    End of an Era

    A sad day but it sounds like your mom got to ride for a lot of years. I hope I'm still riding when I get to her age.

    Honestly wait until March if you can get some decent rides in up north I the mean time, then head up there when things get thin it's well worth it. You will not be disappointed. Yes its 10hours so plan on 2 days travel. The super 8 is a great place to stay as well as the comfort inn.

    She's 84 & has always been an outdoors person. I guess it goes w/ growing up there. The folks never had any interest in going south during the winter. You mentioning those sleds, I laughed once when someone was wishing for the good ole days. I'm pretty sure they weren't born before the OFSC trail permits went into effect across the province.

    Ofsc site not showing any of trails for me

    Not sure if this is where my son and I went wrong last year but we ended up way way north of any trail. We actually had a blast playing in the deeeeep snow. Finally found a couple guys fishing on some lake that told us we where way way off the trail. Still had fun.

    End of an Era

    Sold mother's sled and the buyer picked it up today. Her 1st sled was a new Elan: which she had for 1 weekend LOL. A couple more 'doos 300 Oly & a '79 300 Citation which she really liked. Since 'doo didn't make a smaller 'proper' sled when it was time to replaced it, she jumped ship to Poo & bought a '92 Indy Lite. Another Indy Lite & then a Indy 340: (not sure of the year). After piling up the miles on it she hesitantly got a 2003 550 Indy Classic. She was unsure of how she'd like it as it was the largest 'physically' that she'd be riding. Turns out she never had a problem w/ it. A few trips to the Calabogie area, a RAP tour & a Apsley to Parry Sound trip to rack up just over 6,000 miles on it. She only got out twice the last 2 winters what w/ the lousy weather & the !@#^show getting out of Apsley when we do have snow. I asked her if she wanted to get a trail permit for her sled when I was ordering mine. She said she'd think about it. A couple of days later she said no and that she'd be ready to sell it. A couple of pics from last season's ride:

    Oh I understood completely. My inference was some day the media will freak out about kids under 16 'running amok' on the OFSC trails...

    Maybe you misunderstood me. I was referring to youths under 16 driving a VEHICLE on the roads, as opposed to a legally licenced 12 year old riding a sled on the trail.

    Welcome to OC - Please read this first

    Welcome to OC Paul. First thing you have to do is quit calling that Poo a Skidoo LOL

    I ran into him & the missus the other week @ a shop. I wasn't fawning over being in the same room as a celebrity (I'll leave that to the sledders from Hearst LOL), but I wasn't impolite either. I'm sure there are others in the sport that have been around it longer than him that would make for better ambassadors (or @ least pay their own way).

    Don't even talk about that! The media had major $%^&fit years ago when they broke the story when kids younger than 16 were crossing roads on their snowmobiles. They confronted the Minister in charge of the MTO about this. Before you could say 'complete overreaction', the regs were changed. AFAIK, nothing tragic had happened, just the media going on about something they knew nothing about...

    x 200... I wholeheartedly agree, SJ. We can only hope this well-written message will eventually and finally get through to the a$$hats who are the big offenders.

    That guy has never volunteered to cut a single branch, nor place a single stake . Unless a cheque was cut he would not lift a finger . Parasite riding on the backs of volunteers is an apt description.

    You can rent them with horses - didn't know that! Wonder if it would work with retired officers - Cam Wooley is pretty active after a distinguished career with the OPP. Use to enjoy his reports on highway 400. I guess Fantino didn't like them much though.

    Having just come in from doing my own sled repairs in the driveway today - valve cover leaking, nice day to fix it - it occured to me that you can write all you want about trespassers, blah blah blah madder than hell blah blah blah etc. but has someone who has spent as much time on the trails as the writer and his band of obsequious sycophants (thanks revrnd) actually followed through on any of the strategies mentioned in the article? No evidence of it. Why does everyone else have to "step up"? Let's see some leadership by example. Then he'll be earning his pay.

    Wow. Left field. Multi use trails are not even being discussed, and you are now arguing with yourself. Fact is, any trail in a municipality sans those on a open road can have the speed limits changed by council. Nobody said any would do so, just that they are empowered to do so. You then dispute this fact by claiming land owners have a say in the speed limits as if they were asked when 50 was decided on, they were not. You would argue black is white and throw a fit when it is proven you are wrong . The opp could not close the 401 down to have zero tolerance ,but sleds ,are different , much like they stop every sled they see now , at times lining up people to do it . Grow up.

    You got me curious so I looked it up. I couldn't find one for OPP but did Toronto Police. It's not as bad as I thought it would be for Paid Duty.

    Do you have any idea what a rent a cop costs. Figure on at least the cost of one permit per hour.

    Unfortunately it's 8 hrs 45 min from home. That doesn't include stops to; pick up the sleds, gas, lunch, washroom. Likely 10 hrs. one way. The itch to ride is making it a bit tempting though.
