TXC276, Thanks for the share. In the article from Arctic Insider Dale wrote about his first sled being a 10hp Ski Doo. Then he talks about buying his first racer from Ray Christen in Fertile MN in 1968. Well about that time my dad was looking for a used sled for my brother and I . We ended up at Fertile Hatchery one night and our dad bought us a well used 10hp Ski Doo from Ray Christian. Makes me wonder did we grow up riding a piece of history. It was a great starter sled for sure. We named it the "Ruptured Duck." Don't know what happened to it. Dad probably traded off for a Sno*Jet.
