Actually it has. I have three closings this month all over $2.8 mil each. Two in Manhattan and one in the Hamptons. I do not think the Champ is worth spending this kind of money on though when I have a set of skis hanging in the hanger along with the unused floats.

But the question is, how do these work when there is no snow? Does that solve the Taxi and Take-Off problem we were talking about?

They are nice, but not $4800 nice.

At least not for me.

I did. Assumed they would be OK. It looks like the kind of set up that I had asked about, so it looks like if you have no snow or heavily packed snow / ice they will ride fine on the ground / ice.

Wheel PENATRATION ski, the tire sticks down thru the ski far enough to taxi on a dry surface and has a little roller blade type wheel on the back so that the ski doesn't touch the ground. There is a little drag penalty from the tire sticking out the bottom when in the snow.

Thanks Glenn - I need to try it first and see if I like it and if so, I would put the Skis on that I have and see how it goes.

All the snowmobiles need are wings!

Winter bites again this year. I know that the rest of you are laughing but this is the best I can do so far this year. Hardly worth the effort but I had to have some ski fun. Please let it snow. We used to get 200" a year.

Looks like a fun time. I talked to Bill Pancake yesterday and he is sending me all the required dimensions in order to install the skis I have.

Tom,

I think we are finally getting some colder weather even down here. Was snowing a little in the Hampton's yesterday. Hoping to play with the skis are few times this season.

Hope to get to meet you on one of the get togethers.

We're getting the cold weather down here in Florida as well. There was even a frost this morning. Not enough for skis, though. But don't feel too sorry for me. It's going to be back up to 77 on Christmas day. :elephant:

Tim,

Glad you are going to have nice weather on Christmas. I actually am fine with the Winter and love to ski, so I make the best of it and it looks like we might have a White Christmas ......... That will be better than 77 for me with a fire in the fireplace and lots of beverages. Merry Christmas. Bob

I have to admit, there's nothing like a good old northeast Christmas. To me it's laughable to hear Christmas music when it's 75 degrees out. I used to love to ski as well, but with a bad back and knees those days are long gone. I also enjoyed snowmobiling, but those long weeks of constant grey skies gets so depressing. It's amazing how much more cheerful you feel with the sun shining nearly every day. :monkey:

I do miss being around my friends and toys, but so far manage to find enough to do down here to keep me happy. I'd much rather be home, but the nice weather is worth the sacrifice.

At 110, my knees and back are still OK Tim. :beer: Not much else works that great anymore though. :headbang:
