Today we went ice fishing. The man showing us how to do it, dug the snow off, then drilled a 40cm hole down into the thick ice with a giant corkscrew. That's deep! Also, today mum and dad hired us sleds. They're awesome! They look like this.
The steering wheel controls the front ski, which turns the rest of the sled. The seat looked big enough for two people, it fitted Wil and I, but when we tried to ride it together, we flipped off the path into a snow drift. It was too much weight on the back end, causing it to turn too fast on the weighted pivot point.
The pedals are the brakes, they don't really work... which is good, if they worked, then I might use them! When they don't work it's much more fun! On the end of the brake pedals, there were metal teeth, that grated into the snow when you put your foot down. Happily, it doesn't dig in deep enough to do much. Up here in Norway, they don't make you wear helmets. That gets mum and dad really worried. I can prove Norway wrong by looking at Wil's head. He fell off his sled while doing a long skid. Short sharp skids are better.
