ALL MUSICAL CONTENT PROVIDED BY TONE X. I was bored and decided to take the sled out for a bit. I went to a place about 5 miles away. Rice Lake State Park.... I haven't been there in years and I told myself I would make a trip out there in the future. It was snowing so the video quality wasn't the best at times.

I have to give a shout out to TONE X for the awesome tracks he makes. I am always willing to promote his music in the non-profit videos I make.
