A Weekend in April

I noticed a couple days ago that my last post on here was almost a year ago. It's crazy how you forget about things that were once so important to you. So for the individuals who still stop by here every now and again, here is a post on my weekend excitement. 

Typical Saturday pose.
Always willing to try a new boot. 
Trespassing at Port Arthur Lumber and Planing Mill to get a quick shot.
Sorry for trespassing but I couldn't resist. 
Oh thats where the Mercury dealer went.
Good looking GM, last plated in 58.
Some cow catcher on this cabover Freightliner! Cow moose that is...
One of the many Great West Timber skeletons.

Ice Racing in Thunder Bay

A tradition that started back in 1959, ice racing in Thunder Bay has gone on longer than anywhere in Canada. 
An easy way into the world of motorsports, the Thunder Bay Auto Sports Club runs races on weekends through the winter. 
Racing starts at 12 pm out at Mission Bay with a studded and non studded series.
With the biggest snowfall of the year looming, I figured it would be a great day to check it out. 
Green flag drops for the first run of the studded series. 
Best to get out front, because the snow was flying and the visibility was low. 
These cars get going pretty good. The studded cars hit up to around 100mph. 
Cautions out.
Quick tow to the pits.
It wasn't the coldest day, but at -25 with the windchill, 
I could imagine working on your car on the shore of Lake Superior could be interesting. 
On deck.
If you're ever in the area, you have to check this out. 
Good free weekend fun, plus you can sit in your truck and watch if its too gnarly out.
