Cross Country Skiers Needed

Are you looking for some company on your cross country ski adventures? Or, maybe looking for some new and interesting trails? Possibly, you just seek some fresh air and a new form of exercise? Allen Crabtree has the answer to all the above.

Starting in January, Allen Crabtree and his neighbors would like other adults to join them on Sunday afternoons, cross country skiing.

Allen would like to host the first event at his place, on Bridgton Road in Sebago. Then, he’s hoping, another participant will choose to host the next one and so on. That way, everyone would get to see and try out new locations.

To find out the first ski day and time, call Crabtree at 787-2730.

Snowmobiling in Sebago and Beyond

Snowmobiling is very popular here, as we have so much snow and so many trails. Well, a lot of my neighbors just drive down our road, but they are no doubt headed to trails. I only wish my own family owned a sled. But, until such time, I am

researching. I happened to come across an interesting Web site that might interest other snowmobile enthusiasts. I found the link to it right from our own Town of Sebago Web site, from which I get so much information. Go to to find trail information, and, of course, safety tips.

This time of year, the ice is not thick and I always worry about everyone who thinks it is safe. The ice won’t be thick enough at least until the end of January. I would like to learn more about the Branch Duckers, the Sebago snowmobile organization. If you are a member? know a member? Let me know, I would love to write about you. If you have any photographs of trips you’ve taken, please e-mail them to me, or send them in the mail for future columns.
