    Beer cans on trails

    It's never needed any cleaning when I've been there. It is not owned or maintained by the club. The landowner cleans it daily and makes sure the fire is going if someone hasn't already started it.

    I think I know the "Hut" you are talking about if its between Monkton and Milverton. I won't leave beer cans but would gladly leave a couple of bucks to help out if there is a safe place to do so Dave. We have stopped at that hut many times over the years and appreciate that it's always clean and warm.

    I don't have a problem with riders having a beer at lunch but the reality here is that people throwing empties on the trail are in all likelihood breaking at least 2 laws, creating more opportunity for hurting others and themselves plus jeopardizing our trail systems' future. Proper on trail enforcement by the police would curtail some of this issue but at present most of these guys realize the chances of them getting caught is minimal and they just don't care about other riders on the trails or the trails future JMHO.

    Alongside the Baie Comeau now. A long day getting through to Midland

    I was just looking at the Radison's tracking and it looks like she got through the ice ridges and is currently just north of Beckwith Island inbound to Midland.

    The ice thickness on the Ontario side of Lake Huron this winter has been a challenge. A USCG boat trying to break ice into Goderich Harbour had to be freed by the Griffin in Mid February. The Radisson is the best ice breaker the Canadian Coast Guard has on the Great Lakes.

    The long and short of this discussion is that the MTO controls what is done permit wise. Their systems are set up on permitting the vehicle whatever type it may be. I don't believe they would agree on a different system for one type of vehicle while maintaining their validation sticker system.

    LOL Can I get a 10 year permit implanted in the middle finger of my left hand so I can just wave when going past??

    OFSC survey

    Tedious for the riders and enforcement. We have little to no enforcement now from the OPP and the number of patrolling MNR officers in many areas of Ontario is minimal to say the least. Not too likely that we will see more provincial government resources added for trail permit enforcement even though that is needed. Pass through trail checks where the sleds with visible permits get waved through would not happen. If there were checks there would be lineups in many high traffic areas due to the time required for riders being checked getting their permits out to show officers and then put away again after checking.

    I'm in the opposite situation. I have 2 sleds but 4 drivers. It would end up costing us twice as much. Enforcement would likely be an even more tedious process if permitting the driver was used.

    OFSC Trail Guide

    I have found with the ITG sometimes if you zoom in and out at one point in the screens voyage the town name may appear and then at next magnification the name will disappear again. It does seem to be hit and miss though. As for getting a response, I have received no message back about the amount of available km's. on the ITG being overstated. Don't think I will hold my breath waiting for a response on that query.

    ITG AVAILABLE KM'S

    So the ITG shows 5930 km. of trail available right now. I took the time to trip plan approx. 80% of the yellow and green trails this morning. My total was 2,365 km. If I generously add 30% for the trails I didn't include, the total would be 3074 km. or 51% of the available trail km's listed. Mistake or has somebody has built in a 3000 km. fudge factor for some reason? Haha!

    Sorry Ramsomair but I screwed up my post somehow. I have edited it to what I originally wanted to say. I think your idea would be awesome BTW.
