    Looking for a sled that would hold a 6", 6'1 185 pd. person comfortably. Would get a snowmobile but the snow sticks around here maybe 2-3 weeks. Tried going down some hills with a little kids sled and almost killed myself a few times. Been looking around and can't decide on an old fashioned wooden one or one of the newer plastic ones. Just something that will hold me and is durable. Thanks

    Plastic ones do fine, the old fashioned ones require good packed snow and you will not go very fast. I have a cheap plastic one that my sone and I ride on and have yet to fall put of.

    1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle car hood and lots of Turtle Wax. It's a pain to drag up the hill but will hold several people and really fly

    We actually did that to one year. It was a blast.

    Trust,

    You make me thing of being a kid! I used to love sledding. I'm going home for Christmas to Wisconsin. I can't WAIT to go ice fishing!!! My whole family has snowmobiles so I'm sure we'll do that.

    But maybe I'll see if they can take me sledding. If I don't come back, you'll know
    I hit a big tree or a brick wall!

    Maybe i should check out toboggans I need to find a big hill too. Used to sled here when my dad was stationed in Germany. They had a trail that would last about 30 minutes from the top of the mountain to the bottom.

    Can't beat an onld fashioned inner tube. Check out tire stores/gas stations, usually about 5 bucks a pop. Build a little jump for fun, you'll have fun, promise

    I have a sled like the one at the site you mentioned, Winter Lightning 3 Pack, might want to wear a butt pad though

    I'll say it again, you Americans are soft , what do you need a sled for when you have a lovely curved bum? All you need is an old pair of pants, try it it is great fun.

    I got my parasiteware t-shirt

    My bum has very little padding and after a hill gets all packed in, it's such a pain in the a$$!
