Snow Mobile Noob (360 Video)

Keri, Rob, and I headed out snowmobiling today and it was my first time.  Yep,  a noob.  I managed to stay on the thing 98% of the time, but you can bet I did fall off.  Twice.  The first time, pictured left, was out of self-preservation (I  thought).  I was climbing a cliff and I thought the thing was going to fall back on top of me so I let go and rolled off to the right - with the grace of a moose doing ballet.  I was surprised at how fast these things go. I got mine (actually Amanda's; she let me borrow it without knowing in advance) up to about 65 mph, while Keri and Rob went at least 90.  Every time I started flooring the throttle, I'd hit a bump and spend the next quarter of a mile trying to get my balance back and back on course.  What a blast I had.  Can't wait for the next opportunity.  I've already told Beth that we're getting one, a two-seater.  She's nervous.

Enjoy the vid!  It's a 360 degree video, so you should be able to rotate the screen around for 360 views.  Give it a try!
