Default Artic Man weekend

This is Arctic Man week in eastern Alaska. Those of you in Wisconsin and Minnesota can picture this: a bunch of drunk (or high) rednecks (or jack pine savages) getting together in the middle of nowhere with snowmobiles (snowmachines here) and raising heck. The featured event is a skier tied onto the back of a machine going 80+ mph across the tundra, racing for the best elapsed time over a marked course. They also have acrobatic events and other crazy stuff.

30 yrs. ago, I'd be on the skis. Today I'd be on the sidelines drinkin' beer near the burn barrel..
