Just wanted to send a note to Buzzy Eastman. I came up to Exit 17 with friends yesterday
and we rode 6 sleds out of the truck stop at 9:30 am. The trails were absolutely perfect. Hats off to your club and the trail
system. We rode to Cabot and had lunch and then came back thru 302 and the scenic overview loop.
We rode by Stormy and
the kids loved him. We will definitely be back to ride your fabulous trails.

the MLK weekend - FANTASTIC GROOMING, great job with signing also. I am a member of the club and would very much like to help
out next fall with the trail work getting things ready for winter.
The Good Snowmobilers
and I live where there is a snowmobile trail on all four sides of our house. We feel compelled to defend the Snowmobiler.
We have a horse named "Stormy" and a German Shepherd dog named "Buster". There are a couple of buildings
outback next to the snowmobile trail.
You might wonder why we are writing this letter. It is because we want you to
hear about the "Good Snowmobilers".
We have a sign on the trail "Slow watch for Stormy and the gate".
Never once has a Snowmobiler rode in a reckless manner by Stormy. They always ride single file and slow. Many Snowmobilers
are fans of Stormy. They sometimes stop to visit or just wave to him as they go by. Many families enjoy bringing a carrot
Buster goes to the barn with us and sometimes he gets in the way. Every Snowmobiler slows down to make
sure Buster does not dance in front of their sled.
The sheds outback are for our personal junk. Not one Snowmobiler
has ever tried to walk inside a shed.
Often we are outside when riders go by. They always raise a hand in a "thumbs
up" signal as if to say "Thanks for the trail."
The early part of the season, we had deep snow outside
the trails. I got on my sled to ride to check on Buzzy grooming in the Sur Trac. I was riding on a trail that was just one
track wide. The groomer had not been there yet. I was meeting sleds so I pulled out into the deep snow. You know what happen.
When I tried to pull back into the trail I was stuck. The first sleds by were two nice gentlemen that saw my problem and stopped
to pull me out. I sure did appreciate that kindness. They took the time to stop, smile and help. These are the Snowmobilers
that Buzzy and I know. They are the reason we enjoy the trails on our land and enjoy grooming trails.
are families having fun together. We have thought about writing this letter for a long time and decided that it was time.
Snowmobilers are the people you meet while shopping, going to ball games, going to Town functions. They are respectful, law
abiding people. The person you see on a snowmobile committing disrespectful acts is not a Snowmobiler they are Outlaws. Americans
have always had to put up with Outlaws in our free society.

Saturday was such a picture perfect day.
With our eldest son,
Hamdi (21), and our youngest daughter, Zeynep (8), Huseyin and I managed to work through the drama of getting machines running,
registered(to our NH permanent address) and TMA'd (as non-resident landowners), dressed and prepared for a day on the
For the first time we headed out on 302W-why we never went this way before is a mystery to us. The views are
We want to thank every volunteer for their hard work on trail upkeep-and the landowners beyond the State of
Vermont for allowing us on their land. Days like Saturday make all the expense and family drama of this sport worthwhile.
only question is why is it always the MOM who has to be prepared with the extra hand and boot warmers, water, candies and
snacks, first aid kit, extra mittens/hats, and the MAP?? and I always get the complaints because I ride the 2 up which is
more difficult to manuver.
Come on guys...the boots on your feet, the clothes on your back, extra oil and cash and
your off...... If only life were so easy. Next time we head west on 302...must remember to add carrots for the horse to my

Afternoon, I would just like to take a moment to thank you. Thank you for having AMAZING trails ALL THE TIME. This year I
joined the club in barre because it is my "local" club. But next year I will be joining the buckaroos. I have never
been so amazed with trail conditions. If you ever need any volunteers to help out with anything let me know. Once again
THANK YOU!! think white-stay right

Thank you again."
