Snowmobiles. (John)

Today we got our snowmobile licences, following instruction from one of the Station facilities managers. We have the choice of two.

This is the shiny new one.

And this is the old one.

Both skidoos are capable of 100 mph. The shiny new one has a speedometer and an offical-looking sign that says: "Maximum speed 10 mph." The old skidoo has neither. I wonder which one we'll choose...

Like a scene from Easy Rider, Abe and Nic.
