Actually... I do know what snow shoes are but cross country skiis are so much more popular.

Rachel has a pair of snowshoes hanging on the wall in her family room.

Tracy said...

LOL! Very funny, girl.

Shelly said...

Never tried 'em myself but my Father in Law has a pair. Hubby says they are kinda hard to use.

Martha said...

Today we need ice shoes, the kind with spikes on the bottoms (kinda like cleats) so we don't land on our behinders.

Priscilla said...

We were planning on going cross country skiing sometime...but with the warm spell, we opted for skating.
I think Gudrun has a pair of snowshoes.

'sposed to get cold again!

Gudl said...

Yes, I have snow shoes, I got them for Christmas. I used them last weekend, but honestly, it was a pain! I really don't know whether they make it easier to walk in the deep snow? I don't think so...
Maybe I did something wrong.

froam what I hear it takes alittle getting used to.
I have yet to try it.

Gina said...

Had to clean off 6" off of my car this morning...tell you the truth though, I really don't mind. It just comes with the territory of where I live.

Martha said...

I think the purpose of snowshoes is that you can walk ON TOP of very deep snow, like they had in Oswego. It isn't necessarily meant to be fun, just to keep you from burying yourself.

Rachel said...

Martha- I also have the old, wooden cross country skis on my wall.

Bethany said...

Hmmm, Can I borrow those?

Tracy said...

As you know, D and I went snowshoeing on our vacation. It's fun if you go in the backwoods. It's not easy, per se. It's more just the romance of being on top of deep snow. It's a bit of a workout. More like hiking than walking.

Gudl said...

Unfortunately I did not stay ON TOP of the snow. I sank in. :-(

I guess I have to try again.

I don't mean to be a party pooper, but I've never tried it and hope I never have to. (Can't believe I just typed "party pooper".)

Martha said...

We drove in a blizzard to get home from church tonight. We could hardly see the road!

Martha said...

I could really use a pair of cross country skiis more than a gym membership! (or maybe some snow shoes... Do you think I could just strap a couple tennis rackets on my feet?)

Priscilla said...

It works in the cartoons!

LOL. You could do an experiment and write up a report for us, Martha. But I think tennis rackets may be just as expensive as snowshoes these days...

Martha said...

I think my husband might not like seeing his tennis racket strapped on my foot...

Wear his monkey suit and he won't notice your feet. :)

Shelly said...

Somehow I KNEW that we hadn't heard the last of the monkey suit. HAHA!!!

This man doesn't miss much.
