Arthur, Alvah Strout, Raymond Hanscom, and I had many FUN winters of snowmobiling . Thru thick and thin, we had fun. Duck Lake trips , Upper Middle Branch Pond trips, "UP HOME" trips in Amherst, Grand Lake Stream trips , "the hard way " and all the other trials and tribulations connected to snowmobiling, made up the faberic of our friendship. We were four men having more fun then four men should be allowed to have. I'll never forget. My best to you Hazel!!
