09 Mar 11 Paradise Found…
Last month I decided to stay at Northern Outdoors at The Forks in Maine to enjoy one of their mid winter snowmobiling packages.
The staff was great at helping me coordinate the last minute arrangements, set us up with nice snowmobiles, accessories and suggest some scenic routes then got my step son and I settled in one of their cozy cabins.
My 15 year old son had never been on a snowmobile but we watched their training video and he did great his first time out. We ended up logging 100 miles and enjoyed picture perfect conditions!
Beyond that everything we needed to have a vacation to remember was right there; clean beds, hot showers, great meals (my son says, "They have the best burgers!" and I agree…), tasty local brewed beer (I like their red beer), gas for the snowmobiles, direct access to the extensive trail system and roaring fires after dinner to meet new friends among the other guests while sharing photos and stories…
As I was checking out the chorus from David Lee Roth’s "Just Like Paradise" was repeating in my mind, especially the part where he says he didn’t want to go home!
Now my step son and I can’t wait to go back we are trying to figure out how to get his mom to come up for a few days with us before the season ends this spring. Wish us luck; perhaps we’ll see you there!
