Dan Watson Builds a Hus-ski Dan Watson Builds a Hus-ski
Local crafter from Curtis, MI, Dan Watson was in the logging business his whole life. He now spends most of his time building wood-crafted toys for his grandchildren and local children. The best part about this story is that this 80 year old man gives away most of his creations.

The week before our Show this past February, 2010, Daniel called the Museum to ask if he could come and do some videotaping of our Ride. Of course, the collectors who always come to Naubinway the whole week before the event, are always willing to talk about their snowmobiles, especially to a newcomer to our event! No one is camera shy, and they are so enjoyable and interesting to listen to. Daniel learned about our Museum and Show, and we found him to be enjoyable and interesting, too.

Dry Riders Motorcycle Club Dry Riders Motorcycle Club
The Dry Riders Motorcycle Club On July 27, 2011 we met the Dry Riders Club. They are an organization of men and women who are family oriented and have formed a club to promote the benefits of motorcycling with out the use of alcohol or drugs while riding. We were so impressed with this group that we would like to recognize and promote them to all of you. They spent some time in the museum and had many snowmobiling tales to share with us. One of their members, Tim Miller was involved in racing and his son is now, even wearing his old factory Ski Doo racing suit. We look forward to hearing from them again soon.

Evinrude Skeeter Riders Evinrude Skeeter Riders
John Fromm and Ron Wenta decided to make a March trip through part the Upper Peninsula on their trusty Evinrude Skeeters. They are from Wisconsin. This is their story in their own words: Me and my friend Big John "Thumb" were at it again. Last year we did three trips (two leave home and return the same day) and one overnighter in the UP. Mileages were 60, 120 and 160. Well we decided it was time to go again. With a snow report of two feet on the ground in Rapid River, MI plans started forming Monday March the 11th. By Wednesday we both had off work for Friday the 15th and Monday the 18th. We headed up to the cabin on Friday and unloaded, fueled them up and fresh set of plugs. We went to bed at 8:00 to prepare. We were up at 3:30 am, ate breakfast, loaded the sleigh and pulled the starter rope at 6:00am. We rode with headlights nearly two hours that morning. We headed east with a first day goal of Newberry MI. By 4:00pm we had arrived at the Naubinway sled museum. We were greeted by Marilyn and had an outstanding time. She was so nice and informative on the displays. We had an awesome time, THANK YOU Marilyn! We then ripped the ropes and headed for Newberry. We luckily got one of the last two rooms at the Comfort suites as the first place we stopped was sold out.
