  1. Have not seen any reports since the last warm spell. Is there any snow left in the bush in this area? I'm sure it's hero, but ???
  2. A search of the Soo Star only shows that it was closed on Tuesday until further notice. I checked both Luc's and Russ's facebook pages, and no mention there either. .. and Mo is off in the sun yonder, so .... It would seem that at least Luc would have mentioned it if he is on the other side of it. Any updates? Any pics/video this time? .
  3. Plowed roads don't need to be a major issue to snowmachines - IF the grader guy set his wing level and 4' off the ground. This pushes the snow away from the road, and gives the skidoos a flat runway up top to ride. You still need to be carefull up there, but at least your not down on the sand and gravel. Maybe if the clubs would talk to the loggers, and request such - the grader driver likely doesn't think about it otherwise. .
  4. Well they had the big worsh out open in about 3 days that last time. The Queen takes 17 pretty seriously, but honestly, unless it's going to any of the North Shore communities or The Soo, Hwy 11 is safer anyhow for through traffic. .
  5. For late season conditions in Searchmont, you usually need to unload at the trailhead, maybe a 1/2 klick or so further out from Carl's. You can park there, or take your truck up to Carl's and walk back. Wawa will depend on how tight Wawa Lake is. I don't think that there is any trail into town other than the lake anymore, so ... I know that Algoma Ice has not been all too good this year doo to not much real cold weather, and lots of snow blanketing. Call your motel in Wawa if staying there for lake conditions. I recommend The Bristol Motel if you don't have anything lined up. They will be the most in touch with conditions. Unless you are riding strait from Halfway up to Dubreuil? Again - that puts you mostly out on Whitefish Lake in ??? conditions. With the warm-up (can't ride the edge of the road) I don't know if there is a trail from Anjigami up to Hawk Junction or not? I know that there usta be a marked trail out there before, but I don't know where that comes from or goes to. ??? Also - I don't know if there is gas in Hawk anymore. It could be difficult for a stock machine to run from Halfway up to Hornepayne w/o doglegging through Wawa. .

    Looks like you should easily be able to ride the river right into town! .
  7. "Day" Trail Passes?

    What's with the 2 day min rule? We would be buying 2 days anyhow, but what about someone that wants to come up for a Sunday to try it out? And for any local that decides that he wants to dig the old sled out and ride with the guys "tomorrow"? A free weekend, but not a 1 day pass? ??? .
  8. "Day" Trail Passes?

    I figgered so, but I haven't bought a "day" pass in .... well, not sure if I ever have? .
  9. "Day" Trail Passes?

    I have a chum that will possibly be buying a weekend type pass. Possibly for next weekend, but - not likely. I sent him the link to purchase them, and he said that it looked like you needed to doo it in advance so that they had time to mail them to you. Shirley there is something that can simply be printed out eh? .
  10. I will X2 the Blueberry. We staged there once March/96. They have plenty of parking area since they are a campground which isn't usually quite to capacity this time of year. They are 1.5 clicks N of the bottom of "the big hill" on 17. I've never used any of the other features as we rolled in at 2am or later and was on the trail the next AM. I doo have the t-shirt tho. As you can tell from the pic, it was a rough trip up! .
  11. With that logic then - you may as well close down the regional specific boards. I ride the north only. I seldom look anywhere else unless I'm bored to absolute tears. .
  12. Sure would be nice if the updates for the NORTH were in the NORTH forum.... .
  13. Snowmobile Fatalities 2016-2017

    I have AT LEAST one cheap compass squirreled away somewhere in my britches, and at least one more somewhere in the sled. However - while I have gotten accustomed to crossing questionable ice, I never like to stop on it. And if I doo stop on it, I always like to be the last sled coming to a stop as I don't want some joker to pull up right beside me and park. 10' away will be plenty close - thank you very much! So - what I'm saying there is that I would prefer to dig through my britches looking for a compass while going slow, as to stop and dig through the sled in a white out. .
  14. Best ride ever today

    How long have you been up in Winnipeg? .
  15. Say Hey to Mr. Lightfoot for me when you're in the area eh? .
