In Mississippi the only sled-type things we were familiar with were trays dragged out of kitchens at the first sign of ice or snow. Even now I don't think I've ever seen a real sled except in pictures. But we had some great home-made skate-cars, which I guess could be categorized as "sled-type things." We used them for racing down hills on streets. It's a miracle that any of us survived to adulthood. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
