Q: Does a vintage caboose count as a vintage trailer?

Our camp in Caroga Lake makes winter trailer-ing a blast, especially when using the '75 Polaris and caboose. Never let 30 degree below zero temperatures slow you down. Because we are fortunate to have a state campground directly across from our camp (cabin) in Caroga, winter is as much, if not more FUN than any other time of the year!
Vintage snowmobilers are called "old dogs..." so the caboose not only is used to tow our gear, but a stuffed dog, vintage lunch kits and thermoses, and tow ropes and tools should we break down along the trail. These old machines had absolutely no suspension, so moguls tend to make the ride a little rough.

Having first ridden snowmobiles in northern Ontario in the sixties, this Polaris is
called "The Canadian Chick" - and sports her own logo, with pride. My sister, Lori, is a super sleuth when it comes to great vintage finds - and I have her to thank for this vinyl sticker.

To find out more about vintage snowmobiles, click here. Facebook has many vintage snowmobile pages and groups, too. Visit a show any time of the year, you will fall in love!

More helpful information about snowmobiling can be found on our statewide website, managed by the New York State Snowmobile Association, click here.

Our cabin is magical, as is almost any location in the Adirondack Park. It houses our five snowmobiles in the winter, and a few of our campers in the summertime. Caroga Lake has a wonderful history - and you cannot spend time in the Adirondacks without wanting to know more about local lore.

Please share your favorite historical haunts in the Adirondacks! Then pack up your favorite thermos and head for the hills, any time of the year.

Happy Trails,
Chatty Cathy

My favorite Ebay purchase in January? This vintage picnic kit, sporting two thermoses and a sandwich box. Perfect for caboosing in the Adirondacks!
