Ski-Doo: Otis, 1975

otis massachusetts vintage ski doo snowmobile lake

Today is my birthday, forty-two!  This photo was taken in the winter of 1975 and is one of my all-time favorites:  Mom and Dad taking me out on our Ski-Doo sleds by our camp on Benton Pond in Otis, Massachusetts.

At three years old, I was pretty into zooming around out in the snow.  And I remember really liking my snowmobile gear – the fun and excitement that this specific uniform enabled, picking out cool patches for my mother to stitch on the cozy one-piece suit, the movement of the fur around the snorkel hood and thanks to a friend of the family – a custom Tweety Bird paint job on my helmet!

Snowmobiling has always been a family activity for us and the first thing that taught my brother and me that wintertime is playtime.  Thanks, Mom and Dad!
