(NOTE: You need to READ THIS for today's TGIF to make sense)

I'm thankful for the great experiences during my recent trip to Sweden.

I'm thankful the hotel in Farsnas didn't charge me extra for the bed sheet that got tangled in the track.

I'm thankful the guy was fumbling with his camera phone on my approach.

And I'm thankful it's Friday, Dec. 20, 2013.

For decades, cross-country racers have gathered on Pine Lake near Clearbrook, Minn., for the first race season. It's where we learn which brands have done their homework in the off-season, and which drivers will emerge as the season's stars.

TGIF: The Dec. 13, 2013 Edition

(12/13/2013)

TGIF: snowmobile protection from... everything

I'm thankful the bitter cold that's enveloped the northland won't penetrate the comfort of my snowmobile cab.

I'm thankful that I can launch off this cornice in full confidence (and if an avalanche does occur, I'm safe inside my own snowmobile's biosphere).

I'm thankful that I can wear my wool suit and cap during this week's poker run.

And I'm thankful it's Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.

TGIF: snowmobile barbed-wire beater

I'm thankful that aftermarket companies are finally addressing the needs of snowmobilers who are constantly confronting barbed-wire fences while out chasing fox, coyotes and other critters.

I'm thankful I could easily mount this wire-cutter on the hood of my sled, with only a couple lag bolts.

I'm thankful I haven't come to a sudden stop and flopped onto the hood.

I'm no dummy... I'm thankful it's Friday, Dec. 6, 1971 2013.
