During the winter the best way to explore the woods is by snowmobile. His dad owns two of them and after working many hours to repair them we could take them for a ride. In the States they make special trails to go snowmobiling on, quite amazing huh?
After going with just the two of us, we also took a ride with my boyfriends parents. The second time around we saw so much wildlife: deer, geese and wild turkey! Unfortunately every time I tried to approach them (der) they ran away. I did manage to get one wild turkey picture though.
We stopped at a little bar to get some food. After eating a big burger with fries we discovered the trails were closed due to lack of snowfall. This means we were actually engaging in an illegal act driving over there. At that point we still had a two hour drive back home, I was pretty scared a police officer would pull us over, some trails go along side the normal road. Luckily we weren't pulled over.
Did you know that people don't eat mayonnaise with their fries in the States? In The Netherlands mayonnaise is the main sauce to eat with fries. In America they all eat ketchup, something we Dutch would consider a bit unusual. I was happy that they do have mayonnaise in the States most of the time, so I just requested it every time I ate fries. They just gave me a funny look every time I did haha.
For the ones of you that aren't so lucky to have a boyfriend who's dad owns a pair of snowmobiles: you can rent them. I'm not to sure where but Chris told me it's possible. You don't need a license to drive but I believe that wearing a helmet is mandatory. Funny because it's allowed to drive a motorcycle without one!
