Joe rode the mare mule back to the post, harnessed the team and hitched them to one of Snedeker's bobsleds.
While they loaded the meat on the bobsleds, Joe was silent, preoccupied by his confused feelings about Ellis.
The various forms of coasting with toboggan sleds and bobsleds are all well known to boys who live where there are snow and hills.

All marks of the bobsleds runners were long since lost under the new snow.
