    Oh that was awesome. I am still laughing at your bloopers (sorry but they were really funny) How fast did you get the snowmobile up to? It looks kind of like dirt bike riding only cleaner and colder. Good music loving the Tom Petty. Can’t wait for the Flower and Garden episodes and we are only 4 episodes from the big 200. TFS

    Hey Rick! Thank you for the great ride on the Snowmobile. It looks like a great time! Aaannnddd… I am so happy to say we are not leaving WDW until the afternoon of April 20th so we will still be there if you do come on the 19th. 🙂
    I will message you on Facebook to see if we can find you on that Friday or Saturday. My family would be so happy to meet you!
    Thanks for another great video!

    Fantastic filming!! I felt like I was on that snowmobile!! The music during the first run was so perfect! And when you EVER changed the music for the bloopers: I was hysterical!! I had to watch the whole episode over again.!! I am saving this for a real hot summer day, so I can cool down!!!
    Love you all! You made my night!

    Great bloopers love when Brian flipped over the bars over and over and over (lol) Was your guide getting tiered of getting you unstuck all the time? Hope you bought him a hot toddy.

    Keep up the great work it lets us all see the world through your eyes.

    Cheers, Guy

    Hello again, Rick. This was just fantastic. Bloopers are always funny to watch. Everyone should keep in mind that it is not all funny when someone gets hurt, but I am happy that no one got hurt. Can not wait to see the next episode. I love landscape. I suppose you can consider gardening landscaping.


  8. John Broadwater says:

    Great show looks like your getting the hang of it. So I can’t wait until next show and you have a great week. thanks again

    Hey Rick,
    Great video. I have never been on a snowmobile. It looks really fun. Brian flipping on his is hilarious. Sorry Brian. Maybe some year I will check out the lodge. Were you at the Wilderness Lodge when you read the comments? And I do like a hot chocolate on a cold day. See you next week.
    P.S. Fact: The coldest temperature recorded in Harrisburg, PA was -22 degrees Fahrenheit recorded January 1994.

    Hi Rick! Really enjoyed this weeks Vidcast! Loved the background music that played during the Vidcast! Really added to the enjoyment! Really has us thinking of a “cold vacation” somewhere down the road!

    Looking forward to next weeks Flower & Garden episode!

    Hey Rick,

    I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful scenery in your video. It makes me want to go to Brook Lake Lodge in the winter and do some snowmobiling even though I don’t like being cold. I was wondering, how fast were you travling on the snowmobile?

    Rick, you forgot to ask us a question of the week. So, here is a question for you: Have you seen the movie “Oz The Great and Powerful”? What did you think of it? I saw the movie and I liked it.

    Seek you next week.



  12. Kevin Nelson says:

    Man that looks like fun! My boys and I ride on some trails on four wheelers and we love that but it doesn’t compare to all that snow and breath taking scenery! I’m so excited I won the weekly prize, so thoughtful of y’all, I’m thankful! Have an awesome week my friends at TWR, keep those smiles on!

    Hi Rick,
    We enjoyed your last episode. The bloopers were very funny. We met you last fall at the Food and Wine Festival in the Chase lounge. We watched your blogs every evening from the Dolphin Hotel and even after we got back home to Pennsylvania. We are looking forward to your Flower and Garden Festival reviews. We are so excited about the addition of the food booths. We have our trip planned from May 8th to 15th and will use your reviews to help plan our trip. Hope to meet up with you again sometime at our favorite place on earth.
    John, Lisa & Megan

    at some spots it looked like you were in the middle of nowhere! & you’re so right rick—what an awesome country in which we live…to go from sunny florida to all that snow is amazing!
    couple of things i’m curious about…were you sore the next day after riding? & how far from the lodge were you? i sure didn’t notice any rent-a-johns along the snowy path…
    really looking forward flower & garden festival videos…we’re gonna be there soon! take care.

    I’m new to your website but I have been watching your videos. I’m starting with the ones that really stick out to our family,but we are going to start at the beginning to catch them all. We have really enjoyed Food and wine festival show and best pool show. We will be at DisneyWorld for the World Series Softball Tournament in July for our daughters 16 and under travel team. Cant wait!!!


  16. Kathy Poche says:

    Wow – you really like them trees, huh Rick?! LOL Looks like so much fun. I wouldn’t be scared at all to fall down especially with all that snow. Cannot wait to see the next video. #200 is getting close!


  17. Steve says:
