  1. North Adventure Inn

    Talked to a couple that stayed there last year. They were surprised restaurant wasn't open. Somewhat far (edge of town). Something to inquire about, if staying there.
  2. Sault Ste. Marie - Area

    Thanks for weather ( and trail ) update. Go light on the throttle from Goulais to Halfway Haven. The Yamaha Apex in our group was at the end of it's range on that route last year ( we pushed snow throughout the day, as I recall . "Get fuel in Goulais, there is no fuel in Searchmont AND carry spare fuel if leaving from the Sault."
  3. Planning a 2019 ride

    Met a guy that claimed he did it. We were at a Bills game, lots of b.s. and Bills Mafia comraderie, but he ( and his buddies ) assured me he completed the route. I'll send him a text. If looking for company, would like to join you ( and BOB - Buoy oh Boy ). Also met a father in law/ son in law combo at Bonfield, Ontario who staged Ontario<<New Brunswick<<Ontario from there. Bonfield made sense as a start for that return trip. Up north and easy exit east.

    Well said. Seemed to have had more ' gulp' moments with oncoming sleds than usual, this year.
  5. Helmet Suggestions

    I have a 4 year old BRP BVS2. No electric shield. Driven in minus 35 degrees without fogging up. Great product. Always thought I'd replace this visor with electric shield. Maybe not.

    Warp speed in Cochrane. Can't wait to hear about it.
  7. Rockys!

    We reviewed the Groomer SPOT trackers the night before heading out. Just in case someone on forum hasn't seen it before, here's the link: https://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0qIOqWqYfMncPh5IFYU3EcSEMd1062UX3

    "You can't sled from here to there". That was the issue for folks staying at Chateau Guay and Moonlight last weekend (and prior?) We had to trailer to Garson from Moonlight Hotel. 10 minutes by truck. Garson is a great launch spot. Snowmobile Groomer yard ("STP" - Sudbury Trail Plan). Just follow the groomer path out, LOL I'd rate hotels proximate to Sudbury snowmobile trails as: 1. Moonlight (it has continental breakfast included). Very clean. 2. Northland Motel (Chelmsford) - http://www.northland-motel.ca/West of the others. Trail north of there can get beat up. Would stay there if heading south, to Killarney / Manitoulin Island. Note that superior rooms (as they are called, are on ground floor. Something like 18 room on ground floor. And 18 rooms in basement. Stick with ground floor...pleasantly surprised by heated (or at least not cold) floor because of basement. 3. Chateau Guay - my old favourite (with onsite restaurant), but that was before seeing the super clean Moonlight and Northland. Look, these are modest hotels with a small degree of difference. Sportsman's is it's own animal and we've never stayed at Rocky's, Motel 6 or Ambassador. Chelmsfold was an eye opener - wide open out there. Don't need to traverse kms of trails before you actually get to open 'er up. Proximate to Windy Lake and that western loop.
  9. Good morning

    Don't get a speeding ticket lol Great pic

    With the weather we've had they should offer 50 % off an ATV if you buy a skidoo. At least you can ride somewhere ( roads, fields ). Like that Cookstown skidoo dealer in the 1980's - Boxing Day special. Buy one sled; 50 % off the second one. Looking forward to the new iron.

  12. TOP C trail at SRF

    Welcome back! Great questions yield information for everyone. I was also wondering about that section - held out hope that it might open. Would be nice to get up there once this year.
  13. Parry Sound Parking

    The Tim Hortons there ( Parry Sound travel centre) seems quiter than normal. Closes early when I was up last week. 8 or 10 pm. Odd for a highway Tim Hortons, imo.
  14. You say potato, I say potatoe lol Thanks Soupkids. Guys do enjoy Sportsman's. As for wifey in the Lodge (tall structure) on Valentine's Day.... I've just about run out of mulligans with my prior tyvek enclosed shelters, Doritos/ Pepsi in a gas station snowmobile trips. Mind you, single beds. She might go for that.
