We did it with just our feet...no skis.


Ski joŰring - WikipÚdia

Skijoring ('skē-jȯr-iŋ) is a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog (or dogs) or a motor vehicle. It is derived from the Norwegian word skikj°ring meaning ski driving.

Anyway....its dangerous and no way I would do it today.

Looks like Chicago has thawed out some. So have we in Houston. Really nice day today--sunny and in the 60's. Had the windows open.
