The wooden tobaggan, crazy carpets, snow racers, all fine products for racing down hills covered in snow however are they worthy of being dubbed the ‘fastest toboggan on the hill’?
The answer has yet to be determined but one point was definitely made on the show this morning, the fact that us ‘grown ups’ still have a trick or two up our fleece covered arm.
And then we heard from the true prairie toboggan vets, like the dude who who nailed a 2×4 to a dozen single skis and called that a toboggan. Or the cat that sprays down the bottom of his ride with cooking oil to get all the speed he can.
Of course no toboggan story would be complete without hearing from the farming contingent where tractor inner tubes and grain shovels make for a fast ride. (and one of my personal favorites by the way)
Now if you don’t have a toboggan you still weren’t out of luck. Canoes, car hoods and even waxed pieces of cardboard can carry you through to the bottom of the hill.
Personally, I’m still opting for the 3 person wooden toboggan, complete with a thin layer of Pam/ski wax on those runners, after it’s been sanded down of course.
