In winter, the roads in our neighborhood are not plowed. So, we park off the main road and travel by other means to our property, about 1/4 mile from the vehicle.

Many times we have to carry things and we travel like this:

There are even occasions when Eden manages to talk me into a sweet ride like this:

Then picture in your mind's eye two totally crazy 20-something thrill seeking kick-ass skiers riding this contraption down the hill to our house. Yeah. I wish I had my camera.
