    Introduce Yourself

    Welcome to SledSpace. Tell us a little about yourself. If you want, let us know if you have any areas of expertise that we can all draw off of.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    I'm Susie and I live in Hillsboro...until 29FEB. Then I'm in limbo until we buy a house in Creswell. My SO is Todd (aka Tedd). We are your SAWS reps here in Oregon.

    I've been riding every winter since 1996. My current sled is a 04 RMK 800 151. I plan to pipe it, but that probably won't happen until next year. Right now she just has bar risers, Fox shocks and a kick-a$$ Boss seat. I like to boondock and am beginning to like a hill climb every now and again. Trails are only for getting to the good stuff. If I could stay off groomed trails all day, I'd be a happy-camper!

    Most of all though...I just like to get out there and soak up some Oregon sunshine. Ya'all know how absent the sunshine is in the Willamette Valley in the winter! Sledding all winter helps keep me sane - and HAPPY!

      Introduce Yourself

      Hi, I live in Imbler, Southeast of Tollgate. I regularly ride Tollgate and Catherine Creek (Flagstaff), and occasionally Salt Creek (Joseph) and annually a week in Idaho near McCall (Patty Flats, Boulder Lake).

      I ride an 03 RMK 700. I am part of a snowmobiling family so I always have a group to ride with.

      My experience is almost 100% Polaris. Owned/worked on anything from 86 to now. Cant affored to let the dealer do a whole lot, do it all myself.

      I have for a season and a half now been playing with GPS and mapping some of my riding. If interested I would share some of my gpx files. Well, if I get around to organizing and cleaning them up anyway.

          Hi,

          Matt from Bend, Oregon here.

          I'm a Snowmobile NOOB and a motorcycle rider who's now
          officially HOOKED on sledding. :-)

          It's all my WIFE'S FAULT too. She hooked up with some
          friends who took us snowmobiling up at Paulina Lake in
          Central Oregon. Next thing you know, I'm buying 2
          new-to-me snowmobiles.

          A 1999 Polaris RMK 700
          And a 1996 Polaris Indy 500

          The RMK is mine and it's fun, but I'm finding myself
          riding the little Indy 500 a lot. I like it because it
          only has 1 inch lugs/paddles and I can flat-track the
          heck out of it and pass people on the insides of corners
          totally sideways. IT'S NUTS!

          Anyway.

          I just wanted to introduce myself. :-)
          Ride on,

            RE: Introduce Yourself

            hey guys, the name is Jared. I live in Keizer, and a member of the Mt. Jefferson club.

            this is my thirdish season riding. sledding is a family affair for me. My wife and in-laws got me into it and i am hooked. We ride mainly at Hoodoo, but try to get down to Diamond lake atleast once a year.

            I ride a 06 Polaris 600HO RMK 144 track. Haven't done much to it just a can and some apperance stuff, but I have plans for it. I must say I love my sled. I rode quads for years at the dunes, and I can honestly say I enjoy sledding so much more. The people are better, season is usually longer, and not to mention no sand in places I dont want it to be.

            glad to see a strictly Oregon site. Hope that it gets going and becomes very useful, and even find some new people to ride with.
            Take me to where the white stuff is!!!!

            YOU MUCH ALWAYS PUSH THE LIMITS, BECAUSE IF YOU NEVER FAIL YOU WILL NEVER SUCCEED

              Hi,

              This is a pretty great idea you have here. My name is Kim and I am the secretary of the Rogue Snowmobilers. I also try to keep our website new and exciting. We have a forum on our website but I find myself "talking to myself" quite often on it. We use it for information only. You can visit the website at www.roguesnowmobilers.com and check it out. I am going to let our club members know that this forum exists.

              If anyone is every down in our area, we try to keep an up to date grooming page so you know what to expect. If you need any advise about where to ride in our area, give any one of our board members a call and they can help you out. Their contact information is on the website.

              By the way....hats off to the Klamath club for hosting an excellent convention last week!!!
              When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.

              Kindness is like snow - it beautifies everything it covers.

                  Welcome all!

                  Look around the site, post often, share with friends. Be sure to check out the calendar, top right of the site, and add any events you know of that aren't already on there.

                  Let's see some photos once people can get out.

                  Look forward to chatting with you!

                      Right on.

                      By the way... I don't pass just anyone like that.

                      Just my brother, friends, WIFE, etc. ;-)

                      I look forward to riding this weekend.
                      I'd like to go over the top of Kwohl Butte/Sheridan Mtn
                      and then down to Elk Lake for a burger and beer.

                      Ride on,

                        RE: Introduce Yourself

                        Matt - good luck getting there this weekend! We tried to reach Kwoll on 12/31 and the snow was too deep then...and the trails were ungroomed as well. With the snow we have now, it'll be even more of challenge to get anywhere near either shelter!! Take pics!!

                        Also near Sheridan, there are large geothermal holes all over the place. Don't fall into one....there is no snow at the bottom of them and they can come up on you unexpectedly. I can't remember what the proper name is for it, but the earth generates heat in spots and snow does not cover it. So, the warmth just creates this big hole in the snow pack. SCARY!!

                          Hi OregonGirl,

                          Thanks for the info on Kwohl Butte being full of snow.

                          Maybe I'll skip that and do some trails over to Elk Lake.

                          I hear ya about the Geothermal holes on Sheridan.
                          I've seen 'em and they're SCARY! You don't want to
                          fall into one... it's heat from HOT MAGMA!!!



                          Ride on,
