Hillbilly Sledding

I haven’t given you a peek into the non-crafty side of life lately, so I thought I’d take a minute to show you what we did on New Year’s Day – what we like to call Hillbilly sledding:

You know, where an ATV pulls some riders on a tube over some barely-snowcovered hard frozen ground.  And the guys occasionally run over the tow rope:

And the kids LOVE it!

We’ve done this in various ways in year’s past…
because it doesn’t get much classier than riding on an abandoned hood being pulled behind a 4 wheeler:

And when that got too cold and my dad took pity on the grandkids, he fashioned up a box for wind protection, complete with flame paint job – -

How about you?  Have you been “sledding” this year??

    We barely get snow here in NC and when we do it mostly melts the same day. But I was raised in snowy PA and remember grandfather pulling me around the yard on the vintage wooden toboggan (which in NC is a ski hat?!) with his tractor. Mom dad and I would pile ontop of each other on the sled and go down the hill. They were good times.
