Hey guys,

The reason is the cold dry air. Your nostrils are dry... Very common. .You could use a humidifer in your bedroom.... or get a vaporizer with steam coming into the room. Many people do this...... Di

You ride your snowmobiles through bear infested mountains, sing and play country music in bars, love beer, fish and hunt (probably with beer) in the wilderness near Mt. St. Helens....lol and you want me to pick out how you get nose bleeds? I'm with divo ~ dry air...lol...Get some saline nose spray. Oh, and stop banging your head on trees when you are frustrated. LOL.
