    Last month I wrote about snow tubing in the lower Midwest, but this time I wanted to cover some of the best places to go snow tubing in the upper Midwest. Snow tubing has been a tradition since the early 1900s.

We flocked to areas like Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota to watch the daring young Nordmenn jump and slide down local snow-laden hills. As popularity took over and spread throughout the Midwest, tubing, sledding and skiing became much more than a spectator sport. Today there are hundreds of resorts and parks throughout the Midwest that dedicate their efforts to the winter months, attracting thousands of snow sports fans every year.

  • Is It Time to Replace Your Helmet? 5 Signs That Indicate YES!

    Many of us spend a lot of money on a good quality helmet (or two or three), so when it comes time to replace your helmet, you may be a bit hesitant. It's understandable. I'm the same way.

But helmets are designed to keep our noggins safe during a crash (or lightning strike in some cases) and it's important to maintain your helmet and to replace it when the time comes.
