It may be a full moon but it ain't that far-fetched, I've done it!
When I lived in the Twin Lakes area of southern Wisconsin (as an aside it is the same little town where Erick Ruck, Danny "Danno" Amir, and Anthony Monaco, all come from) we took our snowmobile out of the boathouse and had to pull all the water toys out of the way. We started by towing each other on snow skis over our kicker that got frozen into the lake (it was there we had to do it, right?). Then we progressed to a kneeboard (no steering whatsoever on snow) then to an old pair of trick skis, more fun, but no directional ability either, then to a wakeboard
( marginal steering without our feet attached properly- no bindings- similar to wakeskating) It was mostly funny for the stupidity of it all, but as our speed progressed (it always does right?) up to around 30MPH suddenly on a wide cutout to the side the horizontal pull of the rope on the sled (AKA snowmobile) caused the snowmobile, driver, and passenger all to flip very suddenly and smash the windshield (oops, it was a borrowed snowmobile) and the rider went careening off the frozen lake into some branches and bushes on the shore (one good move amidst the stupidity,we all had a helmets on, no injuries)
we were laughing 'til our sides hurt, right up until we found out the total damage to the borrowed snowmobile, $360.00. Great story but a little pricey at the time.
Like most stupid stunts, Sooner or later it had to be done!
