Snow machines were not a part of my younger world because they didn‘t yet exist. But they‘re here now, with all the trails for them and the noise and the danger of your car hitting one when they cross the road to follow a trail... Yes, the trails run through the deep woods, but what are your chances of seeing a deer or hearing a chickadee? Snowshoes make no noise and you see and hear lots of wildlife.
I’m afraid I get a bit jaundiced when I go downtown and see all the snowmobiles lined up by the bars. Which accounts for why almost every serious snowmobile accident I hear about involves alcohol. Progress isn’t always great. So you can drink and drive a snowmobile without penalty--unless you consider death a penalty. Ah, but I don‘t mean to rant.
I‘m actually writing a winter-set story with snowmobiles used by the bad guys to threaten those in a snowbound house in the deep woods. The Viking is my snowmobile expert as he‘s used one everywhere from the Sierras to joyriding on the ice of the lower Michigan inland lakes.
I’ve not finished with that book yet, but I do have one coming out this month that has nothing to do with snow--Terror From Before, the third book in my DANGEROUS DARKNESS SERIES from Red Rose Publishing. Each book in this series stands on its own, though the four men in the series were a Special Op group who’ve returned to civilian like believing their leader was killed. Since he’s the hero of the fourth book, Stranger On The Shore, obviously he’s alive--but really strange.
