never ridden before. Most of my trips were over 12 hours long and logged on an average of 220 miles a trip. As I said it was a great snowmobile season as short as it was, but now it is time to get back out in the shop and do something with wood.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
