A twelve-year-old girl who lives near us asked me about taking her for a tubing ride. I told her she would have to wait for summer and then she asked what was wrong about a winter tubing ride using my snowmobile. What a novel idea. So I hitched a tow line to the back of my snowmobile and too her on a ride both at a nearby lake as well as on the shores of Lake Michigan just outside Ludington.
The latter was my idea as I wondered why a snowy beachfront wouldn’t work as well as being on a lake? Aside from some stinging sand being blown up a nasty wind that day everything was great. We used our scarfs as mufflers to shelter our face from that sand.
I might have to consider this again but with Darlene as my passenger. When I told her of the thought she encouraged it but with me as the passenger. All of a sudden it didn’t seem like all that great of an idea. I could also see all that snow kicking up in my face. That might be great for a kid but as for me? Well???
