Lunch Break, the CBC radio show, today featured a segment on skidoos...which apparently first hit the market as "Autoboggans" in the 1950s. people first thought they would be a passing fad...but they're so popular up here that a recent study says that Northerners are actually condensed by extended skidoo use (the vertebrae in your spine fuse after repeated bounces...gee, i still want to try one...)

i took these photos during one of the skidoo weekends in Dawson, when a whole slew of American snowmobilers buzz into town. with its hood up, the skidoo really looks like an insect.
