Re: To help or not to help
I witnessed a similar incident last winter, only the guy was riding a thundercat! Those have got to be the heaviest sled on the market! Anyway, it took six of us about 2 hours to get him back on the road. He was so grateful, he tried to pay us afterward. We just told him that if the situation were reversed, and one of us needed some help to get out, that someone would come along to offer a hand.
I guess the point is we all need to look out for each other when we snowmobile. There are just too many bad things that can and do happen (inexpierienced riders, bad weather, mechanically unsound machines, snow covered rocks!) and when something bad happens to you, and eventually it seems to catch most of us at some time or another, you will know who the real snowmobilers are, because they will be the ones down there with you, making sure you get home.
