I will never forget my first ride. Like most of us, it had a lasting impression that still brings a smile to my face decades later. For many of us, that person that showed us the ropes is still a riding partner many years later. The memories that are shared can never be replaced and the sights and adventures along the way will forever be etched into our memories. The fun of planning a road trip with your riding partner is always full of excitement and anticipation of the journey you are about to embark on. For many that have to travel to ride, the absence between trips can feel like an eternity. Once you are on the trails, all seems to be in balance and life as we know it becomes somewhat surreal. Regardless if you and your riding partner have been riding together for years or have just started clocking miles of smiles, the feeling remains the same. As this article is being written, many of us have not been riding for a few weeks due to lack of snow. With a major March Nor’easter looming, we are all excited to contact those we enjoy riding with and start planning that next journey. Our two riders being highlighted in this issue have shared many miles together over the years. They just completed a memorable trip to the Northeast Kingdom and the pictures and stories they shared will last a lifetime. We would like to thank Joe and John for their stories of “Why I Snowmobile” and the images from their latest trip. How far we travel in life matters far less than those we meet along the way. - Mark Twain
