10. Ride the elevator at the Tower of History and look out onto the Soo Locks from the observation deck.

11. Watch the Soo I-500 snowmobile races the first weekend in February.

Almost half a century worth of snowmobile technology between this and my last post. Bobby Menne (@menne131) was kind enough to turn some laps on his Soo 500 race sled for me yesterday near his home in Virginia, Minnesota. The heavily modified Polaris snowmobile is a 170 horsepower oval racer that hits 110mph on the straightaways before getting pitched sideways around the corners repeatedly throughout the 500 mile race. You can say what you want about people racing in circles but I assure you the guys involved in this sport are as gnarly as they come. 👊✊😬💯 #snowmobile #snowmobiling #ovalracing #soo500 #i500 #sooi500 #polaris #team131 #131racing #racing #winter #ice #iceracing #frozen #drift #nsp #nostyle #nostyleproductions #photobyjoewiegele
