The oldest story I remember hearing is when my great- grandfather would rent a couple sleds from Colby Sales and Service in Windham so that the family could ride around the yard for the weekend. Back when my grandfather and grandmother were members of the Weston Ridge Runners they would help drag trails. This continued when they joined the Andover Mountaineer Snow Riders at least thirty-five years ago. The Griswold family has continued to help maintain the trails, cleaning them, putting up new maps and signs and fixing bridges. All family members understand the importance of this maintenance, because without it we couldn’t continue participating in the activity we have all come to love. Within the Andover club, Griswold members have assumed the roles of trailmaster, vice president and treasurer. While many of the Griswolds and other snowmobilers like to go fast and just play in the fields, the Griswold family also takes the time to enjoy a full-day ride. Sometimes the full-day rides consist of a cookout on the trail. On rides like this, my cousins and I would take turns riding in the caboose and on the back of our parent’s sleds, meanwhile watching each other and trying to copy the movements to pass the time. Until we were old enough to drive our own sleds and know the trails better, the snowmobile rides felt like they took forever, but no matter what age, we always found the scenery enjoyable. The Griswold family participates in the Chester Poker Run every year, with a group of at least 15 people, with the youngest ones on the lookout for the buckets.
