TGIF: The Dec. 27, 2013 Edition

TGIF: I love jumping Caddys with my snowmobile

I'm thankful 10,000 people paid to witness the absurdity of this situation and, more importantly, that I get a portion of the gate.

I'm thankful the outfit I'm wearing completely obscures my true identity.

I'm thankful I can risk my life for the inglorious distinction of jumping just one single Caddy with my snowmobile.

And I'm thankful it's Friday, Dec. 27, 2013.

TGIF: snowmobiling naked in Sweden

(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.

Judging from last weekend's Gerald Dyrdahl Memorial Pine Lake 200 by USXC, Team Arctic is blessed with another winning juggarnaut.

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.

Recently I enjoyed an afternoon in the Wanderscheid Race Shop, where World Champion P.J. Wanderscheid and his brothers Mark and Dave played host to World Champions Jim Dimmerman and Steve Thorsen.

It felt like World Champions' Day!

The conversation was about Champ 440, engine building and of course Eagle River.
