Finally! We have new labels for the Fog Thief! These labels will stay on the units and are waterproof! The new labels will begin appearing on units that are orders starting in May.
We have the new Fog Thief video, made by As Seen on TV Productions, available straight from our website! You can see the video on our videos page or just watch the video below:
Fog Thief solves the helmet fog problem by directing your moist breath outside of the helmet where it would otherwise be trapped (this is what causes the fogging). Ride safe with the Fog Thief!
We have had requests to expand on the color availability of the Fog Thief and today we are happy to announce that the new colors are here!!
In addition to black and white, the Fog Thief is now available in the following additional colors: red, orange, yellow and blue. You can order these colors now through the Buy Online page. Stop your helmet from fogging up in style!
For those who inquired about pink: we are still working on it! Pink seems to be a special case for manufacturing so it will take more time to have these ready. We will make an announcement as soon as pink becomes available. Stay tuned to the Fog Thief website or the Fog Thief Facebook page to stay in touch for the update.
Two days ago, WMUR had a report on a snowmobiling accident that took place in Twin Mountain, NH. The original WMUR article stated: “James Atwood was riding on Trail 102 in Twin Mountain when he hit a treetop next to the trail, wildlife officials said. The wood impaled the machine and threw Atwood off the snowmobile.”
With a combination of snowmobile and the sled, James Atwood was taken to the Littleton Regional Hospital. He was released from the hospital on Saturday night. Investigation was being done on the crash site with officials saying “speed likely played a part.”
There is some criticism about money being wasted on this investigation as many feel this was just an accident. However, as snowmobiles are vehicles, this is normal procedure; if rider is found at fault, rider will be responsible for costs.
A family member of James’, Jodi, posted in the comments of the article stating: “Fortunately, James is doing well. Pretty shaken up but in good spirits. Thanks everyone who has wished him well!”
Make sure you keep a sharp eye out for any fallen tree branches – it can turn disastrous!
It’s that time again for more snow! For some folks this can be seen as bad news. But for snowmobilers, this is great news! So let’s get straight into the meat and see what Weather.com says about what is to be expected for today.
Weather.com has a handy winter conditions report by state you can check out.
There is also the live update of Winter Storm Titan published this morning with a few videos.
Normally, Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a symbol of the coming warm weather and love and all that good stuff. But this year has been different. The weeks surrounding the “warm and fuzzy” holiday has been viced in some snowy conditions.
We at the Fog Thief group are located in Virginia so we got some deep accumulation. Unfortunately, we have yet to stick a ruler in the snow to get an accurate measurement of what we got but it was enough to cover the tires of our vehicles. Me, specifically, could only see a small black sliver of what was once my hybrid car. Thank goodness for snow blowers!
We’re not out of the woods yet, though. More snow is being called for tonight.
Our area looks to be getting the “Wintry Mix” for tonight but there are plenty of areas that will be getting straight out snow, according to Weather.com with their forecast. Areas like Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio and others should be expecting more snow tonight. It is expected that 12-20 inches of snow is in our future.
Now we know most of our Fog Thief folks (what should we call you guys? Foggers? Thieves? Any suggestions?) are spread in other areas of the US so we wanted to pull up the forecast for other areas well. Horray for the National Forecast! Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan? It looks like you guys will have the coldest temperatures coming up tonight according to the weather forecast for February 14, 2014.
Make sure to stay on top the news for your area. If the conditions are favorable, it would be a great time to go out and snowmobile. For the rest? Stay inside and stay warm!
Just wanted to give everyone a heads up of a snowmobile show that is happening this month. The Waconia Ride In Event is taking place on January 24 – 26 in Waconia, Minnesota. The show starts at 8am on each day so you’ll want to be sure to get there early.
If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a well-known vintage and antique snowmobile show so you’ll get to witness a bit of history for yourself. It is a big enough show where they took aerial shots of the event live! Scroll down the page to see the photos. We have just one of the photos below:
It’s their 24th annual which means these guys have a lot of good years for their show.
They also already have their 2015 schedule in place where their 2015 show is January 23 – 25. Mark your calendars for that one, too!
The added bonus for this show? Instead of having to tow your trailer around, you can part it right at the show grounds. (Just make sure to have your trailer locked up before you head out.) How’s that for convenience?
