NEW ZEALAND BOYS COAST ON MUD (Mar, 1933)
NEW ZEALAND BOYS COAST ON MUD
American boys wait for a good snowfall to get out their sleds, but any day is a good day for coasting, in New Zealand. Snow is a rarity in the even, bracing climate of the islands, so the youngsters do the next best thing and coast on mud! Wooden sleds are used, and a bare slope is flooded with water for the sport. Frequent wettings keep the sun from drying up the course.
