  1. Did a 1000km trip in Feb with two 800 and a 600 Poo, a 800 e tech and a 1200 4 tech. Mileage between the 5 sleds was very cllose.

    My sympathies to the city folk

    Only had to trailer once this season and that was to Cochrane between Xmas and new years. We were able to ride right from the back door of the sled shack in gravenhurst all winter right up until Sunday. 2000 mile season is nothing to sneeze at for me. Had some good trail rides, some great trail rides, some not so good trail rides, some great lake conditions and some awsome boon docking from Jan 15th until March 11th. Not as bad a season as it appeared.

    Trail ride Saturday with Mrs.Doonut and Killswitch and then Sunday will be KS's first day to experience some boondocking. She's dying to try riding the out back in some of Dad's secret play places. Hope for snow, curses on Mother Nature if it turns to rain.

    winter bicycles on snowmobile trail

    Known locally as the Old Bala road or the Settlement road. That ws originally 169 long before there was a 169. Imagine that being the only route from gravenhurst where the trains stopped to bala.
  5. Hoping to get some bondocking in Sunday pending conditions. Anyone wants to tag along and see some real Muskoka is welcome to come along. With the current conditions, even standard tracked sleds will have no problems accessing some really beautiful country. As long as you're not afraid of the chance of getting a scratch or two from tree branches on your sled, you should consider coming along. Novice booner to advanced rider terrain available in Doonut's playground

    winter bicycles on snowmobile trail

    That was Snowcrest trail 9 we were on Monkey boy. It's actually a non maintained road so I suspect they had the legal right to be there. They were courteous and moved to the side to let us pass but I wouldn't want to come around a blind corner and meet a pack of them head on. "What is bicycle bowling for 1000 Alex?"

    What has been your best sledding accessory?

    I use 4 pulley blocks, a combination of caribeaners, some webbing straps tied into various length loops and 5/16" parachute cord. I can lift a 500 plus pound sled off the ground with one hand. It can be rigged in multiple ways for leverage or length, weighs about 2 pounds and fits in one freezer bag in my tunnel bag along with the kitchen sink

    Bubblers, Another Hazard to Watch For

    Criminal code of Canada C46, subsection 263. read it, know it. If you go into a bubbler hole, it will come in handy for the court case.
  12. Did you know the PET ride is that weekend in Gravenhurst when you picked it?

    New Snow In The Skokes

    Because the MSR asked Snowcrest to stop grooming that section of MSR trail. Thats why. Same reason the 44 trail is still closed. MSR has not gone thru it yet and requested SC to refrain from dong so.
  14. Ya, its been my main stomping grounds for over 30 years. I pre ran 3 different routes on Friday and picked the least destructive one for the group ride Saturday.
