Earth Postcard
This is my 200th blogged postcard! To honor this event I decided to design a postcard to send out to a few special people who’ve been sending me cards consistently since I started this postal hobby. It seems fitting to step back and share a few of my favorite Going Postal moments.

Nick's Powersports Postcard
In honor of this ski-dootastic postcard that I designed for my coworker, I have decided to share some lovely and interesting facts about snowmobiles.


The modern snowmobile is the result of several trials and advancements in transportation across snowy and other wise impenetrable terrains. Some early vehicles included modified bicycles, steam powered sleighs and Model Ts that were modified with tractor tires and skis. However, the first truly recognizable snowmobile in the United States was patented in June of 1916 which featured front skis and rear tracks.

With further refinements and lighter engines the first modern open cockpit style snowmobiles hit the market under the name “Ski-doo”. In the 1970s there were over 100 manufactures that sold nearly two million snowmobiles from 1970 to 1973. Most of these companies went out of business due to the oil crisis of 1973 or were bought up by larger outfits.

I made this card for Karmen in honor of our beloved Facebook waste of time, Cityville. This card serves no significant purpose other than to show you how much of a nerd I can really be from time to time.
