Can opposum`s pull a sled?
Depends on how many you have and how big the sled is.

Oh, and how many K3's you don't have on the sled.

It occurred to me that I should not buy a K-3 until Ricoh provides a kit so that I can put my OWN NAME on the back of the camera.

Actually TORBEVEST is a small hill in South Dakota near Hetland. Locals call it Mt. Torbevest. Name came from an itinerant pots and pans salesman back in the Depression, whose name was Torvald, shortened to Torbe. Torvald dressed in a tuxedo, complete with vest and cummerbund and was legendary for selling no new fangled aluminum pots or pans. He also traded,in cast iron cookware which was well received. Torvald's Model A Ford succumbed to the weight of cast iron, went into a ditch, and floated down the Missouri River. Ultimately Torbe and his A became a shoals near Hocir, Arkansas close to the confluence of the Yazoo and Mississippi. Torbe never had a chance to buy a K3.

I do believe it is a conspiracy between geeky scientists who want dates and weather bunnies that are using them to further their careers!! Nothing like bad weather to get additional air time!!

Below 20? Temps here at 47 degrees North will be -30F. I share your pain. If Spring ever arrives, we should both buy a K3.

Walker, Minnesota with temps below 0 for the entire month has no story in the local paper about the weather. News is that Walleyes are biting in thirty feet of water on Walker Bay. Also, Aunt Jessie is visiting her granddaughter in Park Rapids. No word yet on the results of that visit.

Oh, and how many K3's you don't have on the sled.
Possums showed up in Minnesota a few years ago. Mostly in the south and Cities. (we call everything south of Little Falls "the cities"). New invasive marsupial. Possibly deadly to Toyotas and squirrels. Good news is they don't get into the lakes and hang on the propellor of your outboard motor like zebra mussels. And they do not leap out of the St. Croix river and slap you in the head at twenty knots.
