Especially the preservation
of the USA, Family and Vintage Sleds.
Those three categories always lead to alot of conversations between us.
We were part of a comprehensive cycle with more than vintage snowmobiles.
The beginning, middle and end of many projects that was part of one
big project that was ever changing. It added up to alot of good times.
I spoke to Jerry five times his last day, just hours before he died.
He was living strong with great spirit and excited about many things.
Jerry never wasted time with
anything he did, so his passing was
respectfully sudden and complete in the same fashion he lived.

WHITE'S BOOTS ~ LINEMAN
June 2014 - Jerry Kienbaum sweeping the floor of the empty Museum.
The Northwest Museum of Vintage Snowmobiles main showroom is empty.
Over 130 Vintage Sleds have sold since October of 2012, bringing an end
to the biggest collection & display of race sleds & trail sleds in the Northwest.
When asking Jerry if he is gonna miss the Museum, he replied:
"No ! It was a joy building, during and ending it, and I still have some nice sleds
and even have a sled on the bench to restore this winter." "I met some really
neat folks throughout the entire duration and learned alot too. The
sleds sold have found good homes and will continue to be appreciated."
It was a Great Day!
19 Sleds to Willow River and an ABUNDANT amount of Mercury Parts too !
